So looking at Teraflex BB 2.5" kits theres three different ones. One with shocks,one without shocks, and one with shock adapters. Which one do I need for just street use?

Also I'm gonna buy 15inch mb 72 wheels but there is a huge selection of wheel offset sizing. Looking at discounttiredirect.com which one do I need for a 07 unlimited?

Thanks.

When you install a 2.5" lift kit, you'll need longer shocks.

There's three ways to do this: (1) Buy a kit that comes with longer shocks, (2) buy a kit that doesn't come with shocks and supplement it with good shocks of an appropriate length from another company, or (3) buy a kit that comes with shock extensions to extend your stock shocks.

So now do you see why the TeraFlex kit is offered with three variations? You can get any version you want, but you'll need to account for your shocks somehow.

As to wheel offset, Discount Tire is a sponsor on this forum. Send them a PM and you'll usually get a good price and the right information.

Yes I agree! TF makes a great kit and a good why to get your JK lifted for cheap. Spring for the shocks if you can. You need them and it is nice to have them matching the lift. They will also treat you better than the adaptors. Not a big fan of those!

Also, MB makes around a 3.75"BS on the 72's. You should be fine with anything from there up to a 4.5"BS.

Let us know if we can help...
