'14 Summit lowered on 22s setup?

Looking to see if anyone has put lowering springs and 22s on their WK2 Summit? If so, what is your setup?

I have a '14 WK2 Summit and looking at 22x9s WK1 SRT Factory Reproductions and Black Ops Auto Aggressive lowering springs (1.8" front and 2.8" rear drop)

Wanted to know if this is possible?
Does anyone has this setup or a similar setup?
How does the ride feel? Does it bottom out?
What size/brand tires are you running? I'm thinking 265/35/22

Trying to find the best setup for springs/wheels/tires for a '14 Summit. I'd also look into Factory Reproduction 20s if the ride is better

Re: '14 Summit lowered on 22s setup?

You can't do "lowering springs" on the Summit with QL...the air suspension is different than a sprung JGC in the lower trim levels. You can use re-sized sensor links to drop the "normal" height about 1" or so...there's a thread about that here:

DIY homemade air suspension links. Install with pics!

265 35 22, I think sidewall is a not big enough for a truck. you're gonna have this big 22" wheel with a thin looking tire https://www.tacomaworld.com/tirecalc...0r20-265-35r20

Never had a Jeep with QL suspension before. Didn't know you couldn't lower them w springs until I did more research.

Your exact jeep is almost 3 years old. Chances are someone has lowered a summit before and put 22's on it. Might help to read around the forum more before asking the same questions that have been answered 100 times.
