I would get some fresh shocks, the shock relocation bracket only allows for more wheel drop, however will limit your flex by not allowing the tire to travel up into the wheel well as much. May even act as a bump stop, and that is no good. The RC 2.2 shocks are pretty decent from what Ive read, they will be stiffer then the stock (way to squishy to me) but have a more crisp feeling for better cornering and solid stance. With a lift you want a little stiffer shock just because the center of gravity is higher. With the track bar relocation bracket I would at the very least run a new bead around the axle bracket, front at rear. Three JKs in my club have broken theirs and atleast one that I know of only has a 2.5" lift on.
