They should. People put the srt springs on them all the time, and the eibachs are just a little lower. Any suspension parts from a non quadralift jeep will fit on another non quadralift jeep. Meaning srt suspension parts will swap over to a Laredo or limited and so on

Re: Lowering Springs Help

My SRT rear springs stiffened the ride up just enough. Not sure why you'd want anything stiffer.

Re: Lowering Springs Help

FWIW I put my stock SRT Springs in my mother in laws v6 grand cherokee and it's pretty stiff. Almost to the point where I'm surprised she doesn't complain about it. I enjoy throwing it around though

So the Eibachs is lower than the SRT's, do that also mean stiffer?

Thanks for you help.

The eibachs are a progressive rate spring, this means the further its compressed the higher (stiffer) the spring rate become. At the top end of their spring rates they are stiffer then the srt springs

Your probably right but i used this as a reference

Thanks for you help.

I'd recommend pairing them up with a shock like bilstien 4600. They can handle being lower then the stock shocks can. Being lower on factory shocks can wear them out faster

You have the right spring in the rear, what are the part numbers?
