I am all for saving money and respect the fact that everyone has different budgets. I just think this approach only ends up costing more money in the end.

Before my ride was spongy, now its just right, not too stiff and not too soft. Same shocks btw

You can sell a BB for close to the same price you paid, cause they dont wear out.
Also I paid $50 for mine, brand new

It was spongy before and after putting spacers on top of the same spongy coil springs, it's just right. So spacers change the coil rate? Mine rides like a brick being dropped on a piece of plywood so maybe if I throw in some spacers it'll ride better.

Dont need the sarcasim, Im just tellin how it is, it might have compressed my springs alittle more than usual.

I just recently got a 2" Suspension lift and only needed springs, shocks, and a steering stabilizer. I went with the ProComp 2" Suspension lift. So far, it's been great. I didn't need spacer or to drop the transfer case. Planning on getting an alignment very soon. The kit I bought was used (craigslist), so I got it really cheap. It sits really well though. I've heard a lot of people complain about how stiff the ride is after switching to Procomp, but I haven't noticed it being any stiffer than it was before. Hope this helps some

Perfect example of why I think it is silly to just stick spacers on to lift a jeep.

There are solid used springs and shocks that can be had.

Why anyone would want to do twice as much work because you only have money for spacers now only to just do it all over again when you do.

Heck, I think for 300 bucks you can get BDS springs and shocks. That's pretty cheap.
