LMAO, good one :)

OP, pays to mention the vehicle you want to get lifted, year, model etc.

I deserved that comment, its a 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee, want to put some Mud tyres on it but wnt to also look at lifting a little, can you put spacers on top of the springs!

Theres a multitude of different ways to lift 4x4's
All depends on several key factors as to which way you do it

Total height increase
Intended tyre size increase
Intended PRIMARY usage & secondary usage
Vehicle brand & exact model
Budget

All 5 above factors will have a significant effect on the "best practice" option.

Where are you parking it when not in use = shed roof height
Total lift = possible cert needed = mods to drive shaft/brake lines /diff breather systems/ steering,
speedo adjustment = ruc accuracy
etc

Not hard but definantly needs a bit of realistic planning to get it right

Most small lifts on older 4x4's are simply swapping out the body to chassis blocks for taller blocks.
If you can do that would be easy=ish and wouldn't effect your suspention if only going 1" or 2" & wouldn't need a cert.
I suspect yours could be a monoque chassis so that option may not work.
Taller springs will limit total downwards travel & proberly need a cert plus wheel alignment.
