No, really, the jeep will hop when you hit a bump, will not flex. Imagine having rebar in place of your springs.

Every JY mod I've heard of you've covered. Good work, your original post should be made into a sticky.

Fixed. Youd have better luck converting your jeep into chiti chiti bang bang than getting XjStryker or someone to make your thread a sticky.

And no, just shocks, track bar preferably, sway bar links. BUT it will be a stiff ride, very stiff ride.
I have bronco coils on my xj that combined with the 2.5" spacer and my shocks still bolted on the front track bar should be relocated or replaced i have death woble on occasion on the freeway but its not really all that bad swaybar links do need to be replaced or just fab some up like i did
the worst of it is the ride it is really really stiff but all in all i lifted my xj almost five inches for about $80 plus the cost of the track bar

Does it matter which F-150 coil springs you use? Advance has 3 different ones.

How is this possible? 96 and earlier have centered e-brake and the newer style has an off-set e-brake (out of the console).
