Lift help needed.

I installed a new 2" lift rear 2.5 front sprint spacer and have a few questions.
With a 2-2.5 lift do I need new shocks?
With a 2-2.5 lift do I need new sway bar links?

They are on my list, but $$$ is an issue, I have $1500, but I hope to add some 35" rubber, Trail Grapplers or DuraTracs.

I've been wheeling about once a week for an hour or so at a time, mostly steep hills and trails, nothing too gnarly, not too many options around here. When I wheel I do not disconnect the sway bar, because I do not have the option (but they are on the list)

Thanks for the help.

Yes/no and yes

You can get extensions for your factory shocks. I would not run the stocks over 2" -that's just me. Get extensions or longer shocks.

The good news about the swaybar links. You really only need a new rear. The factory rear can relocate to the front.
Only about $50

Good luck
