Teraflex leveling kit

Is anyone running this? It says it will lift the front 2 inches and the rear 1 inch. My questions is will it need an alignment. My stock tires are about done for and I am looking at 33's, maybe when the 33's wear out I can aford my 3.5 RE lift. Will this work untill then?

Its not that it will knock your alignment out, but it will move your steering wheel a little off center. 15MM wrench, a beer, and a friend and you'll have it re-centered in no time flat.

For 33s I wouldn't change your toe settings, which is about the only thing you can change in terms of alignment with the stock setup. Some people like to toe it in a little with 35s, with 33s keep it at the stock layout.

If you have a bunch of miles it might not be a bad idea to check the toe either way, a number of things can knock it out of whack.

That's a good kit, you should also check out the 1.75" BB from Rock Krawler while you're looking. The good thing about budget boosts is that they hold their value very well. Ha ha!

I have the Teraflex leveling kit and my front end was sagging that bad, the kit actually centered the steering wheel for me, I didn't have to touch the draglink at all. If you get it, make sure to unbolt the brake lines in back from the frame, they wont allow you to drop the axle enough to get the spring in with the spacer if you don't. Very easy to install though.

I'm running it now, and if I remember correctly, I didn't need an alignment afterward.

This was from when I just first put it on with a set of 33.5" Toyo's

Alignment won't be necessary, but you may need wheel spacers if you're going to run 33's. I believe Merlin is running spacers on his rig.

I didn't need an alignment. Hell, I didn't even need to adjust my steering wheel or speedometer.
