JKU teraflex 2.5 coil lift question

I just installed the 2.5" Teraflex coil lift with shock adapters today on my 2011 JKU. I really like the look of it even with the stock wheels and tires. I have them until I can get some better tires. My question is for anyone else who has this lift or any other for that matter does it always bounce in the rear end when you hit any bump at all? I had a TJ with a spacer lift and it wasn't this bad. I know I need to upgrade the shocks I am looking to get rancho 9000xl thats why I didn't get the lift with the shocks. I was just hoping that it wasn't real bad so I could wait a bit to get them. My 3 yr old son even asked why is the jeep bouncing LOL.

As far as the kit goes very easy to install and very high quality I have no regrets on this kit just looking to get the ride back to stock quality if I can.

The new TF coils are a little stiffer then the factory springs so it sounds like the factory shocks cannot control the bounce. Once you upgrade to a better shock you should be fine. The ride will still be a bit stiff but won't bounce.

For those folks not intending on installing heavy bumpers and winches I usually suggest the TF BB to retain factory ride.

Well i found out the problem it was the rear bump stops installed backwards causing the rear springs to not get used. Easy fix and a million times better.

Why do you HAVE to use wheels spacers when you use a BB or coil lift? (using oem wheels/tires)

If you are using oem tires you will not need spacers. But most people who lift tend to put a larger tire on, and if you keep the stock wheel you will need spacers.
