Switching to RK 2.5" coils

Do you guys think I will have any problems running Rock Krawler 2.5" triple rate coils. I will be eliminating the front spacers by Teraflex, I currently have the BB kit. The reason i did this is to eliminate the front rake that is driving me crazy. My research shows that on a 4 door it will net 3" of lift with the RK 2.5" coils. I already have rancho 9000's for up to 3.5" of lift. Has anyone done this before and leaving the Teraflex rear pucks on, but switching to springs before. I will not be disconnecting the sway bars until I get longer brake lines and maybe exhaust spacers, mine is a 2014 JKU

Fyi got a killer deal on the RK coils for 118.00 free shipping

I had the 3.5 coils from RK. I switched to HD 4" OME coils. I really wish I hadn't, my RK coils ride so much better and were more stout. I installed the 2.5 RK kit on my buddy's 2015 JKUR and he loves them.

2010 JKU...i had the TF 2.5" BB with the Rancho 9000s...ended up replacing the BB with the 2.5" RK Triple rates on all 4 corners. I definitely gained at least another 1/2" from the swap. The ride is awesome. no issues what so ever.

install was super easy. took me about 2.5 hours start to finish to swap the pucks/springs out.

my guess is you might have a bit of a "reverse rake" if you only opt to switch out the fronts...

Yeh my only guess would be you would have it in the rear. Just go for front and rear coils. RK is great. I have 3.5 x factor kit on my 2014 jku
