With all the questions all over this forums in regards to suspension it only seems right that we should just have a knowledge thread. I would like to update and keep it fresh with latest info so I look to you guys/gals for info on what you have done as well as a picture of your final product. Lets go with a few simple questions and we can start building a little database of what works and how it looks.

Mine:

Year: 2013
Wheel Size: 17"
Springs(SRT or NON SRT): SRT
Which ones: MOPAR
Measurements(center hub to lowest point of Fender): Front: 18" / Rear: 18 1/8"
other suspension parts: OEM
Did you get an alignment: Yes(Dealer)
Back within Spec?: Yes

I'll try to scrub some of the other threads that might have some info we can place in OP and add link to the post. But I'd prefer if the exact details are put here so I don't mess it up.

Added measurements of my Post Spring install from hub to fender as well.

Re: Non-SRT GC Suspension Thread(Info and Pics)

here is how the jeep sits now after installing 2017 SRT rear springs only, keeping the front 2017 stock springs.
also switched out the 2017 stock, rear only sway bar and links, for 2017 SRT oem parts.
I haven't changed the stock shock setup.
front and rear heights are now level and match perfect. no more rake.
both front & rear have the same measurements 34" from the floor to fender, 20" from center hub to fender.
22"x 9" wheels

Re: Non-SRT GC Suspension Thread(Info and Pics)

2012 Laredo X QT1

In my case my front end got higher becasue my car suffered from the bent spring issue where there is a TSB about it. So for years the front end was pretty low. People would ask me if it was lowered and I would say no it's stock but is sat lower than all the other WK2 of the same age.

My setup:

Shocks and struts : Bilstein 4600 series stut up front and shocks in the rear.

Springs: 2014 OEM SRT springs (NON towing pack)


The rear did get lower and the front raised up about an inch or so, The result is a Level Stance.
