Rubi Shocks

I want to do a small cheaper side mod in the summer. My uncle is giving me his Rubi Tires for cheap because he upgraded after 400 miles and I want to add a less expensive lift. I drive a 2DR JK Sport I heard the 4DR Rubi shocks can add a bit of a lift to it. Is this true and what other parts should come with it to make sure everything is correct.

If I do the lift myself will it void my warranty?

It's not the shocks that will give you lift, its the springs. You'll want to look for springs that have a higher number on the tag, such as 19 up front 59 in the back. Also just because the springs come from a Rubicon doesn't mean they'll be better, there's a chance they have the same number as the ones you already have.
You'll want to look at the tag on the springs you currently have on your Jeep, the last 2 numbers are the important ones, you'll want springs with a higher number if you're looking for a lift.
Upgrading to Rubicon shocks on a Sport will improve your ride on and off road, so if you can get them it is an upgrade.

What other parts should come with the springs to keep everyting proper and not put any unnecessary strain on any parts
