they bottom out if you have the wk bilsteins........LOL

Re: The complete (05-10) WK Grand Cherokee suspension thread

My setup will be installed tomorrow.
Front Bilsteins (SRT8) and Roadmagnets (SRT8 version 2).

I'll let you all know how it goes and review after.

on the rear remove the shocks, then remove the springs, install springsand then install shocks. Do rear sway bar and link next.
On the front the front suspension on the WK its pretty much a coilover suspension set up...so youll remove the strut and spring at the same time. Then follow with the swaay bar and links
