Time for suspension

Drove home 2 nites ago and well you can just call me bobble head doll! The suspension was brutal. Hit a bump and well it would bounce out for oh 3 miles or so then right when it stopped I hit another bump! this went on for 50 miles! I need new suspension so I am looking at something that is not to pricey I am broke. Maybe a 2 inch lift so I can run 32's or 33's. Thanks my fellow jeep guru's

Skyjacker 2" Budget Boost with Hydro Shocks... probably one of the better 2" lift/shock combos out there.

Thanks this was kind of a lead in to another problem that i have been hearing. The suspension questions have been beaten to death and the search works great! So here is the problem, I have a whining sound coming from the front end. It sounds like the front diff. So I may be rebuilding a front diff. It is a high pitch whine that stays the same sound when driving at any speed but when not moving it is not there. Help

Try removing the front driveshaft first. It might just be a u-joint going bad. If the noise still continues without the driveshaft, then I might check the diff. Just open it up and check the fluid and inspect the gears.

I have worked on my share of cars and trucks. I don't think it is a u joint - I hope but I have never heard this sound from a u-joint. This jeep is going to turn into a money pit coming up between the suspension, front bumper, winch, tires, rims, now looking at the front and rear diff re-gearing.
