I have the teraflex performance leveling kit(coil springs) with blistein shocks an it rides great. But most people will get the aev or teraflex spacer leveling kits which could be paired with numerous shocks. Rancho an blistein are very popular around here

I'm going to install the Teraflex 1155200 (2"/1") kit on mine. I posted a thread about it. Run a search for it.

I have the same kit, just spacers.. Running 285's and 9"wide wheels. I also bought a set of Ruby take off shocks with a few hunderd miles for IIRC $60 bucks.

Perfect for my DD.

do you need to replace the stock shocks when installing the Teraflex leveling kit? And why do you have to install the rear 1" spacer?

I have the TeraFlex leveling boost kit on my JKU and the stock shocks. It is just 2 one inch pucks for each of the front springs and 1 one inch puck for each of the rear springs. The kit also came with longer sway bar links for the front.

Here are pics...

I also went with the TeraFlex spacer kit. No change at all in the driveability and she sits nice and level now. With the new bumper and winch she was really leaning. I didn't install the rear pucks because it leveled out just right with just the fronts. Without the extra weight in the front I'm pretty sure you'll need the rears also.
