srt springs on a non srt swap?

my 2017 gc limited (no tow package) and 22" xo wheels should both be arriving any day now.
after months of reading the posts here 2 - 3 times each ive learned I cant change the front shocks, and nobody has a lowering spring setup officially for the 2017 5.7. eibach says they're 99% sure their pro kit for the 3.6 will fit, but not 100%. mopar says that they have no idea if the lowering kit will fit, it's for srt's only.
so my question is, has anyone switched out all 4 srt springs, front & rear and put them on their non srt wk2? ive seen rear only srt springs on ants jeep's 2015 and it looks good.
i'm thinking my only options at this time are buying the oem srt spring setup, or the eibach pro kit for the 3.6 and just putting them on with the stock shocks and see what happens. that being said, the eibach's are going to be a lot cheaper.

It can be done for sure on all four corners.

I think where you run into a problem is suspension changes on MY16+

yes, they changed the front shocks. but I don't know what else. and all the experts ive called, mopar, billstein, eibach, ect...cant tell me anything.
that's why i'm just going to roll the dice on the springs I guess...i'm going to take a drive over to mopar personally later and see if they have a tech that can give me some insight as to what I can do to drop it...ive called and the guy I spoke to on the phone was useless. kept asking another guy my questions instead of just giving him the phone.

I swapped out ALL four shocks/struts/springs and installed bilstein 4600 and srt springs fits no problem even had it done at a local dealer.

Re: srt springs on a non srt swap?

ok, so I took a ride over to mopar....explained the situation....guy puts the srt springs setup on the screen and says everything looks the same as the 15 and unders. I said, I know that. my main question was why isn't anything listed for 2017? did jeep change anything? he said he doesn't know. lol. so he called the mopar engineering dept and asks them my question, they basically said the same thing, it looks like it should fit since they haven't changed anything.
they did switch to a SDX high performance spring in 16. not that it affects anything.
so the bottom line is they just confirmed what I pretty much new, that I can go with the srt springs or eibach's all around. at least it was confirmed direct from mopar engineering. now I can sleep.

with your year, you can do all 4 shocks, I cant. I can only do rears, they changed the front setup in 16

I've seen used OEM SRT springs for sale here on the JeepGarage Classifieds when these guys drop even lower. I know you're in a hurry but keep an eye out and you can save some money.

yeah, that's my only problem, time... I just missed the last set on here by an hour.
