TX02TJ From what Ive read, most 2.5 lifts level out the jeep. 3" in the front 2" in back. I will be doing this next week when my Teraflex 2.5 comes in.

Thanks for the info. I'm thinking against upgrading the stabilizer.

Any thoughts on the spacers?

WatchThis! 90 bucks for an alignment on a live axle is a joke since all they will set is the toe and caster.

Costs and Additions to Lift and Tires

Hello,

I went to a 4x4 shop today to get some quotes on a lift and tires/wheels. Everything looks in order price wise for the lift/labor/tires/wheels, however he added in a few suggestions that I could use some advice on.

FYI - I have a 2011 2 Door Sport, mostly stock and this is my first Jeep so I'm not particularly knowledgeable.

He suggested adding in Spacers for the front wheels to level the Jeep. Are these really necessary? Will I notice a difference? Is $37.99 a fair price?

Also suggested Side Shocks/Stabilizers. He mentioned they are more important as you get heavier, larger tires (I'm looking at 34s). Are these really necessary? Will I notice a difference? Is $62.99 installed a fair price?

Finally, I'd just like to check a few of the additional prices, to see if they're reasonable...

Shop Fee - $12.50 (he said this is for equipment - rags, towels, tools)
Alignment - $90.00
Snap-in TPMS Valve - $27.96 (for 4)
M&B - $72.00 ($18 each tire)

Thanks,
-Ekia
