Re: Lowered my 2014 JGC Overland today!

Hi CLStech,
I'm just curious why you would want to switch out the springs in place of EiBachs? Are you looking for a lower stance? Thx.

Any confirmation on how much these lower the non SRT WK2s? I can't remember if it was an inch lower all around...

*Nevermind. Answered my own question. 1" lower.

I removed my OEM springs to install the Eibach's to get a little lower. They are advertised to drop .8" front, 1.1" rear (for a stock SRT).

Re: Lowered my 2014 JGC Overland today!

Okay here it is. Eibach told me that they couldn't tell me how my Jeep would look once it was lowered bc they hadn't tested a diesel yet. I figured that it shouldn't make that much of a difference. I couldn't find any weights on the gas vs diesel V6's. It doesn't sit quite like I want it to. Back to the drawing board. I want to get the back down about 2" more. I'll get some better pictures of it. ImageUploadedByJeepGarage1407850146.069189.jpg

Might need to try the road magnets mid level if you need lower. I would give them some time to settle as well.

I'm planning on giving them some settling time. I don't think they'll settle the 2" or so I'd like them to.

What are road magnets?

Road Magnets are another lowering spring company. They get good reviews form the SRT guys. BlackOps can get you a good price

Re: Lowered my 2014 JGC Overland today!

I wish I would've look at that first. The picture they show looks like I want mine to look.

Re: Lowered my 2014 JGC Overland today!

Someone else with a diesel just got theirs lowered on Eibachs and just from the view in your photo (which is a little hard to see how much it dropped honestly), yours looks much higher.

SLY's ECODiesel Build + Need Input!

I'd definitely give it some time or make sure you got the right ones for the standard WK2 and not the SRT. There is a difference.

Re: Lowered my 2014 JGC Overland today!

Mine says not for SRT. I just called Eibach and they told me that the only thing I could do is to remove the kit and sell it as "like new".
