Lift Coils: IronMan, Lovells, EFS - are they any good?

I'm shopping for +2" coil springs for my WJ. I know BDS and OME (Old Man Emu) have good reviews, but the kit runs $500 here (yeah, Europe...)

In comparison, I can get IronMan, Lovells or EFS (they all happen to be Australian brands) kits for $280-$300. Anyone running a WJ with any of these springs? Would love to hear your opinions and experiences.

Take a look at the other online shop, which is also Europe, but the prices are much more reasonable than others. guys have worldwide shipping. For your coil springs check the link shop.elartcom.eu/springs-and-components

Anyone running Ironman, EFS, or Lovells coils on WJ? Any input would be greatly appreciated, as I have a limited time offer/discount for these brands products...
Would be great to take advantage of a better price, just not sure which one of the brands is the best choice...

Just ordered all four Bilstein 5100s and a full set of new spring isolators, $650 quickly left the pocket... ouch..
Coil spring question left... What are your guys opinions about UpCountry coils + BB spacers compared to proper extended coils? I' mean - would I gain any better street ride quality/comfort with extended springs apart from better articulation? As I said, the rare occasional "offroad" I do is just some gravel or forest roads, no uneven/rocky terrain or anything (it's mainly plains here..). I wouldn't want to spend another $400 if I don't get a noticeable benefit... What do you guys think?

Oh, by the way, would it be too much to ask - anyone who has +2" extended coil lift on WJ - could you measure from wheel hub center to fender lip (front and back) - I'm curious to compare with my UC coils + BB spacers that I currently have installed. That would let me see if my original UpCountry coils are sagged and if I would gain some height with "proper" extended coil lift.
Measured mine - Rear: 21 inch, Front: 20 inch (not sure how sagged are they..)
Greatly appreciated!
