Hey that look legit. Do they make them for the 06 WK. Why didn't you go with HR or Ebiachs?

I just ordered mine tonight, the hemi orange looks great! From everything I have read on these, they are a huge improvement over stock.

Yeah, sorry it has taken me so long to get back to this.

The ride is the same comfort level as stock, it just seems "tighter" than stock, but no bounce or harshness.
The rig now seems more agile, more like my XKR but of course higher up.

there is some settling from day one witch is nice, and the ride and handling is that of what you would have expected and should have came from the factory.

The HRs (from what I heard from chad) don't give enough of a drop.

I didn't want to deal with the bumpstop and all with the Eibachs, plus I'm kinda pissed that a great Co. like Eibach would put out such a crap product like the original spacers and bumpstops.

the drop on ur ride is amazing, so let me get this straight these are the revised road magnet springs ???

I have the original ones I used on my 06 WK and it does look sick as well but it does bottom out from time to time

Thanks, I am very happy with the amount of drop.
Yep, the RM2s as I call them (RoadMagnet 2s).
I have driven normally (except when negotiating steep drives or curbs) and have not bottomed out. The bump steer, and mild bouncing on the highway or in high speed tight turns is gone. I highly recommend these springs. They are inexpensive, easy to install, and in my opinion, worth twice the money because of the performance gains.

Go and buy a set if you can still get them (I think you can from their website)

Re: Looky, looky, what came in the mail today

damn I likey!!! thanks for the pics and info +rep!

And when you say "inexpensive", how much did you pay for yours? And you got them direct off Rm's website? I am interested as my suspension is close, but I think springs may be the answer...
