Recs for simple 2" spring lift, without shocks or bumps

Looking to lift less than 2" and use original shocks, bump stops. Most kits I see have the shocks and other add-ons. Can someone recommend a simple 1.5" to 2" set of springs? Will be going to 16 inch DC-1's with diameter of 33. Occasional off-road, but no hard-core. :P

Here you go:

Daystar - Driven by Design

Simple spacers. Easiest way to go. Less than 2". If you're keeping mainly to the road, these should be just fine.

Thanks, JK. How do you like your BDS Spring lift? Did you change out your shocks as well?

I like it just fine! The ride is smooth, and it gave me enough lift to fit 33's comfortably. Plus, it comes with a lifetime warranty on parts, no questions asked, and it's made in the USA.

I replaced both springs and shocks. It also came with bumpstops, a trackbar relocation bracket and I fabbed up brake line extenders.

Of course, every now and then I want to go bigger. When I put the winch and bumper on, I'll pop in spacers in the front to bring it back up, and then some. Might throw some Daystar .75" spacers in the back too.

From what I've been able to determine you can get to 3" before you need to really start replacing a lot of suspension bits.
