Default My 93 XJ build

Hey guys my name is Anthony I'm 20 yrs old and I love on Long Island. As of now I have 2" rustys lift springs in the front, brand new "heavy duty" leaf springs (apparently they lifted the back 1.75) n I also have rough country shackles but they're only set to the 1" lift. Basically my XJ has a 2" in the front and 2.75" in the back as is. I'm ordering skyjacker shocks that are good for 0-6" of lift they say and of corse I'm gonna eventually get her up that high but I have a question about my leaf springs. (If my math is correct) if I put the shackles to the 2" hole the back will be at 3.75", so I also wanna do a add a leaf. Do I get a 2" lift one or do I need something bigger? Bc I'm starting to wonder if the add a leafs are 2" lift for a stock leaf splurging and not the heavy duty leafs.... Any thought and opinions please comment so I don't order the wrong add a leaf thank you. Ill be able to post pictures of my XJ later and how she sits now.

I've also been looking at control arms, sway bar links, track bars, etc. what do you guys think is the best for a reasonable price. I know people say BDS is the best you can get but I don't have the money to get everything from them

im just confused on what add a leafs i should get. im shooting for 6" of lift but im confused bc my leafs are arched for 2" of lift and i have 2" lift shackles so as is i am capable of 4" in the back. so my question is do i get 2" lift add a leafs or will that not do anything and ill need 4" add a leafs? basically my mind set right now is if the leafs are arched for 2" of lift putting a 2" add a leaf wont do anything
