new coil springs or spacers?

I only need about 2 or 3 inches of lift because my Jeep is a daily driver and will be untill I graduate college in two years. I was wondering if the ride is any better if I go ahead and get new coil springs or will spacers pretty much do the same thing? Also, what kit would you recommend?

new springs is definitely the way to go....provided you're willing to spend the money to do it that includes new shocks, bumpstop extensions, sway bar links, track bar relocation bracket, brake lines, etc.

Check local lift laws too... Some States don't allow spacer/spring combinations

Daily drive = spacer lift = cheap and easy.
I have a 2" spacer lift without problems.
