What fits?(___ to TJ)

I've seen some posts where guys have put other model Springs on and got some lift (small lift but a lift). I have access from the company I work for to get new Springs cheap once a year. If I can infact get Springs from an XJ or grand Cherokee or____ and put them on without compromising the integrity of the jeep I'm in! Current set up is stock w 31's. I think I want to go 2-3 inches ideally. If this has been covered I can't find it and I apologize. Help me out! I got the green light from the CFO (Wifey) but I want to do it cheap so I can spend $ on other mods.

Very cool, I'll do some research on the ride quality. I don't expect a Cadillac Deville but don't want to shoot myself in the foot

new springs really arent that much, you can get bds coils for $100 per set.

IMO, the savings arent worth it to get junk yard springs

If I can get a new set (moog) for free the savings may justify it? Then new shocks (14 yr old ones on now) should improve ride and give me the small amount of extra lift I'd like. Am I off here?

Shocks are the main contributor to ride quality, not springs.

I agree that shocks will improve the ride but I was thinking of changing them while I'm in there doing the springs. Seems like if I'm taking stuff apart why not get both done. A little extra height + better handling from Springs and better ride quality from the shocks.
