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.

The springs the Jeep should have come with.
Great ride! This is how the Jeep should ride from the factory. Running 285/75/17 falken at3 with zero rubbing off-road. Highly recommendedHelpful (4)

The product was extremely easy to install as it was designed very well. I the quality of the springs seams to be much better than my OEM. The only disappointment with the springs is that I got 1.5" lift in front and about nothing in back. I plan on putting a .75" spacer on the rear. The ride in my book is superior to stock suspension. No more diving or lifting when braking and accelerating. Also much more controllable at highway speeds on windy days.Helpful (2)

Works better than I expected.
I have Steel front and rear bumpers l, along with steel rock rails. With the added weight this kit brought my front end up 2.25 inches and the rear up an inch. Couldn’t be happier with the end results from this kit. Super easy install as well.Helpful (0)

Performs as advertised
Great leveling kit and exceeded my expectations. Actually leveled my JK Rubicon 2 door and added about 1.5" My fear was the front would be higher that the rear -- not the case with this kit! Very professional kit and the ride is very similar to stock Rubicon springs. Maybe sightly more muscular in a positive away. Very satisfied Thank youHelpful (2)

I installed this kit when I installed the Rubicon Express Extreme Duty Mono-Tube es shocks. I’m happy with the ride (no more barrel roll feeling like the stock springs). It raised my JK 2 inches the front an 1 ¼ inch in the back The kit is reasonably price and fit my 2007 JK without having to modify anything. Installation is easy and the instructions are clear. As always with Extreme Terrain the shipping was quick and tracking my package was easy.Helpful (0)

Put this on My Wife's Jeep. She is Vertically Challenged. So, I need a lift that would allow me to run Heavy Front and back bumper and 33 tires with out needing a ladder. Got little over 1-inch lift. Sets level and looks great. And wife is happy. HAPPY WIFE, HAPPY LIFE.Helpful (3)

Can I pair these coil springs with the Fox 2.0 Performance Series IFP Shocks for 1.5in - 3.5in lift?
Yes, the Teraflex Performance Leveling Kit will work Fox 2.0 Performance shocks for 1.5-3.5 in lift.
Will installing this kit affect the shifting perfomance if you have a manual transmission? Is any modification needed because of the body being slightly lifted?
Twould not have an effect on your shifter since this is not lifting the body off the frame or dropping the transfer case.
I read that this kit requires adjustable ball joints to be able to complete an alignment after install; is this the case? I am looking at adding these shocks at the same time; will they improve handling and body roll? Teraflex Falcon Series 2.1 Monotube Front Rear Shocks for 0-2 in. Lift (07-18 Wrangler JK)
The Teraflex Performance Leveling Kit typically do not require adjustable ball joints to achieve a proper alignment, however we have seen some Wranglers that did require this.
Will this leveling kit support the weight of a roof top tent and aftermarket bumpers and winch?
Yes these will safely support that weight, however as for whether that weight will make your Jeep sag a little is another story. Keep in mind it takes a lot to make a Jeep sag so it still is not likely, but if you see this being an issue we suggest to speak with a customer service agent here at Extreme Terrain.
Will falcon 3.3 shocks work with this..
Yes, Falcon shocks rated for 2" of lift in the front and 1" in the rear will be compatible with theTeraflex Performance Leveling Kit. We offer 3.3 shocks rated for 0-2" of lift here: https://www.extremeterrain.com/teraflex-falcon-33-adjustable-piggyback-front-rear-shocks-0-2-in-0717.html.
The kit will give you 1" inch of lift in the rear and 2" inches in the front. Especially if you have the lighter stock bumpers.
