Teraflex Lift Kits
 
Hey all,
So I'm looking at 2 1/2" Teraflex Lift kits, and I see that there a couple of them. I'm kinda new to the whole off roading thing and not sure what the difference means other then the obvious. So there is the one without shocks, with shock adapters and with shocks. I'm not too hardcore into off roading but would like the lifted look and the ability to be able to do some if the time came. If someone could please explain the difference and possibly point me in the right direction, it would be greatly appreciated. :)

I ordered the lift with the shocks. I am no expert either, but I know that some opt for the Bilstein 5150 (I think is the number) shocks and not the Teraflex ones. I did not do this.

You will lose some downward flex with the adapters. The new shocks extend longer than stock.
Northridge4x4 offers Bilsteins with the 2.5 kit but you have to call/pm them.

I had the Bilsteins and now use TF 9550's. The Bils run more firm on road.

If you have the stock (black) shocks, I would upgrade. Another option would be is to find a set of Rubicon/upgraded gas shocks (red) and buy the kit with extensions. They will work fine for you :)
