The springs are probably interchangeable unless you have rear load leveling but the shocks are not as they require a separate controller to manage their electronics.

Re: Will the srt8 2012 suspension fit my 2011?

I was wondering about applying SRT8 performance accessories for my 2011 Overland, such as sway bars. I haven't seen anything about SRT parts for on the forum or in the media.

It may be a while though, since the Cold Air Intake has been in the brochure for almost a year and still is not available.

Re: Will the srt8 2012 suspension fit my 2011?

I am getting a tow bar fitted but i thought it was just that, a tow bar being added on and not anything to do with the shocks. Atleast thats what the dealer led me to believe.
The tow bar addition is a bit more than i expected though so could explain things.

Re: Will the srt8 2012 suspension fit my 2011?

Just seen this online -

The 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee is also available with load-leveling shocks the two systems are not available together). When payload is added to the vehicle, the shock’s gas pressure increases until the vehicle reaches normal ride height, to improve load handling and trailer towing. Load-leveling shocks are optional with trailer-tow packages that do not already have the Quadra-Lift air suspension.

But it looks like I probably dont as some are saying this is optionaly and takes 3 odd weeks from factory. Which im sure here in NZ the dealer wouldnt bother with as it would take them ages.
