Re: Lowering / Levelling QL

Yeah got pretty much the same response.
As long as there is plenty of clearance during suspension movements.
Short of talking to a Jeep engineer, I guess we'll never know what the bend is for.
Steve: Yeah I think u might be right, love the look though!

Hello Mark.

Don't worry about the bend. You will see that there is lots of clearance. It's the same kit as the ML & GL & they all have no issues.

John Vranic

Still doesn't make me 100% comfortable, why would Jeep go to all the trouble of shaping the existing links if there is no need?

Re: Lowering / Levelling QL

Yeah "slammed" has got a certain appeal! You should contact the CarSales advertiser and say you'll be around with a bag of cash provided it's going to look exactly like the photo.
;-)
Actually... it looks a hell of a lot like the yard at the back of Ozzy Park.

Just did mine with the adjustable air ride kit. Good quality parts and I'm happy with the results.

Re: Lowering / Levelling QL

Bumping this for some questions. Anyone look into new shocks for QL to prevent the 'floaty' feel over bumps? When in sport mode, the body roll seems very diminished, but hitting crests in the road makes the suspension feel very much like a Cadillac instead of anything remotely sporty.

I plan on lowering at least the rear end to level the ride height out and I'd like a bit more of a sporty feel. I know this isn't an SRT, but I figured since some guys are lowering on coils with aftermarket shocks, could the same shocks be used on the QL?

Also, does anyone know what size the ball/socket is on the links? It'd be nice to just order some online and fabricate my own links instead of paying $300 for AAR or ripping apart my stock links.

Re: Lowering / Levelling QL

The QL suspension doesn't use "normal" shocks...so I suspect you are SOL on that mod.

Re: Lowering / Levelling QL

Has anyone tried raising just the front. I want to put some bigger tires on and all I would need is about 3/4 up front to make it perfect so when its in sport I don't rub. Does the kit from adjustable air ride let you shorten the front or just lengthen to drop.
thanks.

Re: Lowering / Levelling QL

Yes, just do the opposite of what people are doing to lower the front. Raising it to level out the Jeep most likely won't cause any issues unless you are rolling around in OR2 all the time. AAR says to let them know if you want to raise the Jeep and they will sell you the correct parts.

Want to go in on a set of links? I just want to lower the rear of my jeep a tad, so I'd only need the rear links.

Re: Lowering / Levelling QL

Reviving an old discussion....


I noticed that while there are numerous pictures of "slammed" GCs, there has been no discussion of wheel alignment. While I like the lowered look, and thinking of doing it to my '15 GC Limited, I'm concerned about running out of adjustment, to keep my camber/caster in some semblance of specification.

Re: Lowering / Levelling QL

There was discussion in the lowering links thread about alignment. There seemed to be agreement that reasonable lowering (an inch or so) isn't affecting alignment, but someone did post recently in another thread that they had alignment issues with a non-QL lowered vehicle relative to camber, if I recall clearly. It's not hard for me to imagine that trying to run the vehicle "way down low" is going to have some impact on alignment given you're at the end of the designed suspension travel. There's little impact at low speeds, such as what you might be at with the normal park mode, but when it's slammed at high speed, the geometry is pretty far from what was designed. Now I'm speaking without any real personal knowledge, but that's what would make sense to me logically...
