Default Leveling kit or lift springs?

Not sure if this is a dumb question but, if I were to get lift springs like the Skyjacker D25's, would I have to change anything else. They say 2"-2 1/2" lift. Also, what would be better, leveling kit or lift springs? Do both require an alignment?

My 06 with Readylift 2.5" Levling kit and 35" Trail Grapplers


Either way you'll need an alignment. I just went with the coil spacers for simplicity and the fixed lift.

Those trail grapplers look great. Do you have any rubbing issues with the 35's? I was thinking about going with 33", either the trail grapplers or mickey thompson mtz.

I actually don't have any rubbing issues at all with my 35s.
