Something else is wrong. There's no way a 2" spacer lift --using the stock coils--will cause the issues you're having,Have been running this on my shorty for over 12 months - steering is still twitchy and sometimes downright scary over bumps in the road at speed (so slow down when you can see dodgy patches in the road ahead) great to have the extra height over the 33s - I'm always careful offroading with this kit as I don't want to make something break / fall out but it has taken me to many, many fun places! Over the 12+ months, I settled on what I didn't like about the factory suspension (or what I think I don't like haha) and am now going to get a 2.5" lift to suit my tastes (flexy/progressive coils mainly) Not sure what Rancho are offering at the moment, but their 2" kit may be more appropriate for you if you are in the US, price and functionally wise, Teraflex kits also? (I am not - I'm in Australia, and our vehicle laws leave a lot of areas where we can be fined and such for having some of the fun things you peoples can get ( !!! ) In other words, you can have a lot of fun with a spacer lift, but you'll most likely have more fun with a coil & shock lift
Load range of the tires ?Tyre psi = 30 on front 28 on rear - dont get me wrong, on fine roads I love it, but when driving on not so fine paved roads, more attention needs to be paid, especially with the 33s... and in the wet... Did a fishtail in the 2 door and 33s after a rain shower and hitting a bump after coming out of a left hand corner - damn that was a butt clenching moment lol Everything apart from front bumper & AEV 2" spacer lift = stock - can provide pics of the JK if required
I have installed 2 of the 2" kits they are easy. Not sure what you mean by longer and shorter rear shock bushings. Are you talking about the rear shock extensions? if so they should be the same size.Has anyone ever installed this kit I just got it today and it look easy until I look at the rear shock bushings there are longer ones and shorter ones and not sure what to use
yes that is correct. the 2 longer ones are used on the front lower shock mount brackets. keeps them from squishing when torqued down.Yes sorry just looked again and it has 4 of the same size and 2 longer ones that look like they r used for the front one on each side
I installed the AEV 2" on mine. Fairly simple installation. Here are my suggestions:Anyone ever installed this kit open to any tips?
