Coil Boosters?

Guys I have a ? This past weekend I attended the event JeepBeach2013 (loads of fun) but I need some advice, while I was there I saw this beautiful TJ with 5.5" Rubicon express long arm lift like I have and he added coil boosters, from what I could tell they were 3/4" I couldn't find the owner of the jeep to discuss what exactly he did. I want a little more height and I'm wondering if I decided to get them what brand and how tall would someone recommend and what I should try to avoid. Can ya help a girl out?
I have a 2000 TJ Sport with a 5.5" Rubicon express long arm lift and 35's.
Thanks.

Those are typically used to compensate for heavy gear like bumpers, winches, etc. You shouldn't use them just to gain height.

Well all heavy gear will come in time, I'm upgrading my tie rod, sway bar, and few other things in the next few months. I don't plan to use it just for height its just a bonus that it would add some. I'm just looking for advice on what brand, and how tall I should get them if I do ever consider it or need it.

Well this isn't what you want to hear but the correct way to compensate for added weight is higher rated springs.

But if you really want them, teraflex is popular

I know, but I'm on a budget and trying to avoid spending the amount it would cost to get higher rated springs when I could get a budget booster as a temporary get-by if I do ever require it. But I'm just curious about it, not interested in buying yet. Thank you for the advice. I'm still new to the jeeping experience, just trying to get some intel.

Quadratec has inexpensive spacers. The ones i purchased were rubicon express. Use the Google shopping feature and you will receive free shipping.
