Sorry if this has been covered, but will the eibachs work on the 2014s?

Yes in theory as there's been..no change in suspension

I second MJW thought here. I thought the fronts had a softer spring rate then rears because the rear needed to support towing. By putting the softer fronts on, you will get a lot of bounce and bottoming out which could blow your shocks because they aren't valved to support that spring rate. Just my thoughts coming from a Autocross/Track junkie. I do not own a SRT Jeep yet, but unless someone can explain this to me I think it is a bad idea.

Re: What do you guys think about Eibach front springs on the rear?

have had the stock fronts on the rear with eibach fronts for a couple thousand miles now, no issues or weird bounces. It does not like to hold extra weight though, if I pile in a bunch of stuff it will sag in the back. Never have bottomed out but the fronts are not that stiff in the back. I rarely put anyone back there so its not a big deal, if you tow or have a family in the back all the time id stick with eibach rears

Re: What do you guys think about Eibach front springs on the rear?

Quick question - I have recently purchased the Eibach drop springs for my 2012 Jeep SRT8. I have heard many people purchasing bushings as well to complete the lowering kit. Is this true? Scottina06, I know you have. Which ones did you purchase?

Re: What do you guys think about Eibach front springs on the rear?

Here are pics of my Jeep with Eibachs in the front and the stock fronts in the rear. The Eibach rears were too high so I couldn't stick with them.

The camber is off, I need to get an alignment still and it will be perfect
