This is what I found:

TERAFLEX 1.5" LEVELING KIT

2007-2012 Jeep Wrangler JK & Unlimited (Rubicon)



On this site: Leveling Kit 1.5" by Teraflex for Jeep Wrangler JK

Also, go to this site and look under "Descriptions" and "Specifications".

JK 1.5" Performance Leveling Kit 4 Door - Teraflex Products | TeraFlex Suspensions

Sounds like it fits, to me.

On another note, why not just buy a TF 2.5" lift kit w/springs & shocks? You can get one with Bilstein 5100's for $775 from Northridge 4x4.

Yea I would go straight for the 2.5 TF or AEV. I regret not going that way first. I got the TF level kit.

Don't you mean with Teraflex shocks? :confused:

Well, if your going to do a budget boost leveling kit, you should look at this one. It's a 2" leveling kit (2" front, 1" rear). Very cheap with new front sway bar links for $130. It's the one I just got for mine. They are going on top of a already coil spring upgrade for me so I will be getting a total of around 3" but still a cheap alternative.

That leveling kit will fit your rig just fine. I run it on my '11 without issue.

Nah, he means the Bilsteins. If you contact NR, they will do that 2.5 and Bilsteins kit for 775 shipped. Used to be 750 shipped but the price went up a bit over the past couple months.

Nope. Northridge sells a version w/the Bilsteins. Gotta call Dave to order it, though.

Ah so. :thumb:

I'd agree. Go big or go home, at least 2.5. Still saving up til I have enough scratch for it, and those Bilsteins help to smooth things out and tighten up the ride a bit from what I've heard.

Unless you want to go with 35" or bigger tires in the future, don't let these guys talk you into something you don't want. I have the TF leveling kit on my '12 and love it! Easy install and it maintained the factory ride. Fixed the rake from the factory and also from my new bumper/winch combo. Gave my JK a nice, aggressive look!

Is your kit the one that came with the front sway bar links trowber24??

I read lift post all the time so here is the road I went and here are all the things I have done with a 2010 1.5 budget boost first was Rough Country broke my springs yep I drive hard off-road but it did allow for 33 inch tires Next 2.5 Sky Jacker 2.5 Lift great ride shocks I blew out so ES9000 Pro Comps with 35 inch tires. The next was 3inch Terra Flex with Pro comp Shocks. The Kit is now 4.5 lift from Rubicon Coast Drive shafts and 37' inch tires. If you wonder the cost I could have saved a bunch if cash and just lifted to 4.5 with 1.5 body there is no such thing as a budget boost because unless you are not gonna really take your Jeep of road your suspension will fail and you will have other issues. Think about it this way every 300 you spend in half measures will cost you a grand in tires so before you step off to raise your jeep decided where you really want to go. Save Your cash go one time my mistakes have coat me 5K at this point. I wish you happy hunting but talk to your friends who off road decide what your end project is and remember the monthly payments you are making suck when every week you are paying for a crappy choice. Just my opinion This was Sunday and does it look like I don't drive off-road??
