Re: Shocks for wk2

I have yet to see an application for any of the WK2's on Bilsteins site currently. If there was, I'd definately be in the market for a set.

Re: Shocks for wk2

Is there any way to improve the up travel in the suspension?

Travel, no. There are no actual suspension kits on the market. Rocky Road makes a 2.5" spacer kit that sits on top of the strut so it doesn't take away much travel. It just allows you to fit a larger tire and improved ground clearance.

Re: Shocks for wk2

Anyone check out the "Heavy Duty Twin Tube Gas 2 GS29-730" Shock Dobinsons makes for the WK2? Looks like the make coils for the WK2 as well. It is located on a .pdf on their website, Dobinsonusa.com. I was also curious if there was any replacement shocks out yet. This was all I could find. I am going to do the Rocky Road 2.5 lift, but wanted to see if I could upgrade the shocks at the same time.

"Dobinsons set about designing, testing and developing a full-replacement suspension kit to improve the Jeep's ground clearance and off-road performance. Consisting of heavy-duty replacement Coil Springs and heavy-duty Twin Tube Gas Shock Absorbers, the kit was developed with a number of different weight-carrying options to ensure the suspension is tailored to each vehicle whilst offering a 40mm lift."

Somebody on here has to be running this, no?

Re: Shocks for wk2

So, hypothetically, if you wanted slighty more than a 2.5 inch lift, you could do the RR 2.5 + the Dobinson 40mm Coils for a lift of around 4 inches. The only questions would be shock travel length and getting into stress on other bits and parts of the vehicle like shafts, etc.??? But hey, would love to see some one fit 35's on this setup lol!!

Hey warwagon. I am currently runing the Dobinsons.

Nice lift not to big and still has a nice ride to her.




Full spring and shock lift rear



and front








The good folk at Dobinsons did a great job, I am stoked with the result. The Jeep handels well as it is still within engineered limilts. The ride is a bit firmer but I think it will settle with some wear. And a gret price.
