If the kit was purchsed new 6 months ago would it have included the fix (upgraded Eibach bumpstops?). Another option is i convince the seller to sell me the stock SRT8 springs, cause he has BC Racing coilovers in his SRT8 now

They'll be going on a '08 Overland Diesel with new Bilstein 4600's.

And will the drop "require" any other parts? Besides an alingment I'm assuming.
I run the eibachs post fix and they have been fine for me

Ok great thanks for the quick reply! Do you know if it was just a bumpstop issue or something to do with the springs before a certain date?

I think it was an updated bumpstop

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

Happy 1000th post!

Heres an 08 Overland CRD with stock front shocks and springs before, and after with SRT8 Eibachs and SRT8 Bilsteins (REAR ONLY). Just wanted to see what it looks like levelled out. The used set of springs i picked up included the stock SRT8 shocks which are well used and is only temporary. One of the front struts is blown so not even gonna bother putting the front in until new shocks. I just cut the stock bump stops down about 2"+, then cross hatched the face of it with a zip disc, just for comfort in case it hits
After pic was taken after a quick drive around the block to settle it. Its a bit quirky obiously having mis-matched springs/shocks but that'll be taken care of soon enough. As well as installing the OEM 07 SRT8 polished 5-spokes and sourcing a beefier rear sway bar and new end link bushings. I can't really decide on whether to upgrade the front sway bar, i think theres only a 1mm diameter difference between SRT8 and non versions, i know the SRT8's are solid instead of a tube but dont really see a tonne of flex difference being obtained. Maybe just new Sway bar and end link bushings for the front
