Oem suspension question

I have a 2009 sahara and ive been itching to get a lift for quite some time. But i have a few questions. First, does anyone have a roundabout number of how many miles the stock suspension on a 2009 sahara can put out? Im at about 45000 miles on the shocks and coils sincd the day i got it. And second, im bent on getting the Rancho 9000 shocks. If i were to just swap shocks for now and buy coils later but for a lift, will the shocks adjust jut fine from stock height to lifted height? I dont plan on going higher than a 2.5 lift anyway, even IF that. Thanks

I would expect anywhere from 45k to 150k miles from your factory shocks, depending on where and how you use it. I would also expect 100k to 300k miles from the factory springs.

Check this for lifting options.
