Teraflex Lift/Level

Seeing that the TF Perf Level kit has 2'' front and 1'' rear springs....what are these springs? They say 1.5'' on a 4 door and 2.5'' on a 2 door. Are these the same 1.5'' springs as the Perf Level kit? I'm confused

TeraFlex JK 4-Door Coil Springs - Front - 1.5" (TF-1853052)

Tera Flex JK Wrangler 4-DR 1.5 inchor 2-DR 2.5 inch Coil Springs - Rear Pair (1854052)

Debating between those TF springs and the RK 1.5'' springs....

I have had both go with the RK coils. Both ride nice but I have done 2 TF performance coil kits and both have sagged on 4 doors. The Rock Krawlers have sagged about 1/2" in back and 0 in front. the TF sagged down to stock height.

Does RK have a leveling kit or do they go straight to the 2.5?

Sorry for the slight thread highjack

So the RK coils are just the coils buy them selves not one of their kits? I looked at their website and their cheapest 1.5 lift was listed at $999 and that just sounds wrong!

No you can get 1.5" triple rate coils ala carte . Daniel_M a vendor on this site gave me an incredible deal on a set of them. you will need longer sway bar links front and rear and longer shocks or shock extensions as well as rear brake line bracket extension if you are going to flex it off road and bump stops.

About how much did all that come out to?? If you don't mind sharing. This is all very interesting to me.

well shocks were $191 after rebate rs7000's, coils are a secret as Daniel_M asked me not to tell but I can tell you it is worth it to get thru him nobody was close. I used my stock rear sway links up front and put jks adjustables on the rear and I think around $70 on amazon but got them cheaper nib on the forum want ads. for me Offroadelements was best price on shocks.

I'm going to run stock rubi shocks on the street, the RK 1.5 springs, and rear sway bar links in the front. I hope that's good enough for pavement pounding.

Mine is a dd also. Will the shocks be long enough? The only other things I would recommend AT SOME POINT are Ranco Drop Brackets and the TF Rear Track Bar Bracket.
