Question Replacing Bilsteins

I am getting ready to install my Eibach springs and I was thinking about replacing the factory Bilsteins with the KYB's. Has anyone done this or has anyone used another company like Monroe? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Re: Replacing Bilsteins

sorry never owned kyb but be careful with the aftermarket with your srt8. your stock bilsteins are 1 inch shorter than reg grand cherokee./

so make sure the KYB is a part number that is ONLY for the srt8 or they not gonna work good
