Re: Replacement shocks

06-08 XK Commander Front Springs

06-08 XK Commander Rear Springs

commander front and rear coils... same as the WK. if you have a 4.7 and you snag a set of hemi coils and a set of XK 3rd row seat/tow package coils youll gain a 1/2" or more. also i would suggest replacing the coil spring isolators as well

the bilstein 5100 is adjustable from .75" to 2". the bilstein HD, pending how bad your shocks are worn- will net a solid .5". add in the higher spring rate of the XK hemi coils and some new coil spring isolators- youll get an inch

Re: Replacement shocks

I *think* I've decided to get the 5100's and new isolators. And then once I've decide what to do about wheels and tires replace the coils with OME HD's

careful, the rear 5100s are designed for 2"-4" of lift

well shit god damn! I thought I had my mind made up. I didn't realize they were designed like that. Honestly, sounds like 5100's in the front and HD's in the rear would be ideal for my application. That way down the road when I do decide to lift the jeep can just throw different coils on there and use the 5100's to rid the vehicle of rake. solid plan?

I think you mean 5100s in the rear and HDs up front. Won't work the other way around bc If you plan on putting OME coils in for lift eventually regular bilstein HDs or stockers in the rear won't work. You'll need a longer shock to pair with the OME coil. So youre just wasting money. if you just want cheaper shocks for now. Get the monroe load levelers. Best thing to do though is to just save it all up and go with the Struts Shocks and Coils all at once. Go full OME or OME coils, bilstein 5100s.

Re: Replacement shocks

Has anyone successfully purchased the adjustable 5100 front struts yet I'm trying with not very much luck?

I just got them installed on my 2006 4.7L. Fronts are set to 0.75". I also put the matching rear shocks on as well. The rears are advertised as working with 0-1.5" of lift. I have no lift and put the rears on mine.
