New to forum, bilstein question

I have a 2005 WK, and installed Bilstein shocks a few years back. I've always been bothered by the adjusted ride height, about 1" higher than stock shock and struts. Any recommendations on getting the truck back to almost stock height. New Coils or should I install SRT Bilsteins?

srt bilsteins and srt springs will drop you an inch from your stock height. srt springs with the bilsteins you have will put you around stock height.

Re: New to forum, bilstein question

WK Bilsteins are 3/8" higher ride. Your options pretty much are monroe (not the load levelers) which is close to stock ride or mopar. If you want stock height. If you wanted avoid springs of course. But once you have ridden with the bilsteins you are going to notice the ride difference switching back to stock. Do you have bilstein struts and shocks?
