Re: Wills 01 Grand

Got everything in. The back was a breeze....front, not so much but I got it done.

Painted the rotors and calipers Silver while I had the chance.



Front:



This is the Drivers side front Shock I had to hacksaw out since they leave almost no room to get to it and I'd say a bad design on how it actually unbolts. I had to cut out the rubber bushing and held a hacksaw blade in my had and had about 1 inch to move it back and forth to get through Not fun.




Rear:



I have to clean the Jeep tomorrow and then Ill have some pics of it.

Re: Wills 01 Grand

about those rubber sleeves on the tops? I wasn't sure about them but called Eibach Tech Support and they said to leave them on....they put those on there at their factory. So I left them on.

But I did get some "General Install instructions" Without pics almost no information on it at all LOL.

Oh and look what showed up at my door this morning....it was like Christmas!

Now I have to decide if I want to change out the Eibachs for the H&Rs!

Re: Wills 01 Grand

Jeep looks sweet. I like the limited WK wheels you have on it. I have only seen the laredo wk wheels on a wj before. Nice job!

Re: Wills 01 Grand

Those are Overland exclusive WK wheels Kyle...lol...

Yeah...it has something to do with those rubber sleeves....they should be at the bottom...so you have to flip the springs around...

WOW....what are you thinking? Did you measure how much drop you got with the Eibach's?

Re: Wills 01 Grand

Thanks Kyle!

Hannes: I was also told to keep the lettering that was printed on the springs so that you can read it.....and thats they way there were. All the sleeves were at the top

Maybe you need to flip yours around

Oh and I was so anxious to start I forgot to measure But the H&Rs didnt cost me a dime. Someone screwed up and sent me both....Im not going to complain abouot that. Now I have the opportunity to try both haha.

Re: Wills 01 Grand

May be I should....lol....

Thats a pretty sweet deal Will...definitely no complaining....you can decide which set you want to keep, and sell the other set....it will be like you got your springs for free!

Remember to get an alignment....when doing major suspension work its a good idea..We need to meet up soon....I wanna see...lol!!

Re: Wills 01 Grand

Free springs FTW.

Im going to get my alignment next week sometime and figure out why my Check engine light came on haha.

Here's acouple quick pics I took after washing it.










also I love how much body roll was reduced after putting the Eibachs and Bilsteins on! I feel like im in a sports car when im taking turns. The jeep stays still through the whole turn instead of leaning and trying to throw you into a different seat! Its alot better.
