Re: Bilstein 4600

The 4600's are know to yield a 1/2"-1" lift. I had this happen on my WK when I installed a 2" lift.

I think you are correct. I contacted Bilstein and they asserted that it should have maintained stock height and checked pics of my install and found no issues. There are about a dozen different front springs listed on the Mopar parts site for different sales codes, so Bilstein could have tested with a slightly different configuration than mine when they were developing them.

If it bugs me I'll try to find springs with a small drop to get it back to original height. The big question is which ones? I don't want to get caught in a try-it-fix-it cycle.
