|dav5942||Thanks for pic. Looks like you still have a front rake. Wonder if I should go with an additional 1" in front. Did not ask TF what they thought, only the 1/2".|

Am planning to add some 1" spacers I have laying around.

Subscribed because I'm in the same situation at the moment.

|nmdesertrat||Had the same problem after the TF leveling kit. I had 14's on the front. I went to 19's and now I'm level.|

|dav5942||Did you add the 1/2" spacer? Pictures. I went and added the rear 1" to the TF leveling kit, now I'm 1" high in the rear. Probably will try the 1/2".|

Someone else used to make some metal ones for TJs but they were infamous for their rough ride.

Mark with TF replied to my email. I'm posting his response for benefit of anyone who might have the same question in the future.
"Yes you can add the ˝ spacers and should not experience any other issues. The shocks are long enough that there should be no problem there especially with it being the Rubicon. Bump stops will stay the same as they stop the tire from traveling to far up and hitting the fender. I would go ahead with the 1/2 “ spacer to make up the lost lift height.

|legitposter||Remember that removing the 'rake' will result in a higher front end. You have to pick one or the other... Truly frame level, which means there will be a visual rake, or remove the visual rake and have a higher front end.|

|rubisteph||Unless you also use longer shocks or at least shocks extensions, you have to know when to stop..... otherwise you'll be using that winch sooner down a trail than you should....|

We left the 1" pucks out of the rear on the TF leveling kit, just doing the front 2". Measuring wheel to fenders show it high in the front. But measuring the frame distance to the ground shows it 1/4" high in the rear! Looking at the top looks level. Take out the rear spacers and you will probably get rid of the rake "look".
Your tires are only .6" higher and 1.2" wider than stock-so clearance should not be a problem without the rear pucks.

|cc4005||Thanks for the replies. I've emailed TF.|

Splurge and get the longer coils. And if so get the shock extensions. Its not that much and doing it right the first time will save you in the long run.
I stacked coils, spacers and everthing I could get my hands on to get my old TJ higher. If I would have just bought 6 inch coils in the first place I would have saved time, money and ride quality.
Just my two cents.

|ThingsAbove||Just call or email Teraflex and ask if their spacers can be stacked. I've received fantastic customer service from them.|

|spinlock||Adding 1/2" lift the right way is no big deal just don't with double spacers. They are not designed as stackable washers to achieve what ever lift you want. Go with taller spacers or stiffer coils.|
|10-02-2013 03:09 PM|
Not sure if your shocks have enough travel to accommodate a 2.5" lift and disconnecting. You won't get much flex and you could possibly put undue wear on it by frequently maxing it out.
Not that big of a problem. Replace them now or replace them later. You still only buy 1 set either way

|daggo66||Personally I wouldn't double up coil spacers.|

Can I add another 1/2" coil spacer?
'13 JKUR, stock wheels, 1.5" wheel spacers & 285/70R17 Duratracs. I installed a TF leveling kit (1" rear spacers, 2" front) and was pretty much dead level, measuring fenders at center of wheels. Then later added heavy front/rear bumpers + winch. Bumpers and winch dropped me 1/2" in back and 3/4" in front. Over a few months, front settled another 1/4" or so, getting me back to about 1/2" rake which I'd like to get rid of.
Question: Do I need to worry about other mods--shock extensions/new shocks, bump stop extensions, etc.--if I add another 1/2" spacer up front (2-1/2" total)? I do some moderate trails and occasionally disconnect...nothing very serious though. Since I'm already 3/4" lower in front than the kit is designed to put me due to bumper/winch weight, it seems like adding a 1/2" back might not be a big deal. I know new springs would be a better solution, but I won't be spending that money right now.
