I don't understand? 'Bud'? And 'not been here long enough'? Sounds more like it's YOU with the problems.

Honestly, we're all grown ups here, how about behaving like it? From both sides, yes, it's helpful to have supportive comments for opinion and builds. But an echo chamber of everyone agreeing doesn't help either. A bit of back and forth is a fine thing.

If I was the one with the problem then I would not still be here. Ive been here almost since the beginning guy. And you have not seen this guy (dsmfun) post very often. So yes, you dont understand. I am very supportive people's mods and yes, I have even told people of better options. The issue with the mentioned user is that on almost every post where he comments on something, it's been negative even if the vast majority has had great experience with what he downplays. Likes to claim that intakes and exhaust do nothing yet I have dyno proof saying otherwise. The man doesn't take into account that everyone is different and builds their rides accordingly.

Again, this comes across more about YOU having the problems not this other guy. We get it, you disagree with his approach, clearly. Let it go.

Clearly you have a problem too if you decided to come at me with your original reply back to me. How bout you back off. And you drop it. So stop taking the thread off topic by coming after me and get back to suspensions. If that's not much of a problem for you then you won't reply back.

This is the last thing I'm gonna say to you on this before I drop it alright? I dont have an issue with you, really I don't. But dont try to step into a 4year plus disagreement between two other people when you dont know the whole story. That's why I said you dont understand. You haven't been around here long enough to see it.

He (dsmfun) has a history of spouting false information about certain mods and has tried to talk people out of a lot of things that actually would help there rides out for what they wanna do. I have an issue with that.

But you make it seem like I have a personal vendetta against the man. I don't. Of If his 16- 1700 post hes made over the last 4 or so years, I've realistically disagreed on about 30. Like I've said before, I'm not the only one who has been on his case about his "view" of things.

So I'll drop it If you do and get this back on track.

Suspensions.

And speaking of which, I've been looking at bc coilovers. Especially now that the price is down around 1k from the 1300 they where at. I love my current setup but I want it lower up front.

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

Can anyone confirm that the original, non SRT, end links can be retained if I install an SRT rear sway bar? The "kit" from Just4Jeep includes end links/brackets, but the (very useful!) post that started this thread states "The SRT endlinks are not necessary on the nonSRT WK.".

Planning on ordering an SRT8 rear bar for my CRD, along with a set of Bilstien 4600's for my 100,000 mile WK, retaining original springs (I'm on a tight budget). Thoughts on this setup? For daily driving road use and occasional light towing. I'm used to a more 'european' ride (former Touareg driver...).

Thanks in advance for any responses!

Yes. I run the srt bar on stock endlinks.

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

Thanks Strongjeff! If I may... a follow up question:

I'm replacing the shocks/struts as well and am thinking of using the Bilstien 5100s so I can lift the front slightly (to level the car front/rear). I'm going to drive it year round in Ontario (lots of brine on the roads in winter)... any knowledge of how they'll hold up to road salt in winter? I'm on a budget so would prefer not to change the springs... plus I think the soft OE springs and tighter Bilstiens will be 'just right' for my taste.

Thanks in advance for any advice!

Cant say for the 51's. I run 46's up front and a stage 6 in the rear. They have held up very well. But im confident that the 51's will do well.

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

Bilsteins
--There are two types of Bilsteins that fit the WK platform

1. WK HD Bilsteins(aftermarket)-strut part #Manufacturer Part #: F4-BE5-D721-H0
shock-Manufacturer Part #: F4-BE5-D722-H0 these are Bilsteins aftermarket replacement shock and strut for the Wk. They fit all WK models and are under $300 for all 4. These IMO are an awesome addition to any WK. Handling is crisp, less "floaty" feel and less bounce when going over bumps etc. Excellent replacement for the stocks struts/shocks! FYI-these will raise your Jeep WK 3/8th's of an inch all around---


Wasent sure on how to box that. New too forum.

My Question :

Are these good for the WK V6 3.7 as well ? ...
On Shockwarehouse website: they also offer - Bilstein 5100 Series Leveling Shock Shock Absorber Jeep Grand Cherokee Front 24-225793

Old Part No: F4-BE5-6929-H1..

Does anyone know if these are HD as well? Would these ride better for WK V6 models ?..

If applicable:
What springs should i match these up with ?..

Why im asking is that "HD" on EMU lifted means only V8 models, or bull bar. They had advised me to go with MD springs and struts for the WK 3.7. And from what ive read in forms the "HD" rides rough on WK V6 models.

The 3.7 does not have the weight on the nose and so does mot need as heavy of a spring rate
