Daystars or Rusty's 2.5" & Rough Country are popular.
You can search the forums and find lots of good info like this :

just a note, by the time you have spent money on the spring spacers you have spent about half of the money that could have gone towards real lift springs, better shocks etc. Depending on how many miles your KJ has you may not see as much lift as is advertised as your springs may already be tired. Adding a spacer to the mix will only further accelerate the lousy ride on stock high mileage springs on libertys. I have searched many forums wondering what the cheapest way of lifting my KJ is and have decided to wait and get decent springs, shocks, mounts to do it the right way. Found a lead on a 2.5 set of coils out of an 02 for 125$ on my local CL. You just have to keep your eyes open for deals and you will be impressed with the improved ride as well as the reliable lift from lift springs as opposed to lift spacers.

Going the cheap route is most always the wrong route!

Do the research and you'll end up saving money in the long run by doing it right the first time!

Spend the extra money and do it right the first time with Old Man Emu H.D. lift coils (#927 front, #948 rear), Rancho RSX 17505 front shocks, any brand of rear shocks for a 2000-2002 Dodge Durango can be used for extra extended lenght.


While the front is all apart, installing Jeepin By Al's upper A-arms would also be a good idea. Also, add extended 3" bump stops front and rear. A free 3/8" clevis lift can be added to the front for a 3/4" boost and an extra upper rear spring isolater added for
1/2" boost.

Only the frankenlifts using Rancho front shocks are discontinued. Can't exactly keep making something with parts that are discontinued
