Exhaust spacer

Hi all, just got the teraflex 2.5" coil lift put in and am seeing mixed opinions about the exhaust spacer - is it necessary / required for a 2015 jku with the 2.5" lift?

Thanks

Pick the rig up by the frame. Leaf lift or take the tires off jack up the front and put jack stands under the frame, slowly release the hydraulic jack and let the front suspension droop as far as it can. look at the front driveshaft with it in this position and see if it contacts the exhaust. Most times the driveshaft hitting the exhaust will keep the front suspension from drooping fully.

totally depends on shock length and whether disconnected or not. if disconnected and long shocks you will have issues if running with your swaybar links connected and 24" long extended shocks you will be fine.

as Jwalters says you really need to check by supporting your frame and drooping your front axle to see what happens.
