Thanks for your advice. I am leaning toward the RM's, but they are so pricey, plus if we want them in black, it is then more. I may just go for the eibachs. Anyone have an idea of the drop variance between the RM#2's and the WK Eibachs?

I ordered mine from Tire Rack and it tells you what the drop is on there if you put in a SRT8 as your vehicle and purchase them as such. I think I paid like $245 for mine and I had them in 2 days. Just don't use the spacer they give you for the rear bumb stop.

Cool, thanks. Is not using the spacer reduce bottoming out?

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

Yes, I didn't use it and I personally don't know how it would even fit in there. I have not bottoming out issues what-so-ever!

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

when I had my oem bumpstops...I trimmed about 1-1.5" off of them. I have the energy suspension bumps now...that are shorter and a better material.

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

Hi Guys

I need some help please...
I just finished installing all four Bilstein shocks on my ride (a 2006 WK Overland CRD), but now I'm getting "Service 4WD System" on my EVIC, and the ESP and ABS lights stay on. To install the shock I did everything according to the service manual, except for removing the rotors. Any ideas?

P.S. The car rides so much better now with the Bilsteins and the SRT swaybars that I installed previously!

Cheers

Check your ABS sensor wires. If one got damaged that might cause it, the esp uses the abs system

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

I currently have the rear SRT sway bar and B-woody links and want to get the front SRT bar. I Just need to verify with someone who has recently added one to a WK, do I just need the bar and front bushings, or do I also need the front SRT brackets ? I have read conflicting information on this, as some said the stock WK brackets work, while Justforjeeps says I need to buy the SRT brackets and bushings.

I was able to reuse the stock brackets AND bushings in the front when i switched to the SRT sway bar.

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

OK, but I have over 60k on the stock bushings and want to install new ones, so is the SRT bar exactly the same diameter, so new WK bushings will work with the SRT bar and the stock WK brackets ?

Hi

I installed the front sway bar last weekend, and used the srt8 bushings, but the wk bushings work as well. The diameter is exactly the same...
