Linkage questions with 2" lift

Hi everyone, just got a jeep TJ last week and looking to doing a 2" lift on it for when i go up to the trails. I've heard that V8 ZJ coils will give about 2" of lift. I was wondering a few things though:

1) Would ZJ coils for the rear also lift up the rear end as well
2) Will I need to change out my shocks for this mod
3) Will I run into any issues with the transfer case linkage or shifter linkage

Sorry for the noob questions, it's my first wrangler. Thanks again

1: no idea.
2: Yes.
3: No, a body lift is what screws that up.

Also, would installing a 2-3" coil lift affect my top speed. I've got the 2.5L engine if that helps

You would be better off buying a 2.5" lift from rough country for a couple hundred bucks.

I would but i like the idea of having lift coils instead of spacers. If I want, i can get the spacers at work for extremely cheap, but i can also pick up some junkyard coils for 20 bucks and have more suspension travel. I am

Oh my bad, I hadn't checked out their website. Most of what I've heard of their stuff involved lift spacers

RC springs are great because they are so long but their shocks really leave something to be desired. I would go with RC or OME springs and teraflex or OME shocks. I personally run Teraflex shocks in the front and OME nitrochargers in the back and though the teraflex shocks are pretty soft, they ride awesome on-road, are made by fox, and are 60 bucks a shock so much cheaper then most shocks of that caliber. The reason for running miss matched shocks is that I really needed more uptravel and my teraflex shocks were limiting. The OME shocks need a lot less bump-stops and if you want more travel out of your suspension, then OME is the way to go.
