Install of teraflex BB today!

Ok I pulled the trigger and got the teraflex 2.5 BB, I am going to start install in a few hours ( post soccer game) any helpful hints I should know about? I have read the instructions a few times and watched the YouTube vid from teraflex a few times. Seems a little harder then I first thought but seems doable !!

You may want to grab some spring compressors for the front.

Rear-
Just get the frame up as high as possible and support with jack stands. Raise axle with jack and remove tires. Disconnect shocks/sway bar links/brake lines where they snap into the body. For the rear you have the e-brake cables I believe. Lower axle and watch for overextending anything, you may need to jack the side opposite of the side your taking the spring out.
The coils should come right out. Install spacers and isolators. Put everything back together in reverse and done.

The front is a little harder because of the bumpstops in between the coils. The instructions are pretty much the same for the rear.

You can swap the swaybar links and do the shocks last if you choose,

I think Teraflex advises loosening all the CA and TB bolts. Give the jeep a good shake and torque to spec after all is done with jeep on the ground.
This maybe just for taller lifts ??

Ok.,,, what did I forget lol

Good luck

Ken

Also I currently have 17/58 springs and found some rubi 18/60 springs for sale ($50) would it be worth adding these? I don't really expect any more lift, I just was wondering if it would prevent some sag latter on?? My rig is a 2012 and the rubi springs state they came off a 2007 if the age makes a difference??

You have to know the numbers of the springs that are on your jeep.
What are the last 2 numbers, front and back?

Take your time and remember safety above everything. Always make sure your jeep is supported when your under it.

Here's a video link of the same lift in a walkthrough.

I just installed the coil lift. I didn't need a spring compressor for anything but the front passenger side. I was too cheap/lazy to buy/rent one. So, I used some ratchet straps to compress the springs and I advise against that. Just be not so cheap and lazy.

Make sure you give yourself a good amount of time and it helps to have a buddy and pb blaster as well as all the right tools on hand. The rear spacer took a little time for me, I think we used a combo of a bottle jack and blocks of wood to get it properly secure.

nice Ken.

Sorry !! Yea.... I don't think it's going to be worth it for you.
Too small of a increase.
