Pro Comp 2" BB

Does anybody have an opinion on the following lift from Pro Comp:

(2) Front Polyurethane Coil Spring Spacers
(2) Rear Polyurethane Coil Spring Spacers
(2) Front Pro Comp ES1000 Shocks (2" longer than stock)
(2) Rear Pro Comp ES1000 Shocks (2" longer than stock)
(4) Black Shock Boots
(2) Sets Bump Stop Extenders (front and rear)
(1) Transfer Case Drop Kit
(1) Set Sway Bar Quick Disconnects
(1) Steering Stabilizer
(1) Fat Bob's Garage Sticker -- This almost sells it by itself!

I heard that ProComp springs are stiff and wear out fast. If I were you, I would go with the Rubicon Express BB.

If you want the best ride, buy 4 Spacers, 4 BS extensions and 4 OME shocks.

Why donīt you wait some weeks/months, safe some money and buy a real spring lift?

ProComp springs are fine - it's the ES shocks that suck. I've had my PC 2"springs for a year with no sagging, but I did replace the ES3000s with RE Monos before I needed a kidney transplant.

If I was to start over I think I'd go with this one in the level 2 with the ZJ/LJ springs:

Oh sorry. I meant "shocks" and wrote "springs".
That shows me again that English isnīt my first language.

ProComp's springs are actually very good quality, its their ES1000 and ES3000 shocks you don't want. They are the stiffest riding shocks for a Jeep you could possibly find, I'd definitely go with something else. My ProComp shocks lasted maybe 4-6 weeks on my TJ before I trashed 'em.

Good riding shocks, for example, include the Skyjacker Hydro, Old Man Emu, ProComp MX-6, Rancho R9000x, and the Rubicon Express Monotube.

Thanks guys, I knew I could count on you. I think I might end up going with Rubicon Express 3.5" standard lift with monotube shocks. I was just hesitant because I saw installation of a slip yoke eliminator and CV driveshaft was recommended. That basicly doubled the price of the lift. So I could go with the RE 2" bb with the monotubes. I've got some time to think about it and save up some. I don't want to go to a 4" lift because I"m still not sure it I'll be going with 32 or 33" tires. ARGH....... too many choices!

With the 3.5" RE and a 1" BL/MML a TC drop will be enough. You donīt need a SYE.

With my 4.5" of lift and 2" BL/1" MML i still have the stock driveshaft. No TC drop was necessary.

Thanks, Nico. What's involved with the transfer case drop?

The MML makes the motor mounts in the front 1" higher and the TC drop makes the TC mount in the rear 1" lower. Both makes the rear rear drivelie angle better.

The 3.5" RE suspension comes with a 1" TC drop kit:
Rubicon Express, Inc.
