Jeep Wrangler JK Long-Travel Leveling Kit - Lift & LevelPosted in How To on September 1, 2007 0) (
Many stock Wrangler JKs tend to sit lower in the front, which not only looks awkward but can also affect off-road performance. One method of leveling the Jeep Wrangler JK while also increasing tire size and suspension travel is to install the long-travel leveling kit from Currie Enterprises. It's a great system for the average owner with the everyday JK Wrangler. It will allow you to fit a set of 33x12.50 tires and longer-travel shocks and will also improve on- and off-road handling characteristics.
The Currie long-travel leveling system uses the bare minimum of components to achieve a 2-inch increase in suspension travel. Leveling components include 2-1/4-inch, billet-aluminum front spring spacers, rear coil-spring retainers, extended front and rear sway-bar links, extended steel-braided brake lines, and all of the necessary hardware. Front and rear kits are offered separately to meet a variety of customer needs. Currie Enterprises recommends use of either Rancho RS9000XL or Walker Evans shocks with the leveling system and can provide units with the proper extended/collapsed lengths and valving for the best on- and off-road ride quality.
We hung around the Currie Enterprises facility in Anaheim, California, for an afternoon to get a glimpse of the new long-travel leveling system. John Currie walked us through an installation of the system on an '07 X-model Wrangler, which also received a set of 32-inch JK Rubicon tires and wheels.
