Teraflex 1.5" performance level kit question

Hi everyone I am looking for a small lift kit and I found the teraflex 1.5 level/ lift ( part # 1351500) and I was wondering if this kit comes with everything that is needed to lift the vechicle and maintain alignment specs? Also for this kit do you need to purchase new shocks or will oem ones work? If anyone has experience with this kit I'd appreciate the help thanks

The kit is complete the way it is. You aren't lifting it high enough to throw off anything but it is still a good idea to get an alignment after. Also your oem shocks will be fine for the kit but new shocks could make the ride even better.

Even a stock vehicle can be out of alignment.

When you install a lift kit (like the performance leveling kit) you should probably get an alignment. But do the install first and then see how it drives--I didn't need an alignment after installing my 2.5" kit.

You don't need new shocks with a leveling kit, though you can certainly add them if you like.

Okay thanks I don't know to much about lift kits and I didn't want to open a can of worms by doing this. I was just wondering if with the lift/level it could still be aligned with in spec

I have blistein 5100, great shock imo. But rancho makes a quality shock, fox is also a good brand as well

The can of worms was opened when you got the jeep.

So, what does one look for in Shocks? the technical stuff, not just the brand?
some of them are adjustable? what are the things that someone who doesn't know anything about shocks needs to know before they buy? is there a write up somewhere?
