2" suspension lift

Hello People, I am new to this site and a fairly new JEEP ( 1999) Wrangler owner. I have a couple of questions. I want to put a 2" suspension lift on, I already have a 2" body lift. Any recommendations include part# please ( pro comp, skyjacker, rancho, etc) and what are some problems to look for when installing. Also I have a severe rattling noise, I can feel through the peddles when on chatter bumped roads and two tracks. I had it on the hoist and cannot find anything loose, THANKS!

for lift I suggest
http://rustysoffroad.com/mm5/merchan...ode=sus_tj_kit
but many people will suggest OME shocks and lift from DPG off road i would guess

second, are you sure you checked everything, the driveshaft doesnt turn at all, the tires are alinged, the tires are balanced

wait i just re read it you have chatter over dirt roads, what did you expect the ride to be like a cadillac?? (J/K), but seriously is it really severe, or just like shaking

Are the shocks ok? Bushings and mounts? But if you can feel it through your feet, it might be a body mount or tranny mount. I'd get under it and reinspect the whole underside again.

It hasnt gotten worse. I didn't notice it when I test drove it because i stayed on the black top, we had over a foot of snow at the time...all info is very helpful, i was thinking bushing too, any type of mounts, i will be going over now thanks!

Welcome aboard. Noticing your screen name I gotta ask. Do you have any affiliation to the Tread Lightly Organization?

again i HIGHLY recommend rustys over JCwhitney, they have way better customer service, it will be a little bit cheaper, it will probabaly come quicker, and it is not a BB, but maybe the pro comp shocks and coils rides better, but i doubt it
