This kit is the standard Rubicon Express 2" coil spacer kit with an upgrade to monotube shocks.

Overall, the install went very smoothly (much easier with two jacks) and did not require a spring compressor to remove the coils or reinstall over the longer bump stops. The spacers themselves were solid and well-shaped. The shocks had a great finish and the included hardware was of high quality. The directions were sufficient and the spacer design is fairly intuitive, but I would have preferred better pictures of the bump stop assembly than the xerox provided. The overall ride was slightly stiffer than stock and I felt no increase in driveline vibration. I would highly recommend as a mild boost that doesn't radically alter your steering geometry.

Good starter kit. It did come with bump stops just in case you're looking to run 32s or possibly 33s. Does better than stock for sure.

Its listed for an XJ but my kit was for a JK and looks awesome; gave me a smooth smooth ride with great damping and enough room for 35s

I plan to upgrade to a 3.5" short arm, super flex system ASAP, but this is fun and works for now. I somehow thought this was going to be "easy" to install, but wrestling with the coil springs is somewhat of a nightmare, and the bar pins on the shocks are crazy hard too! Next time I buy a lift, I think I'll pay the shop to install it.

I bought these from Kolak Performance. Great price, quality and customer service!

I would highly recommend these to anyone looking for an intermediate lift to clear some 31's.
