Re: Sitting on New H&R Springs

Yea I was affraid the ride would be to stiff since its an everyday driver. Put new rancho ultra's on, ride is perfect not to stiff drags a little over big speed bumps but have only driven from the shop back to work.

Re: Sitting on New H&R Springs

Is it the angle of your photo or do they not "level out" the rear end?

i have had BOTH H&R then recently went to the SRT8 Eibachs.

H&R leaves about an inch in the front and rear HOWEVER there is very little noticeable in ride difference from stock. I ran the H&R with WK bilsteins it RODE PERFECT.


BUT I WANTED MORE......so
I recently switched to the SRT8 Eibachs. In front I still have my WK bilsteins; in rear i have the SRT8 QA1 adjustables.

The ride is definitely sacrficed lots. I have the rears on 6 out of 20 setting and I have not bottomed out or slammed the rear. I have banged 2-3 times in the front and a few other near bangs. Also with the limited travel there is a small BOP; its much better with the QA1 but still not perfect.

I MAY try to take my front H&R and cut one coil off.

Re: Sitting on New H&R Springs

Thanks ya'll...Jeep looks great man! I wanted to buy a WK that already had the H&Rs on it but had a Jeep to trade in and missed it. It looked perfect. I bet yours settles in a bit.

NEWB ALERT - What the heck are WK Bilsteins (I know what Bilsteins are...)? Stock shocks?

Re: Sitting on New H&R Springs

Bilsteins are upgraded Shocks/Struts for our Jeeps. Look in the Suspension Section.
