Lift kit issues

Hello all. Im trying to figure out a lift for my 09 JK. I recently contacted Quadratec and Morris 4x4 regarding the same question. The question was, If I purchase the Teraflex leveling kit(TF-1355200), do I need spacers? Quadratec said yes but that was all; no more details. Morris said no and said that with stock tires and 17" wheels, there was no reason to. From talking to other owners they say the someone is just trying to make a sale. Can I get a real answer? Cheers!

I cant think of any reason why you would need spacers

Whether or not you need wheel spacers is not dependent on you lift. If you're running stock wheels and tires there is no reason you would have clearance issues with that lift. Spacers are required when running larger, wider tires on factory wheels. They effectively reduce backspacing to push the tires away from the Jeep.

Let me know if you have any other questions at all.

Teraflex says you need spacers but you just have to pay attention when you put the new swaybar links in to make sure you turn the the correct way so the threaded end doesn't face the tire or cut the excess off. I vaguely remember a thread about this a while back when I was helping a buddy put on a TF BB with longer swaybar links. If I recall they were rears supplied by TF and we moved the longer rears to the front. No spacers...no problems
