Rough Country 2.5 Lift Kits
 
I have a 95 yj with no power steering if i buy this lift should i upgrade the shocks to the 9000?
and a Single Steering Stabilizer?
and a shock boot
and a steering arm??

cause my budget lift is now getting expensive?

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.

depends on the springs?
I will make sure to get the tcase kit also then.. thanks...

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.
