question about lowering suspension.........

currently on my 08' limited wk ......i have bwoddy lowering springs with bilteins all around and addco sway bars. i was wondering what i would have to do in order to have the truck sit an inch lower? any other springs out there or what about cutting the springs??? is that doable and safe? i use the stock 18x7.5 wheels for the winter and srt8 replicas for the summer ....

Re: question about lowering suspension.........

do you have the srt8 specific bilstein shocks/struts? if not get them .. they're shorter than the standard wk bilstein shocks but I'm not sure if it'll sit a whole 1" shorter

Remember when Jeep was synonymous with offroading?
