When I had the tires installed, I brought it to their attention and they did it for me.

Hope this helps.
You Could Just Install Wheel Spacers & Avoid Cutting Or Shaving Entirely

i have an 05 wk and i have recently installed bwoodys (latest version) with srt bilsteins...i ended yp sitting 1 inch lower in the front and 2 inches lower in the rear. I have a 2wd laredo with the tow package...im extremely pleased with the end result. The alignment came within the specs when aligned to the srt specs. if you can not come within recomended specs you will have to buy the new a arm assembly (these are avalible from a vendor on here) you will have to search threads for name of guy...mabe bigals arms or some shit...pm me if you have any questions...it would be my pleasure to help!

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

Does anyone know if I could get away with buying the 3" OME springs to replace my existing springs for my 2006 jeep grand Cherokee without replacing the shocks or anything else until later? I want to lift it enough to fit 255 or 265 mud terrains. thanks for any input on this matter
