Anybody have any shots of 2012-2014 Grand Cherokees with SRT Springs on, im planning on putting some on and just want a quick reference I heard it lowers it about 1 inch which would be ideal. Thank You to all in advance.

Re: Pic Request

Just to let you know, you can't put lowering springs on the air suspension models. If you don't have quadralift there's a few lowering kits for the Wk2. The one that fits your liking is the eibach lowering springs. They have a 1" drop in the front and 2" drop in the rear.
For pics just type "eibach" in the search bar.

Thank you for the info but I dont have the adjustable ride height I just need that subtle drop that SRT coils give, close up that gap by an inch.

That's what I'm saying. The eibach springs are for the NON-Air ride suspension. You can't put stock SRT springs on our wk2s. If you want SRT Springs that fit our trucks you need to buy Roadmagnet SRT Springs that fit both Srts and non-Srts

Maybe he meant an inch in the front, but there's no 1 inch all around drop.
Check out blackopsautoworks.com they have the SRT mid level drop springs that lower the front 1" and rear 1.8" that's the closest you'll get, and since our rears are higher than the front it'll probably even out and not give the "raked" look.

Excuse my ignorance but isnt the SRT lower than ours by an inch all around not just the front? And also wouldnt those SRT mid drops lower ours even more than the advertised 1 and 1.8 or are they advertising those measurements for non srt's? I appreciate the help too man Thanx

Why would the road magnets for the SRT fit the non SRT but the stock SRT springs not fit the non SRT? I put my SRT springs on my mother in laws '14 and it dropped right about an inch

Re: Pic Request

From what I've seen on the forum you can't just put stock Srt springs in. You have 2 great options that people have been successful with (Eibachs and Roadmagnets), if you buy stock srt springs you'd be taking a risk because I haven't seen one single non-srt put stock srt springs on.

Exactly what I was thinking! There are many part interchangeable between non-srt and srt and suspension springs is probably one of them. Here are pic of srt road magnet extremes for reference on how low they drop...they are the only setup that will eliminate the rake completely. Keep in mind there are 2 road magnet version on blackopsautoworks.com though.

Looks great! I had chad split the two sets for me and went with 1.8" front and 1.8" rear. I wanted a slight rake as the angle of the roof in the back always made the rear appear lower to me even though it was a half inch higher
