Do I need these ?

I went from 14/55 springs to 18/59 on my 12 JK and got around 2" all around, I also put on Rubi shocks. Im adding a winch, which is like 90lbs. I want to add the TF leveling pucks 1'' front and rear to make up for the drop. When I talked to teraflex about it they told me Id need the shock extensions since the spring change lifted it a little. Anyone run into issues doing it this way either connected or disco'd? I have 33''s if that makes a difference. Do I need them or have to worry about the brake lines or whatever else. I would be at roughly 2-2.5'' of lift when done.

If you got that much lift I would say yes you need shock extensions or longer shocks, brakeline drop brackets, and prob a good idea to add longer swaybar links to level your swaybar. You may also need a rear trackbar relocation bracket if the rear diff is off center.
