Finally need a lift kit

I have decided that it is time to finally make a decision on what brand of lift kit to buy. However, I was recently advised of a new problem that I might have. I have an 89 YJ wit a hardtop and have just replaced the engine with a small block 350 Chevy. Will this combo be to heavy for a normal liftkit?

I really didn't want to go over 2.5" of lift but I am worried that all of the kits that I read about will sag with the extra weight. Any help or tips will be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Wow! I never thought I would say this, but a Procomp system might actually work well for you (since it's so still). Like any other suspension, it will settle some.

I made the mistake of putting Rancho RS 5000's on my girlfriend's YJ and found out just how STIFF those things are. In your case, they would probably last longer and prevent your travel from bottoming out.
