Re: Summit on Eibach springs

Yes coilovers would do the job , I had a set of H&R coilovers on my BMW and it was great ,
Problem is I don't think the demand is/would be high enough for a company to "spend" their time ... Hopefully some solution will be out ... I would advise not to cut any springs at all ever .

Well I really don't have any options......it's that or a fat chick in the back.

Besides, its just springs.....it's not that big of a deal.....if it sucks I'll get more springs.

I also think that I'll install some helper air bags in the rear......the ones that fit inside the coil springs. That might help the ride....maybe??

The thing that I noticed on the rear Eibach coil spring is that the top 3/4 of the spring is already coil bound just sitting stationary. Removing a coil from the top won't change the ride much......I think.

Re: Summit on Eibach springs

Hahaha yea def a couple fat chicks would do the trick ! :P lol .. Only reason i mention not to cut the springs is cuz if you cut too much the spring wont stay seated , your shocks are designed around the spring load/height .

Forget about the ride quality , but more about your safety . You can easily blow out one of your shocks/struts and then there will be some big problems esp since the spring is not seated and just moving around from being cut too short.

I had done this years ago to 1 of my cars, i literally could put my hand under and move the spring around every which way and luckily i didnt blow out my shock which would of caused some serious damage. Hey its your jeep tho, not saying whats right or wrong but just giving you some feedback from personal experience. Either way happy modding

Be the first to VIP your Jeep. I don't know of any manufacturer's putting out coils for the WK2 (no demand), but I think BC is making a set for the SRT8.

I've had Eibachs and coils on previous cars, and I think the Eibachs are a decent compromise of ride height and improved handling dynamics for our Jeep. They're definitely on my mod list.

Re: Summit on Eibach springs

Not yet......been living with it. I'm planing to get some 22's in Jan., once I've mounted them, then I'll decide what to do......I'm pretty sure I'll have them cut. The rake bugs the shit out of me.

Re: Summit on Eibach springs

sorry...damn autofix....thye are using their stock front springs on the rear. I installed the eibach front springs on the rear of my SRT and got 30.5" measurement. I only removed them because of alignment issues and I cant get the front that low yet. So I came up with a plan to install the stock front springs on the rear. It can be done on the SRT with no problems as the springs are pretty much the same...except for maybe spring rate.
