Here is the link to the Rough Country spacer install.

It's pretty easy to follow. Is this the type you were looking for?

I used this a lot when I did mine, even though I didn't have a teraflex system.

Take your time with it, and have a good time.

I have daystar 1.75 front leveling spacers arriving today. Are there factory spacers in there already? I saw reference to a rubber piece in there stock...does it stay when you add spacers?

Those are spring isolators- most spacers install under those- Mark W.

The stock spring isolators remain in place with the spacers. In have the RC 1.75" kit on mine. Simple to do. First lift I ever installed.

That is what I did - read the instructions several times to get it all clear in my head. Very important especially for a first timer.

Just did the install of mine. Pretty easy but the springs need some working and prying a bit to get back seated.

I went with the Rough Country 1.75" spacer kit. I went with this size mainly because I liked how Priell's Jeep looked. I don't know which brand is considered best but this product looked like high quality. Installation was easy, took about 2 hours front/ 2 hours back.
