Sorry Phil was working last night so could not get back to you, no l don't think anyone makes 1.5 springs or shock only the spacers.
At moment I'm waiting for jimnybits to get the 2" springs back in stock, so yes if you got the money go for the 2" spring kit.
The main photo is a little bit newer as it has the A bar fitted and was taken in my works car park, but yes it is the same spec.
Here so more photos you might like to look at.

Hi Phil, as I think you know, iv just added the spring spacers. They are worth the money but as I had such a hard job fitting them if I could go back in time I would of choosen new springs and shocks.
I too were waiting for jimny bits to get the 2" kit back in but couldnt wait! :silly:
At the end of the day, if you add new springs and shocks you are upgrading where as the spacers, your just adding parts :s .

Either way you choose, im sure you will be happy with the results!!!

It's well worth waiting and getting proper lift springs and shocks, this will give extra travel.
I decided on +3 springs then kinda went mad and fitted 1.5" spacers as well but these only give me extra height and not improve performance. Likewise with my body lift but i'm not short of arch clerance as they are trimmed aswell, but this gives me the option to fit 33" tyres if I decide to be mad again. :-)

Adam: why did you struggle to fit the spacers?
Nicho: If you need help fitting a lift just shout! I'm only down the road.
