Re: The complete (05-09) WK Grand Cherokee suspension thread

So would you say the BWoody springs are worth the extra $100 over the Eibachs? I finally get paid tommorow and will have something ordered by Sat hopefully.

Re: The complete (05-09) WK Grand Cherokee suspension thread

Reason why i ordered the bwoody over the Eibachs

1. Everyone has the eibachs
2.bwoodys give the most drop
3.Comes with free powdercoating right now
4. They are a cool company and nice dudes, so why not support them
5. They come with the upgraded bump stops to prevent bottoming out
(not sure about the eibachs on that but yeah)

Re: The complete (05-09) WK Grand Cherokee suspension thread

Road Magnet Springs Update -- Same ones that bwoody sells

use coupon code AM1009 ($35.00 off whole order) with road magnet and free shipping or talk to Keith (very pleasant person to deal with)

THEY INCLUDE THE BUMP STOPS FOR THE REAR

total comes out $345.00

only downfall it comes in one color the BLUE (IMO no one is going to see it so who cares or just do it urself for real cheap)

Re: The complete (05-09) WK Grand Cherokee suspension thread

I added that becasue some people may want a custom color and $30-40 for custom powdercoating is a STEAL

This is also what I have heard from Bwoody, so who knows if they are close to the same or not.

Mike said that road magnet engineers called them to discuss the bottoming out issue and mike was having problems in the past with them taking the design and they since stopped.

Either way, i cannot wait to start seeing the summer mods coming. Jeeps look so good with the wheel wells filled

Re: The complete (05-09) WK Grand Cherokee suspension thread

Keith at Road Magnet stated that the bump stops they provide should be sufficient.

This would be a good testing ground - yours with the bwoody and mine from road magnet ... we can post results here so Scott can edit the first post
