My kit came with brake line re-Lo brackets- not sure if it still does. I replaced and re-routed mine later but only AFTER I extended my limit straps and made some other changes. At full droop I was pretty tight at that point.
I have a 2 door and replaced my front DS first. I had a clunk- which may not have actually been the DS. But I was also having issues with my tranny skid and the exhaust spacers so I killed two birds with one stone. Just keep an eye on it like Kjeep said. Usually the boot will go first and you'll know.
Don't worry about this kit. I have 25K miles, I thrash mine and I haven't had a single issue.

Take a paint marker and draw a line across each bolt. All control arms and 2 track bars .. Especially the front.
Thanks kjeeper, will do

JeepRubicon99787 I just hope I have made the right decision with this lift kit. Otherwise I'll end up buying more parts just to get things corrected and if that does turn out to be the case. Then I guess I will have to purchase adjustable control arms too, which for some strange reason I was going too. But because the kit states I don't need anything else, I didn't so let's see how true this is..
11-22-2014 05:10 PM
JeepRubicon99787 I know it's not the best pictures of the front and rear shaft angles. This is how they look.
11-22-2014 05:06 PM
JeepRubicon99787 By the way,

just incase anyone runs into the same issue I did, here is a quick answer to a problem I ran into a month later with the kit installed.

One fine day, I was driving to work and noticed a clunk noise that can also be felt in my steering wheel. More so from the left side of the front.. This only happens when coming to a stop or acceleration from stand still.

I could feel the cluck and knew something was loose, so I decided to get it checked out and found that my lower left control arm bolts became loose and got them torqued back and problem solved.

kjeeper10 You have a 2 door so the rear would go first. The front will depend on pinion/caster angle and if you wheel the jeep.

Just keep a eye around CV joints for grease splatter.
I have been doing that, on my previous Jeep builds I always changed out the shafts so this is the first time not doing so.

Fingers crossed

JeepRubicon99787 Additional to the kit, I purchased the front and rear TF - HD monster adjustable track bars, as both my front and rear diffs moved.

All of sudden, after a few washs I now have the same annoying squeeking noise from the rear end of my JK.

So I think I need to trace it and get it greased, or I will end up loosing it LOL. I'll try and see where it's actually squeeking from and report back with my findings.

JeepRubicon99787 Hi all
I also installed the same kit on my 2014 JK Rubicon 2dr.

Here is a snap shot of the kit installed

2.75 front TF uppers.

Discos yes .. Standard links can be run in the stock mounts.

JeepHerz X2 on Synergy. I have a lot of their stuff and have beaten the crap out of all of it without issue.

You can run the links in the stock position. The issue is with quick discos if you have them.
I HIGHLY recommend Synergy over EVO or AEV.
Price/HD drag link and metal on metal TRE's.

How much left do you have ?
Steering correction requires 3" bump stop.

Quite frankly right now if I am going to add $400 to the price of the lift it's going to be to install the rear Teraflex bolt on speed bumps and toss the extended cups and rubber bullet style bumps the kit includes.

I am just trying to think a little outside the box so I can disassemble the front end as few times as possible. Who knows if I would notice if it had drop brackets or not after the install and I'm sure it handles great with the stage 3 kit out of the box.

My first purchase post lift will likely be the Teraflex monster front track bar. I just want to see how far to the left the axle moves once installed to see if I am going to replace the stock bar. I think I've read it moves over like 1/4 inch and so long as the wheels have proper offset the 12.5" wide tires I plan on running should not rub.
Makes sense; I forgot you were getting the kit for such a good price. I would suggest getting the front track bar and putting it on with the lift. I think it will be needed and was on mine. The only thing I added besides the adjustable front track bar was new bolts for the control arms and the front and rear track bars. I installed those myself about a week after I had the lift due to my reading here about death wobble.

kjeeper10 I forget, are you having the dealer install this ?
This why you're choosing the Mopar lift ?
10-07-2013 05:37 AM
rdg04578 Looks good but what was the total cost for kit--and installation if you did not do it yourself?

MarcelOrtiz How were you able to install a basketball ring on too of your jeep? Nice idea

Either way you can't go wrong.

Can lead to more oversteer and unstable handling

It seems that both rancho and aev feel that at 3" or so lift the angle of the front control arms even if adjustable benefit from being adjusted to provide better handling and more anti-dive characteristics when braking or braking into a turn

I probably will just run it as mopar released it but I am trying to limit the number of times I buy things to have the best handling setup I can without breaking the bank too bad

Why not just use the mopar kit as is; ride is great and off road capability is very good. What benefit would you get for the added cost and the lost ground clearance?
