Re: Lift kit for Quadra Lift? Options?

I have removed my air suspension from my WK2 Overland. Not a difficult task but needs to be done in the right order. Results from the Eibach lift kit are ok, but there is some knock. I've ordered the Bwoody extended sway bar links and JBA upper arms to see if this resolves the problem. The stock 20"s have been removed and replaced with 18" Sahara rims. (32.1). The front is not quite high enough for 33's and I will order the rocky road spacers for the top struts. Be aware that removing quadra lift will cause the centre selector to flash. The Overlanf v8 is permanent AWD no issues for me though. The select terrain also does not function after the delete. This again is no biggie as that only adjusts the ABS and braking system.

SelecTerrain also affects the drive train including torque balance front/rear and shift points.

Re: Lift kit for Quadra Lift? Options?

I drive my jeep here in the Oman desert and the empty quarter of Abu Dhabi. I need the V8 power to get up the huge sand dunes. After buying the jeep I found the limitation of the QL system. Firstly the QL "tops out" making a horrible noise and secondly I have to stop and lift the jeep to get of the crest of the dunes. I could live with the limitation but decided holding up the group was not for me.

So the fix is simple, change over to springs from air. All of the mountings are identical to a Laredo with springs. I will post all of the OEM suspension parts numbers required to make the change

With the OME, Rocky road, Eibach or Icon lift kits the front end is lifted by a minimum of 2". This will allow for 33" tyre to be fitted to the front. I have the Eibach kit and I currently have 32.1" stock Bridgestone 18 tires found on the Wrangler. Yes there is room to climb up to a 33" tire but I would prefer a little more clearance. I will splash out another $39 to get that little extra lift to increase the front end lift.

Under normal driving conditions with the 2" lift there is noticeable body roll, which I personally do not like. I am therefore going to get over this buy splashing out the $200 to stop this happening. Bwoody extended links I believe will solve this problem.

I will be stripping down the suspension soon to fit the new parts. I will post some pics of the lift I have done. For me removing the air system is a no brainer if you want to off road.

Re: Lift kit for Quadra Lift? Options?

I have a 2014 limited with the QL. Im in need of a leveling kit which there seems to be none, does anyone know how hard it is to adjust the links, I maybe need atleast an inch in the front to get the tire and rim sizes i want to run on my wk2.

I have 05 20' SRT rims on it and I'm looking to get 275/50/20's to fit. I was looking at atturo trail blades, BFG KO2, etc.
I know the back will be fine but i'm trying to figure out if it will be worth adjusting the links or compromising for smaller tires

thanks

Re: Lift kit for Quadra Lift? Options?

The links just send a resistance value the the computer... you could just disconnect the link in the normal ride position and rotate the arms... moving the arms should then alter the amount of air in the front struts.. when your happy with the height clamp the arms with a clamp.... or buy another set of switches from a breaker yard and glue them in a fixed position...

I fitted 17" copy AEV and found clearance on the calliper ...265/70/17 BFG KO2... problem with these is the road noise... sounds like the wheel bearings need replacing when driving... so I then put 285/50/20 with a 30mm wheel spacer... this gives me a better stance on the road...
