Post would bigger coils lift my jeep

I have a dilemma. A small shop in houston, TX ordered what they thought was a pro comp lift and installed it on my 2011 jk after showing up to the shop I noticed my jeep was indeed lifted in a rush I grabbed the keys and headed home. Once I made it to my house an hour and a half away I noticed the shop had installed a coil spring spacer lift which lifted my jeep 3in in the front and 2in in the back with a dual steering stabilizer all by pro comp. Unhappy I notified the company and they swear up and down that's what I asked for so to keep me "happy" they threw in pro comp shocks. I am wondering to achieve the desired height can I just add coil springs from a 4 in lift to my jeep jk and be just fine? Or do I have to take everything off and start all over for the correct height and flex I was originally looking for?

If you want more lift it gets expensive. Adj control arms and driveline mods along with front and rear track bars will be needed to do it right.

X2 what's wrong with what you got? I would run spacers before PC coils any day unless running weight. Did he charge for a coil and install spacers ?

I would remove a stabilizer though.

Welcome to the Forum!

Before any more mistakes are made, I suggest you run a couple of searches on two subjects:
1. 2.5" lift kits and their benefits
2. Pro Comp products particularly coil reviews

4" is a tall lift on a Jeep that will lead to other modifications. PC is a budget lift and not the best choice for a tall lift. What you save initial, you spend in excess in the long run.

The stock coils with spacers, albeit some tall ones, are much better choice than the alternative you are considering. It may have been a "Bait and Switch" but in this case, they did you a favor.

I spent right at $1100. The only thing now that I really want is a little more height.

It's been almost 3 months, did you resolve the issue with the shop?

If not, how much more lift do you want? You shouldn't go much higher with spacers and the majority of coils are going to provided too much lift in combination with the spacers you have.

$1100 for a spacer lift and unneeded dual stabilizer?
