I just got off the phone with a buddy of mine who works at a Jeep dealership, he told me that the Rubicon only has the appearance of a lift due to the higher tires and stiffer springs. There is no body lift or suspension lift. It was funny that I saw this thread right after asking him the same question.
Everyone should believe in something...I believe, I'll have another beer.
Not all Rubi's have the stiffest springs. Many call them Rubi Springs because stock, the Rubi can come with them, but some Mountain editions and Saharas came with the stiffer springs too. I seen a Rubi with 14 front and 55 backs the other day and that is one of the weaker combos and the same as my Sport had originally.
The stiffer coils springs do lift the Jeep though just because they don't compress as much while the weaker springs do compress especially if you add a mod.
I had a weak set 14 front 54 rear, and buy replacing them with the stiffest 19 front, and 60 rear I got 1 1/2 lift out of it from my original coils. So it is a coil lift anyway you look at it.

what does the "extended sway-bar end-links" do? will if affect the electro discos?
That is AEV's 2" spacer kit, yes.
Your front and rear sway bars are attached to your frame and teathered to your axles by sway bar links. When you lift the frame of your Jeep higher off your axles, the stock links become too short. Extended links will not affect your Rubicon's e-disco.
