97 lift kit

i have a 97 jeep wrangler and i have a 2' spring spacer lift and i want to take that out and put either a Skyjacker 4" Economy Lift Kit with Hydro Shocks
or a Black Diamond 3" Suspension Lift Kit with AT Shocks
the skyjacker with shipping is cheaper then the other one.
included in both is : include extended control arms, shocks, coil springs, transfer case lowering kit, bump stop spacers, rear track bar bracket, pitman arm and front and rear sway bar links
what one should i get im a 16 year old jeeper and my dad wants to buy the lift so i dont want to get a real pricey one!

The Black Diamond kit should be good enough... just don't install the pitman arm unless you install a drop bracket for the track bar as well... but I wouldn't do either of that for only 3" of lift.

I'm running 33" tires and I don't have matching doors cause I rolled 9/1/10. And it docent sit well a speed bump gets the tire to hit the sway bar.
Thanks for the info
