Re: Bmock's 2015 Altitude

Got the road magnet mids, bilstein shocks, and srt rear seat bar installed. Sorry for the bad pics. I will take better ones once the car is clean and it is light outside.

Re: Bmock's 2015 Altitude

Been a long process, but she's finally done. Looks good, need daytime pics and ride quality reports...

I swear, if I knew how difficult it was going to be to find the parts I might not have started it. It rides great, pretty stiff, and no body roll at all on turns. I am very happy with the results. This morning when I got to work I opened the passenger door to grab my bag and banged my forehead on the top of the door. I wasn't even thinking about it. Now I have to bend doe when getting something out of car, and same is true with the trunk in the back.

The only thing I am questioning is if the rear is sagging. Last night I was looking at it and the rear end looked pretty low. I am not sure if it is just my garage not being level, or if there really is some sagging.

Re: Bmock's 2015 Altitude

Do you know if they put the shorter, fatter coils on the back? From what Chad at Black Ops, contrary to what you might think the "stronger" looking coils go in the rear

Re: Bmock's 2015 Altitude

I think it was my slanted driveway and garage that was making it look like it was sagging. My springs were marked front and rear so I know they put them in the right place. I will keep an eye on it the next few days. Earlier today I was looking at it and it looked fine.

Re: Bmock's 2015 Altitude

Need more pics, brother

Do you experience any rubbing with your 295-45-20 tires now that you've dropped it?

Thinking about getting the same wheels (20" Spider Monkeys) and either running on the stock tires or getting another set.

As soon as I can clean it up I will post more pics. No issues at all with rubbing. I wanted a wider tire that looked more aggressive which is why I went with the 295's. Again though, no issues with running. The car really does drive so much better with the springs and new shocks. It is a little weird driving it though because I feel so much lower in it.

Re: Bmock's 2015 Altitude

Been about a week now with your new suspension. Can you give me your real-world detail opinions on: ride quality, things you've noticed that you don't like & whether or not you have any regrets whatsoever. Anxious to hear as I have all my components sitting at home with me.

Thanks

I am extremely happy with the way the jeep handles after the shocks, springs, and sway bar. It really drives like a completely different vehicle. I am bringing it in this afternoon for the alignment now that everything has settled. In all honesty though, I don't think I was really prepared for how much of a drop it would be. Don't get me wrong, I am very happy with it, but that was a little surprising. I would definitely do it all over again though.

Re: Bmock's 2015 Altitude

I know you mentioned that the ride is stiffer, but can you elaborate?

Stiffer, like you would get tired of it quickly, or like you see some of those really lowered cars riding very rough over normal driving conditions?

Mine may be a little different as I have a to package and the load-leveling springs. Others with the same set up have complained that the ride is a bit rougher than they would expect for a Grand Cherokee.

Thanks

PS Did you get is cleaned up yet? Looking for more pics
