2 inch spring lift or BB spacer lift.

The front passenger side of my TJ is 3/4 lower than the driver's side. After reading online, I'm thinking that its sagging due to engine torque. I am planning on putting on a 2 inch lift. My original plan was to put a 2 inch BB lift on, and just swap the front springs. Would this even out my front end or should i just go for a 2inch lift with new springs / shocks?

Go with the new springs and shocks, do it right the first time.

before you do anything, get the tires turned all the way to stop on either side, and check the bottom of the coil springs. There should be a one-bolt 'clip' holding the bottom of the spring in place. I popped one of those out on trail somewhere, probably climbing rocks...and the spring rotated enough so that the rubicon 'tilted' to one side when it was sitting on level ground. Drove us nuts...adjusting the jks disconnects to compensate until someone noticed it...yanked one off a spare axle he had and lifted the side until the spring was loose, spun it around, put the bolt/clip in and problem solved.

I'll check the springs later today, to see if one has shifted. I'm only at 65k miles. Shouldn't the stock springs still have plenty of life?
