Gives you a firmer ride if that's what you want.Side question, With the Teraflex Leveling kit I've seen where some people have changed their shocks and springs to the Rubicon's red shocks and springs; Is this something that is recommended? Is there any benefit to it?
I have the 1 inch Teraflex spacers on mine to level it out in the front. I did not put any spacers in the rear. I came across a set of springs and shocks from a 2014 Rubicon X. My spring numbers are 19s in the front and 60s in the rear. Red shocks. Much firmer ride than original. Easy install and looks better.Side question, With the Teraflex Leveling kit I've seen where some people have changed their shocks and springs to the Rubicon's red shocks and springs; Is this something that is recommended?

ARCS did you measure your rake prior to install? i am considering the same kit or just putting 1/2" spacers in the front to compensate for the 1/2" rake.If you are comfortable with a wrench and have the resources the teraflex leveling kit can be installed in 2-3hrs. I installed the 1.5" leveling kit 2 inch spacers up front 1" in the back...front left spring was a bear to get back in otherwise not bad...took care of the factory rake and raised it a bit, happy with the results...there is a teraflex YouTube video that walks you through the install...
thanks, actually my 1/2" rake is with a barricade bumper + skid plate (a net gain of around 75 lbs up front) and hardtop on. that's why I'm debating the leveling kit vs just the 1/2" front spacers.I didn't measure the rake before I started, based on your measurements it looks like you would need at least a 1" spacer up front if you want to just do that to level out...keep in mind though that if you decide to add weight up front down the road(i.e.-new bumper, winch, etc) that you may end up at square 1 with the rake again. I would recommend the 1.5" leveling kit and DIY-plus side is you learn a lot about the mechanics of the suspension that way too.
Do you have any spacers on there? If not do you have any rubbing at full turn? Thinking of going with simliar setup. Do you have stock rims or something different with different BS?I put the kit on my 14 JKU Sport and I couldn't be happier. Put on 285 70 17 but am regretting not going up to the 305 70 17.
Did you have to get an alignment after the leveling kit was installed?:iamhappy:If this is any help to you-here is a pic of my 2015 with 285/70R/17's with the TerraFlex 1.5" leveling kit. The rims are 17 x 9 Rugged Ridges. I had the dealer install the leveling kit as there was no labor charge because they owed me a favor. You might check with your dealer about making you a deal on labor. I like the kit -have about 1000 mi. on it with no issues.
