Question thinking safe lift 2" or 3.5"

So I have been looking at a more safe way of lifting my yj. I have 3 inch shackles on stock/saggy springs... I have brand new 31/10.50 on it and don't want to change them... would I want to go to a 2" leaf spring lift or 3.5" leaf spring lift kit??? I love right where it sits now.. would like it as close as possible.. Thanks guys!!

oh and P.S. only $2.00 difference in price...

3" springs with your axle set to the correct angle, 1" motor mount lift, and you should be good to go without a SYE.

Unless you have a spring over conversion an add a leaf will actually lower the Jeep. I went with a 4" lift that came with a transfer case drop bracket. Had the kit over a year and so far so vibes from the driveline.

Do you plan on on keeping or tossing the lift shackles? With new springs and those shackles you will more than likely have issues.
