Help with a lift.

Ok, considering I have a 2.25 bb on my tj. I noticed the front has started to sag a little (165k miles). I know the front is already an inch lower and was wondering if I got 2.5 inch lift springs what I'd have to do considering I have the stock shocks?Also would I need a tc drop?
Thanks for the help in advance

I put 4" longer coil springs on my front and didn't change nothing else, and have absolutely no problem with it after 50k miles now, springs in the front, 2.75 spacers in the back, and an alignment and I'm running 33's, still running stock shocks, and no body lift

Nice thanks. So what if I leave the spacers in the back, take the front ones off and get 4 inch springs. Or it doesn't really matter?

So the tc drop is unnecessary?

To be honest I don't know why I didn't have to have the TC drop, see em everywhere and was told I had to have em, but you said you got a 2.5 body lift? I am not experienced with body lifts

Well heck yeah, the 4 inch springs are the easiest, cheapest way to go, I found might eon quadratec.com at around $50 apiece about 4 years ago, made by skyjacker, they are red, just don't forget alignment, and I like the way mine is a hair higher in the front
