    I finally got some of the part I ordered in, AVID Radius PreRunner front bumper, AVID Radius rear bumper with tire carrier, AVID 2.5 inch lift (I specified the CNC’d Billet 7050 T74) and the ATP Lift Springs.

    Bilstien B6 struts and a Warn Winch VR8-S

    The first thing I did was strip it down; Front Bumper, Rear Bumpers and finder liners (if the Rocky-Road Outfitter’s Rock Sliders had come in, I would have removed the rocker panels also).

    Knocked out the Pinch Weld modification for larger tires (to come), treated the area with spray-on bed liner and covered that with VHT High temp paint (probably a little over kill).

    Then I went with the Front Bumper with winch and the Front half of the Lift kit.

    I continued with the Rear Lift then finished up with the Rear Bumper.

    … it's funny, the closer you get to finishing, the fewer pictures get taken.

    Reinstalled the ATP Carrier Bearing Skid Plate, ATP Differential Skid Plate and the MagnaFlow Cat-Back exhaust.

    Off to the Alignment shop...
    ... Everything aligned to specification.

    I didn't say that the TeraFlex kit wasn't any good, I said that I used the AVID kit. Actually, I like the TeraFlex instructions better. I like that the AVID kit comes with the rear lower control arms, that the others do not.
    The AVID kit DOES use the Differential and carrier spacers.

    No issues with the axles.
    Bilstein struts do not require the any modifications, because the Bilstein struts do not have the lower lip like the OEM struts do that would make contact with the half-shaft.

    I would go with the AVID kit. Mainly because I used the AVID kit, I installed it myself, and I know it works/will fit.

    so just wondering how long avid take for production as they said they ouy of stock on there 1.5 kit so may go with speings from eibach first any thoughts as at this stage i still have factory warrenty and they say anything over 2 voids warrenty but they could not tell if that was aplicable to the springs when said trail hawk has springs that give it extra .8 inch they were clueless they had to call me back after talking to upper manage ment.

    That is hard to say.
    Most places build kits in bulk. They might not even start building more kits until they have enough kits ordered (back ordered) to cover the expense.

    IF over 2 inch may void the warranty, sounds like you'll just have to go 2 inches.
    Maybe their 2 inch kit is in stock??

    … maybe.

    Hi,

    I have a Renegade Trail Hawk and interested in the mods you have done to your car. Did you consider the Eibach springs when looking to replace your current one? Do you know if they are the same size?

    Curious why you replaced the struts as well?

    How is the new suspension holding up since install? Any problems or issues?

    I am considering going down the same route as you with the Avid products. How was your experience dealing with them and their products?

    Many thanks,

    Adriaan

    W E L C O M E ! ! ! to the forum.


    Eibach makes the springs for American Trail Products (ATP), ATP springs get a red powder coating treatment (I really wanted the Red springs).

    Struts start to usually brake down at around 50,000 miles, and since I was taking the strut assemblies apart to replace the springs anyways, why not. Bilstein B6 Struts and Shock have always done me good.

    No suspension problems at all after 12000 miles, and I drove it pretty hard.

    I didn't have any problems with AVID. I know that shipping can be a little slow at the times due to low stock.
    I called AVID before I ordered just so that I was aware of any inventory issues.
    ... that, and I made a big purchase when I did make my order.

    Good luck with your build.

    Thanks.

    I read somewhere that the ATP springs provides 2” lift while then Eibach only gives 1” (on TH models).

    What is the part number from the Bilstein B6 shocks? and do they provide greater travel compared to the OEM shocks on the TH? (Im guessing with the taller springs there is more wheel travel).

    I love your build

    Thanks.

    No, they wont provide any additional travel, just a better ride.

    The problem with the renegade is the unibody construction. you will get more wheel float than articulation. lol

    But it is still a fun ride.

    Ah, better ride = good

    Do you remember what the part numbers for the Bilstein B6 shocks are. Do you also happen to know what Bilstein shocks provide additional lift?

    22280909
    22280886
    22280893
    22280916

    These are the part numbers for the B6 struts that I used.

    I do not have the numbers for the Bilstein's that provide lift, because they are prone to bending.
    Because they bend easy, I wasn't going to use them.
