tow package spring question?

So my quest for a cheep decent lift has lead me to the tow package springs
front 521226319ac. I have the 14/15 right now.
rear 68004460aa. I have 56 in the back right now.

Now my question is I should get about 1-2 inches lift, but should I order the regular bilstein 5100 shocks front and rear for 0" inches of lift, or bilstein 5100 shocks for 2" - 3" inches of lift front and rear?

I was about to get to tereflex 2.5 inch kit, but feel im better off with mopar tow package springs for number of reasons. My jeep is a daily driver and mostly drive on the beach. Also im still on stock 17inch rims tires.

Those are close (though not identical) to the part numbers for the "HD coils." If they are in fact functionally identical to those coils, you should see a 1" to 2" lift from using them.

My instinct on the shocks is to go with the 0" of lift shocks--technically, you're still at a "stock" height.

Review this post (http://www.wranglerforum.com/f33/sus...ift-74282.html) where I asked a very similar question. Make sure you also follow Daggo66's links.

I have those coils with the Bilstein HD shocks for 0" lift. When I bought the shocks in '09 the 5100's weren't available for 0" lift. I really don't know which way I would have gone if they were. In any event I am very pleased with the HD's.

Does Bilstien make 5100s for 0" of lift? Q-tec only offers those for lifted JKs--it's the Bilstien HDs that are available for 0".

Actually I'm not sure if the bilstien 5100's is available in "0" inch lift. But the same question still applied if I were to get the stiffest factory spring. Ill prob get the bilstien HD set of four with zero inch lift makes sense its still really factory springs.
