2005 wk non srt8 jeep springs etc question lol

So I have an 05 4.7l grand cherokee I have the srt8 replica's on and wanted to go with the srt8 drop springs. I found out that I would need to replace the front struts with the srt8 stuts then I can use the springs. With that said my 1st question is will I have to get new strut mounts?
2nd. For the rear I have to get the srt8 rear shocks too....but do I have to get the srt8 sway bars or are mine too long?

Thank you very much!

the stock srt springs will only drop you about 1"...so technically you dont have to get the SRT shocks/struts. The SRt sway bars are direct replacements....nothing else needed.

If I get the srt8 lowering springs then would I have to get the srt8 struts and sway bar?

you dont have to...no. But the sway bars will make a HUGE difference in the ride...especially the rear bar
