I'm Ryan from ExtremeTerrain.com, and this is my review of the Teraflex Performance leveling kit fitting all 2007 to 2016 JKs. There are two separate kits available for two door and four door Wranglers, so make sure you get the right one for your Jeep. Our JKs come out of the factory with a little bit of a natural rake. That means that the front of the Jeep is slightly lower than the rear. I've heard a lot of reasons for why Jeep does that, but the bottom line is a lot of us don't like the look. If you're looking to level out the stance of your Jeep, there are a few different ways you can go about it. Most lift kits will also level the stance, but if you're somebody who doesn't have the need for that additional height, doesn't want to run larger tires and doesn't want to add all those additional parts to your vehicle, a leveling kit is designed to do the trick. Once you've decided that a leveling kit is right for your build, there are still a couple of options to consider. Most people will go with a coil spring spacer leveling kit because they're really inexpensive, and they'll get the job done. If you're somebody who has some additional weight on your vehicle like extra armor, heavy bumpers, a large spare tire or even a winch, you might still get some sag out of those factory springs. That's where a kit like this comes in. This Performance leveling kit does the same thing as a coil spring spacer leveling kit, but it does it with springs. This kit will include everything you need to level out the stance of your Jeep, and it'll allow you to run a slightly larger tire. However, it's important to remember that this is not a lift kit designed to add clearance. It is a leveling kit designed to level out your ride. The front springs will provide two inches of lift and the rears will provide one inch, again to counteract that factory rake. The kit includes these new rear sway bar end links that are longer than the factory ones. That allows you to move the factory rear links to the front, and you'll have everything you need to get the job done. The benefit to a leveling kit over a larger lift kit, if you don't need the additional performance from the lift kit, is that this doesn't have all of the additional parts necessary for a larger lift. When you do a larger lift, you're looking at geometry correction, longer brake lines, shocks, track bar relocation brackets, all of those additional components that get more expensive and make the installation more difficult. This kit is designed to do a couple of things and it does them really well. This will level out the ride of your Jeep, and it'll hold up weight of additional modifications a lot better than those factory springs will. Even though this is only a leveling kit, you will have to go through a lot of the same steps to get it installed as you would with a full-blown lift kit. The first step in the process is to suspend the Jeep by the frame so that you can remove or loosen everything that keeps the axles from completely drooping. In this installation, that's going to be the sway bar, end links, track bars, lower shock bolts, front driveshaft, and all of the brake line retention brackets. Once all those components are removed or loosened, you can then sag the axle completely down and the old springs will fall right out. You can then pop the new lift springs in place and reinstall all of those components in the reverse order. The bolts that usually give me the most trouble going back in after doing suspension work like this are the front and rear track bar bolts. What I always like to do is finish the rest of the suspension work, put the tires back on the Jeep and get it sitting under its own weight on the ground. For the front track bar bolt, you can have somebody sit in the vehicle and turn the steering wheel back and forth which will help to align those bolt holes. In the back, you can have somebody just push on the Jeep to move it around and align the bolt holes that way. It'll make it much easier than trying to do it up in the air and trying to push the axle back and forth. The whole installation of this leveling kit should take you about four hours. You won't need any specialty tools, just some metric sockets and open end wrenches. If you do have access to a lift and to air tools or even an electric impact, it'll definitely speed things along. There are different kits out there that'll give you more lift than this one will for right around the same cost, but that's just for the springs. When you go up in height, you have to start adding components like shocks and different brackets, so the cost will definitely increase. If you've added some heavy mods or armor to your Jeep and you want to get rid of that factory rake, I would suggest going with this leveling kit. It's a complete kit that's fairly easy to install, and it's a pretty good value. That's my review of the Teraflex Performance leveling kit fitting all 2007 to 2016 JKs that you can find right here at extremeterrain.com.
