Hey guys. I'm new to the site (obviously) and new to Jeeps. I have a few questions I was not able to answer by searching.

Before I start out I will say I have a 2000 Wrangler Sport 4.0L / 5 spd
Lift from what I can see is only 2" coil spacers. It currently has aftermarket 15" wheels (not sure on width) and 32x11.5 Goodyear Wrangler M/T tires.

1. How do I know if it has a body lift?

2. The shocks sold seperatly are sold in singles but do not say front or rear, are they all 4 the same?

3. I have read that spacers are not that great and the shocks i have (they say super lift on them) I feel are not that great, the ride sucks. So in your opinions would the OME 2.5" lift with only 2.5" lift coils and new shocks be a good investment over what I already have?

That should do it for now!
Thanks in advance.

to check for a body lift just simply look at the gap between the tub and frame at the mounting paints. as for shocks, yes all 4 are the same. as for the ome lift i hear very good things

How big of a gap? There is about a 1 " piece of rubber in there right now. But if I remember correctly my truck had that stock.. So it's probably just the stock isolators being that short, right?
