Hopefully I will order my 2" BDS lift this weekend, I will also need a body lift and a motor mount lift, which ones are recommended?

I have a savvy BL and it was really easy to install the two spacers under the grill.

Nice. I should've gotten those when I added my lift but I didn't have the cash so I just reused my factory ones.
