You still are stock in that department? Youll notice a HUGE difference, you should be pretty excited about it.

That is the main reason I went with the srt shocks instead of replacement wk's... My ride is stiff, and after I moved an exhaust bolt, doesnt bottom out as much. ( it was hitting the bolt, making a crazy noise, making me think i was bottoming out, I still had like 3 inches of travel left)

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

Ride is awesome and it looks a lot better too now!

Stock height with towing package (measured from hub center to fender)
Front: 18.5
Rear: 19.5

Lowered height with SRT8 version 2 Roadmagnets, SRT8 Bilsteins (measured from hub center to fender)
Front: 17
Rear: 17 1/4

Only drove it for an hour or so after the drop so she should settle in a bit more.

They will be lifted ones though. Pity OME are not working on lowered ones as I live walking distance from the ARB factory and my niece works there in sales so I get a staff discount!

Nice where can i get the SRT8 version 2 Roadmagnets springs?, also i was looking nice shocks for the rear they are the Monroe Sensa-trac 58646, they claim to dont make aeration, and i think for a jeep 2WD like mine i think tell will keep the tires stick to the groud helped by the spring that wears, i look likes a coilover, from all that i see are just shocks would be a benefit with the extra spring? They can be friendly with the roadmagnets springs? because i will buy one set of roadmagnets.

Road Magnets are here:

Those shocks look excellent and it says it's load adjustable. I have not used the Monroe Sensa-trac 58646, but Monroe does make a nice product.
