Lowering kits for 2011 grand cherokee?? Help please!

Hello, I have a 2011 grand cherokee with 20" rims. I want to lower my jeep to give it that more aggressive look. I'm looking at the eibach pro performance kit # 28108.540. It will lower the front 1" and the rear 2". Any input on how this will look? Will it looked slammed with that little of a drop? Any input wil be great. Thanks

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

Eibach PRO-Dampeners are usually made by SACHS which is an OEM supplier for some European cars as well as an aftermarket replacement part supplier.

Anyone owning a BMW in the 80's and 90's may have been offered BOGE turbo gas shocks as an alternative to OEM, well it the same company.

SACHS is also the OEM supplier of the Load leveling rear shock that you get with the two package.

My past expercience with the Eibach shocks and spring (I think they called it the pro-Kit )was very good there was very good and had zero issue

So for anyone wanting to lower their WK2 this would be a something to look into seriously.
