Get the springs directly from roadmagnet.com also google road magnet coupon and there is a mazda coupon that'll give you extra $30 off or something like that

Version 1 is the SRT8 version 1, are you looking for the most extreme drop? The version 2 has stiffer back springs and the bottoming out issue isn't as extreme

if you're gonna get the version 1 make sure you get the SRT8 bilsteins or else the WK Bilsteins will bottom out

Is that the exact web URL you used as I can't get their site at all? It just goes to customcar?

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

Hi, I'm new here and I just purchased a 06 WK with the hemi with the intension of making a srt8 clone. I plan on towing my 20' ski boat which weighs about 3500lbs including the trailer. Will I be ok as far as not damaging anything? I'm guessing i'll be riding on the bump stops?
thanks,
Craig

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

Hey Scot,
I have an "export" (CA.) WK, I think I read in a post here that export models have a solid front sway bar as opposed to a hollow bar the US models have. and the solid export bar is the same as the SRT bar...is this correct?

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

Trying to workout if I have stock suspension or not or even if Aussie spec ones come with Up Country suspension like the XJ's did?
I have 33.5" from ground through the middle of the wheel to underside of guard with stock Limited tyres. From the centre of the wheel to the underside of the wheel arch I have 495 mm or 19.5".
Is this stock? What is yours if you know how much your lift is even.
Mine might be a little high now with the seats out, doors off and no hood, but I was standing in the door way and it only dropped it about 1/4" down to that measurement. My 6'3" frame would be about the same as the two doors off one side I think?
