        Will stock length shocks work with this product or are the shocks that come with this product longer?

        • Stock shocks are not recommended for use with the Rough Country 2 in. Suspension Lift Kit. A shock, that is designed to accept a 2in lift should be used, such as those included with the kit.

        cant get front coils back in do i need a coil spring compressor??

        • Thank you for your question! You would need to sag the axle enough to fit them in, or a spring compressor would do the job.

        Helpful (4)

        Does the installation of this kit require any other modifications such as longer control arms, or steering components? Or will an alignment with some extra toe bring the suspension geometry back to standard?

        • Hello! This kit comes with everything that you would need to install it! There is nothing that is required that is missing from this kit.

        What is the advantage of getting a kit with springs as opposed to this one without.

        • This Rough Country 2 in. Suspension Lift Kit includes coils spacers and new shocks. New coil springs would guarantee a fresh spring rate, possibly a new spring rate should you choose and better performance out of your Jeep.

        • You will not need to change your driveshaft or gear ratio for this lift.

            Awesome Lift and Ride Quality!

            My stock rear shocks slid off the bushings, so instead of getting stock OEM suspension parts, I bought this lift. Made the ride quality absolutely amazing!

            Missing parts

            Daughter and son in law got this kit for me for my birthday in april. Did not come with instructions but no big deal as I have been working on vehicles for 30 years. But I also just realised that kit also did not come with the 2 brackets in the picture which I am thinking is for tracking bar.

            Great starter lift kit, simple install

            Just what I was looking for to give my T.J. the boost/look I wanted. Kit comes with everything you’ll need but recommend replacing all four bump stops, so you’ll need to purchase those separately. Overall pretty easy install, took us about 3.5 hrs with a extra set of hands, a impact air wrench and auto lift. Realigning the front/back track bars was the most challenging aspect and a ratchet strap is a must. Obviously not a high end lift, but for the price it’ll improve the look of your Jeep and stiffen up the ride. Happy with my purchase.

            Great value, great look and great ride!

            This lift made my 1999 wrangler sit up just right and the new shocks made the ride a lot tighter. I would recommend this to anyone. The installation wasn't bad but it did take me 6 hours. Product states that it will allow 31" tires but it wasn't until I started reading the questions that it explained that you must have aftermarket rims with a 3.75" backspacing. That is when the homework began because most rims are advertised with off-set.

            Just the ticket

            I was looking for a lift that gave me close to the stock ride and some lift. This did the trick, the shocks work great and looks good with the larger rubber underneath.

            Budget Lift

            This is a great combo that gives my wife's new toy just the right attitude! It levels it out perfectly and doesn't put the front end up higher than the rear. The shocks made it ride much better too, so she's real happy about that. I don't get around as well as I used to, so I had them installed, but the guy said it was a piece of cake.

            Great so far

            Easy installation if the Jeep cooperates. Ran us about six hours but that included one sheared off, upper rear shock bolt and a problemsome nut on a sway bar linkage. Ended up putting in a new sway bar link, and took the tacked in but off for the rear bolt and put a new one in. If not for the problems above, would have been a 3 - 4 hour install. So far the ride is nice and no noticeable issues. The extra height looks great and the spacers weren’t a problem with the stock springs.

            Love it!

            Got the lift on with no problems. No spring compressor needed. Check the bump stops. You will need new ones. Only thing that slowed me down was my factory bump stops were rotten. Had to order them, but was theresame day. So I had to wait 2 hours for them to arrive from O'Reilly. If you prep by buying new bumps stops the entire install is a couple hours.

            2" lift kit

            Had one assistant who had no fear, said it is just nuts and bolts, righty tighty - lefty loosey. Everything fit, had to use a hammer on bottom of back shocks, they were a little tight going into factory bracket. Did not need to use strut spring compressor although had one just in case. If a 63 and 65 year old can do it, so can you!
