Best shocks for TeraFlex 2.5" Budget Boost
 
When I lifted my 2011 JKU, I installed just the 2.5" TF Budget Boost and used the shock extensions. Now I'm running 35" Goodyear MTr's on 15 inch wheels and am wondering if I shouldn't spring (pun intended) for bigger better actual length shocks over my stockers.

Does anyone have actual experience over comparing them and what do you suggest I buy? If you say Bilstein 5100's (etc), how can I tell what length I need? Is there a serial number for one made specifically for a 2.5 inch lift?

Sir,

I just order my TF Budget Boost and went with the Bilsteins 5100s shocks. I just order according to the item description for a JKs lifted with 1.5-3" lift.

Rancho RS9000XL's 29/30'S - set on 3 in front, 4 in back... never have to worry about being to stiff or too soft, just adjust as needed. Paid $80/shock and got one free with Shocktober rebate... Verrry happy!

I did these Ranchos with the Teraflex 2.5 spring lift and 35's as well. Love them and the adjustability.

I haven't lifted, yet, but I'll be going with Fox 2.0s. These were recommended by a local builder and then by a couple of my customers that do builds. Their other recommendation is King but I don't know much about them. The Fox are about $760 and a place like Northridge discounts 10%.

The TF tuned res shocks ?
These are actually great shocks and valved right for the JK.
I've heard the regular 2.0's run stiff.

Im thinking Budget boost = small budget and those higher priced shocks are out of OP budget. Rancho 9ks are more practical and work well.

Actually, I meant the reservoir shocks, should have looked before posting! My lift choice is the Teraflex 2.5" Long Arm. Should be finalizing details this week.
