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

What about staying with stock springs w/ Bilsteins and using a bigger tire? Say 265/50/20 along with rear SRT sway bar. Does anybody have experience with that? Love this app. THX Chooch

I have WK Bilsteins & Eibach SRT8 Pro-Kit (which are lower than the SRT OEM springs) and they do not bottom out. I will say that the WK Bilsteins are a tad over pressurized for my liking, but I only encounter the over pressurized situation about 10-15% of the time if at all, while driving. Next year, I will look into spending the $$$ on SRT8 Bilsteins (hopefully I can run across someone I know that gets a discount and/or something of that sort).
