Re: Load Leveling shocks retrofit - Laredo

I actually lowered the suspension a month ago and the standard replacement shock that I bought from the dealership exactly the same that was on my GC, so the dealer did not upgrade me to load leveling suspension when I had to tow package installed at the dealer! I have Tokiko all 4 corners and the standard replacements are the same @ around $42 each for the rear shocks.

Sorry to revive an old thread here....I in fact have a Laredo 4x4 with the tow package. I was planning on purchasing wheels soon and thought I could just get the mid level Maibachs and call it a day....but after reading these threads have come to realize I will need to replace my rear - load leveling shocks with non-load leveling shocks

Does anyone know the part number to the Non load leveling shocks for the rear both right and left side?

What about the mounts?

Thanks!

Good luck towing with lowering kit dampers... They aren't even close to being in the same league as hydraulic load leveling shocks. The dampers you are talking about are nothing more than the factory non load level shocks with a modified top mount to fit where the load leveling shocks used to be for people that want to lower their cars that had load level shock mounts to begin with.

They have no load leveling functionality at all. They just fit in place of them. you do realize that right? If you aren't towing I suggest u swap out to factory non load leveling on your jeep for around 250 bucks instead of the eibach, the ride will be better and more comfortable.

If you are towing anything substantial there is literally no other option but the factory load leveling shocks. Like I said new the load level shocks/mounts go for 750. Mine have been used for 1,000 miles so they are not new but as darn close as you'll find to perfect shocks. Price is negotiable !

Item # 68069671AE

I just did the conversion to non load level and this is the part number for both of my rear shocks.

Mopar Rear Shocks for 2011-14 Grand Cherokee WK, Item # 68069671AE #68069671AE_2

Not sure what your part numbers are but these are the correct ones.

To finish the conversion you need 2 of these top mounts.

Re: Load Leveling shocks retrofit - Laredo

Hello everyone...new here.

Has anyone been able to identify what the OEM part numbers are for the load leveling rear shocks? Having a heck of a time trying to find out from service or mopar. Seems like no one understands what these are.

Been a jeep guy for years...just bought a new jeep for towing a travel trailer and I'm thinking it might be useful to have the leveling shocks in the rear to accommodate. I'm towing about 5500lbs with a tongue weight of about 600lbs.


Thanks in advance.

Re: Load Leveling shocks retrofit - Laredo

After many phone calls and time spent doing some research, it looks like the OEM part # for the Self Leveling Shocks is: 68069680AF

This includes the shock itself and the upper mount.

I haven't quite determined if there is more to the swap than this however, it looks like we're moving in the right direction.

I was able to find these parts online MSRP is $504, being sold for about $350 each.

I'll continue to add info as I get it. Hope it will help.
