Yes, I have the springs, the shocks and ordered the LCA’s for the 2” lift to correct the castor angle.

i finally gave up on the "spring game" since i have now seen Rubi takeoffs that are exactly what i have on my 4 door sahara U. I have 57/58 and 89/90. At least 5 rubi take offs for sale are the same so i see no difference unless you really go to like a 62/63 ish type. So i just added a spacer. The reason is i added a steel bumper, complete toe hooks to pull it behind my RV and a Warn 10K. All added about 150 ish pounds and dropped the front 3/4". So i went through all of the above debate, read every thread. dont plan to do much but rock crawling and use the warn to pull the zero turn out of the lake when the DW gets "tto close I think".....did it all my self as a first timer, took me all day to add the spacers since i'm learning and went really slow....bottom line is what your expectations are and if you are going to big ass tires on, rock crawl etc.....if yes do a real lift. if not dont waste your time just do spacers.....

The big winners here are us with the 2 doors. If we are fortunate enough to grab takeoffs from JLU with steel bumpers, tow package, hardtop ect. Then we can expect 2+ inches of height from the Springs. The shocks will give us extra travel for flex. Add in 1/2 inch or 3/4 inch spacers for bumpers & winches & we have real contenders on the trail for a lot less. I’m completely happy with this budget boost.
