The JT Gladiator, when we started designing the suspension kits, we wanted the best, best in ride, handling, and articulation. We have done miles of testing in the desert and mountains of the west coast to the moss-covered mountain roads in Tennessee and North Carolina to the swamps of Florida and driven many highway miles in between. After doing this, we were confident to have the best coil spring design and knew our customers would appreciate having the best coil spring that could be built..
The design of the Rusty’s 2” coils for the Jeep JT suspension kit was done in collaboration with the engineers and manufacturing team at Eibach. With Rusty’s 45 plus years in the off-road and jeep industry and Eibach’s experience in coil spring design and manufacturing, we came up with a coil spring that offers remarkable handling manners, a quality ride around town, on the highway and even riding down an old red clay pothole road. We developed a dual rate progressive rear coil spring and a linear front coil. Special front upper and lower coil spring isolators are used to keep the coils nice and straight. These isolators are an exclusive Rusty's design keeps the isolators form bowing the coil springs. The kit also comes with front brake line extentions and a double shear mount for the rear sway bar mount that also extends the rear brake line, an exclusive that only Rusty's offers. And to keep the vehicle from swaying and handling great, the kit comes with front and rear extended sway bar links.
The front and rear axles are properly centered under the vehicle with new front and rear heavy-duty adjustable track bars rather than inferior drop brackets that regularly break due to the leverage put on them. All of Rusty’s JT suspension kits come with the Rusty’s track bar frame brace, Jeep has had issues with the factory mount ripping from the frame, with the frame brace you can have peace of mind that you never will have a failure. The front axle is secured by a set of Rusty’s beefy 2 inch DOM adjustable "high clearance " control arms. These arms correct the wheelbase after being lifted and enable the pinion angle and castor to be properly “dialed in”.
We invite you to study the Rusty's suspension, please compare it to any of the other suspension or lift kits you have heard about or looking at. You will easily see the Rusty's kit's are the most complete kit's in the industry. Proudly made in our own facilty in the USA.
