Coil Spring spacer or Suspension lift?

I've got an 01 Sahara that I want to lift slightly. I'm considering either the coil spring spacer kit or possibly a two inch suspension lift. I saw one post on here about a 2 in. sus. lift made by Rusty's that was in my budget. I will never go off road at all. Just sold a 89 that had 5.25 inches of lift (4 in RC sus. and a 1.25 body lift w/33's). Wasn't happy with the way it rode. I know this Jeep I have now is a TJ and it will ride differently lifted but I really want to try to maintain a good ride. I don't drive this Jeep much-a couple of times a week. Just wanted some advice on which route to go and some insight on how the Jeep will ride comparing one lift to the other.

When I got my jeep it had a spring lift kit on it I liked it the jeep still rode like stock and could fit bigger tires.Suspension lift is the way to go in my opinion thats what I went too and she rides real nice now.

It is all about the quality of the components. OME is well liked on the forum, they're a but expensive, but you really get what you pay for. I went with Rough Country the first time and it rode horrible, I have since switched out the shocks to OME and now it rides pretty darn good.

Teraflex budget boost - TJ Wrangler 1.5

Old Man Emu shocks - Old Man Emu N66 - Old Man Emu Front Nitrocharger Shock Absorber for 97-06 Jeep® Wrangler TJ & Unlimited with 0-2" Lift - Quadratec

If its staying on the road I would do something like that. You could still run a 32" maybe even 33" if you if correct the bumpstops.
