I got the shock upgrade. They sure are stiff, and the ride is definitely stiffer than before. I also got the boots. Bought 4, but you should only buy two (you cant see the rear shocks so theres no need). I did not buy the stabilizer or arm and I am doing fine without. If you are doing this yourself even with moderate experience and a buddy, plan on devoting 7-10 hours unless you have an impact gun.

If your springs are really flat you definitely want to get a t-case drop. Get it at the same time (I got a tuff country) I dont think RC makes them. If you dont you will get bad vibs going down the road. There are some that are only $25, so if you want a cheap alternative to TC google it.

I heard of getting the t-case drop for the 4" lift but not the 2.5" I will consider it..

I think most people would say Tcase drop for 2.5" and SYE for 4". It really depends on the jeep.

No, it depends on the Jeep. You would think they are all the same but I've had friends run a 4" lift with no sye or tcase drop and they had no problems. Other's I've seen lifted 2.5" and the driveline vibrates like hell around 35-40. You may want to look in to shims for the rear axle. A set of 2.5degree shims and your pinion angle should be golden.
