I'm thinking of doing the same but why would someone want to go with the leveling kit over a true TF lift with shocks and springs? is it just for the money? hope its ok I'm throwing this question in. I went to a local shop and they quoted me on the TF leveling kit as well as pro comp rather than a full lift with shocks.

I originally wanted to go with the OME 2" lift kit, but realized that once I got into the 2"+ lift range, there were a lot more suspension parts that I would need to buy (not required, but, encouraged by all the vendors).

I didn't feel comfortable spending that much money at the time, but, I still wanted to get a lift that was good with a good ride quality in mind. Plus anything more than a 2"+ lift, my wife wouldn't be able to get into the Jeep.

I ended up going with the performance lift (springs) and the OME shocks and I'm very pleased with my decision. My buddy with a JKU has the leveling kit (pucks) on stock shocks drove/rode in my Jeep and noticed the better handling and ride quality immediately.

Teraflex Leveling Kit (pucks), 2" front and 1" rear and longer sway bar links. Toyo Open country MT 255/85R16, 33". Kept stock springs and shocks.
Very happy with handling and ride.

Can you provide some info on the performance lift? Is it Teraflex? I'm trying to decide if I want to do a leveling kit. Is this an alternative to the puck kits? TIA.

Yes the performance kit is from teraflex and is springs instead of pucks.i have this on my jeep and have no regrets.The springs are beefier and with more coils than what the stock springs are.id imagine in the future when I add bumpers/winch these springs will be better against the sagging issue caused to the increased weight in the front and rear.

Here' my 2013 Black with the teraflex 1.5inch spacers---$130 kit.....and Rock Ridge 17" wheels with GY Durotrac 285/70/17----$2800 for 5 wheels, tires. and tpms.
This has as good, if not better stock ride when tire psi is 32 , about the same noise -minor as the stock BFG 32s.....gas milage has dropped about 1 mi/gal to 18.5 for 50/50 highway/backroads. Makes the rubi look much better--IMO

You don't have to, but it's nice to use it to reconfigure your speedo, lower/disable your TPMS and the other features from the procal.

I am going to be installing the TF leveling kit with spacers(not springs) and sway bar links on Sunday. Any tips from some of you guys who have done this already? Any special tools needed? Any problem points that I may run into? It's going on an 07 Sahara JKU.

Looks great, I hope to do this to my JKU once i receive it. $2800 for wheels/tires is gonna be tough to scrounge up for awhile though

Did your front sag at all with the heavier front bumper? The reason I am going coil upgrade, rather than spacer, is because everyone says the front will sag with a non-stock bumper (or comparible in weight bumper) and I just bought a 100lb Rampage bumper.

I had minimal sag with the bumper. That may be because my springs are heavier due to the max tow package.

I gained 2" in the front with the leveling kit.

Hmm... I also had the tow package installed on my Jeep, and I am fairly certain I have the stiffer springs, do you know your spring numbers by chance?

Sorry for all the questions, but a leveling kit will save me a lot of time and money if I *almost* get the same affect that a 2.5" coil will get me (appearance wise)...

They say that Jeep kept the front end lower to increase MPG. Did anyone notice any changes in there mpg with just the leveling kit installed?
