Adding 1/2 inch spacer to rear

I bought a pair of 1.2 inch rear spacers for JK from Teraflex.

I need to raise rear 1/2 inch. My plan is to insert Teraflex spacer first to the Jeep, then OEM spacer and put the coil back.

Teraflex spacers have a ridge at the outer rim. Would OEM spacer fit below Treraflex spacer?

You push on the OEM spacer past that edge so it sits flush on the TeraFlex spacer. Make sure that the OEM spacer is in good shape before you do though because once on you’ll have to cut it off to remove it.

I was able to remove the stock isolator from the TF spacer without any cutting when removing the TF leveling kit and installing a spring lift.

I sure couldn’t. I ended up having to cut mine off and that was a pain in the ***. There is a piece of metal sandwiched in the OEM rubber isolator from the outside edge all the way to the center.
