BB needs to be updated

hey guys i have an 01 that has a 1.25 jks body lift on it and i have a BB running 32x11.50's. The stock springs are starting to sag a little i and i would like to replace the springs and shocks but dont really need more lift, i was looking at the OME 2in kit but i read that most people get about 3in lift out of that kit. I was wondering if there is a way to just replace my springs and shocks to get a little stiffer spring or if i just need to go with a full kit like maybe the rancho 2in kit.

you can replace your stock coils with coils off a rubicon and get a little over an inch of lift there, take the bb out and you will loose less than an inch of height, and if your stock coils are sagging you might not loose any height at all. can also run stock rubicon shocks for a stock like ride.

I am running the JKS 1.25" BL, 1" MML and OME suspension and couldnt be happier. It is well worth in my eyes.

yeah i was thinking about going ahead with the ome lift becuase if i ever did want to upgrade the stock D35 i could go up to 33x12.50's and it would look good. I was just doing some searching to see if there was a cheaper option out there like just switching out coils.

I will keep an eye out for rubi coils and go from there.

I'm going to be getting rusty's 2 inch kit here soon and it is a good price. If you already have shocks that are long enough, then you could just get the springs from them too. Here's the website.

I did some looking and found a set of Rubi springs for $100, they only have 2,000 miles on them so should have alot of life left on them. I think it is time to upgrade shocks too so if i did these springs what would be a good shock to match with them.

Looking at the rusty's 2in kit it only comes with springs and shocks, is there not a need for changing the track bar location or transfer case drop or any of the stuff you see that comes with even mild lifts?
