That's strange. I checked last week and they had. They were running a special, so I wonder if they sold out.

A month late, but an answer non the less. If the springs are OEM SRT, you do not need to modify any bump stops.

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

I would definitely get SRT shocks if you're going with SRT drop springs....or BC coilovers .Then you can have any amount of drop you want

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

yeah which i'm sure would be sweet if the shocks weren't like 900 bux lol, figured the srt drops would give me the drop i want since the wk's only give you a inch right?

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

well mine had wk bilsteins and wk eibachs. I cant find the measurements from when I first did it, but after I put on new lca's(which raised it) the front was @
18 1/2"L and 18 3/4" R
with the rear @
18 3/8" L and 18 3/4 R

I then cut 1/2 coil off the fronts and that put it @
17 7/8" L and 18 1/8" R

Its all preference of course, but the BC's aren't too bad @ about a grand for all the shocks,struts, & springs. you might get SRT bilsteins and drop springs a little cheaper, but not by too much if they are new, and the BC's can change with your mood If I had kept mine I most likely would have had 'em this summer

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

I put the springs/ bilsteins on about 2yrs ago, no idea where the stock measurements are.

at first I couldn't tell it was lowered (by looking),but when I came out of a store one day a stock one was parked right next to it ..... then I could tell .

they can be proud huh?

Well, I'll be the 1st to admit I would've been happier with the SRT's, however I really like to "push" my rides........ I've run my XJ on a road course against cars that were supposed to be there () without being embarrassed and even passing some of them

Don't get me wrong, it rode nice enough..., but if you like to "drive hard" you'll be happier with better stuff.
what type /size wheels n tires are you gonna run? the wk bilstiens had a hard time keeping the 22's in check (for me ) on rough roads, they had about 30k on them though.
