Jeep TJ Lift kit

this is my first lift and i was looking at this kit : http://www.roughcountry.com/jeep_tj_2.php
and was wondering if i needed to change any steering components for the additional lift? and any recommendations for an economic lift kit
Thanks for any responses!

Steering will be fine on a 2in lift. I'd look just using their springs and ordering different shocks from another company.

The general consensus is they ride like ****. Checkout Bilstein. Doing a little research on this subject might help too.
