|basecamper||here are a couple pics 1st is with the AEV 2" spacer lift and stock rubi springs and shocks 2nd is with the AEV 2 1/2" Dualsport lift with Rancho 9000xl shocks and Rancho geometry correction brackets. I think the 2 1/2" has some rake vs the 2" spacer lift which really leveled the Jeep out.|

Im in the same boat trying to decide which lift to go with, I'm about to pull my hair out.

Tera Flex 2.5 Lift
I have a few questions about the Teraflex 2.5 inch lift. I have a 2012 JK 2dr with the 255/75 R17 BFGOODRICH MTs. If I choose to do this lift would I need a wheel spacer to make it look nicer? I have an ARB stubby bumper and I feel that my front end is sagging a little. Im getting a good deal on the lift @ $601
Tera Flex #1251002. Any opinions? Pictures?

Here are a couple of views of the RH and LH AEV geometry correction brackets. They drop the lower arms 2.5". Plenty of clearance between front drive shaft and exhaust crossover. This jeep is a standard transmission.
Replaced the factory axle side sway bar bolt with a grade 8, 9/16" x 3" hex bolt as so many have recommended.

|J33P4M3||I'm going to install the Teraflex 2.5" lift from Northridge 4x4 that comes with the Bilstein shocks. I wasnt told I needed an exhaust spacer with this lift... do I? I have a 2013 10A JKUR Auto. I'm getting the AEV correction brackets, so should I also add on the monster bar as well?|

This thread was helpful. I went with the 2.5" AEV lift and geometry correction brackets. Very easy install on the garage floor with a floor jack and couple of jack stands. Used a ratchet strap to pull the front axle rearward during correction bracket install. Ran around a couple of days before installing the correction brackets and the bump steer was hideous. Will keep the 32" tires until they wear out and replace with 33" tires. This kit does not eliminate the weird forward slope. Overall satisfied, learned something about these types of suspensions. No pieces difficult to access.

Thank you for contacting AEV. The shocks will only be available from AEV and we keep those in stock at all times. Please contact me if you have any further questions regarding the AEV product line.

Good kit. I'm conserving cash right now for other things, but I can always upgrade at later time.

I ended up going with RK X-Factor.

|woansleftpeg||How good are the Teraflex shocks? If I were to go the Teraflex route, would I be better off ordering their kit without shocks and then adding Bilsteins or Ranchos, or are their shocks pretty decent?|

So I'm pretty much leaning toward the AEV 2.5" lift. But ... sent an email to AEV specifically asking about replacement shocks and got zero response.
Does anyone here know where on the AEV website (or elsewhere) to find replacements with the "proprietary valving".

Also you can get blisten socks on the tf kit there are places that speck them with the 5100's!

So for the $230 you save with the TF kit you could buy the TF Monster Trackbar.

|Never2Old||I'm one of the many that installed the 2.5" AEV w/ Geo Brackets and have loved the results. The main aspect I was looking for was a lift that would be comfortable to drive, so I opted for the progressive springs, seem to make the most sense to me when looking at the various spring options. I also wanted to increase the clearance and be able to run 35's, last trip to Moab convinced me it was time for change. My jeep is my DD so ride quality was important to me. Good Luck with the decision.|

I am researching these kits as well. Not sure if this adds any useful info but here is the parts list for both hase kits from quadratec:
TeraFlex 2.5" Lift Kit with Shocks
Front and Rear Coil Springs
Front and Rear Bump Stops
Front and Rear Shocks
Rear Brake Line Brackets
Rear Sway Bar Links
Rear Track Bar Bracket
AEV 2.5" DualSport XT
Front and Rear Coil Springs
Front and Rear Bump Stops
Front and Rear Brake Line Brackets
Custom Rear Track Bar
Rear Axle Side Track Bar Bracket
Front Sway Bar Link Brackets
So not getting into quality of specific parts (which is probably pretty important), for the extra $230 the AEV kit has additional front brake brackets and custom rear track bar.
But Teraflex does get additional points for all of their vidoes .

|JTPhoto JK||Thats interesting.. I just had a look at the drop brackets on their site. They also change the location of the upper control arms as well as the lowers. I was unaware of that.. For $99, might be worth a try and see how much difference they really make.|
