Would I benefit from 4" Coils

I purchased a 2" Old Man Emu kit a few years back.

I am wondering if they gave me more then 2" of lift...

I've already got 4" Poly Performance Coils and I wonder if they will actually give me more lift?

You guys be the boss:

I could be grossly mistaken here, but it seems to me that 4" coils will lift you higher than 2" coils.

As to whether or not it would be a benefit...you'll likely need new driveshafts, new shocks, brake line extensions, swaybar links (don't know what comes with the PP coil kit). Also (if you don't already have em) adjustable control arms, adjustable trackbars. I'm probably leaving something out, but hey...

And after all that – unless you buy new, bigger tires – your Jeep will sit higher, but have no more ground clearance than it did with the 2" lift.

I got stock Driveshafts. My Shocks are good for 4-6" of lift at the moment. They will extend to where my coils come out of the perch. Which is partly why I want to install higher coils.

I do have brake line extensions, and extended sway bar links. and f&r adj. trackbars.
