Just installed TF leveling kit!

My TF leveling kit came in and being the impatient one that I am, I had to install it immediately. Had some reservations about doing it on my own as it was my first suspension mod that I have ever done. Took me about 6 hours because I had to go get grease for the new swaybar links and plus I forgot to put one of the spacers in the front and had to take everything apart again...oops. TF instructions were so so, but by reading tips on the forums I managed to get it done. My steering wheel was a little off after but that was an easy adjustment.

I think it turned out pretty good.

Looks great. It's good that you tackled the install yourself cause now you know a little more about your jeep.

Looks great man, these JK's are much easier to swap out springs than the TJ's. I hated using spring compressors. Your jeep looks great and congrats on the install.

Thanks! Yeah I was pretty nervous about doing it it myself. I must have read every write up there is lol. Definitely learned a lot and when the time comes for a bigger one ill be ready.

Thought I would try spring compressors at first but decided not to and good thing because those things practically fell out on there own with the tight things disconnected.

Didn't the new sway bars come greased already?

No, in fact, you have to install the zerk fittings yourself.

Yeah you have to install the zerk fittings and grease them. Of course the TF instructions are pretty vague about it.

I had 17/59 coils that came with my tow package so I just kept them as I wasn't sure what springs came with the performance leveling kit.

I debated tire sizes to death. It's ultimately my dd so I wanted to stay at a size that woulnt sacrifice too much gas mileage while still be able to play off-road a bit.
