OK, maybe I was a little harsh on the stock shocks. :) They served well until this point.

Yeah, drilling through and using nut & lock washer would probably have been easier. I gooped up some red...

Hey DTD,

Looking at a set of MB Razor's for my 2012 JKU. I really like the matte black ones, but wanted to go with a 15" rim so I could run 33x12.50 Goodyear Duractracs.

I use the Lange Mirror I when I take my doors off. It drops right in the door hinge bracket.
It does vibrate at highway speeds.
Is it the "best"? Can't say. But it keeps me street legal.

Thanks.

I see that the least expensive kit for the 2dr is sold by by Just Suspensions. Mine was from Amazon. Strange. It's the taller pucks the 2dr needs that adds to the cost! :)

Good luck...

One more question. Does the Teraflex BB level the JK as well, eliminating the factory rake?
