Re: Road Magnet Aggressive Drop

Did you install them yourself? Tried to do mine yesterday but couldn't get the driver strut out.

7-8 hours? That seems a bit lengthy. Are they including a 5 hour lunch?

Re: Road Magnet Aggressive Drop

I probably could have had mine done in around 3 hours, but for the life of me I couldn't figure out how to get the strut out on the front. Ended up giving up until I could find more info on how to get it out. Any insight is appreciated.

Re: Road Magnet Aggressive Drop

7-8 hrs is just plane ridiculous for installing springs. Bigcity looking at your pics it looks like everything is unbolted all you have to do is keep that shock assembly from dropping onto everything and push the lower control arm down enough to be able to get the lower forks of the shock to be able to pull out. I tuck myself into a ball and stood/ bounced on the caliper at the same time I pulled the bottom of the assembly off the lower control arm. Just seems like you need to keep the shock up higher instead of letting it fall down in order to give you enough room to get it out

Wish I had stepped back a bit to see the upper portion of the strut, but I would say a around half of the bring assembly was still up inside the upper A-arm even when the strut was in the position shown in the picture so raising it up still provided no room to get it to come over the lower drive line boot. Had a buddy there too and it just never seemed like it was any where near close to having enough room to get the lower forks up and over the lower drive line and out.

Never used my own post as a quote? Here are a couple of photos of the drop on the car with stock wheels and then a couple of the new wheels. Complete vehicle photos will be posted soon.

Thanks! It is something I did with my 2006 Magnum SRT8 and used the same scheme on the Jeep. Doing a little more to the wheels and under the hood this weekend and then I will be post photos of the entire build and will post that link here ASAP.
