    Look into Adjustable Control Arms, Look into a 1.75" Poly Spacer set for the front and just remove the factory Isolater when you install That will raise the front about an additional 1", either extended Sway Bar Links or disconnects, and EXTENDED BRAKE LINES,

    Cheapest - In all honesty, you could re-drill your stock brackets about 1.5" lower and get away with it.

    Cheap - YJ brake lines are a few inches longer and will work on a TJ

    Not cheap - Extended braided lines for 2-4" of lift

    Definitely get adjustable control arms.
    4" of lift is the magical height for most TJ's. You may experience driveline vibrations at that height. You'll need a transfercase drop (cheapest option), or an sye and cv drive shaft (not cheap, but best option). A 1" motor mount lift will also help with your driveline vibes.

    Rubicon Express makes respectable control arms. Lowers will do you just fine.

    If I remember correctly OME has a longer spring for the front driver side, make sure you put it there or your Jeep will have a lean.

    hum, is this a new offering from OME?? OMe only use to offer 2.5" lifts due to the fact that aussy sets that as the max they allow.

    OME has a longer front and rear spring they go in the driver front and the pass rear to off set engine torque and acceleration fatigue

    I have the 2.5 with ome shocks in the hd spring set up and love it rides smooth as can be and is high quality.

    IF yours is only a 2.5 lift then I got by w/o a drop pit arm or having to lower the tc or adjust the control arms
    I do have RE uppers and jks lowers now and i much prefer the jks

    by pass the the quick discos and go right for an anti rock and throw on some yj brake lines up front.
