Geography in Action says:

I'm assuming that replacing the front drive-shaft is necessary with an automatic? Also, 17×9 steel wheels are fine with 33s on this? Thank you.

JonGCruz says:

Another video of lift kit missing important information.
1- No mention of Swaybar links replacement for longer ones
2- Nothing about replacing the rear track bar for an adjustable one
3- Nothing about alignment after install
4- Nothing about control arms extender
Etc, etc, etc

Will this cause a death wobble?

Nathan ThreeLeaf says:

How would you get coil bind in this scenario? I don't see a good reason why your coils would now touch more than usual. It seems like there would be no change at all to that. Can someone elaborate a bit on that?

Juan Mendoza says:

I put this kit on and a lot of light turned on on my dash

Mario C says:

If I get this budget leveling kit but also want to replace my oem shocks, do you recommend shocks that are the same size of stock shocks or longer ones? Thank you

Thi Lam says:

Can you add new coils afterwards? As long as it’s meant for a 2.5 inch lift? Or do you have to remove the bump stops all together?

Jet fuel says:

That last part was wrong. Don’t keep the original stock front sway bar link, you have to replace the front ones with the rear. I did didnt do that on my 2.5” lift and my front sway bar flip backwards due to the sway bar link being too short.

Ronaldo says:

What if I run 35s but get cut fenders. Would I get enough up travel ?

sid drake says:

chrome sockets used with impacts and I saw a claw hammer!!! holy crap, but good information none the less

Installed this on my unlimited 2016
Mine was done by a garage who specialized in jeep .. they do tons of jeep every day including engine hemi mod and full suspension, differential jobs.. they know their stuff.

After they done the budget boost, i noticed they did not installed any brake line bracket. They told me that the brake line bracket will do more damage…so they said they just gona change the line configuration a little bit to allow more flexibility.. i checked under and based on the dust i did not notice any changes to the brake line route..

I hope the guy who did my jeep know what he was doing.

I hope that it is true, we dont need the brake line bracket.

Kenneth Wang says:

Very nice guide, thanks! I was wondering if it was easy for you guys to pull the springs off without a spring compressor? Also, do I need to get an alignment after the install?
