Here's my 2012 Hemi Laredo with the Eibach Pro spring kit and stock 18" wheels.

Has anyone considered, or installed, SRT springs?

Did you have any issues with the 4x4 and the springs? Do you have the tow package with leveling shocks?

Nope, no problems with the springs and the 4x4. No mine doesn't have the tow package or the leveling shocks. From what I have read on the forums here though, I believe when you have the load leveling shocks, you have to switch those and the spring perches, but I'm not sure. Someone please chime in on this.

Nice looking ride etennyson. How is the ride with those springs? Thinking about lowering my 2011 Laredo, just not sure what the ride is going to be like.

Re: Lowering kits for 2011 grand cherokee?? Help please!

What perch do you need and what shocks do you put in place of the load levelers? Part numbers?

Any help would be awesome. I am getting ready to do this to my 2011 with tow package.

If you search my threads I posted one about the eibach pro dampers specifically for tow package. I ordered the wrong rears originally and then had to show eibach they had a tow package version cause some of their employees weren't aware cause the part number wasn't loaded in their system...should be now though.

I don't have to do the eibach shocks though correct? I can just do the Non tow ones? I never tow and if I do its a 700lb wave runner that has no tongue weight.

Correct but if you go non tow package I believe upper shock mounts need to be changed also. You can verify this with member ETENNYSON from above.
