Is there anyone is still a current member that has installed one of the Terraflex lifts on their XK? Or a thread that's not 7 years old with pics and details I can go to?

Most review I've seen took RC at the bottom of quality. I would consider Zone lift
For full suspension systems on other vehicles, yes. For XK budget boost spacer lifts that is not the case... RC spacer quality is good and easily the best bang for the buck for these vehicles.

For full suspension systems on these vehicles, Zone is bottom quality. It's actually a re-branded BDS that does not achieve the full lift height and has low brackets... Superlift is the only good full-suspension system.

Most people go the middle route and get lift springs with new shocks for less lift but less than half the cost of the Superlift.

Yeah, I was mistaken when I was looking at the terraflex kits. I saw a kit similar to the OME 3" lift, but it was for the WK I think. I'm looking for the best cost effective 3" lift. I don't want anything taller than that

idk

Yeah I know, but i thought maybe they made different kits because of the weight difference. On further investigation, the WK kits is also a spacer lift. So idk what i saw, it was just a generic list of what they offer, not vehicle specific....:killtard: So anyyyyway, like i said, i'm just looking for the best way to build my XK to a quality 3" lift. Maybe OME 2" springs and 5100s up front? not sure in the back except 3" springs?? noob

OME HD lifts the front ~3" and levels it with the rear on most vehicles.

If you need more in the front you can run bilstein 5100's on their lowest (.75") setting or strut plates for ~.5" lift

Hey Will,​

I was at maxed out up front at 23" hub to fender, with OME HD springs/struts + 3/8" spacer. It sounds as if you dont want to go quite as high, to keep stress off the front cv's, tie rods, etc., so I suggest you go with the OME HD springs. It seems like the Bilstien 5100 adjustables are cheaper then OME struts, with the ability to bump up lift height if you need any extra. As for the rear, OME HD springs seem to match the front HD setup, and you could go with Bilstien 5125's, OME, or Monroe load levelers (OEM or F-150). OEM sized load levelers net ~3/4" of lift, whereas the F-150 version nets ~ 1.5" of lift. Just be sure to follow the instruction in Matt's thread about putting some tape to cover the dust covers, which helps hold off the eventual squeak when dirt gets in there.

Thx Ross. Now, I know I'm bouncing around here, but I read that the RR spacer lift actually lift 3" or so in the front. IS that right, and had anyone used RR's other suspension components like shocks, struts, UCA?
