Shocks with RC 2" lift kit.

So I recently installed RC 2" lift on my 06 commander but the rear is still a little bit lower than the front. Are there any specific rear shocks you can recommended or rear coil spring?!

Spacciatore;

Welcome to the forum; Please click on the following link and reply accordingly;

Now to answer your question, I'm running the 2 inch RC lift as well and I had a similar problem when mine was first installed;

I added Bilstein 5100 rear shocks (Part # 33-225807) and a new set of Hemi-rated rear coil springs - (JustForJeeps Part #'s 52124213AA & 52124214AA)

I have the 4.7L V-8, so the Hemi-rated rear coil springs are slightly heavier then the stock springs.

Rusty's used to sell rear coil springs that were specifically designed to raise the rear an inch or 2 but I'm fairly certain they don't make them any longer, so, they are hard to come by.

The way that I'm set up now, I sit perfectly level.

I agree. Is there not a level kit that is 100% level all the time?

If you're looking to bring the rear up, I'd recommend going for Monroe Load Levellers. Their model number 58643 is for an F150, but with a couple washers up top it fits perfectly on a lifted XK and will give you a little extra lift in the rear. With mine on I actually have a bit of a front rake.

Almost any aftermarket shocks you put on will be an improvement over the beat-up factory shocks, so, I don't think you have anything to worry about.
