Default Apologies for another lift kit question.

We bought our 2006 Grand Cherokee CRD in May of last year.
It had an ARB bullbar, so I installed the winch, spotties and snorkel.
Due to RL we had no time to test her out before we went to Rawson, Victoria to play in the Mt Baw Baw area.

First I noted the caravan (ball weight 150k) dropped the back end by 50mm but it still looked level. The Jeep then had more bounce and a couple of times the new AT's on the new mags touched the rear guards on the 200k trip.
Nothing to stress about, new to Jeeps and learning.
We had more of that 4x4-ing in the high country, along with scraping regularly on the water divert mounds.

So now to lift........
Rocky Road suggest spacers and shocks, but I wonder if the coils need replacing. Ebay has sellers doing longer coils and shocks(Webco).

We don't do hard tracks intentionally, as the wifes a tad gun shy after rolling the Pajero in the high country around Jamieson last Easter. It's also her daily drive so a 2'' lift would be fine.
Is there anything else that needs changing after a lift in the running gear?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions
