Teraflex leveling kit or RC 2.5"

I have 16 inch wheels and new 265/75r16 (~32" tires) and want a little lift. Since my tires are new I will be running them for quite a while. I am afraid that the 2.5" RC BB will be too much for 16" tires and 31.6" tires. This is why I am considering the Teraflex leveling kit. Plus the Teraflex kit would balance out the front and rear heights.

Just wondering what others have done or think.

Thanks

The TF leveling kit is all you need to clear those tires and it will correct the front rake in the JK.

I'm running the TF Leveing kit with Stock 32" GY Wranglers. I think my jeep now looks like it should have from the factory. The Rake is mostly gone. Ride is stock and looks good. $129 well spent.

Thanks and it looks great. Did you have any problems installing it?

I ran that kit for several months with the stock (32") BFG M/T's. I'm now running 285/70 R17 on Pro Comp wheels. It looked great with the 32" tires.

No real problems. I did it by myself. You don't need a spring compressor, but if you have access to one the job will be much easier. You will also need 18mm socket and wrench, 19mm wrench, jack stands and a floor jack. Take a look at the instructions on TF's website HERE.

Why not get the teraflex 1" leveling kit with just the front spacers for $39.99? I'm thinking about removing my RC BB and going with this kit for now so my roll center / geometry will be closer to stock. Next year I would like to run the AEV 3.5 Nth degree with 35's. I don't see the need to add spacers to the rear to level the Jeep with their $129.00 kit. Just add the 1" spacers to the front and it'll take about 45 minutes.

Good point. I just realized they had the front only kit. I might want the additional 1" of rear lift the leveling kit gives you though.

Are these poly spacers in the TF leveling kit?

Yes poly spacers. 4 - 1" front spacers (two per side stacked), 2 1" rear spacers, and longer links for the front.

32" tires w/2.5" BB.

Either way you go it will look fine.

I agree either way is fine. The RC 2.5" kit also levels it lifts 2.5" in the front and 2" in the rear.


Before lift



After lift

With the TF leveling kit do you need shock extensions?

Old thread but, on TF site they say you need spaces to run the stock wheels? Anyone know why?
