Anyone use this leveling kit?

hey all, I was looking around on amazon and found this leveling kit and was wondering if anyone had any experience or input on this? Im mainly looking to just get rid of the factory rake for a more leveled stance. I could install these in my sleep, but have read here and there that theres a anit roll over module or something of that matter where id need a special tool to realign the steering wheel???? thanks for any input

Amazon.com: JEEP WRANGLER JK 2" LEVELING KIT. Front Only. 2007-2012: Automotive

Seems kinda...spartan, if you ask me. And 2" in front and nothing in the rear might leave your Jeep with a distinct...well, about-to-take-a-dump look.

Most of the leveling kits I've seen are 2" in front and 1" (or 1.5", in the case of the Full Traction) in rear.

The TeraFlex leveling kit comes with longer sway bar links to compensate for the higher ride height. It costs $130, but if you decide to go with a higher lift later, you can often sell it to someone else for around $100.

A link to the TF leveling kit: Teraflex 1155200 - Teraflex Leveling Kit for 07-12 Jeep® Wrangler & Wrangler Unlimited JK - Quadratec

As for the special tool to align the steering wheel, it's called an AEV Procal. It will also let you adjust the sensitivity of your TPMS sensors (or turn em off altogether, like I did) and recalibrate your speedometer if you change tire sizes, among other handy functions.

The TF will look fine with stock tires...and you'll be all set to run 33" tires when you get ready to. Here's a couple photos of 4fit's rig with the leveling kit, before and after he bought his 33's:





Now, you may be thinking to yourself, kb, how in hell did you find those photos so fast? Well, the answer is that 4fit likes to post pics of his rig. They're everywhere, like fleas. The guy's a show-off, plain and simple.

But enough about 4fit.

You can most likely do without the Procal. At least for a little while. Installing the leveling kit shouldn't throw your steering wheel off. But once you get bigger tires, you might be forced to buy one to adjust your speedometer. Some shops will do it for you, but most of em won't (and no dealer I've heard of will do it if your tires are larger than stock.)

That's something you can worry about later, IMO.

hell that doesnt look bad at all! thanks! Im not worried about speedometer, my old truck had larger tires on it and I went out and found a digital speed sign and just kept the difference in back of my head when driving. I dont think I had to do an alignment on my tj when I did the budget boost back in the day, but if I do need an alignment, Im sure I can just have a shop do the typical alignment
