Lifting JKU with 2.5 in Teraflex. Any advantage going one way or the other?
You are going to use 1of2 holes at 2.5 . The middle hole will give more caster just like the Rancho bracket with 1 hole. The lower hole will prob never be used.After reading the notes from here, I went with the AEV bracket. I liked the multiple settings for the different lifts. Can never go wrong with adjustability. When I looked at mine after the TF 2.5" coil lift, I could see where the tech had played with 2 of the settings to get it in just right.

For the 2.5" Suspension Kit use the upper hole location, the 3.5" Suspension Kit use the middle hole location, and for the 4.5" Suspension Kit use the bottom hole.You are going to use 1of2 holes at 2.5 .

Or the Synergy fixed front LCAs. 1/4 inch longer than stock, DD bushings, perfect for 2.5 to 3.5 lifts...it all depends on your application.Third choice: get Terreaflex "sport" control arms. Much cheaper than adjustable control arms and, lower maintenance, better clearance than AEV brackets, works with 2.5 and 3 inch lifts. It's what I have.
I got the synergy fixed arms for my 2.5 lift. Very happy with them. They're high clearance design as well. Caster went from 3.0 to 4.8. My 2 door rides so much better.Or the Synergy fixed front LCAs. 1/4 inch longer than stock, DD bushings, perfect for 2.5 to 3.5 lifts...it all depends on your application.
If I never did any rock crawling I'd probably have stuck with the AEV brackets. For the moderate rock climbing I do (annual trips to Drummond Island MI) the LCAs work out better. If I take her to Moab I'll bash the LCAs anyway at the lift/travel/tire I'm currently running.
