Found someone selling Mopar 2” Lift near me. Mopar Product # 7707 2396 AB -001

I own a 4 door Sahara Unlimited. Is there any way I can find out if this lift is compatible with my Jeep? Do they have different specific lifts for the 4 door vs. the 2 door?
There are specific kits for 2 and 4 doors and for the different engines. If you look up the Jeep Performance Parts catalogues it’s easy to find out, but simply googling it does the trick too.

So has Mopar finally fixed the bowing issue? I'm trying to figure out if this is worth getting for my 2 door rubi or not...

Thanks!

Just spend 30 bucks on Rock Krawler pads. Mopar replaced my originals and they were good for awhile, but the bow came back as the driver side pad crushed. It still never rubbed the bump stop. My understanding is that Mopar has a later part # for the spring pad that is improved. But I simply bought the Rock Krawler pads and the driver side spring is much more straight. Much better now.

Overall, if I were doing the lift again I would stick with the Mopar. The ride and shocks are outstanding. I wouldn't want it to be any different.

2019 unlimited sport
Just got a new 2019 unlimited sport. Dealer installed 2 inch Mopar lift, 35 inch tires. After a week of driving Im getting a really good pull to the left at highway speeds and vibrations through the steering wheel also at highway speeds. Upon looking at the suspension I found on the driver side, bowing, a crushed coil pad, coil touching the sway bar link I believe it’s called. When comparing it to the passenger side it looks messed up. Passenger side shows no signs of anything wrong. I will attach pictures. I took the Jeep to the dealership today and am awaiting a diagnostic.

It'll probalby perform fine if not touching the bump stop, but I'd highly recommend the Rock Krawler spring correction pads. They are about 40 bucks and they'll set them right. I ran 36k on the Mopar lift. I had the original lift's pads replaced with what I think was a revised version and that helped a little, but as they crushed, the driver side spring came close to the bump stop again. It never rubbed or hit it and I did a lot of off-roading. But I wanted to see what the RK pads would do. They made it straighter than ever. It'll never be perfect, as some bow is normal, but they are really good now. Well worth the investment.

I can't speak to the other issues, as mine doesn't exhibit them. First think I'd check is the alignment. Do you have a stock or aftermarket steering dampener? Some Fox 2.0 dampeners cause some slight pull to the right, too. I'd also get the steering box TSB done, as pulling to one side is a symptom, as well.

Overall, I'm very happy with this lift. It rides better than any other I've felt, both on and off road.

Looking at your pics, it almost looks like the spring is bowed to where it is rubbing the sway bar end link. Is that true, or just the angle of the picture giving an illusion? That doesn't look right to me. Some installers have either installed front springs on the wrong side or failed to set them properly in the pad. Your pad is crushed more than either of mine, original or Mopar replacements were. That is certainly worth closer investigation. Mine bowed toward the tire, not toward the front.

thanks for the insight Dan! The spring is touching the Sway bar end link. The steering dampener is stock, I am interested in upgrading to the fox one, whether the dealership does it to help with the issue or if I have to do it myself. I will keep you posted on the outcome from the dealer. Will probably get info Monday

I've got the Fox 2.0 and love it. I think it pulls ever so slightly to the right, but it is slight enough that I might be mistaking it for the crown in the road, too. I had the steering shimmy when my stock dampener failed. The Fox killed that problem dead. I would definitely look at the spring part numbers to make sure they got them on the correct sides, then make sure they seated properly in the pads. The Rock Krawler pads are almost dummy proof for seating the springs, if they are on the correct side.

I second the RK pads. I never installed the OEM pads that came with the kit. A milk carton looks more rigid than that. Installed the RK pads from the get go, never had any bowing or any other issues others see.
2019 Sport JLU here too.
I did install the Jeep Performance Fox steering stabilizer as the factory one felt a little iffy even on 33s (which is what I ended up keeping). The part no is 77072360. No pulling to either side.
Also installed an RK trackbar with the lift, highly recommended.
