Suspension Questions...
Alright guys, my 05 4.7 WK needs suspension work, everythings getting tired and I'm not happy with the ride. I'm ordering a set of bielstien's for it, but while I'm at it I wanna do a budget 2 inch lift. I know its gonna put more strain on the shocks but it is what it is.
So my question is what's my best bet for an inexpensive two inch lift with the setup I'm getting? Without breaking the bank.

Re: Suspension Questions...
I like the Rough Country. All steel and mounts on top of the front strut and rear coil. Doesn't change the ride at all. I picked up mine for $150.

Also, it shouldn't strain the shocks at all. The front shock assembly remains exactly the same (spacers are on top) Same amount of travel etc. The rear I would get something slightly longer then stock since they will be stretched out a bit. I believe Bilstein has one as well as the Old Man Emu rear shocks. Although I ran the stock shocks for quite a while. I recently went with a set of coil-over load levelers in the rear that are about 3" longer extended. Really the only issue with the stock length would be a lack of travel.

Re: Suspension Questions...
Any idea how I could find rears that are a little longer? And do you have alink to the rough country lift?

I ran rear Bilsteins on mine with the RK 3.5 X-Factor lift kit for a little less than 2 years. Both the shocks and the lift kit were GREAT. The kit is slightly more expensive than other 2" kits but uses replacement strut forks up front.
