Re: Lowering The jeep

did a goodle search and easiest to find was autoanything.com but had a look at eibach.com and it shows me # 28108.540 - FOR NON SRT and
# 28109.540 - FOR SRT
So they are there, but you have to look for the application guide top right and then go from there. Says free shippingtoo

Re: Lowering The jeep



hey guys! so here is the result of my lowering of my '12 gjc 5.7 altitude

I used road magnet 1.8" drop springs on front and back. these guys are awesome and super helpful in replacing the 2.8"s with the 1.8"s for the rear. they even offered to twist custom springs if the 1.8" didnt work out. big thanks to chad at black ops autoworks for all the assistance.

my jeep came with load leveling shocks in the rear so I replaced them with oem non load leveling shocks. I also had to buy the upper mounts and jounce stops. I tried the 2.8" in the rear first but i was rubbing and bottoming out all the time as they were made for the more firm srt8 suspension. Much better now.

other mods include:
mopar cai
ed hansens x pipe -awesome sounds and flow
moes performance ported throttle body - much peppier now
diablo trinity with custom dyno tune - made a world of difference
vvivid 8 vinyl wrap
tinted tail lights and rear markers

I will also be making a strut tower brace soon to eliminate remaining body roll

another trick i learned to help the crappy throttle response is to reprogram the throttle by doing the following:
turn on ignition (dont start car)
wait for lights to go out on dash
slam gas pedal to floor and hold for 30 sec
keep holding throttle and turn ignition off and hold for an additional 30 sec
then slowly release the pedal

this will reprogram the throttle and make it much more responsive.
drive it like you stole it for a few days and it should reman like this.
other wise itll reprogram to the more efficient slower response.

enjoy!

As they say, pics/video or none of this is really on your Jeep. Looks like you tried uploading some, but they are broken.

Re: Lowering The jeep

Wondering if any fellow Jeep owners with lowering springs could help me out with my decision making before I get my new wheel and tire setup and install the Road Magnet mid level...

I'm stuck between two different tire sizes and fairly certain I'm going with 20x9 SRT replicas (WK1 or WK2, not sure yet). I like the little bit more rim protection with the 20x9 and the stance the offset will give it.

Now to the tires, I can't decide between 295/45 or 285/50. The 295/45 in the Hankook Ventus is 30.5" in diameter to match stock and the GT Radials are 285/50 at 31.26". I know there is a better chance of the 285 rubbing, which I want to avoid, but compared to sizes I've seen a few SRT owners running with the same drop (and their's is even a tad lower I believe?) they haven't had issues with a 285/40/22, which is about 31.1" in diameter. I'm trying to fill as much wheel gap as I can without them looking completely stuffed and causing problems, so this is a concern. But the 285 is tempting for a few reasons (cheaper & better rim/tire fitment), but I just want to hear out any one else's opinion too.

Any help is hugely appreciated.

Pretty confident that I will end up with the 295's, just because I'd rather not risk dealing with possible rubbing. Now I'm questioning whether I want that much poke from the 20x9 offset or if I should go with the 20x10 to bring them in a bit...

It's lowered on stock SRT springs.

Just thought I'd answer for them, because I already knew.

Re: Lowering The jeep

Don't wanna steal your thread cause these guys are mainly rocking wk2s I'm trying to drop my jeep too but not that much I hate HATE hate the rake look I've seen some members selling their WK SRT springs ... Should I change my shocks as well? Or is there a problem keeping my stock shocks ? I'm only looking 1in or 2 in drop nothing serious since my wheels have an offset and I don't want rubbing uploadfromtaptalk1406439969204.jpg
