From 2\"springs, To 4\"springs ?

This guy has 4" lift springs on his YJ, then he did a spring over, and now sits too tall [img]images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img]
So he will trade his 4" springs for my 2", this is a "springs only" trade!
What else am I going to need to make this work??? [img]images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img].
More info: I already have the t-case lowering kit on my YJ.

Also I figure this will be a good time to upgrade my stock shackles. What are a good brand and where is a good place to buy, greasable shackles that are maybe 1" longer (might as well get a lil more lift for my money [img]images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img])

Maybe a drop pitman arm, also the shocks will need to be changed out. The brake lines, e-brake cable will need to be looked at. But biggest of all is the rear drive line you may or may not need to replace it. (probably will need to)

Be carefull with the lift shackles in the front, they alter your caster angle, which leads to bad steering.
