You install them...it takes about five minutes, maybe ten at the most.

DIY homemade air suspension links. Install with pics!

Re: Need more info on Lowering Links for a WK2V8

This is a no-tool required installation...raise to ORII height, pop off the originals; pop on the new ones. The fronts you can do just leaning over next to the tires/wheels. The backs require you stick yourself on the ground so you can see the links. As to making them, you can buy them from the OP of the other thread pre-made. This assumes you have a MY15 or early. There's something noted in that thread about MY16 that needs resolved.

Find the thread on Quadralift raising/lowering links. Plenty of pictures and plenty of reasons not to go that low. It sounds like you need to do a lot more research before you make a move.

Governor, Thanks.

I have been searching, and I cant find pics or links to places that sell these links.

So here is what I would like to do. (Maybe you can direct me) Again I am new to JEEP (coming from a Lexus)

Lower the truck like 1 inch all around. Not like in Entry/Exit. slight bit higher is ok.
I want to purchase links already made (Hope its a easy install w/o problems) or find somewhere to have them drop them in.

Re: Need more info on Lowering Links for a WK2V8

The links are currently a DIY item as detailed in the thread I linked to. There are no commercially available versions available that I'm aware of. The OP of that thread makes them and sells them for those who don't want to make their own. That said, he also indicates that the MY16 is "different" and I don't believe the existing links work.

There is a commercial product that plugs into the systems to alter "normal" height from a company named Liams, I believe. $$$

AAR makes the links too, that's were I got mine and their very well made and work great. It appears that they have redesigned them for 2016 since they have a separate option for this model year so they should do the same thing the 2014/2015 ones do.

Thanks. I was unaware of this vendor.
