Re: Lowering The jeep

Looks great. Thanks for taking the additional photos.

Are you noticing any difference in roughness from stock or increased performance in turning? Any other plans for different tires? Sorry, just curious.

Re: Lowering The jeep

Yeah, I have noticed the ride quality can be a little bad when I hit big bumps, speed bumps, etc. overall I am happy when I'm driving at higher speeds. It's not enough for me to change because the look of it is awesome to me.

I actually reached out to Black Ops before I made the purchase and they said that this springs are better than the EiBachs in their opinion. Apparently they get a lot of complaints about the EiBachs - so I'm happy with my decision.

Just read this as I posted the other reply. Thank you, that is helpful.

Re: Lowering The jeep

Hi Mr. Primo,

Your Jeep really looks great. I have a 14 Summit, 4x2 and I am just about sold on the Roadmagnet "Mid-level" drop springs. Could you please describe the difference in ride/handling characteristics? IE: any rubbing, wheel hop, etc.. Does it ride better or worse overall?
Did you get the SRT Bilstein shocks also?


Thank you very much )

Re: Lowering The jeep

I would say that the ride quality is a bit worse but not enough for me to regret getting it dropped. You can really notice it when you go over big bumps, pot holes, etc.

I wasn't planning on changing shocks- what have you heard about those shocks? Does it help drive quality much after springs are installed?

Re: Lowering The jeep

I only know that some people change to the Bilstein Shocks after they pu on the lowering springs.

I really want to lower my baby, but the ride quality thing "scares me"!!

Please keep me posted on your nice Jeep..

Thanks,
