Re: Eibach Allterrain Lift Kit WK2

You can fit 285/50/20 wheels at stock height and who says you can't change dampers with the spacers ? Sounds good do whatever you would like but for all that money if be going bigger and cheaper instead.

No one says you can't change dampers and add spacers. I simply said I don't want to do that. I was never happy with stock ride quality so I wanted a change. I am not interested in going bigger.

Also, the Eibach kit is the exact same price as the Premium lift from RRO. I would prefer to get 4 new springs and dampers with a million mile warranty vs. a set of spacers and LCA's.

Re: Eibach Allterrain Lift Kit WK2

WTF are you doing a lift and adding 20" street tires for? Rofl, sometimes I laugh at this place.

Arguing over the RRO lift vs. the Eibach, on a vehicle that will be running street tires and never see off-road, what's the point?

Re: Eibach Allterrain Lift Kit WK2

Zeons are an all terrain/on road hybrid tire. Considering the fact that its my daily driver it makes perfect sense to have a tire that performs well on a paved road. I've had Goodyear MT/R's, Mickey Thompson Baja Claws, and Goodrich M/Ts and these coopers have been my favorite tire on any Jeep that I've owned.

Re: Eibach Allterrain Lift Kit WK2

I'm assuming you're talking about the Zeon LTZ? Have you looked into the Nitto Terra Grapplers? Absolutely love mine, they're phenomenal.

Yes, I have LTZ's. I was torn between those and the Terra Grapplers...I ended up going with the LTZs because of product availability at the time. OE Wheels had the LTZs in stock so I bought them.

And I'm always amazed at the amount of people who care what anyone else does on their vehicle

Flush off if you don't like what someone's doing to their Jeep.

Re: Eibach Allterrain Lift Kit WK2

It's ironic anyone picking apart a lifted WK2 with street tires as a "laughing at this place" moment. By the same token, and way more rightfully, the entire off road community, read not dusty road BS but stair steps waterfalls and truggy's, 60's, and cages. We laugh our asses off at rich kids modifying unibody AWD shiny golf carts with puny suspensions that even at full bore are a joke on anything but supply trails. Wait no we actually love them because they are expressions of individuality. I'ts the arrogant putzes that talk smack about the "right" vs. "wrong" way to do it that annoy the crap out of us.
But hey to each his own not everyone can be cool. I'm going 3" and puttin 22" rubber bands on mine. Enjoy your GC and make it yours. Keep us updated on the eibach stuff, I'm really excited to hear about the ride quality.

Re: Eibach Allterrain Lift Kit WK2

Just got my Eibach lift delivered Tuesday. Want to start it now as I have three days off but have to golf this afternoon. If the beer cart stays away I might start it when I get home. Ill take pics as well.

I am not worried as I have lifted and lowered several coilover vehicles, but was curious to the OP if they got more than one page of instructions?

Im going to go with 265/65-18 as I am staying on the stock wheels and that will be just over an inch bigger than stock. I had the Falken Wild peaks on my f150 and they got the job done in the mud. Tire guy is pushing me towards the Yokohamas
