Re: Old Man Emu 2" lift finally available to buy!!!

14_WK2,

Did you have the leveling rear tow package on your GC? I has someone tell me if I changed my rear suspension it would cause issues with my computer that levels my rear end. Is this true? I want to get a small lift to accommodate larger tires but I keep getting conflicting info! I like the RRO, but they have terrible reviews and I can't find anyone who will install it on my 14-Limited

If you have the factory tow package on a non-quadra lift WK2, then you have the Nivomat shocks. They're not tied into the computer at all and you can replace them with no issues from any other systems. The rear springs on the Nivomat equipped WK2s are softer so if you replace the shocks only and keep the rear springs, you will probably get some sagging.

Those look good and are not going to rub. I have those same size rubber on my Limited. Take a look at the KMC Heist wheels; they are super light and will help offset the increased unsprung tire weight. Good luck and thanks for your service.

I went ahead and put on the BWoody Extended Sway Bar links too.

I'm working tonight and am up too late already, so I'll post some more pictures tomorrow. Since I put the wheels and lift on at the same time I don't know the exact inches of lift, but I got about 3" between the two. Again, I'll post more tomorrow. Here's a video with a little more detail

Very nice setup and Im considering on getting the same , Could yo give me the measurements to the bottom of the trim of the fender
any issues with your setup??

aslo wich sway bar links did you get ?
