    I can get a good deal on a 2.5" Avid lift. What do you know about the lift? Is the Teraflex a 2" any better?

    thumbs up for avid.. have the 2.5” on mine combined with the eibachs and oversized 245/70R17 tires. I like that the spacers are cnc’d on the 2.5 vs all other lift kits, plus the 2.5 comes with the adjustable arms for rear toe correction.

    I 2nd the Avid thumbs up! I installed the 2" kit. Included the adjustable control arms (forward dif to spindle in the rear). Excellent offsets built into their strut spacers for proper OE alignment. Check to see if the Teraflex kit includes them. Also check other threads on Teraflex sway bar end link noise. Good luck and post some pics!

    from what I've read, that sway bar link clunk is widespread.. I’ve been waiting patiently for daystar to charge my card $45 and ship me the adapters they make to allow using them without the knock since I don’t have any way of making offset angled washers. been driving around with mine disconnected ;)

    I got the daystar lift and also had the end links start to make noise. They replaced them for free and the new ones had the exact same problem. I put the factory ones back on and they have been working fine.

    No problems with my Avid 2" (non-heim) end links.

    So it looks like the Avid is the way to go. Thanks. Anyone know if a 2018 TH rear bumper will fit a 2015 Lat?

    Trailhawk bumper is set up for a single tailpipe (right). Not sure on the Latitude, but if it has dual pipes you might need to trim the valance. Holes for the left tow hook and trailer hitch would remain open, unless you have the hardware. Can't think of any other fitment issues, but I've never done a side by side comparison.

    I have someone that got a AVID rear bumper and is selling me his TH with hitch and hardware for $250. I want to make sure it will fit. I think I only have a single tailpipe. Thanks.

    FYI, I think there is programming required to get the body computer to recognize the trailer hitch wiring harness. Dealer charge involved. I'm working on a solution with an OBDLink, AlfaOBD app and an adapter cable ($155 package). Also works for many other functions including reprogramming for larger tires. I'll start a thread if I get it to work.
