Re: Which YJ 2.5\" Suspension Lift?
All of the major brands are gonna be OK at 2.5 inches. I would go with OME if you have plenty of funding. Procomp is probably the stiffest, but they hold up well. Make sure to correct the steering with a drop pitman arm if the angle is steep, and make sure the brake lines are long enough. The shocks are very important and I would go with a set of propperly sized R9000 so that you can stiffen em up on the highway and soften up off road. Get sway bar disconects, some decent tires, then go out and play. Most of those spring sets need to be flexed for a while before they come into there own. You arent gonna flex like the more exotic suspension set ups but you will have clearance and the capabilities to have a lot fun and start planning for the next upgrades. Hell I still have the second largest springs from my 4" Procomps installed in my SOA rear pack, so who knows? todays 2 1/2' lift may be part of tomorrows 7" SOA.
My choices for SUA lifts though in order would be OME, Skyjacker, at the top then, Procomp, Superlift and Rancho. I dont know too much about Big Dick Suspensions, but many people rave about them in conversations(never seen a set on the trail) Just my opinion through my experiences.
If at 1st you dont succeed, your replacement will try and try again
