    I've got the same mounts in my EVO kit. In the event that you don't have directions, this should help.

    The kit came with longer rear links, so what else is needed?
    Google tells me they relocate the rear sway bar down to allow full articulation of the suspension.

    Here's a picture from the Evo Pro Coil-over instructions.

    Thanks for the help. I got everything else figured out, and had those two left over. No extra hardware, just the two brackets.

    I will pick up some bolts and put them on next time I'm working on it.

    We got it done last night!

    Eddie, can't thank you enough for this write up and the video! I'm thrilled with how it turned out and can't wait to get off-road...

    Oh and to get some bigger tires on there too, but that'll have to wait a few months.20190413_093345.jpeg20190413_105215.jpeg

    Questions ?

    Eddie (or anyone whose done the Evo Stage 1 boost),

    I’m looking at keeping my OE springs/shocks bc I like the stock suspension feel on my 19 JLU Rubicon. My wife and I hit moderate trails a few times/yr and am considering the Evo 2.5” boost Stage 1 with shock extensions and using my 35” tires. Questions: Did your ride quality change much? Do you feel adjustable track bars are necessary? Is there a suspension kit that lifts 2-2.5” but keeps a stock-like ride (dynatrac endurosport?)?

    I put a Teraflex (yes, I know everyone hates them) 2.5” coil spring lift with bilstein shocks and lower CA on my 2010 JKU back in 2011 and it was so stiff, I felt every bump for 3 years in Moab. Not looking to use Teraflex ever again, just trying to buy the right thing the first time. I’ve had a few back surgeries and when I drove the JLU off the lot, I was so happy.

    Lastly, I know 35” tires will fit on the Rubicon, but if I do some moderate rock crawling, I’d rather not have rubbing issues. Otherwise, this JLU is my DD and sees a lot of highway miles.

    Thanks all

    I did the 2.5" EVO stage 1 lift, paired with Fox 2.0 internal bypass shocks. The springs ride great, and paired with the Fox shocks, the ride is better than stock.

    The little woman drives it daily to work, plus wheeling with me when she can and loves it.

    It does give a bit more than the advertised 2.5" of lift, but not too much.

    Thanks for the input! So you bought the Fox shocks separately, but got the stage 1 with their coil springs. Do you run 35” or 37” tires?

    That is correct.

    I got the shocks and lift from Bubba at Exodus, after talking to him at length about what I wanted. He recommended this and I could not be more pleased. His deal was better than buying direct from EVO.
