The seller didn't answer me for 2 days and I thought I was screwed but when he did respond he hadn't noticed all of his Craigslist email was going to his junk mail folder. It also helped that we were only about 20 miles apart.

|Razer||Thanks, prices are all over the board here. Seen it range from $500 down to $200 so far.|

I have been going back and forth on the TeraFlex 2.5" BB with shocks and without.
I have a '13 JK sport with BFG 225/75/16 KM2's.
It was recommended by an acquaintance in the parts business to get the TF 2.5" BB with Fox shocks and Fox stabilizer.
But, I'm curious about the TF BB kit with shocks. I off-road (no rock climbing) once a month. My JK is my DD.
I also want to upgrade to 33" KM2's on my 16" stock wheels (until I can afford to upgrade those).
Anyone have thoughts/reviews on the TF shocks that come with the BB?
Cash flow is a factor, but I don't want to skimp where I shouldn't. I also don't want to go overboard when I don't need to.
Also, do I need wheel spacers to run 33's on my stock 16" wheels?
I'm overwhelmed trying to get answers from others who are not just trying to sucker a girl in order to fatten their wallets.
Advice/help is appreciated! Thank you!

What did you pay for the package?

Quick question(s) for anyone that can answer I'd be forever thankful.
I'm looking at getting the teraflex 1.5" coil leveling kit because I'm getting an aftermarket bumper and winch. I'm also looking at getting the JKS quicker disconnects too so I'm wondering if the 1.5" kit will actually enable me to use the 2-6" disconnects instead of the 0-2" so that way down the road when I lift more I don't have to repurchase new ones. Any thoughts?
Also wondering what aftermarket shocks go good with these and if anyone with them would recommend replacing the stocks. Thanks in advance!

|victor1955||Hit the jackpot today on Craigslist! Got all of this off of a 2014 JKU Rubicon X with only 2800 miles. Springs are 19/60 so I think this will give me all of the lift I need on my JK Polar. Now I need to find time to install the springs and shocks. Attachment 1355537|

BB= 3" front and 2" rear.
Leveling = 2" front and 1" rear

I'm trying to compare the Teraflex budget boost to the level kit. I see that the BB gives you 2" on front and back. So is it safe to assume that you will still have some rake up front? Seems like a lot of extra $$ for just adding an extra inch.

Ok, checked the ball joints, they are fine. Loosened up everything on the lift and shook the hell out of it then re-torqued... Swapped the two front tires... Also un bolted one of my front upper control arms, measured the opposite arm length and shook again to try to get everything to settle then bolted it back up and torqued.
Just in case anyone is wondering, I'm trying to find a knocking sound coming from the right side and trying to figure out why it pulls to the right after the lift and tire install..
Alignment has been done and caster is within spec....
Will report back tomorrow with my findings...(fingers crossed) :-)

|Rexenator||Factory 32's. It'll be on road only.|

What size tires? Sorry if mentioned.
Be carful with a 35. No worries with a 33"

|Rexenator||So I have everything I need for my lift, except my rear bump stops haven't shown up and they won't be delivered until Monday. I was hoping to get this lift installed this weekend since I'll be out of town for a bit starting mid next week. Is it ok to run without the bump stops over the weekend or should I just wait until the bump stops show up?|

You can trim or run flat flares for increased up travel.

|Earl Balentine||Maybe I won't need a 2.5 lift just to be able to get bigger tires. My 2014 Wrangler Sport has stock 17X7.5 wheels and P255/75R17 OWL On/Off road tires. What size wheels and tires can I go to without a lift?|

A spring with 10 coils which compresses with 500 lbs of force would require 600lbs for the same amount of compression after 2 coils are removed.(example does not take into consideration multi-rate springs)

With tires off the ground. Check the ball joints too. Won't hurt to rule them out.
|07-29-2014 07:03 PM|
Tried cranking on the sway bar links but still got the knocking sound. Guess I will loosen everything and re-torque..... :-(
Also still got the slight pull to the right. I still think it may be the tires. Anyone else getting a pull after the lift was installed...?
Tires are Treadwright Guard Dogs (retreads) running 25psi, started at 30psi and went down from there...
Lift is Metalcloak 3.5" with OME shocks, front and rear trac bars, lower control arms...
Caster is between 4.2-4.5... Should I go more on the caster and see if that helps the pull...??

Cycle for min bump stop if you're looking for max travel.

|Jetjocchris||I will try the sway bar links and everything else that I swapped out during the lift install.. Jeep only has 7500 miles so I'm ruling out any worn parts. Thanks guys. I'll let ya know how it works out.|
|07-28-2014 02:58 PM|
Yes, that can be anything. Shock, swaybar bolts are common. The flares can knock around.
Don't rule out ball joints or tie rod ends based on milage either.
|07-28-2014 02:55 PM|
Had the same problem on my 11.
It ended up being my front sway bar links not all the way tight.
I would try that.
Just my 02.

|Jetjocchris||Gotta track down a knocking sound appearing to come from the left side, can't tell if it's front or rear.. Happens when I am driving slowly, 25-40 mph and I drive over a road joint separation with any difference in elevation between the two sides.. Sounds like metal on metal contact.. Could it be the one of the stock bolts that I re-used with the lift...??? I am pretty sure I have everything torqued to spec... Thinking about taking everything loose and re-torquing... Or ordering the upgraded bolt kit and installing it... Thoughts...??|
