Leveling kits

Hi.... I have a stock 2013 Wrangler Sahara 4 door. As we all know the front sits lower than the rear ... I bought a 2 inch ready lift leveling kit just for the front to bring it up to match the rear. Have not installed it yet but wondering if I bought the right size? Will 2 inches make it sit level? Any comments greatly appreciated!!
Thanks

Do a search on this topic there are numerous threads about it. But to answer your question. Yes 2" will be enough to level it. Teraflex kit comes with 2" front 1" rear so it still stills slightly higher in the rear.

I bought the TF 1.5 leveling kit at the same time I bought a new bumper and winch. After all the sag from the additional weight, I ended up only using the 2" in the front initially. Not being satisfied, I upgraded the front springs from 14 to 17 and added the rear 1" and love the stance now.

I have a 2" front leveling kit on my 2014 JKR 2-door and yes it sits level. It looks and runs great. No desire to lift the rear as don't want that rake back and happy on Rubicon stock wheels and tires.

A leveling kit is probably the only lift related thing I want to do to my jeep. But I want something in writing from my local dealership that it will not void my factory or lifetime warranty.

I checked with my local dealership who said a 2" leveling kit would not void the warranty
If you hear any differently please update me.
I am still under regular warranty but was thinking about getting the mopar maxcare lifetime.

Congrats!
When I asked them if there would be any problems with warranty they said as it was only a leveling spacer that would not be a problem at all. I didn't get anything in writing though. From reading on the forums I never found a case where it voided a warranty. Lifts are a different story.
Although I think there are some approved Mopar lifts that do not void the warranty as long as they are done by a dealership.
Happy Jeeping

Your not going to get that. And it won't "void" your warranty.

If something in the lift fails, or because of your lift something fails (perhaps you didn't properly torque everything) they very well could and likely would deny warranty coverage.

But if you install a lift and your hard top develops a leak...well that would be a tough conversation on why the lift caused that.

I mean, otherwise installing seat covers would "void" your warranty. Or a replacement aftermarket antenna, or grab handles.

Did you have it done at the dealership? Trying to get an idea of cost. Definitely something I wouldn't know how to do myself...

It's annoying how much leveling kits are. The leveling kit for my Silverado was $50.

Plus I don't have any tool and have a small garage apartment so I'd have to pay someone to do it.

Plus I'd have to find a shop I trusted. I have to start researching I guess.

Will dealership install a leveling kit or do you have to find a shop?

Not really a tough conversation, it will void your warranty, the lift caused the leak, the jeep was now closer to the clouds, therefore the rain drops were able to make their way in to the jeep easier, your fault, warranty denied!

Also going to be getting a leveling kit soon. I really like the look of this kit since you don't have to compress the springs, which I've heard is the most laborious part of the process and you will almost definitely need a specific tool (which you can borrow from O'Reilly) to compress them. Taking that step out would be nice. Looking forward to some feedback from more experienced users

I installed the Teraflex leveling springs on my 2103 jk and they went in without using a spring compressor. Supported the frame on stands and lowered the axle. I did find it a little difficult to torque the bolts because there wasn't a lot of room under the jeep.

I purchased by JKR from a private seller 5 months into warranty with only 1000 miles on it. He had already done the leveling at Les Schwab I think.
Before I purchased the Jeep I went into the NW dealership and discussed it with them and they said there would be no warranty issues.
Perhaps they can do it for you but a independent shop may be cheaper.

I did the puck leveling kit from teraflex. 2 in the front 1 in the rear. And even having no mechanical experience, it was still easy to do. You are correct in the springs being the hardest part, but still did it in an hour and a half. Could've done it in less, but I forgot to put a piece back in the front end and had to take it back apart 😅. The instructions that came with it were pretty clear and precise.
