Lowering my Jeep

I have a 14 GC Altitude and interested in lowering it about an inch in the front and about 2inches in the back. I really have no idea how to go about this or even what it might cost me overall. I posted a pic below of my altitude now to give u guys a better idea of what height I'm at now. Can anyone guide me in the right direction of what to look for and that won't kill me financially either.
Thanks in advance.

Springs - $400
Install - $ $400 - $600 (including alignment)
Camber Kit (depending on your truck) - $650 + install : I need one with mid level drop from road magnet but every truck is different. Some of the guys stay just barely within tolerance.

I have the road magnet mid-level springs and love them. The ride is great and the drop looks real clean.

Re: Lowering my Jeep

You can always go for SRT springs. They are not quite as low as the road magnets, but will still give the jeep a better stance overall. They usually sell for $150-200 for a set used.

I plan on installing SRT springs and eliminating the rear load leveling shocks and installing the standard oem shocks. I just can't believe these things were allowed to be produced with such an awful rake... drives me nuts everyday i walk up to my Alt.

Re: Lowering my Jeep

I have another question. How do they lower the SRT8 can you not use the same arms as the SRT8 I understand if you go lower then you will need new arms but just dropping an inch or 2 it should be fine.

You can still have camber issues with srt arms. Just not as bad.
