Smile Starting a minor left with new shocks?

Just got a used 2007 JKU.Looking into a minor lift and shocks. Have read the lift stickey.Need some input if this is the way to go. Eibach Leveling/Lift Kit #16193.1003 and Bilstein 5100 shocks.
She has 169,000 + miles and is in very good shape.One leaking shock and a LEAKING STEERING STABILIZER. So work to do! I figure the springs have saged and need service also. So,let me know. Thanks.

I think we may have a mileage winner lol
169K ? Holy cow

Don't know too much about that brand leveling kit.

Not to much involved, just spacers, possibly longer sway links and Bumpstop extensions.
Have you looked at Teraflex/AEV ?

The steering stabilizer is a cheap fix, no need to get anything special

I think, I would go with the TF level kit and the Bilstein HD shocks. Just my 02.

^^this

As for the steering stabalizer, a stock replacement would be fine actually. Don't know enough about any of the others to offer much opinion.
