BB Questions

After just putting 3/4" spacers on to correct winch sag I need to put on new shocks. Looking at this as an opportunity to put a small lift on. Trying to keep the price around $300. Here's what I've figured out so far, tell me what I've overlooked.

Option 1:
Skyjacker Hydro Ride Shocks for 2" lift
OME 2.5" Lift Springs (Std or HD?)
Teraflex 2" Spacers for Rear

Option 2:
Skyjacker Hydro Spacer Kit (Shocks / 4 2" Spacers)
New XJ Springs

I want it to be level, the winch adds some weight to the front.

Option 1 would allow me to use my spacers if needed, but with 2.5" lift springs I doubt it would be.

Option 2 does not allow me to reuse my spacers (can't have 2 spacers right?) so would the XJ springs end up being level?

Best option would be a JKS ACOS but that isn't in the budget

Don't tell me I've stumped JF?

After thinking this through I'm wondering if spending the extra money on the ACOS may be the cheapest way to go in the long run. Instead of OME springs in the front put JKS ACOS spacers and then use Teraflex Spacers. Sticking with the Skyjacker Hydro steps.

Can anyone that has an ACOS tell me how hard it is to adjust?

Thanks!

I haven't lifted yet, but your option 1 is just what I was thinking. I don't yet have a winch either, but it would bring up the front. And as you said, if you need additional height in front, you can use the 3/4" spacer.
