Wj Wj Lift spacers with shocks or lift springs and shocks

So looking for some advise. I'm saving up for the RC long arm kit. But want to lift it a little bit now.. Should I go with the 2 inch spacer kit with shocks, or the 2.5 inch spring kit with shocks. (Both kits are from Rusty's offroad) Looking for pros and con's for both.. This is my first jeep. Used to have a 90 yota pickup.. So new to jeeps and solid front axles..

Either way you go, it's gonna be about the same amount of work. If it was me, I would do the spacers with shocks. Not whole new springs. I don't know why, that's just me. I got my 2" coil spacers off of eBay for $100 and used them for over a year. But, at the same time, I would wait and keep saving because in the end, chances are you're not going to be able to lift with long arms and not have to spend the extra money on more parts. First thing, if your Jeep doesn't have a double cardan(correct me if I'm wrong fellow Jeepers) driveshaft, you're gonna have to either buy a new custom one, or find a junkyard one. The list goes on and on.

Thank you. Ya I went and bought the spacers with new shocks. Should be here next week. I don't thinkmy wj has the CV style drive shaft. But not sure. And I'm not worried about how hard it is to work on it. I'm a 10 year automotive dealer tech. So I've done most of it on other peoples cars.. Lol.. Just new to the jeep world..
