Coil spring spacers, or coil springs for 2" lift?

Hello,

I have a 2005 Grand Cherokee V6. Im adding some 275/45/22s. I need about 2" more clearance to be safe. Im trying to find the most comfortable 2" lift for on road use. Would you recommend the coil spacers or the actual springs? And would I need new shocks with this set up?

How hard is the coil spacer install, and is there ANY difference between all the brands?

You took the time to write that rather than point to a thread or answer the question?

Searched, couldnt find anyone with 22x9 and those tires make any questions or comments. Which is why I asked.
