Nice! Thanks think I have an idea of what route I want to take once I save up.

If you are using your stock shocks, then yes. The stock shocks aren't long enough for the additional 2.5 inch pucks.

Silver Billet Just pulled the trigger on this kit with the adapters after Tera-Flex answered a couple questions for me, hearing some great reviews on this one!

I totally agree with the damage that is happening to my shocks/springs.

The kit I bought did not come with shock extensions.

Thus the 9550's are on order. Commuting to work on my bicycle/motorcycle this week.

Does the stock Rubicon have longer span on the shocks?

I will be buying the 9550's shortly.

BTW the pop is not coming from the bracket that needs to be drilled prior to installation. This can happen if you widen the hole after missing the mark. It pays to measure that sucker more than once.

Did you install the extensions for the shocks?

n1as If I'm not mistaken, the shocks become the suspension motion limit in the downward direction, right? Are the shocks meant to take that sort of abuse? I though you always wanted shocks to have more travel than the suspension so they don't bottom out on either end?

Sbrown6288 Awesome!

JTPhoto JK Have this set up on 2 JKs. Rides like stock.
06-13-2011 01:19 PM
InfernoGirl Well, that's what I have, and the ride is very similar to stock. We replaced the front shocks with stock length shocks since we had the stock shocks on the rear still and have the extensions.
06-13-2011 11:16 AM
Sbrown6288 Thanks. I would still like to know how the ride is with the shorter stock rubi shocks.
06-13-2011 10:39 AM
InfernoGirl That's the lift we put on our Rubi, due to wanting to keep the nice Rubi shocks. No problems at all with it, we wheel it often. The ride is still very good, unfortunately the two front shocks broke during installation, so they had to be replaced anyway. In hindsight we probably would have gotten the longer shocks initially and called it a day, had we known we were going to end up replacing shocks anyway. YMMV... PB blast the heck out of the upper shock bolts for a week or so prior to installation. I would have done ours but it was 600 miles away until the day before install....

Tera-flex Budget Boost w/o shocks?

Can anyone offer a review for the Tera-flex Budget Boost w/o shocks. I'm looking at putting it on a rubicon, so I want to use the stock suspension.

How is it at flexing? What is the ride/ handling like?

Have you had any issues with parts from the lift coming off or loosening up like the coil spacers, etc?
