My springs are on the way!



All of the items from order #1022 have now been shipped:
1x Mid-Level Springs: Jeep Wk2 11-2016

Thank you for ordering from Black Ops Auto Works!



It may be a bit before I get them on, as I'm stashing money away for the cost to install.

Yes Chad has 4 sets of mids in stock now, I bought one set.

I ordered my Bilstein 4600s before Christmas and have them in-hand. Also have the new rear upper shock mounts since I have the tow package and load-leveling shocks.

From reading here, I knew they were getting pretty hard to come by, so when I found them here: Bilstein Monotube Shock Absorbers and Struts | 2014 Jeep GRAND CHEROKEE | Bilstein | AJUSA.com, I called to make sure they had them in stock and ordered them right then. Looks like they have the rears in stock now but no fronts. Probably wouldn't hurt to call and ask if they knew when they were getting more in. They were very helpful when I talked with them.

Actually had another member here offer to buy my shocks a couple weeks ago at full price + he would pay for shipping.

You also need the non load level shock dust boots (covers) and bump stops for the rear if you had load level shocks originally.

I wan't aware of that. Do you have have a pic and or part number for the dust boots you are talking about?

I may be able to use the current bump stops shouldn't I? Maybe cut them down if I have to?

That member was me!! I am glad you got the springs. I actually found the front shocks from some truck shop in Michigan. I was on their website over the weekend and it said they had two in stock so I bought them. I called on Monday morning to make sure they actually had them and of course he said they didn't. He called me back 30 seconds later and said I actually got the last two and they were shipping out. I got them delivered, along with the rears yesterday and dropped them off along with the road magnet mids and rear srt sway bar earlier today to have everything installed tomorrow.

That is great news! Please let us know how it comes out and if you bought new or reused your dust boots like skunkd says, above. Do you have a tow package on yours?

Will do, I will post pictures after I pick it up. I didn't buy new dust boots, I do not have the tow package on mine.

Re: My springs are on the way!

If your Springs are not marked "F" for the front and "R" fro the rear, Chad at Black Ops told me that the thicker coils go on the back. He used the comparison of the front coils being as thick as your index finger and the rear coils being as thick as your thumb. Maybe someone that has installed these recently can verify this.

Just a heads up for your installers.
