Thanks! Here's a shot of stock height vs lowered on road magnets. It's a pretty drastic difference check out the lights and side view mirror heights as well as the wheel gap

Skunkd do you drive this vehicle in the snow?

Re: * Skunkd's 2015 White GC Altitude *

Love what you've done to it. Out of curiosity, have you ever towed or intend to tow with your JGC? I wonder how it would feel with the midtops.

I recently mounted the tow hitch on a non-towgroup Altitude and will test the non load leveling suspension with my race car next weekend. I changed my Tacoma for the JGC because of how rough it rode and the load leveling suspension just sounds like it will screw the smoothness of the JGC. I am hoping the non load leveling version will not sag too drastically (my Tacoma did sag quite a bit).

Cheers
AdR

Honestly I don't think you could tow much of anything with the mid drops the shocks bottom out with no weight in the trunk. There just isn't enough shock travel once lowered to tow. probably should stick to eibach's for towing

Re: * Skunkd's 2015 White GC Altitude *

I recently got a black 2015 Altitude and want to change over to the brembro calipers. Will these just bolt on in place of the regular ones or will more have to be changed to make them fit?

What size wheels do you have? That will be the biggest thing. 20's with proper backspace is key. Now as far as them bolting up to your spindles I'm not sure. I know with the WK1 you'd need to swap to the SRT spindles. Maybe skunk'd can or another WK2 owner that done the swap can chime im. I'm more of the WK1/ 3.7 expert on here....

They'll bolt right up but as the person above states you'll need to swap out your wheels. The Brembo's will not fit behind your stock Altitude wheels.
You'll need to find a wheel with enough offset and the proper design to allow for their fitment. In my case I went with an SRT8 replica wheel and Skunkd went with an aggressive aftermarket wheel.

Re: * Skunkd's 2015 White GC Altitude *

Thanks, I have the stock 20's. Would spacers on the stock rims get the offset needed for clearance?

Also do you know if the SRT HID headlights are a direct replacement?

You also need to get stainless lines or slightly grind down the stock rear brake line banjo blocks to fit it onto the brembo caliper
