Springs, Struts, Shocks, and what else?

I am sure this has been discussed at nauseum, but do I need anything else to lower my jeep? I ordered the eibach pro kit and those should be here Wednesday. I am still looking for the best price on the bilstein shocks/struts. I have read people promoting the srt rear sway bar and I am still undecided on that. Is there anything else I am missing that needs to be replaced? Thanks in advance!

Re: Springs, Struts, Shocks, and what else?

I just realized I ordered the wrong eibach springs. I ordered these:

Eibach Pro-Kit Spring Set

Apparently these are only for the SRT, oops! The more I read about the springs though I think I am better off with road magnet mids, but I cannot find them anywhere to buy. I don't want the extreme drop, just the mid. Does anyone have a link to where I can buy these?

You run these same springs, same part number? How is the ride? How much of a drop is it? I keep going back and forth with the eibachs and the road magnets, but I cannot find the road magnets anywhere to purchase.

Check Black Ops. They have em and have the best prices on them. That's where I will get mine when I do. Already have a set of Bilstein 4600s

I already checked with black ops and they do not have anymore. Chad actually told me road magnet has shoot their doors for automobile springs and will not be making anymore.

Yep, or at least that is what he told me. He also said he is the only person they sell to, so if he doesn't have them, nobody will. Good luck!

Re: Springs, Struts, Shocks, and what else?

anyone have any recommendations for shocks other than the bilstein's? I have called numerous places and they are back ordered everywhere and nobody has a clue when they will be available.
