jdyowa No problems and I take my springs out every few months and paint them a different color. Easy.

yes sir plus rubi coils and shocks they tend to sag less, cutting the fenders gave me 2' more clearance and pinching it as well for more flex with out damage to my tires

Thorshammer7 I had the leveling kit on my JKU, and now on my 2013 JK. No problems while running 33"s on both.

After

Brankz Can u see the difference in the lift? Like if u can tell is higher.
I want to buy a lift but because I have 33s and flat fenders I don't want a big lift
08-21-2013 12:10 PM
ameration I'm pleased with mine so far. I went with the spacers.

Thanks, I found those numbers in the service parts for the kit but the links are broken, if I click on the part numbers I get a 'page not found' so I wasnt sure if they were available.

An option to buy the leveling kit with the QD hardware would be nice, since everything is apart doing the spacers it would have been easier to do the QDs at the same time.

KP50 Its kind of hard for something to wrong with spacers lol. I have the teraflex puck kit for a couple months now and I'm as happy as can be. Ride didnt change at all and it looks fine with stock 255/17s or the 285/70/17 duratracs.

Mine had a pronounced rake new and the extra 1" in the front makes it look better. Although depending on the angle you are viewing it it does look higher in the front at times.

Looking from the rear the front appears lower:



Looking from the front the front appears higher (both pics taken at the same time):



Overall for the $$ I'm very happy with it, the Jeep looks just the way I want it and rides like stock. It would be nice if teraflex gave the option of the quick disconnects for the sway bar links with the spacer leveling kit, not sure if they sell the hardware separate but since the leveling kit includes new links you are 1/2 way to the disconnect kit already

mpersaud2 Had to performance leveling kit springs installed about 5 months ago by Globex Performance in Toms River, NJ. Guys did a great job and have had nothing but fun since. I don't wheel much so this is a minor lift and all that I needed. I'm running 33s but even with stock Sahara rims, the stance looked way better than stock.

dystynkt Had tf leveling kit on my last jk for ~10k miles no issues, now I have the same kit (although new) on my JKU for ~2k miles no issues. Happy with it both times.

msubrave I have the spacer kit with 275/70/18 duratracs and 1.5" wheel spacers. No complaints on the quality of the kit but i wish i went with at least a full spring 2.5" kit. I had to trim the air dam and the tires rub the fenders offroad if flexed. My advice is to just skip the leveling kit if going with 33s. It would be fine with stock tires/rubi takeoffs but nothing larger..

kgg 3 months on spacer kit - no problems.
08-17-2013 08:21 PM
Allibaster I've never heard of any problems. I had a kit on a JK; went on easy, no issues as all.
08-17-2013 08:09 PM
Silverback51 I used the TF 2 inch leveling kit on my 2013 JKU. Just installed the AEV 2 inch spacer kit today in my daughters 2013 JKU. I wish she had gone with the TF instead of the AEV. The TF was much easier to install.
08-17-2013 06:50 PM
nmdesertrat On my 4DR the TF kit worked perfect. However, on my '13 2DR Rubicon with heavy front bumper and winch didn't work out. Not the Kits fault. My springs on the front are 14's. Now I have to find a place that will sell me 18's or 19's. Called the dealer where I bought the Jeep and they said it might void my warranty. So I not messing with them. All in all the TF kit is the cat's meow.

Eichster I've had mine on for about 4 months now with no issues at all. Did it myself and just added Rubicon take off shocks which really helped the ride. I really like the stance the leveling kit gives you especially when you park next to a stock jku.

8figgas Spacers, 2yrs and numerous trips to Rausch Creek, no issues...
08-16-2013 09:17 PM
jwilson2598 Had mine on since December, zero problems, very happy with it.
08-16-2013 08:14 PM
shelbydog I daily drive mine with the kit and have had zero issues. For the guy that's not ready to go "all out" on suspension, I think its great!
08-16-2013 07:29 PM
TRAUMAhead No problems, about 25k miles/over a year, 35s went on at the same time. Looking to switch to either Teraflex or EVO MFG leveling kit springs since the stock ones are sagging.

Silverback51 People very seldom post anything when something works well. Just human nature.

I have had mine in a couple weeks now and everything is fine.

I'm installing an AEV leveling kit in my daughters JKU tomorrow and will have a good comparison between the two different makes.
08-16-2013 04:04 PM
Cwhite No problems with mine either. About 6 months now.

I took a chance and went with the leveling kit and I am extremely happy. I did the install myself. I checked, then double checked to verify the springs seated correctly before hand tightening, then I lowered and verified again. I tighted everything to specs and verified once more...everything looked great. I have looked everything over a couple times since and still no bending or unseated springs. The leveling kit actually gives you a 1" in the back and then about 1.75" up front to remove the rake. It may be because I also went from the 13/55 to 19/59 springs giving me an extra 1.5", but my steering wheels is ever so slightly off center now (the alignment is perfect, just the steeling wheel is turned). Fixing the steeringwheel is a super easy fix, I just havent had the time.
a simple twist on the drag link adjustment collar will get you straightened up. Just have an assistant sit in the drivers seat to tell ya when it's right.
