I put that on my 2013 JKU, and I did not even need to align it. The steering wheel will off center when you lift it up, since the axle shifts. Apparently the 2" was not enough for me to even notice the wheel moving. My steering wheel still appears centered, the Jeep doesn't pull in either direction, and my tires are wearing normally(after 12k miles on them). So, I just called it good and never even took it to an alignment shop.
If you do want an alignment, note that there are only 1 or two things you can actually adjust on a Wrangler without replacing suspension parts with adjustable ones anyhow, so a standard $120 wheel alignment is really only goign to be able to recenter you steering wheel, and there is a guide on here somewhere that tells you how to recenter your steering wheel yourself, in like 5 minutes.
I have a 2014 Unlimited Rubicon. Once I put this kit on, is there ANYTHING besides an alignment that needs done? I'm new to all this so I apologize
That Teraflex Leveling Kit includes everything you need and you shouldn't need to do anything else with it at all! Check out the install instructions to see what goes into in the install. Let me know if you have any other questions or if you'd like a quote!
I did the 2.5 spring kit 15K miles ago. No issue, no alignment, did not have to reposition steering wheel, handles better than stock (wider tires may account for that) and did not need anything else. Torquing is important as previously mentioned!
I installed a leveling complete on my jeep as well as helped a couple buddies install theirs it's a very straight forward job and can be completed at home with basic hand tools. I have done it with and without a spring compressor if you do decide to use a spring compressor autozone and advance have a loaner tool program where you pay for it and then they return your money when you bring it back. You may already be aware of that but jut thought I would throw that out there. We did adjust my buddies steering wheels after installing his but mine did not need it will just have to drive it and see how she feels. You may also need to adjust your headlights but both of those things are easily adjusted. Here is a pic of my 11 jku with leveling kit and 32s. I plan to upgrade to at least 33s when these tires wear out.
I installed a 2.5 TF spacer lift in my 2012 jk unlimited and had no alignment issues whatsoever. Took me a weekend to do by myself, but wasn't difficult. Put jack stands under the frame as high as you can get them. Drop one side of the axle at a time, and the springs come out without too much effort, just watch that you don't over stretch your brake lines when you do this. Re torque all bolts after 500 miles or so.
Did the leveling kit last week. LOVE the aggressive look. It's how the jeep should look. One note, I added an extra 1/2" spacer in the front. With my new bumper, winch and front skid plate the 2" in front wouldn't have been enough to correct factory rake. So it ended up being 2.5" front and 1" rear which was on the money. I had the installers align it just in case. I also have 1.5" spacers installed which widens the wheel base and I think that looks really good also and is a cheap and easy mod. Still running stock rubi 17" wheels and 32" tires for a while. I don't think they look to small at all but I still can't wait for larger tires!
I have had a performance leveling kit on my two door for about 8 months now. I also paired it with Rancho 9000s. I did not have to re center my steering wheel since it was off a fraction of an inch. I also did not have an alignment done as it was not needed. No pull, tires wearing great. What I have noticed and a few guys here had said is with the teraflex coils they did sag a bit even without heavy bumpers etc.
Having done everything, looking back I would have gone straight to a 2.5 coil lift.
I was convinced by posts on here that with a two door I would have driveline issues with a 2.5. Oh well.
