Help me make a decision...
Im trying to decide between going with new beilstien shocks all around and a 2 inch spacer lift. Or a 2.25 inch suspension lift. The suspension lift im looking at is from rocky road outfitters, is a 2.25 lift and is about 300 bucks. Is this any good, and im assuming I would still need new springs correct?
Educate me in this, im more interested in a suspension lift but I like the spacer cause I need new shocks, but id also like to get new tires....

as far as I know all of the 2" lifts are spacer lifts. No you will not need new springs. They mount on your stock springs. I do suggest getting Bilsteins though. They're worth it.

But just an FYI there are many other 2" lifts that are cheaper than $300. Like daystar for example.

My first choice was the rough country 2 inch lift. 150$ out the door. If I go with a spacer lift and the bielsteins I dont need springs?

Nope. All you need is the spacer lift and Bilsteins. You don't need the
Bilsteins, but... They are certainly worth it.

I would imagine a lifted WK with stock original dampers (aka shocks) would be an awefully wobbly POS..... grab the Bilsteins too mate :)

Well yea I'm gonna get the bielstiens with the lift, my shocks are tired at almost 82,000 miles.

RC FTW. Best deal price wise and all steel (no poly). I installed mine at about 70,000 mile along with new shocks all the way around. The shocks were a huge improvement over stock ride.:thumbsup:

I have the RRO 2.25 lift with Bilsteins all around. I bought my 05 brand new and at the time RRO was the only BB around. If I were to switch it out today, I would go for the OME or maybe the SL, depending on my budget at the time. I am not sure if I would go with the RRO again from stock but I can say the Bilsteins are amazing and the reason I don't see a change anytime soon.

EDIT: save your money and don't buy the RRO shocks if you buy their lift, save your money for Bilsteins.
