Shocks and springs

Okay guys im tired od the 2 1/2 inch donuts i have holding my jeep up and im tired of bottoming out 24/7 with my stock shocks heres my proposal i would really like you guys to critique it as much as possible

Teraflex springs for a 3" lift and rancho adjustable shocks haha doesnt sound like a big deal but i would really like to get rid of my stock springs and shocks..

Also... What do you guys do for your suspension, what do you see work best for you offroad and onroad?

Opinions on the adjustable shocks coilover shocks and all others would also be really helpful

Right now i really like the idea of adjustables because i could change from an offroad setup to a on road you know?

I can't help on the spring change, because My Rubi springs are more than enough with the RC 2.5" spacers, but--

I can reccommend the RS9000XL (adj) springs, they are reallly a boon to comfy/controllable riding-

You can set them for hiwy with/without load or very tight control for rocks/ruts/gravel off-road and towing !!

There are 9 seperate "points" on the adjustments, but you can't feel the diff. between EACH setting, so you'll develop probably FOUR set points (I do)-

Coilover shocks are very expensive and you have to modify your shock mounting points-more for competition and racing !!

Good luck

JIMBO

Okay ill definitely stick with the rancho shocks then, now i just need some opinions on coil springs because the rsncho only has a 4 inch lift and i need a either a 2 and a half or a 3 inch set of coil springs to make up for the donut i wanna take out
