Teraflex leveling kit installed

Finally I got this done. I switched out 15/59 springs that created a really nasty rake, even after I had a 3/4" spacer installed. I installed 18/59 springs and Rubi shocks coupled with the leveling kit. I thought it came out great and I love the look. I'll add tires when I wear out the ones I've got. I'm thinking Pro Comp ATs, General Grabber ATs, or BFG ATs.

Next on tap is a Rugged Ridge stubby tube that will be here next week.

Stock the day after I brought it home.




3/4" spacer




And the grown up version. Sorry for the crappy pics, I'll get some good ones up eventually.

OP, on the second picture your JK looks like it has a slight rake.

If you are talking about the one with the Jeep on the side of the road, that's with a 3/4" spacer. Are you referring to that one or the last set of pics?

Is your rake gone with this setup? How do you like it? Did the bumper weigh down the front or did the rubi springs help?

Nice look. I am thinking about the $130 leveling kit with rubi shocks and springs. Looking for a cheap solution.

Rubi springs are probably no different than what you have now.

Just because they are Rubi Springs, doesn't mean they are the "Good" ones. You NEED to Look at the Tags that are on them and See what the Last 2 Numbers are.

I'm getting ready to pull my coils off my Unlimited Rubicon after 4,900 miles. What are the last 2 numbers of the "good ones?"

18 or 19 for the Fronts and 59 or 60 for the Rear.

19/60's are the Best you can get for OE Springs.

does anyone have a list of the non-rubicon spring numbers? Trying to figure out which ones I have, and if it would be worth hunting down rubicon springs to install with my leveling kit.

there is no difference between rubi and non rubi as far as springs go. My sport has 18/58 from the factory which is the same as come on rubis equiped with hard top, automatic and 4dr. some rubis come with 14's on front. it is luck of the draw when it comes to springs.

JKUs with max tow kits will come with higher rated springs. Otherwise check Craigs list or ebay ... When folks do lift kits they'll sell the OEMs cheap

Perhaps this is why I'm seeing "Rubicon springs" with no other specs listed on CL for $50.

I have 17/58 springs on my 4 door sport. Would I be wasting money replacing with 19/60s? I want to install the Tflex spacers leveling kit with rubi shocks and those springs. Good idea or bad?

Yes, the rake is gone and the bumper added did nothing to create sag in the front end. I went with a Rugged Ridge stubby tube. It only weighs about 65 lbs.

With that little difference in spring rates, you'd be wasting your cash in my opinion. I already had 59 springs in the back, but only 15 up front. I went ahead and switched out to 18/59 springs (out of a 2011 JKU) as I mentioned and did see a change.

And somebody asked, and it has been mentioned...it's pretty much luck of the draw when it comes to spring rates in your JKU. I had some of the weaker ones and upgraded to stiffer stock ones. If you have a tow package, you probably (but no guarantee) got 18/59 or 19/60 springs.

If you are getting some extra height, but doing it on a budget, I recommend the route I took. However, I don't rock crawl and my off road is on hunting trails, so it makes no sense for me financially to invest in the bigger lift kits. However, if you are planning to be a rock crawler or mud bogger I would recommend spending the cash up front and going with a high end lift.

The Difference between those Springs would prob. only be about .5", maybe even Less. Not even enough that you'd Notice.

I'd save the Money and just keep the Springs you have.
