Sorry must have missed this one! On a Rubicon, with the 2.5" kit you'd probably see about a 3" increase in the rear and a 3.5" increase in the front, and with the 3.5" about a 4" increase in the rear and 4.5 in the front. We would definitely suggest a new set of shocks that is designed to work specifically with the amount of lift you intend on going with for best results!
Thanks.. 2.5 inch kit will be more than sufficient for my needs.. :)

Yes all of our spring rates are published on our website if you go to the individual listing for the springs themselves! We recommend using either the Fox 2.0 performance series shocks for a daily driver/weekend warrior build, or the Falcon 3.3's if you're somebody looking for more performance and likes to drive a little bit more aggressive.
I would echo that Fox 2.0 is slightly firmer than stock and are perfect for daily driving. I did try Falcons non-adjustable and they were much harsher. Falcons 3.3 are adjustable, can they be tuned to match Fox 2.0 performance? I like having adjustability for those days when I am either loaded or towing.

Awesome 3.5 it is. Are you guys still behind on orders? I want to just go full premium 3.5.
Overland+ and Premium kits are shipping out about 3 weeks after the order date in order for us to keep up with high order volume at this time, however RideRight+ kits can go out much sooner! Basically we've been letting all customers know we're shipping on a first-come-first-serve basis at the moment, so definitely get your order in that way you're guaranteed to go in the next batch! We always offer 100% refunds if you want to cancel the order before it's shipped!

The Falcons can definitely be tuned to a nice daily driver style firmness, however whether or not its comparable to the Fox 2.0 exactly I wouldn't be able to say for sure.

Does this kit level the truck or is there some rake left? Apologies if you already answered this. I didn’t see it reading thru the thread. In pics, the 3.5 seems pretty level but the 2.5 appears to have some rake. I would like to go to something like your kit next. I currently have a rubicon takeoff suspension on an overland with a 1 inch spacer in the front. So it’s not completely level but would like to do that in the future.

The kit keeps some of the factory rake, but not all, and of course the amount of rake is also dependent on things like steel bumpers, winches etc. Since these are still trucks we wanted to keep the functionality of the bed so you're still able to haul and tow, but like I said the rake is less than factory. I'll include a side shot of a JT lifted with our Premium kit, which uses the same springs, so you can get a better feel for the stance. :like:

Happy to hear! It will be worth it ;) The Right Ride+ kit is fully upgradeable if you're looking for a good place to start, and we are currently offering Affirm for payments if you're interested!

Ordered the 2.5" / Right ride+ with the fox 2.0 shocks over the phone an hour or so ago! Thanks for the help and good information. I am excited about this and blame it all on a mid life crisis. I plan on running 37's with 0 offset 4.75" backspacing wheels. This will be used on a Sport S diesel and I do not plan on off-roading this one... I have my TJ for that.

Model Y Performance. Diesel JT hopefully soon
This is definitely the most complete "base" kit on the market to properly lift and align the JT! Nice that you can add on extra control arms later. I have the 2.5" fronts and 3.5" rear springs on my JTR w/ Falcon SP2 3.3's and love it. 37's on AEV Borah's and no rubbing at all. Just remember to get a minimum 3" bump stop front and rear.

So, since I ordered the suspension kit and have a pending self install. What size wrenches and sockets will I need that aren't usually in a typical diy tool collection? Like, a 24mm socket or wrench or both....seems I've heard that size was needed.

Basic hand tools should be sufficient, just make sure you have the correct sized wrench for the jam nuts and you should be good to go! The large jam nuts will need a 46mm wrench
