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

Okay, cool. I have the SRT8's now and I'm waiting for my Bilsten's to arrive any day. I'm thinking I want it to sit lower so was looking at the bwoody's but don't want a super rough right. Also, don't want to purchase the eibachs only to see a 1/2" difference, u know? I'll check out the Jeep you mentioned, thanks!

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

the pix above are the SRT8 with bilsteins, I had the bwoody's with bilsteins but the ride was complete crap I had the bwoody version 1, if you dont have the SRT bilsteins it's a bad combo, but if you have the SRT bilsteins then go for the bwoody version 1, or you can always opt for bwoody version 2 where the rear end is stiffer and sits a lil higher.

yeah they are the same, usually those junk yards don't really know what they're talking about so they might say that it's out of a certain car

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

I have the OEM SRT's and I like them much better over the stock WK springs. I think it looks level to me, but can't say for sure. On the front page here it says it drops it 1.25-1.5 inches, and Eibach is a 1.75" drop, however Eibach's product says it's a 1.2" drop from stock. I'm thinking I might just stay with the stock SRT's as they were only $100 and seem fine to me. No need to spend another $275 on Eibach's plus the time to install them.

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

Wussup fellas, does anybody have the srt8 eibach setup here on a wk. I was trying to find some feed back on them as far as ride and stance. Haven't seen anybody mentioning having it, some pictures would be cool too.
