Hello,

I was wondering what length shock you recommend for your leveling kit? When I look at your bill of materials, it states that the springs are 2.5”, maybe I’m misunderstanding that? Just wondering if you recommend 0-1.5” shocks or 2”-3” shocks.

Thanks!

No idea, but in that time I decided to go with the Mopar lift instead. Bummer because I wanted this leveling kit.

Hey Guys!

I apologize, for some reason when things are posted here I don't receive any sort of notification. The leveling kit does use a spring that provides about 1.5" of lift on the JT, it's just slightly confusing in the bill of materials because without clicking on the spring all you see is the part of the product name that lists the spring height on the JK. Shock extensions or springs rated for 1-2" of lift will work perfectly fine with this kit!

I’ve have an 1.5” level kit on mine for about a year, w/ stock shocks. No issues at all, with some moderate off roading .

Hi @Clayton Off Road
Do you guys know of any fit issues with your 1.5 leveling kit I already have installed and the steer smarts drag link with attenuator?

Happy to hear! Usually with any sort of drag link flip a track bar relocation bracket is necessary for best results, other than that I don't see why you shouldn't be able to make it work!
