Thanks!
I just put it on a few weeks ago and have taken it wheeling a few times. I absolutely love it. I was looking into the RRO lift but it didn't make any sense to use the stock suspension. I got it for the same price as the RRO kit thru summit racing. I stuffed 33's on it but they are too big. I've got a buddy who owns a custom jeep shop that's gonna make 1" spacers for a little added clearance for the bigger tires. It'll be absolutely perfect after that's done! I highly recommend the Eibach setup, especially over the RRO kit that uses stock parts, don't know how that kit got so popular!

I hear the all terrain kit rides really stiff. Does it. also people who off road usually want to lift the back more than .5". You could throw some RRO trim packers on there. I could sell you mine here in a few weeks bc I bought Icon Coilovers. If you make spacers for the back you probably wouldn't want to make them more than .5" thick bc the geometry of the back gives you almost twice the lift at the wheel of the thickness of the spacer. there are poly tj spacers alot of people have been using on the wk2 which work but I've only seen .75" poly spacers. The .5" I saw on ebay were steel and I don't think you would want to use them as the poly spacers have to stretch a bit to fit over the spring isolators. the .75" poly spacers might raise the back more than you want.

Its a TAD bit stiffer than stock but its barely noticable to me... its a little "sharper" over cracks and small bumps in the road but its really not too noticable. The roads here in Castle Rock, CO are terrible and its still a nice ride... on the freeway, its the same as stock if not better. Barely hear any hum from the tires even!

A guy Ive talked to back in AZ has a '14 was telling me about the .75" spacers made for a TJ that'll fit the WK2. I don't know much about doing these kinds of little mods so I'm getting advice from anywhere before I do it haha! Don't know anything about the trim packers. What are those all about?

Didn't know spacers basically double the height tho. Good to know! 1" might be way too much then. Was told by the friend with the jeep shop that there's plenty of room to go up a bit more in regards to the CV joints. I really wanna keep the bigger tires but am tired of the rubbing off road haha.

Also, are the spacers vehicle specific? Spring specific? Or is it just diameter size that counts?

Also, could those TJ spacers be used in the front? I still want it to sit level...

You cannot use TJ spacers on the front. The trim packers are vehicle specific and designed for our WK2s. the RRO trim packers are only 3/16" thick but they say they add 3/8" lift to the vehicle. They are about as thick as you can go and still utilize the upper mounting bolts. They sell them fore about 41 to 42 and 10 or 15 shipping. I will be able to sell them to you in a few weeks when My Icon Coilovers get here bc I wont need the spacers any more. Did you search for .5" poly TJ spacers? that is what you need, unless you went with .75" which will give you a total of approximately 2" lift in back(.5" springs and 1.5" TJ Spacers). Would probably look really nice actually. I can even sell you the spacers through ebay and can put them up now so you can buy them. I'll make a listing and then send you the link. I will put them up for a competitive price. I'm not even sure you can buy two of these at a time. They are the same ones I've heard of a few other people using without problems, so I bought the same ones.

Great! Was mailed this morning. For the front, the RRO Trim Packers probably won't give you as much as you need. You have basically two options that I can think of which will probably work:

One: Tuff Country Leveling kit has two parts, the strut spacer and preload spacer. You can buy the kit here:

Tuff Country Leveling Kits 42006 | eBay

and use only the preload spacer which should give you more than enough lift and sell the strut spacers on ebay. These preload spacers may give you too much lift though, like 1.5" and if you already have 2" that will likely be too much lift. I would consider cutting them down to .7" thick which should give you another 1" of lift. If you already got two inches I wouldn'r cut them longer than .75". which should give you a total of just over 3" of lift in front.

Option two: would be to replace the Eibach struts with Bilstein 5100 adjustables and to get the right setting you would lay the Eibach strut next to the Bilstein 5100 and make the distance on the bilstein from the top of the shaft to the spring seat about .75" (at most) longer than on the eibach strut for another 1" or so. These can be ordered through Kolak at Kolak@aol.com. He will send you a paypal invoice. He offers very competitive pricing.

Re: Eibach Allterrain Lift Kit WK2

I have had this lift on my jeep for about 8 months now.. and have hated the vehicle since doing it.. the hard ride i could life with (it's like a brick) but i have weird driveline vibration ever since i put it in. especially at 60-65.. tires rebalanced and had the thing re-aligned 3 times and even watched the last guy do it to make sure it was dead on. I am told it's cause the front is lifted too high and putting a bad angle on the CV's..

Was just curious if anyone else has had the same issue?

P.S. think i found my issue finally.. i never bothered to measure my ride height before.. because.. you put it on and it works rigtht? and winter.. i'm sitting 3/4" higher on the passenger side than the drivers.. so looks like i might have got some bad parts. Will be ordering the bilstein to get it fixed up..
