Need suspension advice

I am about to install an ARB/XD9000 and it is time to upgrade the suspension. This is my daily driver and occasional offroad vehicle, so on-road comfort is a major factor. I am looking to put together a 2" lift with fox shocks, but I am not sure which springs to go with (RTE, OME, etc.).

Also, I noticed RTE sells rear shock mounts, but not sure about the front (eye mounts on the fox shocks, right?). I've seen a lot of recent posts about shock mounts, but what is the best way to mount the fronts?

Thanks in advance for any advice.

-Dan

Mine is my only truck and I've had no complaints from the OME springs I put on after the bumper and winch install. I've got eye to eye on the rear using the RTE mounts. I bought a pair of D2 shock towers and will talk to steve at RTE about a set of lower eyelet mounts for the front when I finaly have some spare cash.

RYM 2" RR4's I believe will do you solid in the front and RR3's in the back. Great spring and no sag. I woul dlook into the rockware rear shock mounts. you could run a 14" shock then and they come with the lower mounts also for eye to eye setups.
