Replace with stock or RC 2.5?

The stock suspension on my TJ feels to be pretty much worn out. 129k and it's pretty soft/squishy feeling. I can rock it back and forth with 2 fingers so I'm planning on replacing it. I was going to go OME but I'm just not going to be able to swing it. I'm looking for a better ride over the lift but a little of both wouldn't hurt.

What do you guys think? I've been searching on here for a week and can't really make up my mind.

if you can't afford OME, check out BDS. they're based in Michigan

Your shocks are shot. If all you are interested in is fixing the "problem" replace the shocks. If the "problem" is justification for a lift the sky is the limit in options.

Thanks, the 2" kit looks like it will do what I want. The few reviews I can find seem to be good.

Really I just want to fix the problem but I run 31's so I figure I might as well give it a little boost while I'm at it.

BDS has a really good reputation, if you can swing that then definitly go for it. If your going for ride quality I wouldn't go rough country haha
