SRT8 suspension compatible with ours?

Just found these coilovers for the SRT8:
BC Racing BR Series Coilovers for Jeep Grand Cherokee WK2 SRT-8 2011-2013

Don't know that I'd jump on these as I know nothing about the company, but if they are making them there will surely be others that follow... maybe KW, etc.

Does anyone know if the SRT8 suspension will fit?

Re: SRT8 suspension compatible with ours?

encouraging news from BC Racing:

"...our SRT8 Jeep kit will work for both SRT and non SRT models. We have done some local test fitting on a non SRT specific vehicle and everything works just fine."

Still waiting for some further info, but I may pursue this route.

Re: SRT8 suspension compatible with ours?

Re: SRT8 suspension compatible with ours?

BC does NOT have a kit and is NOT working on a kit since their is not enough interest. I'm not sure we will even see one from them!!!

Re: SRT8 suspension compatible with ours?

Two different contacts at BC have been providing info to the contrary. I've been in contact with them for two days now and even have pics of the kit.

Re: SRT8 suspension compatible with ours?

That's weird I talked to the owner of BC Yesterday he told me they are not working on it and have no plans of doing them since they have gotten no requests for them.

The picture on that site looks like the 300 kit.


In all honesty if they do do them I will be surprised I don't think the SRT sales where good enough now the non SRT may be a different story.


Just texted the owner of BC showing him the link.
He said that is all false info LMAO.. His exact words "they are wrong"

Re: SRT8 suspension compatible with ours?

Just got off the phone with Sam in Tech support and he confirms the kit IS available. The only issue that's preventing me from having them send me a kit at the moment is that they do not supply the lower fork-like portion of the strut assembly. I swear mine are welded to the front struts, but they indicate that it's attached with a sleeve & pinch bolt. Apparently they are that way on the SRT8 and the 2wd non-SRT they test fit. Maybe the 4wd non-SRT like mine is different for some reason. I'm going to double check my front lower attachments, but I'm certain they are not removable.

Here is the pic they sent:

Re: SRT8 suspension compatible with ours?

Not sure what to say, I'm in direct contact with two gents at BC who are telling me they have developed the WK2 SRT8 kit. Sam just told me they have test fit it.
Not gonna say you're wrong, as you clearly have product knowledge, but somebody is wrong here. Maybe you wanna call Sam and straighten it out?
