Quardralift very noise while lowering to park.

Re: Quardralift very noise while lowering to park.

Do you have an audio or video file to listen to? Normal is a relative term so we need to hear what loud/noisy means to you.
My 2013 doesn't seem loud or noisy to me at all.

Re: What's the highest quality leveling kit for a Wrangler JK?

Level or Lift? Nobody I know levels a Wrangler. A budget boost is just that - cheap not high quality to say the least. What is your end goal/intended purpose for your Jeep?
