2" might be borderline for needing adj. arms. If you stepped up to 2.5" you could use some AEV drop brackets. As far as Synergy coils go I haven't heard many reviews but the rest of their hard parts are top notch. The leveling kit held up to some pretty rugged trails a winch and bumper though having a progressive rate coil such as the Synergy would provide a nicer overall ride. I would contact them and see what size shock they recomend and if they feel you may need adj arms or not.

Here is a picture of the instructions from the AEV drop brackets. If after you lift the front of your jeep and you are under 5-1/2" (as pictured) I would not suggest different arms or drop brackets. If you are between 5-1/2 and 6-1/2" I would say go with the brackets (minimal loss of clearance... But you have your other jeep to take care of that)! I don't see you going any higher than that with your lift plans.

Thanks a lot for the info guys! I'm going to give synergy a call and go from there. Right now I'm thinking 1" synergy front springs, rubicon take off shocks and 33s on 15" wheels. Possibly I would go 2.5" lift and 35s but then it becomes endless as far as $. This would lead to regear, axle upgrades, lower control arms, ect.. ect.. I would be going right down the road of building another crawler. The yj handles that just fine.
