Teraflex Leveling Kit w/o Shocks or Teraflex Performance Leveling Kit

Hi all,

This is the first mod I am going to do, and my JKU is 1 month shy of 1st year anniversary. The Jeep is used as a DD (30 miles on highways and 10 miles local roads per day in average) and haven't used it for offroad yet, though I have plans to hit the trial, but not on a regular basis.

Jeep's description:
2017 Rubicon
6 speed Manual
Stock vehicle.

I am planning to just LEVEL the Jeep, as I recently noticed the factory rake it has, where the front end is low when compared to rear end and is not levelled. I am not that interested in lifting the jeep, and even after level, I plan to continue to use the stock tires.

Please advice me which one of the levelling kit (Teraflex Leveling Kit w/o Shocks or Teraflex Performance Leveling Kit) will help, any pros and cons between them.

Thanks!

If you just want to get rid of the rake then IMO the performance kit is overkill. The rake is only 1", so you don't need to do anything to the back 1/2 of the Jeep at all. Just add 1" spacers at the front coils and you'll be good to go.

You can check with the tech support guys at Teraflex, but I doubt that you would even need to change to the longer sway bar links.

I was looking at the non performance one:

JK 1.5" SPACER LEVELING KIT



Later on in life (once it is no longer a DD) i will likely start looking to move to a long arm kit with much more lift.

I will say I ran the TF performance kit for a little bit and it was great. I truly did not notice any drawbacks with adding the kit, only gains. I and a lot of others agree that the factory rake isn’t a great look. if you’re interested I have that TF Performance Leveling for sale for dirt cheap. I put at a maximum 4K miles on it. Have bilstein 5100 shocks to match(same mileage).

If you don't want a lift do what AZrat said, just add one inch TF pucks. Leave the stock isolators in when adding the one inch pucks. I didn't add longer sway bar links when I did mine and it was fine. I then upgraded to the puck leveling kit. It still rode great. Shortly after I upgraded to the TF 2.5 inch spring lift.

Good luck.
