For those who want links, JT is still offering to make them. Just PM him. He is very helpful. Unfortunately, I live in Australia and JT prefers to deal with the US at the moment.

I will be using the LLAMS Kit, as it is local here (AUS). Will post pics when I have installed it.

In the meantime,

Here is some pics of my ride (park mode) and pics of the links, front and rear.

That post was made just a few days ago. PM him to inquire directly in case he doesn't read every post in this thread.

My GC Limited is a "mid-2015" build (March of 2015), and that's what my front links look like.....

Re: DIY homemade air suspension links. Install with pics!

I need HELP guys. I had the jeep in OR2 mode so I could crawl underneath , changed links front and back , easy to do. I then tried to change the mode and NOTHING is happening. I now have the raise button and the lower button with a single light lit up.

Try holding both buttons down at the same time to see if it will go into jack mode to disable air ride. Drive it over five mph to see if it automatically shifts out of jack mode. Then try to change height.
If that doesn't work you could try pulling a battery cable for a few minutes to force a reset.

Re: DIY homemade air suspension links. Install with pics!

Sorry I haven't looked at this thread a lot lately. Yes I am still willing to make links, just PM me. So far my links have been verified to work on 2012, 2014, and 2015 years, and should work just fine on 2011 and 2013 as well. What I am finding interesting is I am seeing different link setups on 2016 years now. Some 2016 models have a newer style black plastic link, while other 2016 models seem to still have the older aluminum angled kind. I am willing to make them for 2016 years, but what I would do is make the links and leave them loose so you can "test and tune" yourself and see what lengths work for that year.
For the first few guys my price was $90 shipped, but I found making these took too much time and effort to be just breaking even after all the parts and priority shipping.

Price is now $150 shipped priority. Still a bargain compared to the kit that costs over 300 bucks. Just PM me or text at 847-769-7307.

Thanks

Re: DIY homemade air suspension links. Install with pics!

I know that I was all "gung ho" on this modification, a few weeks ago, but after investigating some of the possible camber issues, I'm holding off for a while on this deal.....
