So far I'm impressed with 4 wheel parts and river oaks jeep. The guys from 4wp worked the the parts department at river oaks to get the right shock and upper mount.

I'll keep you guys posted and will post pictures
Sweet! Haha! I also bought my Jeep at River Oaks.

They were very aggressive on the price and easy to deal with. I'd buy from them again.

When I get my jeep back we need to meet up for a beer bro

I got the jeep back last night. I'm loving it....I'll post pictures today. The performance is amazing. Originally I planned to keep my oem springs and leveling shocks but I'm sold with the new setup....look for a sale of parts in the for sale section very soon

More details!! I started a thread asking about upgrades to make the WK2 a sportier drive. This suspension upgrade and the detailed review that you'll write for us about how the handling and feel changed are exactly what I'm looking for!

Looks like you guys are from Houston, I live in Spring.

Dude, I need to check out your GC sometime. I'll provide the beer.

I've been holding out for the 8-speed V6. I think the responsiveness is going to be much improved with the new trans and if suspension upgrades improve the on-road handling and feel, it should be everything I want it to be.

It looks like Eibach will have their Pro-Damper set out in April, according to TireRack. $480.00 for the kit, P/N 28108.840, Available 4/8/13

Here you go


And the mopar numbers for anyone interested



The back sits a little higher than the front but IMO it looks a little more noticeable in the picture. I love the stance though....it looks great in person. The performance is completely different. The handling is amazing on the highway. Any and all body roll is now non existent.....when you make a quick maneuver at high speeds the GC holds the road and does it with ease. The 22" rims are right at home in the fenderswells too....the new GC was made for them

I was very concerned about the ride being ruff. I've had dropped vehicles before (in my early years) and the ride was usually harsh. Now I'm not saying the ride didn't change cause it did....but I'd compare it to a sports car and nothing obnoxious. Hell my old vette had a lot worse ride.

Another thing to note is even though the. Vehicle is lower it doesn't feel like you're sitting on the ground. You're almost the same height when pulling up beside other SUVs.
