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

Just did some research on AL UCA's and everything sounds great and i would love to have those but the price is a little too much for me at the moment given the fact that i just spend over a grand on the springs, shocks and installation. But thanks for the info.

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

No need to change the UCA's. Mine aligned perfectly to spec.

SRT Road Magnet ver.2
SRT Bilsteins in front/QA-1's in the rear w/33mm front and 20mm rear sways

I did cut the front bumpstops in half and also cut the upper rear bumpstops. It rides like a dream even when towing a ski.

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

From the orignal first post.

Quote:
These are the OEM shocks/struts from the awesome Jeep SRT8. They are tuned specifically for the WK platform SRT8. The SRT Bilsteins can only be purchased from an authorized Mopar/Jeep dealer or your local Jeep dealer. These are by far the best shocks and struts for the WK period. These will totally transform a stock WK. I do highly recommend you do not use these with your stock WK springs. Go aftermarket or get the oem Jeep SRT springs. These are a direct bolt on for any WK. Expect to pay upwards of $700 for all four
SRT* OEM Bilsteins part #'s-
5175959AC (2) & 5290641AC (2)
OK, I"m gonna go out on limb here and challenge conventional wisdom...

Aren't the SRT OEM bilstein struts/shocks the same length as the OEM WK shocks? Wouldn't the SRT struts/shocks fit perfectly within the stock wk coils? What am I missing here? Why wouldn't this be recommended?

The SRT OEM Bilsteins are quite a bit shorter than the stock WK front struts/rear shocks. If you did put them on a stock WK coil the preload would destroy the Bilstein as the springs are sized for a longer strut.

The spring and strut/shock work together to give you a nice ride. If one is incorrect the system is not going to work properly and your ride will suffer.

Do them as a package. Any package will fit any WK. Just keep it all SRT or all stock WK size.
