Help! SRT, Eibach, or RM mid springs?

Hello everyone,

I have a 2011 Limited V6 standard (non-leveling) suspension.

Last night I installed some SRT Spider Monkey reps in 20X9 ET 34 with 265/50r20 Michelin Premier LTX tires. Love the wheels and tires...but I realized the Jeep looks pretty silly now without a drop (see below). In fact, I pretty much hate the look.

So I've spent the past 6 hours reading everything I could here on spring and shock options. Probably read 100 different threads but all it did was confuse me more. I understand there are 3 general options for springs here:

1. SRT OEM springs
2. Eibach Pro Kit
3. RM mid

At first I was sold on the Eibach Pro Kit. But, it seems half the threads here say they get the 1" front and 2" rear drop, and half say the drop is virtually nonexistent.

I don't wand to SLAM the Jeep, as I live in the NE and deal with decent amounts of snow. I just want to take out most (about half or a little more) of that wheel well gap. I also want to keep decent drivability since the roads around here stink.

I think now I'm sold on the RM mid springs with the Bilstein 4600 shocks and struts.

Thoughts?

Thanks in advance!

Re: Help! SRT, Eibach, or RM mid springs?

Since I'm trying to decide now between the WK2 SRT OEM springs and the RM mid-level springs, I'm wondering if there's any information that compares the lowering levels of the two sets. Especially with the Bilstein 4600s installed.

Any info is greatly appreciated!
