2.5 BB Advice
 
Thinking about giving my 2012 stock JKU a 2.5 BB. Need to know which one is best for me and economical. It's my everyday vehicle and will be doing some mild offroading considering I live in LA. Ive been looking at the TeraFlex BB's but I dont know which I need. The one with shock adapters, the one with shocks, or the ones without shocks. What is best for an everyday vehicle and would also like to fix the JK's rake. Thanks

Obviously shocks are a great way to go but if your budget is limited the Shock adapters are a great way to stay in budget.

I think it is a personal preference. I will say that I am extremely happy with my teraflex shocks.

What size tires are you running? I just installed the TF leveling kit (2" in front and 1" in rear) and it improved the stance nicely. Also helps with any rake you might have. Mine is also a DD. As brianb said, its all a matter of preference.

Here's a link to my thread with before/after pics.

Tagging onto this thread, will a 2.5BB with new shocks improve from the stock ride? I hate the "floating" steering and diving in feeling when turning the corners. Can you combine the 2.5 teraflex spring kits but add rancho rs9000 shocks?

It will help some but part of that feeling is the stock spring rates so in order to change it entirely you would really need to do a 2.5" spring lift.

I couldn't be happier with my teraflex parts. I have the 2.5" spring lift wirh shocks, their 1/2" spacers in the rear, and their 1.25" body lift and the ride is awesome.
