best lift kit for restored 76 5

I restored a 76 CJ 5 and I'm looking to put just a little lift on it. I"m thinking 2 and a half. My current springs are original and the bushings are worn so my jeep goes wherever it wants. I want a little lift to make it look better. I put a rough country 6in short arm kit on my 99 TJ and it is junk!!! But I"m sure that their spring lift for a CJ is ok. Any input is appreciated. Looking to spend 5 to 7 hundo!!! thanks jeepers!

And you would be absolutely wrong.

I have a 2-1/2"BDS on my '76 CJ-5 and couldn't be happier with it.

it was the cheapest. Couldn't afford the others.

I'm running 33X12.5" with it. (and a 1" Body lift)
