Rough Country Lift

I'm looking to put a 2" rough country lift on my 05 WK limited. Do I need a steering stabilizer and shocks with it?

The wk has IFS and a steering stabilizer won't fit. With our steering setup there isn't a way to put one on, although I wish here was. As for shocks, unless they are near new, replace them when doing the lift.

I have investigated the Rough Country lift. They claim it levels the Jeep so I am assuming that the back lift spacers will be "shorter" than the front. This may or may not be desirable but otherwise I think it is a good lift at a great price.

To get mine to sit level with the RC spacers, I stacked 2 coil isolators on top and bottom of the rear coils.

I ended up getting the Terra Flex 2" lift kit which maintains the stock "rake" of the vehicle. It was a bit more money but the vehicle will sit level when towing or loaded with gear for an off road adventure/road trip. Another consideration however is that the lift moves the rear axle in a downward/forward arc because of the single link or "trac bar" which locates the rear axle. The rear wheels are moved slightly forward because of this and I may need to lengthen the locating link but we'll see what it looks like when I get it all installed. The Terra Flex 1.5" spacers were also a bit more money but have a very nice anodized finish that should resist corrosion and are hub centric. Now hopefully I can cram the Bridgestone Duellers ( 255 70 18,s ) into the wheel wells without rubbing issues. I will post up some photos of my build on the appropriate thread when I get it all together.
