Question....

08 2d JK.
Last year i put on a inch spacer lift and 4 black diamond shocks for a 2 inch lift.

Everything was fine until i hit the dirt roads in the mountains.
the wash board roads we down right painful.

On the street its ok, wonders a bit but i can deal with it.

This year i starting doing more, new bumper, winch, 5 new tires and wheels.

Saved up $400 to go for a coil lift while doing all that.

Now my question is...

Should i spend the money to fix my ride issues.
i understand my geometry is is off and that's a major part of the ride issue.

And i am looking for opinions here, would i be better served correcting the geometry first and if so what is the best option for $400.

I was going to save up and pick up the AEV 2.5 kit, that seems like it would go along way to helping me out.
Better coil springs and shocks?
Also looking at the OME 2 kit.
