Leveling Kit

Has anyone purchased a leveling kit for the front of a 2012 jeep. Please let me know what kind, where and opinions on using them. Thanks

Of course. TeraFlex's seems to be the most popular, usually purchased through a forum vendor here on WF.

You mean spacers just for the front ?

Leveling kits typically lift all 4 corners but put more up front.

All manufacturers make them. There are all pretty much the same quality/cost.

I ordered my TeraFlex leveling kit from Quadratech for about $130. Lifted the front 2" and the rear 1"

Thanks for the quick responses. I don't want to add bigger tires, just lift the front a bit so it doesn't look like it's sagging

That's referred to as the rake.

Least expensive way to go is just adding 1" or so spacers in the front only.

Just putting a puck up front and nothing to the rear is not really worth it. The leveling kit at the very least will not only get rid of the rake and give you the stance you want but it will also proportionally lift your jeep all around. Alot of jeeper run leveling kits first before moving to a full suspension lift. It's a great starting lift and requires nothing in addition.

I would recommend installing the kit too because it's very simple and will give you more hands on knowledge of your jeep.

I see that quadratec has a 3/4 comfort ride kit front and back. Will this be enough?

I ran a 3/4 kit by Daystar and my 33x12.5R15 tires would rub off road. Here is a pic of the height of that kit with 33s. I'm running a 2.5" lift now but if I had to do it again I would have definitely started with the leveling kit first instead.

Side height


Front height


Rear height

Looks great but it probably be too high w/ stock rims and tires. Just want to level the front at this time. Don't know if I should use 3/4 or 1 in spacers

You have factory 29's?

That's why I think just the front might work for you.

If you've got 225/75/16 tires they already look to small under the jeep. Any lift front and or rear will make them look more like roller skates. I still recommend the leveling kit and then or at the same time new tires and wheels. If you don't plan getting new tires/wheels now then hold off on any lift.

Jeeps look fine with a leveling kit and 255/75/17 if you want to stay within the stock sizes.

I will be selling 1" teraflex spacers for front only after Thursday. I already started a thread in the For Sale section. Only had them on for a little over a month and decided to go with full 3" Coils. Depending on your current front coils, I am also getting rid of 19 front coil springs

I have the Teraflex performance(spring)leveling kit with 285/70/17 Duratracs and 1.5"Spidertraxx spacers on stock wheels.



I like the setup and dont plan on lifting it anymore.The tires and leveling kit made quite a difference from stock.The wife really noticed how much harder it was for her to get in it.: )



here it is in stock form.
