Ordering Road Magnet springs tomorrow and have a question

First, yes I did use search and still came up with no answer to my question.

As the title says I am planning to order my road magnets tomorrow and I am having an issue figuring out if I have the LL shocks on my 2011 JGC.

Some threads have stated if you own an earlier year wk2 like i do with the tokico rear socks P# 68039560AA then you DO NOT have LL shocks. Other threads have stated that part number doesn't come up in the dealership data base anymore but from their understanding it is the part number for the LL shocks. Can someone please clarify for me before i order $400 springs and i am unable to mount them. Thank you.

For anyone with the same part number as mine 68039560AA according to the dealer this is the non LL shocks made by tokico. They have discontinued this part and it will no longer show up in their system. Hopefully this can help any future members who end up purchasing older model Wk2's.

I went back to standard mags.
The 22's shook the hell out of the vehicle, thought they were not balanced right. I went to multiple wheel shops before i worked out that they were actually buckled.
Turns out that even the replacement wheels were buckled. Lucky i didnt ship them and they got checked before getting shipped (Im in NZ and would have paid customs/clearance etc on them). A bit shocking from Lexani.
In the end the wheel shop i bought from DAK Wheel and tire / DAK Global seems to have gone under and ive ended up loosing not only on this set but about 5k worth of stuff
So back to the Question. Factory plasti dipped black 18"s till i get some money saved up

What does buckled mean? How is a wheel buckled? You mean warped? Bent? I am interested because I am trying to diagnose vibration over 60mph on a vehicle with aftermarket wheels

Re: Ordering Road Magnet springs tomorrow and have a question

yup, buckled/warped/bent from factory. I assume the moulds made this happen.
Vibration could be a few things but on a new car is usually wheels/tyres.
If you have had them balanced then yes go get a balance on a run out machine, (they use a dial gauge to check it.
Here is my vibration -

And here is my
