Can a couple of WK owners post their suspension height for me?

here are my current suspension heights, from ground to bottom of the fender or quarter panel. My front is a bit over 32" while the rear is bit over 33.5".

Can a few of you tell me your stock WK heights?

Re: Can a couple of WK owners post their suspension height for me?

measure from the center of the hub to the fender. It'll be a more accurate measurement going from Jeep to Jeep as tire pressure wont affect the numbers.

Exactly.
And obviously its a usably comparable measurement regardless of tire size or brand.

Re: Can a couple of WK owners post their suspension height for me?

I re-did my measurements from the center of the hub to the lip of fender. I just did the drivers side due to limited garage space. The front was 18.25" and the rear was 19.75", so I need 1.5" added to the front to level it off, whether I measure from the ground or from the hub.

Anyone know how much the rear would drop with SRT springs?

Re: Can a couple of WK owners post their suspension height for me?

yeah, I'd like to make it level. So I either drop the rear or raise the front. I'm leaning toward raising the front and giving me a bit more ground clearance.

Re: Can a couple of WK owners post their suspension height for me?

Can some of you post some more height measurements?

Center of wheel to fender.

And post your suspension mods.
