Hmm yea that's exactly what I was going for with my teraflex springs, I ended.up with around 1.75" front and just over 2" in the rear. Keep us updated on how they turn out!

marslim Anyone have some updated info/experiences or pictures with these springs?? I'm running the teraflex performance kit with 4 door springs on my 2dr and wondering how they compare??
11-02-2013 06:55 PM
Espo78 I don't see why they don't have a 1.5" kit similar to the 2.5" stock mod. Why include control arms with the smallest lift, but not the 2.5 stock mod? It just doesn't make sense. Sell a 1.5" Stock mod for $399 and people will buy it.

This.

If I was starting over I could see the 1.5" and some flat fenders for me. Could throw a low Gobi rack on and still might fit in the garage.

Look how popular the TF perf kit is. Trust me these will sell.

aaronsjk I spoke with RK today and they told me they would be selling by themselves as well. So you could buy just the front springs and just the rear springs or together. They wouldn't reveal a price though...

They also confirmed that on a stock 2dr JK it would give about 2.5" of lift. Could be a great setup for those looking for that 2.5" for their 2dr.

HunterTheBeagle That's kinda what I was hoping that if it came down to it a bracket would do the trick.

Yea... The bracket should set it close. Depending on the height with the 1.5" coils you might not even need correction.

the x factor comes with double adjustable front and rear, the max just the front and the expedition with neither. I believe addressing the track bars is critical to your ride. Even stock from the factory they can be off with all the different spring weights out there.

Yeah these are definitely different kits altogether. Not gonna lie though the triple rate coils front and rear though are intriguing. With a good set of shocks could be a killer setup. PRICEY though.

TxJprs Old Man Emu has a number of spring combinations that will work for either 2 or 4 door Jeeps. Proven ride quality and performance. Just get their stock/light load if you are looking to stay near that 2" mark. Give David at Northridge 4x4 a call. He'll steer you straight, provide great service, good pricing and probably has what you need in stock.

I was really hoping for a stock mod type setup and price point for the 1.5. Will be available this Christmas.

Iirc like their 2.5'a and 3.5's they only offer one coil for both 2 and 4 door.

4 door will be like installing TF's perf leveling kit. The 2 doors will get more lift but shouldn't exceed 2.5"

My RK 2.5's lifted my 2 door 3.5"

Can't really compare to TF's because RK only offers one coil.
I mean 4 door TF 1.5's on a 2 door vs RK's 1.5" maybe

I am curious why RK would call theirs a 1.5" lift if they say it is going to lift 2.5"? Why not call it what it is?
In my never ending research on smaller type lifts it does kinda seem that not many run and/or a fan of the tf perf leveling kit. Honestly I think a lot of people hear "leveling" and assume spacers and then look at the price and say F that noise. That kit is a 1.5 coil lift without shocks and if looked at that way it is pretty competitive. But now with RK realizing the potential market of new JK'ers tryin to stuff 35's with 3.21 and not knowing if they can fit their spare in the stock tire carrier and use minimal lift! I think it's smart.


I may or may not described myself in that last rant........
09-26-2013 05:37 PM
JMOD Well if its a 1.5 I can only guess, but 2.5 stock on a JK and 2" on a loaded JK,,,, with a JKU that would be 2" and 1.5 loaded?

Sounds like they want to compete with the ranch 2" and TF 1.5?????
