new guy, some lift questions

i got a 03 tj, has some wheel spacers and 32"s on it right now, i got a set of 2" spring spacers and a set of rubi springs, am i going to have issues with the drive shaft angles? i have a friend with a 3.5" bds lift on and no transfer case drop kit and he has no issues, im hoping to net around 3" with this combo. also seeing as i should be able to 3" of lift from this i should be able to go 3" bigger on tire size correct?

Every Jeep is different. Some have experienced vibrations with only a 2" suspension lift while some do not. The only way is to try it and see what happens. Worst case is you can do a TC drop and see if that cures it. Eventually you will probably want to install an SYE kit to get your ground clearance back.

I had a 2.25" budget boost spacers, and 32's when I first bought my Jeep. I had a slight vibration when accelerating on the hiway. I also rubbed the fenders when I bought swaybar disconnects. I then installed a JKS 1.25" body lift and a 1" motor mount lift at the same time. It solved both the vibration and rubbing problems.
You will also gain no lift with the Rubi springs. If anything, maybe a fraction due to different spring rate #'s or your stock springs are extremely worn and saggy.
I have compared the factory tags on my old stock springs ('04 6cyl. factory hardtop), with a friends stock Rubi springs he removed. Guess what? The tags had the same number on them.

X2.

Only thing tht might do it are LJ springs since he has a Tj but still not much difference.

Op. I suggest you get a nice quality set of springs and shocks that are for 3 inches of lift. No spacer crap. And get the rest of the piece you need so you can piece together a quality lift.
