So whats everyone's first impressions on the new Qadratec suspension lift?Based off of the description and component list it looks good for the price.
Is it something you would think about pre-ordering?

I've looked at the kit and still need to see some information before I would recommend it.

Who makes the nitro shocks? I prefer a kit without shocks so I can get the ride I want. Typically, inexpensive nitro shocks don't ride that great.

Is that track bar bracket a frame side mount? Axle mount is the preferred geometry correction.

What is the free length of the coils? Are they in line with the industry for a 2.5" lift?


ETA: The parts remind me a lot of the Skyjacker lift. If that's an axle mount track bar bracket, in the picture it seems to be missing the brace that goes to the diff cover?

Our new suspension kits are a private label. Part of this private label is an agreement not to release the manufacturer information. I can tell you we were involved in the design process and these were manufactured to our specs. Our private label suspension kits are made in the USA!

Thanks!

Fully and completely understand! It's still in our nature to "explore" the possibilities...

Maybe you need a "lift kit review" on WF. :tomatoes:

Is it possible to buy the springs separate from the shocks?

Private labeling and generics can be a good thing because sometimes you get a big brand name at a lower price to protect the brand but this is not always the case. It's not just the initial ride impressions but also the long term durability. Consider the MOPAR lifts, the first thing everyone wants to know is who makes the lift kit because they have offered some great kits from TF but in the past there has been some lesser gear from Superlift. Caveat Emptor.

Weird....

I just looked this up. Assuming we are talking about the 2.5" coil spring lift. the info states front and rear track bar re-alignment brackets, but the part list in the instructions only list the rear TB bracket (Axel mounted). The instruction only show the rear TB being installed.

Misprint somewhere???

Must be since you don't do a bracket in front until you get to around 3-1/2 or 4" of lift. And then you need a drop pitman or drag link flip to keep the geometry correct.

Ill take midwest!!!
Beat me to it..... but I would also gladly review a 2.5" lift on my '14 jku for the midwest market. I still havent pulled the trigger on a full lift yet and I have had her for just over a year now. TF is where I have been leaning and now that taxes are done this trigger is ready to pull. I would love to hear some solid reviews...... or do a review. Also, I think the answer is yes but do I need an exhaust spacer kit for this lift also? New sway bar links needed for the rear??

First timer to the suspension lift

Alright - I ordered the Quadratec 2.5 Maximum Duty lift kit w/ Nitro 8.0 shocks. This is my first suspension lift - I put on a body lift last summer; I will report back once I install and tell you all how it went. I took a look at the instructions online and I think they are far more clear than others I've seen.

Hopefully all this snow melts and I can get off road soon.

I've been eyeballing this lift as well, since I'm not planning on spending a lot for one. However, I'm a disciplined student of the "if it's too good to be true, then it probably is" school. The price on this one concerns me. I will follow this thread and dayhoffj's write-up on it though! :thumb:
