Going From 2" BB To 2.5" Spring Lift

Will I need any New Parts that I don't have already Installed if I go from a 2" BB to a 2.5" Spring Lift?

I already have JKS Adjustable Rear Track-Bar, Bump Stop Extensions, Shocks (came with the 2" BB).

Will I need to Add anything else to "do it Right"?

The Shocks won't get Over Extended, or an Extra .5" won't even matter?

~Now Going To Do A 3" Lift~

Of the Parts Listed that I already have in the First Post, what else do I need?

I'll be Keeping the 2"BB On the Jeep and Adding the 1" H&R Springs.

Should I get a Front JKS Track Bar now?

I don't want to ask a stupid question, but why not just use 3" springs and no BB?... you are probably gonna need some spacers to lower the t-case. I think 3" is usually when the vibes start to happen. good luck and post some pics once its all done!

I already got the 2" BB On the Jeep and got a good Deal on New H&R's.

I already got a 3/4" Skid Drop.

I can't Find a 3" Rear Spring. Most, if not all, are 2.5" for the Rear. 3" for the Front are Easy to Find.

AEV makes some really nice 3" springs from what I've read. Right up there with OME.

AEV is Uber Money.

For anything they Make.

I'm sure it's well worth it though. Just ALOT more than I'm willing to Spend.
