I just picked up the Pro Comp Comfort Ride Tuned 2.5" Coil Lift with 6-way adjustable monotube design MX6 shocks. I am documenting the kit and install on this thread to provide others with facts. I have done many searches for this kit with no information as of yet. I thought it would help to give photos and thoughts for the general community. I realize ther are other 2.5" coil lifts on the market, but I wanted to see how this performes... "Don't knock it till you try it".
Here is the Kit:
- Aluminum front bumpstop spacers
- rear bumpstop spacers
- Rear trackbar relocation bracket & re-enforcement brace
- Front sway bar drop brackets
- lift springs
- adjustable monotube shocks
- Required Hardware pack
- Full instructions & many stickers
As an overview, the kit is shipped in 4 separate boxes. One box each for the rear springs, front springs, 4 shocks and the last box contains all the brackets, bumpstops, hardware and instructions; he kit is packaged well. There are more than enough stickers and decals included for every toolbox you have.
All 4 springs arrive with light grey paint without a blemish. The MX6 shocks are shipped in the compressed state and include a black rubber boot with strap. The brackets are all painted black and the front bumpstops were simple cast aluminum. The only blemish I found was a small paint chip missing on one of the corners of a bracket, not a problem at all. The kit comes with multiple pouches of hardware with contents dedicated to each part of the install. There was no missing hardware. Lastly 1 print copy of install instructions are included along with the usual end-user disclaimer notice.
The instructions remain quite basic with only a few schematic diagrams, however, I do not forsee any problems as everything seems very strait forward. If you would like a PDF copy of the installation intructions please PM me and I will send you the link.
A few things you will need before you complete the install on your own:
1 - Small tube of Loctite
2 - Assortment of metal Drill Bits including at minimum a 3/8" metal-purpose bit.
3 - Electric drill (corded or cordless)
4 - Floor Jack
5 - Torque Wrench
6 - Work Light (Optional)
Procedure: FRONT END
Park in a flat, level, area; secure the Jeep on jackstands and keep the jack under the front axel and remove the fron wheels. Be sure to set parking break and block the rear wheels.
If you have an automatic transmission, remove the 3 - 18mm bolts that secure the transmission skid plate.
Remove the lower sway bar links, the upper shock mounting nuts and the lower shock mount bolt. The shocks may be set aside since they will be replaced later by the shocks in the kit.
Remove the front track bar bolt connected to the front axle , secure the track bar out of the way for the time being. Also be sure unbolt the brake like bracket from the frame for now.
