So when i look up lift kits I see two types, one is just four round ( maybe rubber ) pieces the other is shocks springs but I dont see the round pieces.... can anyone help,
The 4 round rubber pieces are coil spring spacers. They are typically 2" tall and go on top of the stock springs to lift your Jeep 2" higher. You would need to replace your shocks with longer ones as well. These lifts are inexpensive and are commonly called budge boosts or BB.
They make 2" and larger lift kits for WJ's with replacement coil springs and shocks. The higher you go the more parts you need to upgrade and the higher the costs.
If you are a beginner I would recommend a 2" budget boost and some new shocks. Popular brands around here are Iron Rock Offroad, Rustys Offroad, Rough Country, and Fat Bob's Garage.

No. At 3", you want the springs, shocks, track bar (preferable adjustable), rear end links, preferably new spring isolators, and preferably a new heavy duty steering stabilizer to help with the larger tires.
Kolak is a great chap and will set you up. Or you can look on the classifieds here, BB's show up now and then. The spacers are pretty much the same regardless who you buy them from. Get new shocks though, might as well buy them for a 3" lift, you'll probably end up there anyway

I bought my kit from Kolak, it was perfect for me. I have the 2" BB, Bilstein Shocks, and I went with 245 70R 17 Cooper A/T3's (Almost a 31" tire), no trimming required, and that tire size will fit in the spare well. I had the UpCountry springs, so I am 3" higher than stock, with 2" larger tires. To me, it looks perfect, it should have looked this way from the factory.
Nick, you don't understand...why do a Search to read old threads, or use the up-arrow button to read posts from a few days ago, when one can just start a new thread? Many are able to ask, a fewer number seem good at reading or listening...
To the OP, just contact Kolak. Even if you don't buy from him (although you should - he is well known for service and pricing), he is very helpful and could help refine your options.
