Is using spring spacers a good idea? New Shocks?

I would like to lift my TJ a couple of inches with the least amount of $$ as possible. If I were to buy just a set of 2" spring spacers, would that work decent? Or, do I need to get a kit that has a matched set of shocks? Is the ride with spacers still comfortable on the road?

The rubicon express kit is only $200.... but even $200 is a lot for me right now....!

Also, how much does a spring compresser cost? I have been told to go with a 3 point compressor instead of a 2 point compressor... do I even need a compressor?

The spacer gives you lift with a stock ride, and I would definately get shocks too.
You might look for someone who took theirs off to go with a full blown lift kit and get it cheaper.

Well... the Rubicon Express comes with 4 spacers and 4 shocks. It's only $200. It's the best deal I have seen so far. The other small lifts I was looking at are the Procomp 2" which is $320 and comes with springs and shocks and the trailmaster which is $250 and has spacers and shocks.
