Yours looks good. My rear seem almost an inch lower than yours though. I have little to no gap at all between tire and fender line. I sent Alaina from Road magnet some measurements hoping she can provide input as I do believe that something is not right. attached is a picture from last night. The front seemed have settled a little bit but you can clearly see that my rear has little to no gap.

Re: Ordered my setup

Compare yours to catalyst's in this thread, who also has the 1.8 / 1.8

Lowering The jeep




His wheel offset it stock, so they are tucked in a bit more, but that looks about the same to me.

Could be right as i have limited. I can tell you that the truck is leveling out more and more everyday. I think it needs to settle more and ill be happy. The more research I do, these springs have a very different drop metric on the limited/Laredo etc models over the srt. They are designed for srt so it makes sense. I will tell you that it rides so much better than stock and i don't regret it for one minute. I am now kust waiting for alaina from road magnet to get back to me to confirm measurements are good.

Re: Ordered my setup

If you do happen to have the extreme drop springs in the rear you will need to change the rear control arms or the camber will be excessive...

Re: Ordered my setup

FYI: when I was following you on route 23 your jeep was sitting much lower than you think in the rear!

It looked like the rear was riding 1" lower in the rear than the front.

You should get a pic of your jeep when it's moving and send it to road magnet. Those are definitely extreme rear springs.

Good meeting you by the way

Thanks. I know as the measurements from ground level to fender well reflect an inch difference. Im gonna install the 1.8 from other kit that they sent wrong and see what happens.

Re: Ordered my setup

After 3 weeks of frustration and taking my truck apart 3 times. I finally decided that the only real way I will know if they sent extreme rears is to take the rear apart one more time and compare against the longer of the two rear sets sent to me the first time. as soon as I pulled the one side out, I can see That I was definitely riding around with the extreme rears. I cant believe it but Road Magnet messed up my order twice. I'm still not convinced that I have the 1.8 fronts as I am not as low I would think but I'm done with taking truck apart. I will keep it like this for now. It rides really well. I think the rear will settle a bit more but overall, looks much more level.
