Rubicon Express 2" Budget Boost and Ranco Coil Springs

Just started researching, but in the next few months I'm picking up a RE 2" BB kit and a set of BFG 32" AT tires.

While doing the budget boost, I'm also thinking about replacing my coil springs, and want to know, can I just replace them with another set like the Rancho 3" coil springs? Is it simply a remove the old ones and put the new ones (compressed)?

This is what I'm thinking of picking up. I'm experiencing a slight sag, so I want something to resolve that issue before overspending.

If you do the 2" Budget Boost and the 3" springs, you'll be at 5" of lift, which would require a few more upgraded in order to work properly together.

You would need ADJ. Control arms, SYE, Rear CV DS, Shocks and Extend Brakelines.

If anything, maybe you should just replace the springs, with either 2" or 3" springs for Terflex, OME, Full Traction or Rancho. No need for the Budget Boost then.
