Re: Lowering The jeep

Okay here it is. Eibach told me that they couldn't tell me how my Jeep would look once it was lowered bc they hadn't tested a diesel yet. I figured that it shouldn't make that much of a difference. I couldn't find any weights on the gas vs diesel V6's. It doesn't sit quite like I want it to. Back to the drawing board. I want to get the back down about 2" more. I'll get some better pictures of it. ImageUploadedByJeepGarage1407839080.672007.jpg

Re: Lowering The jeep

Curious to know if my 15' Altitude, 4x4 has rear loading shocks or whatever they are? Confused about that part... Can I just get the springs? Or is this basically a $1,000 modification?

Re: Lowering The jeep

im guessing you will need the non- load levelling shocks aswell. i was thinking of lowering my limted before i found out its going to cost me north of 2k aud to just have it lowered.

Re: Lowering The jeep

Im interested more in this rear load leveling shock and mount replacement if im going to get it lowered...i have a 2013 ladedo 4x4. Im not sure if i have the tow package but i do have a place to put a hitch...so assuming that is the tow package. Was planning on getting wheels soon and thought i could just buy the mid level lowering kit and i would be set. How do i tell if i have the rear load leveling shocks? And if i do what are my options as far as replacement?

If you don't have to hitch already in place, and unless an owner before you had it removed, I doubt you have the tow package/load leveling shocks. Not sure there's any other way to confirm without the original window sticker or just going for it.

Re: Lowering The jeep

One last question...my original thought was going with 22's...the i read about lowering, and then changed my mind and decided ill go with 20's and lower the vehicle....but now im thinking about the rear load leveling shock replacement...i play in a band and travel with nearly 400#s of gear in the back almost at all times...and honestly i Was thinking i might gett a small two wheel trailer to tow behind in the future.

If i replace the load leveling shocks with non load leveling shocks and lower my car, is the 400# load in the back going to cause issues? Would it lower the car further and possibly cause rubbing/interferance issues? What about if i decide to tow a small trailer in the future?
