Can I put Eibach Pro Kit on my 2012 Overland with Quadralift?

Hello Everyone,

Just bought a new overland and wanted to lower it. Called eibach and they didnt know what the effect would be with the quadralift. Has anyone put lowering spring on their overland with the quadralift and if so have you had any problems? Thanks!!!

What do you mean totally different? It is not possible to lower jeeps with quadralift? Thanks for your help!

My understanding is you cannot put it on the jeep with the tow package either cause it has the load leveling shocks. Is this correct?

Correct but you can if you change out the load leveling shocks with the standard shocks and new shock mounts. It's about an added $200 in parts. I'm ordering the parts now and will be installing Eibachs soon on my Altitude.

Look on your center console...if you have QL, there will be buttons to raise and lower your vehicle.

If you have factory tow, there will be a hitch receiver and electrical hookups on the back of your Jeep and there will be a "tow/haul" button on the center stack (V8)...position varies slightly with model year. I don't know if the V6 has that button or not...

Now if you have an SRT, you do not have QL. You might have towing.
