California Residents: Proposition 65 Warning
Tools needed for this installation, a lift or a jack and jack stands, quarter inch ratchet, 10 millimeter socket, half inch ratchet, 13 millimeter socket, 18 millimeter socket, 21 millimeter socket, 24 millimeter socket, half inch box wrench, 13 millimeter box wrench, 18 millimeter box wrench, 21 millimeter box wrench and a trim removal tool.
The first step of this installation is get your vehicle supported either by a lift or a jack and jack stands and then we're going to start with the front end, get our wheels and tires pulled off so we can get to work. The first step is to get your axles supported then remove the lower shock mount bolt. After you pull your hardware out I like to keep it in the same spot. We're going to be reusing this with the new shocks. Next step's going to be to remove this sway bar link. It's going to use the same 19 millimeter socket and open box wrench. I'm going to start by removing this lower link here. We're going to keep this hardware in the same place once again. Next step's going to be to remove this upper nut onto the stud. It helps if you use an impact, gets it off a little bit easier.
Go ahead and pull this nut off the stud and control arm. It holds on the bracket which attaches to your ABS and brake lines. You're going to reuse this bracket on the new control arm so we'll pull it off now. Make sure you hold onto all the hardware you pull off. After you have the lower shock mount bolt removed, work your way to the top. This is actually an out boarded mount with a single stud. Go ahead and pull that off and you can completely remove your shock. Make sure you keep the hardware once again. On the passenger side of the vehicle, on the axle tube you have your vacuum actuated disconnect. There's a little connector on the back here, pull the red tab out towards you, push down and pull it out. We're going to actually remove the lines here by using a trim removal tool that way when we sag the axle, it doesn't stretch these out and ruin them.
There's a pushpin right up here on the upper control arm bracket. We're going to get that one pulled out. There's another one right here on this little tab we're going to get out. We're going to remove the control arms now. There's an upper bolt here and a lower bolt that goes under your axle. They're going to use a 24 millimeter socket and a box wrench. Pull the lower control arm bolts out. Pull the upper bolts out and remove the control arm. We're going to go ahead and lower our axle that way we can get the coil spring out of the way. Push the coil spring up a little bit and it'll pull right out towards you.
Remove this coil spring retainer from the bottom of the coil pad. This is actually a new feature with the JL. We haven't seen this before with the JK. They include a new one with the Mopar kit so you can go ahead and set this one aside. We're going to install the new coil spring pads. There is a left and a right side. They're the new gray ones here. The driver side's going to be the left side. It'll slide over and then snap into place in the back. Make sure it's fully seated down before you install the coil spring. To install the coil spring, start with the top, slide it over the bump stop post and then lower the axle a little bit more if it doesn't clear.
It helps to put the bump stop extension inside the spring before you push it onto the lower perch. This allows you to not have to lower it as far and it's in there and ready to go, that way you can put the nut on underneath. Make sure that the coil is properly seated into the pad. The end has a little notch and you'll see a little cutout on the pad. That's how you line them up on both sides. The heads for the nut on the bottom side of this bump stop extension uses a small little nut that comes with the kit and you slide it up there and you actually have to feel for the threads but they are up there. Might take a little bit to get to. You can twist this and kind of start it. It's a little bit tricky but it's there. Once you get it started you're pretty much good. Go ahead and tighten it down with a half inch socket.
We're going to go ahead and install our new control arms. Go ahead and use the shorter out of the four links. These are going to have a little bend that goes towards the outside and the stud is going to actually go into the sway bar. Use the old hardware, the nut for the outside here. And then for the lower part you're going to use the same hardware you had before. For the lower part use the same hardware that you pulled out. Push them out and through and then go ahead and put the nut on the backside and we'll get this tightened up.
We're going to go ahead and install our new Fox shocks, start with the upper bolt and then we'll work our way onto the bottom one. Go ahead and put your lower shock bolt through. This is once again going to use the factory hardware that's why we hang onto it. And we'll get both of these tightened up. Reattach the ABS and brake line bracket onto the new control arm. This is where you're going to reuse the old nut that you pulled off your old control arms. Now we can tighten up our lower control arm bolts. We're going to get these snugged up and then once we're on the ground we're fully tighten them. That way we don't have any suspension bind. Go ahead and reconnect your vacuum disconnect on the front. Push in the red pin. Repeat the exact same processes on the other side of the Jeep then we're going to move onto the rear.
As you can see we've move onto the rear of our JL. We have the wheels and tires pulled off. We're going to get started. Got it supported by the lift so let's dig into it. We've got the axle supported by our pole jacks here. We're going to remove this lower shock bolt and the sway bar links. Those are going to hold up the removal of the coil springs because it's not going to let the axle droop fully. Let's get started with this lower shock mount. Same with the front, make sure you keep all your factory hardware as you're going to reuse it.
Now we can remove the lower sway bar link. And then you can work on the upper one. In order to let the axle fully droop you have to pull off this bracket here which holds the ABS and brake lines in place. This bracket will have to go first and then there's actually one behind the control arm here. Start up with this one. Use a 10 millimeter socket and simply back it off. Like I said before, a nice little trick is to actually thread these back into where they came out of that way you don't lose them. In order to let the axle fully droop, you have to remove the bracket that goes in the frame which connects your ABS and brake lines to it. In order to do that remove the 10 millimeter bolt and I like to thread it back in once you're done. Go ahead and remove the upper shock mount bolt.
We're going to lower the axle down with our pole jacks that way we can pull the coil springs out and get started with the rest of the install. Go ahead and remove your coil spring. Make sure you keep the retention pad from up top. You'll use this with the new springs. Go ahead and put the retaining pad on top of the coil spring. There's a little nub here that's actually kind of like a locator. That goes on the left side of the top perch. We're going to put it in now. It's a little bit tricky to get it in there. We're going to install the bump stop extensions here. They use an angled edge and this edge is going to face towards the front of the Jeep while this'll be towards the back so it'll twist like this. Slide right onto the perch here and then you're going to get two nuts and two bolts that are provided. Simply drop them through then we'll put the nut on the bottom side.
Put the extended sway bar links on. You're going to want the little bend to go towards the inside of the Jeep. This stud will go on the top here. Drop it down through, push this stud in. Use the factory nut on the back. Put the factory hardware back into the lower mount. Now we can tighten it all up. We're going to get the shock mounted. Start with the upper bolt then we'll move onto the lower. Go ahead and put the lower bolts in, I'm just going to use the same factory bolt that you pulled out. Get that tightened down. Once you have everything else tightened up, be sure to reattach your brake line and ABS bracket. And use the original bolt to tighten it up. Repeat the same steps on the other side and your installation is complete.
That completes the installation of our two inch lift kit on our new JL Wrangler.
