3.5 suspension system

Hello guys, I'm new around here and I have a 2006 limited GC completely stock. A friend of mine offered me a complete suspension (front and rear coils King Spring and 4 pro shock shocks) to get 3.5".

Now my question is... Isn't 3.5 to much for just 4 coils and 4 shocks? Shouldn't I use some other parts? I've seen post of super lifts and they seem to use a lot more parts for many other things! Since I'm a noob with this kind of stuff, I wouldn't want to do it wrong! So could you give me some advice? Thx!!!

First. You would need a coilover or strut set up for the front, the WK's dont have a live front axle
Second. 3.5" might be ok with out the superlift relocation/drop parts. the Rockcrawler claims a 3.5" lift but im not 100% sure thats true. If anything you could just buy the parts needed from superlift.

You can do 3.5" but you will want some new stuff to make it work better. Primarily UCAs designed for a lift like RRO or JBAs, and an adjustable track bar.

Also that is as high as you would want to go without the Superlift suspension drop in the center

Have anyone heard about the pro shop shocks? I haven't been able to find decent information regarding them! Super lift goes way out of my budget! I just use the car 4 month a year and its not always off roading! I've heard that the wk can get to 3 or 3.5 inches with no mayor trouble
