Smile Lowering The jeep

Hey guys,

has anyone lowered their 14 JGC limited on eibach springs? Im a tad short and I have been sliding in and out of the car which causes the seats to be deteriorating alot quicker then its supposed to. the only other option is putting in side steps which im not really fond of. If someone could post photos would be awesome!


Is the suspension on the 11-14 all similar if not the same? Will I be able to Install the SRT8 Eibach springs?

thanks guys!

Re: Lowering The jeep

the suspension is the same as 11-13. Not sure the SRT springs will work

Re: Lowering The jeep

Yep…I lowered my 11 WK2 with the Eibach suspension and love it. I can't really tell you how much it will help with the wear and tear of your seats. For me it was all about leveling the Jeep and getting rid of the annoying raked look that is common in the 2wd set up.

Re: Lowering The jeep

Holy crap that looks so amazing! What rims are you running? why are you choosing road magnets over eibach?

sorry for all the questions, I just want to do it once unlike before on my previous cars, X Springs then Y springs then coilovers!

any links as to where to order the road magnets?

lol thanks bro! I went with road magnets because they lower the rear 2.8" which helps to get rid of the rake and level out. Rims are lexani R-05's in 22" 275/40r22 front tires and 305/40r22 rears. I bought my springs from blackopsautoworks.com. They are actually SRT springs but work on non SRT also.
