New suspenson recomendation

Looking to put a new suspension (2" lift) on the 110 five door soft top. Wondering what set ups everyone is happy with nowadays (I have not bought shocks springs and bushings for a Defender in 10 to 12 years.

What worked 10-12 years ago (OME and OME or bilstein shocks) is still my choice if I had to do a lift at all.

I'd consider some of the progressive ones if I was doing another one at the moment. It would be nice to have a softer start and stiffer finish to the suspension.

I'd probably also not use the Polybush set I used and go with the ones from Superpro even though they don't do a 'stiff' bushing they do cast poly into sleeved bushings which does make some things easier.
