Disconnects install

So I recently purchased the teraflex quick disconnects and going to install them tomorrow. I have a 2012 2 dr and I'm currently running 285's km2 with tuff country 2" in the front and 1" in the rear spacers. I'm curious if ill run into any issues with my brake lines once all is said and done and I'm disconnected at full flex? Also, any recommendations on a synthetic grease for the zerks? Thanks for the help!

When you install them, jack up the frame and let the axle drop with them disconnected and see what play you have in the brake lines? I used white lithium grease in my disconnects when I had them...

Robski,

Before you attach them finally, just flex the Jeep out and check all of your clearances. This will also allow you to check your bumpstops and make sure you wont put a tire into your fender.

Let me know if you have any other questions. I'll be happy to help.

With a 2012-2013 you may need to disconnect the brake line bracket at the axle, it is bolted to the spring perch.

Robski,

It's always best to make sure you're putting them back on while on a level surface. That will make it much easier and you won't have to hammer them on.

Let me know if you have any other questions.
