Looking for a bit of feedback. I have a 2019 MOAB and like my past JKU (Teraflex leveling kit) I want a bit of lift. I purchased the Mopar 2” lift, however after reading some review I was hesitant as most were getting 3.5”. Being a MOAB, it has the Rubcon suspension so I thought I would get the 2” as advertised. The lift is more for looks as I spend more of my time in snow than going off road.

So I had the lift installed along with Rock Krawler: spring pads, adjustable F/R track bars, adjustable LCAs and Fox steering stabilizer. My caster is +5.86/+6.06 after the alignment.

My 2” lift ended up being a 3 ½” to 4” which is too much for my daily driver. Additionally, I also installed 315/70R17 which equates to a 32” step to get inside.

I do not want to remove all the parts but know I need to remove the coils to drop it to a reasonable height (to me). I am looking to go back to the OEM (Rubcon) springs and add the Teraflex 1.5” spacer kit and keep all the other components installed. I added some details below and photos.

Note the sequence of install was MOAB with 285/70R17, then lift installed, then 315/70R17 installed (note that they do rub on the LCAs and I have SpiderTRAX spacers ordered).

So the question is can I remove the Mopar 2” lift coils and reinstall original coils with the Teraflex spacer kit and keep all the other components. I am sure an alignment would be needed again.

Put steel aftermarket front and rear bumpers on and it will likely bring you down 1/2" and look pretty good with the 315's.

Or put 37" on it but that opens up other upgrades you like will want.

I used the Accutune Comfort Ride springs after the Mopar lift. It dropped about 1 inch.

What exactly is your concern? Those springs are soft. Throw a bumper and a winch on with a tool kit and you'll lose an inch at least ...

Think he said he got 3.5-4 lift. I know mine was 3.5 - 3 7/8. I used the Accutune springs to drop it.
He can use the Teraflex spacers and stock springs, but will have a soft ride on the stock springs.

I am pulling off my Mopar lift springs and installing the OEM ones with the Teraflex ST1 level kit. I have a 2019 MOAB. I am planning to add a winch and the rear steel bumper, so I was going to go up a bit on the springs. I thought being a MOAB it had the Rubicon springs F/R but according to this table it does not. My OEM (came with vehicle) are FD/FP 659/660 and RD/RP 588/589. I was going to go with the FD/FP 660/661 and RD/RP 591/592.

As for removing the rest of the parts (shocks, arm-stabilizers, LCA) I will wait to see how thing line up.

My question is do the springs as ordered need to go on a specific side? In other words can I use my existing OEM spring FP 660 on my FD side? I will be reusing my Rock Krawler pads.

Doug, Where did you end up on your teraflex spacer project? I have the exact situation, I installed the 2" sport from Rancho on my Moab and it is way higher than 2". I also am thinking about the stock springs with spacers and leaving the rest of the parts as is. I'm not sure if I should use a 2" spacer kit or a 2.5" spacer kit.
