Re: wk2 leveling kit

Without talking to much about other companies i ordered some and the quality was so bad i did not use them. Some other companies i called said they had them and then they were either backordered or not out yet so i just made my own with the height that i thought would look the best.

Re: wk2 leveling kit

Is this a tease? Your being very vague. Do you have pictures of your design? Or maybe why yours is better than the competitors?

Re: wk2 leveling kit

Maybe my words were misleading. I'm sure that the design isn't that different. There is only so many ways to make a steel strut spacer. For me it was a issue of quality. I will tell you that I did install these spacers without removing the strut and it took less than 2 hrs start to finish.

These spacers are modular meaning if u like u can add lift at increments of about 3/8" up to approx. 2.5"

Re: wk2 leveling kit

is there anymore info on this? not very descriptive of what you did exactly. i am looking to level or lift my wk2, but was curious to my options. RRO lift seems a bit extreme as i do not plan of changing tires/rims at this time. what kind of kit did you manufacture?

Re: wk2 leveling kit

Are you seriously running 1/4" spacers that fit between the rims and rotors?

Re: wk2 leveling kit

This is a steel strut spacer (top hat style). It does not require compression of the strut. It basically bolts to the strut and bolts to the vehicle with new hardware. The studs on the spacer are longer than normal allowing the addition of 3/16 plates that add lift to your liking. The least amount of lift is 1.8" however I could make them shorter upon request.

Seriously i am ... With the 2012 wk2 it now has 14mm studs that are very long this allows plenty of room for 1/4 spacers and I still have almost 1" of stud contact which is far more than it takes for maximum stregenth

Re: wk2 leveling kit

Hey man I just love your grand Cherokee! I was wondering where you got the black grille for it and how does it run with the 255 75 17 tires? Any mpg loss? Does it shift up and down on hills now? Any info will be greatly appreciated thanks
