Honestly any shop should be able to do this easily. Replace the front springs, insert a rear spacer. Attach a brake line extension and the shocks.

Where do you guys install rancho lift kit with shocks? I live in Boston. So I can purchase them via on-line but don't know where I have to go to put them in my JKU. A mechanic at a local auto-shop said he can do it after reading an instruction (I printed from the web and showed him) but looked he didn't know exactly how to... Rancho! Can you recommend any authorized or qualified shop I can go?

|pazbich3||That's what I figured. Thanks for the confirmation. Looking to get this lift by the end of the month and install the Jks quick disconnects a month after (not the cheapest, but seem to be the best made) . No plans to off-road until this summer.|
|03-06-2014 01:25 PM|
I am still using mine but I unbolt them for going off road because the angle is pretty steep with the stock ones you may invert them while flexing.

|pazbich3||Can anyone confirm that it's OK to reuse the front endlinks(sway bar links)? I know the directions say to reinstall the same ones. At this point, I'm debating whether to wait and buy the Jks quick disconnects at the same time or if I can hold off on those for a while. Thanks|

|Brit Nick||So.. If standard JK springs and shocks fit on a TJ, any reason this kit wouldnt fit too ?|

Hah, there 20 pages of pics in this thread, starting with mine on page 1.
But seriously, I've been running this lift for a year and have no complaints.

Here ya go...Rancho Suspension: SPRING PROMOTION
Btw - Taking my mods slow, one at a time. This would be my first mod per the suspension. Not ready to upgrade wheels just yet. Okay I install this kit, tires & rims later? Pics appreciated. Thanks yall.

Rancho Suspension: SPRING PROMOTION
Absolutely a great deal for anyone that is just wanting to level it out and get a bit of a lift and go 33's on a DD. No doubt at all this is the deal to get.
|03-02-2014 11:58 PM|
Rancho has a $50 mail in rebate for this kit that runs from March 1 to June. Final price from Amazon would be $330 shipped for the 4 door. I think the 2 door kit is a little more.
Check gorancho.com for the rebate flyer.
|03-02-2014 11:55 PM|
Mike - What $50 rebate?
|03-02-2014 11:05 PM|
Nice to see this thread up again. This deal is hard to pass up.
Just to give y'all a idea. The 9000 shocks are normally the price of this kit at a discount.
Essentially getting the front coils and rear spacers for free.
Make sure you choose 2 door/4 door.
|03-02-2014 10:43 PM|
The Rancho discounts are back. This lift is currently $380 on Amazon with free shipping. The $50 rebate brings this down to $330 for a hybrid spring/spacer lift with 9000 series shocks.
Bump for a great deal.

Here is a 4 door on 33's, FYI.
|11-22-2013 12:30 PM|
Great info on a reasonably priced system. Looks like a good deal for those of us that want to change the stance.
Thanks, (and very nice to see Vendor support!)

|BigWreck||If I had the correct springs for the 4 four door, would it increase my front lift height? ( I'm assuming yes)|
|11-22-2013 12:21 PM|
Edit looking at those pics. It looks great, but a (tad??) short for a 4 door?
|11-22-2013 12:02 PM|
Rancho, so just to clarify once and for all... Are you saying the springs are the same part number regardless of which kit you get? The only difference in the 2 kits is the height of the rear spacer?
Secondly, can I still install the rear shocks without using the spacer?
Here is a picture I took this morning. I used the sidewalk, curb, and brickline on my house as level points of reference.
Unfortunately, I didn't measure the height prior to installing the front suspension. But I do know that I had pretty bad forward leaning rake prior to the install.
Here's a shot before the install so you can get an idea of the difference the lift made:
|11-22-2013 10:05 AM|
If you are happy with the set up DON'T add the 1.75" spacer that is meant for the 2 door system. You are correct, if level right now that spacer in the rear will reverse rack you.
|11-22-2013 06:48 AM|
Yep, I saw that on Rancho's post above. Mine is the 108. Wasn't sure if you saw the BR9 on the end and thought I was saying 109?
So far I've measured 2 ways.
1. Visually - it looks level
2. Bubble Level - measured it using the window seals as my line. These were perfectly level. Measured side steps and the rear was slightly higher. Couldn't find a flat spot on the roofline to measure.
I'll take some pictures once the sun is up and post them to see if that helps.

I just picked up this system for my 2013 JKU. When I ordered it from 4WheelParts, I specifically asked "This is the 4 Door System, right?" To which they responded "Yes".
Now, I've got the front installed, but haven't done the rear yet.... and it's perfectly level...
I pulled out my invoice and it says RS66108BR9. Based on your email above, that means I have the 2 Door System, right?
If so, are you saying that it is only the back spacers that are different? And that if I use the one they provided I will end up having forward rake again? (back end higher than the front)
If so, would I be able to just skip out on the back spacers altogether and just install the shocks?
