What struts to get in front and rear with 20" wheels?

Ok, so got my WK with 20" wheels they are decent but now that I placed 255/45/R20 the truck seems to have had a lift!!

So I would like to know what will be the best fit for my tire size!

I bought some SRT8 springs from a guy that replaced his with eichbachs, he said it was a tough job to replace after he learned that the eichbachs were too bouncy and just wanted to get rid of them because he was not gonna do the whole job again.

Lucky me, picked them up for 80$

I have a stock set up and not an SRT8, just a regular V6 Laredo and my 2005 has been ready for a suspension upgrade after 145k!

Looking to get bilsteins with the maximum available drop with good handling.

any help will be appreciated!

Thanks

Re: What struts to get in front and rear with 20" wheels?

the bilsteins will make a HUGE difference. The max drop spring is the Bwoody springs. Look at my red Jeep...I have the bwoodys. The are very extreme...I must warn you. My truck handles like on rails. I have SRT Bilsteins front, stage 6 QA1 18 way adjustable shocks in the rear, both SRT sway bars and bwoody sway links.
