If you're not going to use it off road, keep it stock. Anything you do will diminish the ride quality to some extent.

If you must have it lifted, stand by. Someone with more knowledge of the coil spring suspensions than I will chime in.

he spacer lift is the worst idea if your only concern is ride quality. The steeper the angle on the control arms, the rougher the ride will be.

Correct me if I am wrong, but wouldn't this apply to all lifts that don't change the control arm length (not just spacer lifts)?

For what it's worth, I lifted my TJ 3" (springs, not spacers) and have more than enough room for my 32" BF Goodrich ATs. And yes, the ride is noticeably stiffer than stock, but not objectionable.
