1.5 springs

I have 2 inch s/r kit from calmini . My springs are saging . I want to replace it with rancho 1.5 springs and get a litle lift out of it too. Do I need to replace pitman arm,install extended brake line and drive shaft spacers? it's a daily driver i'm on budget . Thank you for all the advice igotten from this site.

Calmini has 1.5" springs designed for the S/R. It moves the front axle forward 1", so the tires don't go into the body when the suspension compresses.

But yes, longer brake hoses (and shocks), and either a drop pitman or a hi-steer would be needed, along with d/s spacers and extended bumpstops, maybe even longer spring u-bolts.
