Lowering my Jeep.. Help

Not too sure on how to go about this so I thought I would ask you all..

I have a 2011 3.6 Laredo right now with 255/50/20's on. I am thinking about lowering the jeep with the aggressive look from Black Ops Auto Works but I am not sure on how to go about this. Do I need sway bars? Do I need to level my car before getting the drop? Will my tires rub?

Thanks in advance,
The Noob

all you'll need are the springs and possibly bump stops. while the sways are not needed in the drop, they will help it corner flatter with reduced side to side roll. i dont believe your tires will rub in that size

If u go with the aggressive springs...youll need the adjustable control arms as well for alignment. But i doubt those tires would work. Youll have to go to a 275 40 or 285 40

How about just leveling my jeep so it's not such a huge gap in the back?
