This is the GenRight ELITE Coil Over Long Arm & Long Travel Suspension "System" for the Jeep Wrangler JK 4 door (fits 2007 to present).
Introduced in November 2013, this 3rd generation kit has outboard mounted rear shock towers and the kit comes in pre-welded sub assemblies which cut install time in half.
American Made, it offers the highest performance and best ride quality on and off-road. In 2014 the GenRight Terremoto (equipped with this suspension) was featured in Crawl, Off Road Adventures, DUB and on the cover of JP Magazines.
Our founder, Tony Pellegrino insists on superior off-road performance. This was a challenge since the 4 door is a long (and vulnerable) wheelbase vehicle… So he brought to market an unprecedented completely FLAT belly system that has the lower control arms tucked into the middle for protection from trail hazards (by using our unique rear mounted fuel tank). Combine that with up to a 3.0" diameter coil over shocks and you have the ultimate combination... a no compromise suspension for your JK!
Unlike other kits on the market, this suspension system is designed to provide a smooth non-binding movement through the entire stroke of the suspensions travel (aka: articulation). We worked with the original factory Jeep CAD files to design this system and place the shocks in the optimal position to provide your vehicle the best articulation and dampening control for the best and most balanced ride. SEE VIDEO Yes, this package, replaces the entire Front and Rear suspension on your Jeep (JK) with the best components on the market and does it right for the last time!
Another hidden feature is that the control arms are NOT connected to the center transfer case skid plate either (most other long arm kits are). This simple feature makes access to servicing the transmission, transfer case, drive shafts and exhaust much easier. As you can see from the price this is no "bolt-on" kit! This suspension is welded to the frame and replaces all the cheesy factory brackets and mounts with new heavy duty 1/4" thick laser cut mounts! Now, in a single click you get all of our best suspension components to convert your Jeep to coil overs! Yes, we have made every upgrade you could want so your Jeep can be the best in class on and off-road!

This ELITE kit is the equivalent of a 3 to 4" lift. It is recommended for Jeep JK's with up to 42" tall tires (requires non-stock axles). You will want to push your front axle forward approx. 2 - 3" as you go up in tire size.
All the kit pieces are made from heavy duty materials that have been proven on and off-road for years..
For more detail on the individual kit contents click on the hyperlinked part number after each item above.
IMPORTANT NOTES: This kit was designed in Solidworks with Currie Rock Jock 60 or 70 front & rear axles. The rotated diff covers to provide for a lower ride height and more up travel. We order these axles from Currie built to the GenRight specification (width, pinion angles, upper control arm mounts, diff covers and castor) to utilize the full potential of this kit! Clearances were designed for less than 1/16" between the moving components. The rear axle is Full Float style hub. To install this kit will require cutting and welding. The kit will also require some minor cutting of the inner fender wells to accommodate your out board shocks and tires. This kit requires removal of the factory fuel tank and switching to the GenRight JK tank (GST-8002-2) which is mounted behind the rear axle (under the vehicle). This kit will require modifying the exhaust in several locations. The kit is not compatible with body lifts; we do not recommend a body lift on a JK. ALL options on this page are already discounted as a package! This kit is designed to retain the factory steering box location. We always recommend upgrading to Hydro Assist steering with 37" or bigger tires! Changing the tire size and gears will require recalibration of the factory Jeep computer (about $129).
Once you have placed your order online, a GenRight staff member will contact you to discuss the specifics of your build to tailor the shocks and various other part options to best suit your intended use. If you choose to use non recommended parts (i.e. Axles, Steering, etc.) we can not tech support your install. This system (1st generation) was introduced at the SEMA show November of 2011, today we are selling our 3rd generation kit.
It was then featured in CRAWL magazine and June 2012 issue of 4 Wheel Drive magazine because it is designed to convert your Jeep from a nice trail rig to an AWESOME rig that works great on and off road (what some call dual sport)!
What I received when I purchased the elite suspension kit was much more than a kit. I got the Genright race teams handcrafted version of the Ultimate JK. The jeep has been on the most extreme trails in Northern Cal and performed killer! It performs just as well on the ride home. I highly recommend having the Genright team do the install, their quality of work and depth knowledge is the best I've experienced.
Some people say its pricey, but if you want the best race team in the industry to create a work of art under your rig that performs as good as it looks - its a bargain!
Be warned - you will need an fresh tow strap for dragging your buddies through the gnarly stuff.Grayson

Ii started out with me wanting a better ride. I got a lot more than that! Yeah, it's not cheap, but it will be done right. You get more than a "kit", it is a "system". It is so well done that I had no idea a Jeep could drive this good on the street or the dirt! Save your $ and do it.Anthony from CA
