Shocks for 2" budget boost?

Purchased a new 2" Teraflex bb a while back but not installed yet. Again this is unused but the guy I bought it from did say that eventually I'd want to replace my stock shocks. Then talking to a guy the other day that had one he said with the stock shocks it absolutely ruins the ride.

Now I do have the springs and shocks from my friends 04 unlimited I could use or would they cause the same issues? If so can someone advise me what is a decent (affordable) set of shocks to buy that work well with the spacers?

I'd rather so everything in one shot than the spacers then shocks.

The unlimited's springs would be a plus because they are much newer,but the shocks are the same length.Skyjacker hyrdos ride very good and are about the cheapest,good riding shocks you can get at $146 for all 4 shipped.Make sure to order them for a 2" lift.
Skyjacker Hydro 7000
Front Shocks: Part #16016 103
Rear Shocks: Part #16016 104

I like the ride of superlift softrides and they are even cheaper than the sj.

Jeepinmichguy-

you couldn't point me in the right direction for those shocks could you, I'm very inexperienced when it comes to this stuff and afraid of ordering the wrong thing?
