Going with Terra Flex and Bilstein

So after much thought, number crunching and wanting the most bang for my buck...I've decided to go with Terra Flex 4" Springs and Bilstein shocks to replace the RC 6" and Rancho shocks that the PO put on the Rubi. TF's warranty and CS played a huge role in the decision too. Gonna stay with short arms for now...gonna order it tomorrow.

Are you staying with stock short arms? Or are you ordering aftermarket?

I am a huge fan of Teraflex. Everything I have from them so far has been outstanding. Bilstien is like anything else. You here good and bad. I don't have any experience with them personally. I run Tereaflex shocks which have treated me well.
I like my short arms too. Long arms do most certainly help in some situations but for me it takes away a little clearance. I'm staying with my adjustable shorties until I figure out what direction I want to go when I get around to stretching my rig someday.
Good luck on your build.

Short arms work ok at less than 5 inches of lift. Tjs always seem to suffer from poor longarm kits. A real good Tj longarm system should tuck everything above frame, but sadly most seem to hang low. So I with chad. Rock the shortys

That's what I heard. TF from what I understand is aluminum where Currie is steel.

^^ yup going with Currie, not sure Currie Ultimate or Correctlync... Thought about Savvy but seems a bit of overkill.
