Initial review on the road magnet mid drop is great!

Softer than stock over normal roads, less body roll, easier to get into car, and looks level and gets rid of rake! Drives better than stock in normal conditions.

No issues getting alignment in spec if you go to a shop that knows what they are doing!

Re: * Skunkd's 2015 White GC Altitude *



Mid Drop Springs are settling nicely. Honestly can't believe how much better than stock the ride is. First car I've ever lowered and it got more comfortable!

Remember this is with 1.25" spacers installed all around. The fitment is perfect and no rubbing at all went over HUGE speed humps at 30mph to test ;-). Flush with the fenders. I would definitely say if you are staying on stock wheels gets the spacers if you lower since lowering actually tucks the wheels in some. It's perfect for them now.

BUT, these 22's will be here friday so we'll see how long I leave the stock wheels on lol

He's running the BORA 1.25" spacers all around. I am getting ready to order a set for mine. I think it completes the aggressive look of the Altitude.

Hey man the Jeep looks amazing with the drop. Great Job!!

Did they get the alignment issues figured out?


Also, Can you post a link to the springs you bought when you get a chance?

Yea they are the BORA 1.25" spacers all around from Motorsport tech.

https://www.motorsport-tech.com/4DCGI/switchtruckmodel

The springs are the SRT8 road magnet mid drop springs from blackopsauto

BLACK OPS Auto Works

The alignment came out perfect no issues just have to have a shop known for alignments do it!

Looks great. ...and the wheels are a good choice.
Simple, clean, but aggressive.

I too have changed the suspension on a few previous cars and the ride quality is hit or miss. Glad the Road Magnets worked out for you.

The stock springs are so stiff especially with the tow package so switching to the road magnets and the non load level shocks in the rear really made the ride so much less jarring over rough roads. It really is unbelievable now much smoother the ride is now. I was reluctant on dong this before I ordered them but now I'm kicking myself for not dong it sooner! Especially since I don't need the high tow capacity. I'd stay away from the road magnet extreme drop though if it's a daily driver stick with the mid drop.
