That looks great! Any rub offroad? I'm leaning towards 33x12.5x16 BFG KM2 and want as low of a lift as possible without having to cut and of course with no rubbing on or off road. Do the stiffer springs + leveling kit working together provide enough lift for 35s??

Thanks, haven't taken her off road with this set up yet, I will report on rubbing and issues once I get back from rausch next weekend. but on the street no issues I removed the air dam and the back spacing is 4 or 4.5 on the wheels so no rubbing has occurred.

I have about 6 inches of clearance between the top of my tire to the bottom of the flare in the front and I had to trim my rails and pinch seams.

The PERFORMANCE leveling kit is a true lift. I chose this setup because I didn't want to net any more than 2.5" of lift and most of the 2.5" coil lifts get you up above 3". I wanted to run 33's and be able to flex and stuff them up into the fenders while disconnected. At this height I'm not worrying about track bars needing adjustment or extreme drive line angles. I'm running Bilstein 5100's with the TF coils and the ride is BETTER than stock and works great offroad. I'm running 285/75-16's and I'm at the perfect height for my use.

Well said.

Have you stuffed the tires with that set up slim? Have they rubbed the flares either front/rear?

BTW I listed the wrong tire size in my original post. I'm running 285/70-17's. I just got everything installed on Friday and took a great shakedown run on Sunday. I ran disconnected and had no rubbing issues whatsoever. This is the ride I went on. Some good pics are in the thread.

I'm checking out the performance leveling kit.... is this something that some one with a shade better than basic skills and tools can do, or should a pro do it?

A leveling kit is very easy to install with no experience and basic hand tools.

Please note that the PERFORMANCE leveling kit is 4 coils. There is no difference between installing that and any of the other basic coil lifts.

I am going to order the TF leveling kit for my 2007 JK X. I see in several posts that people say to use a Torque Wrench to reinstall everything. The problem is I don't see any Torque Values in the Teraflex instructions. Can anyone help me?

The other question I have is that on the Teraflex website for the Leveling Kit it states the following, "If you prefer to run the factory wheels, you may need wheel spacers for proper clearance". I had the stock steel rims with the 16" Goodyear Wranglers on them. I installed some new 18" tires/rims off of a 2013 Unlimited (Bridgestone Deuler AT). What does this mean exactly?? Do I need to install wheel spacers?? If so,what exactly do I need to buy?

The labor is the same. If you can do one, you can do the other. I also STRONGLY suggest (with strong disagreement from lots of members) that unless your leveling kit is a placeholder until you can afford your REAL lift...basically, if the leveling kit is "it" for you, do NOT get the spacer lift but get the coil leveling kit (the performance leveling kit.) The spacers will rot out, or get chewed out, and eventually, fail.

Here's another pic to contribute to the thread.

What is the specific TF coil leveling kit? I seem to get confused on the various vendors which is which. I want to replace my TF spacer leveling kit because it appears that my driver side spacers had become a bit uneven resulting in my spring appearing to bend.

It is called the Teraflex Performance Leveling kit. It is 4 coils and sway links.

to bring this thread back from the dead... I'm currently researching wheels/tires for mu JKU: landed on the Duratracs 33's 285/70/17. Still looking at wheels, but with my tf 1.5 PERF leveling kit, what is the backspacing numbers I should be looking at? I see wheels I like, but they only come in, say, 5" bs. Do I really need to stay at 4.5 in order to eliminate any rub? not sure I want to run wheel spacers so I want to get the wheels right the first time. Thanks

?? I am looking to use my stock rims 255 75 r17 and move to Duratrack 33's I was thinking I had to add wheel spacers 1.5" ?? but am now wondering if a lift kit would accomplish the same thing. I. e. avoiding rubbing on hard turns. This might be a better alternative to the spacers since I'm not even sure if Spacers are legal in Connecticut

With both the Teraflex leveling kit and performance leveling kit (JKU 2014), is a front alignment needed?

4 wheel parts, Jeep Masters and two other garages in Austin area are telling me its necessary to do a front end alignment. I was hoping to have a local garage perform the install but all the shops around here quote 3-4 hours of labor which appears to be a bit out of place based on how long I hear a few guys state it takes to do in their driveways. Basically around a total of $500.00 to $550.00 for the parts and labor. Is this out of line?

I did the install myself with some help from a friend. I had previously never even taken a tire off, so it CAN be done by someone with limited experience, but willing to go slow. Having said that, I did majorly screw up the first step and disconnected both rear lower control arms!!!! that really sucked and it took 3 hours to get the bolts back in. So I did need an alignment after that. If you can get one cheap enough I don't see why it would hurt. Bottom line is that I learned a ton about what is going on under my jeep and will not be afraid when I want to change out my chocks next

I installed the Tera flex pucks in 1:20 from start to finish, no front alignment needed and it took me just a couple minutes to straighten the steering wheel.

stock wheels don't have the back spacing needed to avoid the rubbing. Spacers are needed. A leveling kit will not help this.

as another person said, you can definitely do it yourself and it will help u learn about your jeep. I did mine in my driveway with a neighbor. I had never done anything like this before and it was pretty straight forward. I did an alignment bc I didn't want to take a chance in damaging brand new tires.

If that cost includes the Performanc leveling kit ( coils ) and the install that sounds about right. Just curious I called a local shop to see what they charged to install the lift and they said $320 which included an alignment.

Would it be overkill to get the teraflex forged trackbar and adjustable control arms with the performance (coil) leveling kit?

Also, it seems most of you here have sports, would the 1.5" springs be a zero sum gain on a '14 rubicon? I ask because it seems popular to run rubi shocks and springs on sports meaning they must sit higher... Right?

I just want to run 33" x 12.5 duratracs as this is my daily driver

I've had my sport parked beside numerous rubi's before my leveling lift and we were exactly the same height. I think the Rubi coils are a bit more robust is all. Most here that have 2 doors go with 4 door springs as it gives you a fair bit of lift as the 4 doors are a quarter ton heavier and have taller springs to compensate for the added weight.
