The problem is John is they are not perfect brand new and not every jeep srt is the same. I got mine within or very close to specs with the hybrid drop. Others not.

This is why I just went with the Mopar springs. Didn't want to have to buy extra parts just to get the alignment within spec.

What drop do the MOPARS give ? Is it between the Eibach ( 1.1 and .7 ) and the RM mids ( 1.8 and 1 ) ?

Re: Fresh Pics of the Kraken

When doing a drop on any of my vehicles (this is the 4th) whether it was eibach, mopar, road magnet, etc there was no guarantee that I would get back to stock specs.

Just like Scott said, he has the exact spring set that I do and didn't need the rear control arms.

Alot of times its just the luck of the draw, but even with me having to get the rear arms, I am super happy with how everything turned out.

Very sweet Jeep. I like that the wheels almost look factory but in a 22" design

Can't remember the exact specs for the drop but, the mopars have the same specs as the newer version of the eibachs. They're the same springs. Really happy with the drop on the Velgen 22's. The ride and handling are excellent.ImageUploadedByJeepGarage1475537174.227262.jpg
