Re: Summit & Laredo 6 cyl on Eibach springs

I'm finding it difficult to get the time to post a worthy stand alone thread so I'll put these here for now and see where it goes.

So as you know the deed is done and below are the pictures. I tried to do a bunch of relavant shots with my wife's stocker to give perspective and just also keep in mind that these were taken one day after the install with fewer than 15 miles driven on the springs. Also, these are taken with the spare tire/jack removed. Not sure if that will make a difference since these springs are stiffer than stock, but worth mentioning.

Two 2012 GC Laredo 6 Cyl.
Silver is stock on 18's.
Black is lowered and on 20's.

Since I work from home and it may be a whle before I have any real settle time, I'll just keep measuring and if it drops more I'll update.


Thanks and fire away with the questions.

Re: Summit on Eibach springs

Wow! The side by side really shows the difference in height.
As of right now yours looks a little more level front to rear than mine.

Re: Summit on Eibach springs

If I install this lowering spring on the Over Land Hemi 5.7 Will I lose the function of the Air Suspension?

If not

How is the car on each different ride height?

Parked
Normal Height
Aerodynamic Height
Off Road Ride Height 1
Off Road Ride Height 2

can we have pictures at least to see how it will look?

But you cannot drive it dropped! If you drive it on drop it will go up once again!

If I could drive it dropped that would be cool. I have seen some topics talking about controlling it, but i guess there is no way doing that!
