Very nice! Will the 305's fit up front? If so that will be a nice set up.

Just had the front windows tinted and made an appointment to get the chrome window trim and front grill wrapped. Just waiting on the springs...

I hope they fit up front lol all the srt guys run them do they have a lot more clearance then us? I'll be pissed if they don't lol. Worst case I guess is I'll have an extra set of rear tires but apparently they are the same diameter as the factory tires just much wider and I'm hoping they will fit on non SRT wk2's


Any pros have any input on this matter? 305/35/22 up front on a wk2 non srt? I've seen at least 6 srt guys running them front and rear

Haha. I know they have more clearance on the SRT just not sure how much. Hopefully it will all work out though. I looked at the 305 a lot just couldn't find anyone running it in a non SRT up front.

Re: 2015 GC Altitude 4wd springs/wheels questions

Anyone think about using adjustable shocks to replace the factory tow pk load leveling ones? This (in theory) would allow for best of both worlds - nice drop for daily use & the ability to stiffen as required for heavier towing. Thoughts?

I don't think that option exists.

Re: 2015 GC Altitude 4wd springs/wheels questions

Anyone done the drop springs with 22x10.5 and 285/20? My set up is below but i'm scared to put springs in because i don't want it to rub.

Re: 2015 GC Altitude 4wd springs/wheels questions

I have mid drop springs with my 22x10.5 all around with 305/35/22's and never rub. I think you might have some rubbing over dips if you have 285/40/22's. Thats why I went with the 305's.

Re: 2015 GC Altitude 4wd springs/wheels questions

Install and alignment all together is 800 dollars. No idea how the warranty will be affected by them.
