Re: Quadralift lowering/leveling/lifting Links DIY

I haven't, sorry. There are a few other threads about QL adjustment links in this section where people have gone down pretty damn low, basically park mode has about a 1" wheel gap. I don't have a need to go all that low, I just wanted to level out the Jeep to make it look a bit better. I might try to go lower in the spring time after we get through the snow and crap weather.

Best thing about these links is they are easily adjusted and go on and off very easy, so you can try any height you like.

Re: Quadralift lowering/leveling/lifting Links DIY

Well i got my links and installed them this last weekend. I now am sitting at about where the OR 1 setting is stock as my new auto height. Been working fine. I will take a pic of the difference when i get a chance. I took a few pictures of the process making the links as well. Jeep just feels better higher to me. OR 2 is not possible as a setting now that i sit higher. The system just keeps trying to go higher to get to the setting but it cant then has to cool down. My OR 1 setting is just about at the former OR2 though so it works fine for me. ImageUploadedByTapatalk1446601809.376742.jpg ImageUploadedByTapatalk1446601773.407950.jpg

Re: Quadralift lowering/leveling/lifting Links DIY

Nice job! Glad I could help out at least one person

Do the replacement links for the front feel flimsy at all? Like is the all-thread stiff enough to be run that long? I don't think there is much force at all on the links, but just something to think about.

If the long links need to be shored up, I imagine a piece of aluminum tubing slid over the all-thread and secured between the two lock nuts would hold everything securely and make the whole assembly stiffer.

Re: Quadralift lowering/leveling/lifting Links DIY

They are pretty solid. Im not worried they will break or bend. Though i think i am going to heat up some threaded rod and bend it so my new links are closer to the shape of the original front links.

Re: Quadralift lowering/leveling/lifting Links DIY

The purpose of this is to force the suspension to be lower or higher 100% of the time? I'm new to the vehicle, didn't know it was a possibility

Exactly. Keep in mind you can't go to much extreme due to the design of our suspension. But if you just wanna level, or go slightly up or down it should work great.

Re: Quadralift lowering/leveling/lifting Links DIY

Here is my normal auto height after i changed the links. ImageUploadedByTapatalk1447529972.389311.jpg

I'm pretty happy at this height. When i get new off road tires it will gain another inch and thats about perfect for what i want.

Re: Quadralift lowering/leveling/lifting Links DIY

While I'm NOT unfamiliar with modifying suspensions, I am new to the Jeep world. Having said that, I recently purchased a 2015 GC with the ORAII package, which includes the Quadra Lift suspension. I purchased the ORAII option because I live in the "snow belt" and wanted a limited slip rear axle. Having the Quadra Lift was not important to me.

I've been following the threads that discuss lowering the ride height of Q-L equipped Jeeps, because I'd love to drop the normal ride height of my vehicle a little bit. I've read how limited the caster/camber adjustment range is, on these vehicles, and I know how important it is, to have those adjustments set properly. So of course, it's a concern of mine.

However, to me, anyway, this brings up a question....I know that the SRTs sit a fair amount lower, and YES, I understand that the SRTs have a "normal" shock/spring deal, vs. the air suspension. BUT, are the a-arms of the SRTs different too? If not, how do they get the camber at a respectable setting on them?

I believe the SRT arms are different, but not sure. I'd imagine SRT engineers had to do some decent suspension modifications to get a normal 5000lb SUV to handle well.

Re: Quadralift lowering/leveling/lifting Links DIY

no need to bend it, i think you might compromise the metal integrity. The ones i bought are straight.
