2012 jeep installing budget boost on saturday. Kit only came with 2" lift spacers. Will I need sway bar extensions? Or anything additional. I read online that once you go above 2" lift you need them then. Hopefully I can still install the lift tomorrow!
Thanks
Steve

I would think you would need them. I just installed a Teraflex leveling kit which is 2" in the front and it had longer sway bar links.

Move the rears to the front and get longer ones for the rear.

Why wouldn't you put the longer ones up front? I just did the leveling kit last weekend and put the new tf link up front

The stock rears are longer than the stock fronts so for a 2" lift you replace the fronts with the rears and get longer ones for the rear.

...and just then, he heard a loud, metallic snapping sound from the garage.


Kidding. :D

Ok so put the rear factory links in front and the new TF links in the rear?

if you already have longer ones, the TF links, than puut them in the front. I would bet SilverSport was saying for folks that do not have any aftermarket links, place rears up front and replace the rear.

Although I might be wrong.

So what's the advantage of having the factory rear links up front and the tf links in back
That they are long enough to handle the extra lift, if you compare the stock rear vs the stock front you are looking at about 3 in difference

The advantage is you are only buying one pair of links. (by putting stock rears on front)

Quick Disconnects

When I put on my lift I went with front sway bar disconnects. I didn't realize the difference they would make on the trail. They really allow the front axle to adjust to the terrain. I was impressed.

You may want to consider disconnects if you are taking your Jeep off road.
