Rancho 2" Lift Kit W/ JKS 2" Rear Coil Springs
 
After doing research on the lift set up I want and reading all the reviews, I'm pretty set on getting the 2" Rancho Lift Kit with the RS9000XL Shocks. The only issue I had with pulling the trigger on this was the rear bump stops. I saw that JKS has 2" rear coil springs and was curious if anyone had run this option (I did search the forum and google to see if this question had been asked previously to no avail.) I was thinking of buying the Rancho kit during Shocktober to see if they would be discounting it. Otherwise I found it on 4WheelParts for $419. The total kit cost (including shipping and tax) I'm looking at is $475 for Rancho 2" kit, $185 for the JKS Rear Coil Springs; bringing the total to $660.

I will probably get the JKS dicos and the AEV Geo Correction Front Control Arm Brackets as well with this all-in purchase (raising the price another $200 or so)

Just looking for input, opinions, thoughts, or donations :whistling:

I dont think it would work right. Two different manufacturers, rates, slightly different lengths, who knows. I would either do jks all the way around or just stick with the rancho kit. I know the rear spacer is a turn off to most but i run a spacer kit and have no complaints. The jk discos are nice too i have them. Just a PITA to get off sometimes.

Tab22092, I appreciate the input. I'll probably look into the rubicon express 2.5" lift or the Teraflex.
Clever Scott lol.

There are no problems mixing suspension components. Just think with the Rancho you have Rancho 2in in the front and stock in the back...

I have the same sport 2in and am in the same boat you are with the rear. I will most likely go with synergy 2in coils for the rear.

Rubicon Express makes a great lift thats the way i was originally gonna go. The monotubes are just re labeled bilstein 5100's which are a nice but slightly harsh shock. Although the tuning is different on the rubicon ones, according to a member on here who did a review they are very nice. I personally have rancho 7000mts which are a great shock. And as for mix matching brands and such due as you please. I wouldnt personally do it but hey its your rig.

Contact or go to the Synergys/PP site.They have all sizes of coils for a JK/JKU.
