What's left?

Last fall, I added Bilstien HD's to all four corners, new spring isolators, and new Moog UCA's. The ride was greatly improved and now I'm ready to finish it off.

My plan is to add at least a rear sway and front lower control arms. I can't decide on the front sway bar, springs, or end links.

so my questions are:

Addco or SRT sways?(Quadratec says the new Addco bushings don't require lubrication?) Could I do rear Addco and front SRT?

Do I need front and rear sway bars or will just the rear suffice?

I'm thinking Hemi XK springs, how much lift will that give me?

It'll be Bwoody for the end links if I get any, but should I add their rear LCA's, too?

Anything else that would top off an updated suspension?

I actually have a really good deal on the Addco bars. If the front bar is worth the hassle, I'm just going to the pair.

Re: What's left?

sounds like you and i are on the same path.. i have the hemi XK springs front and rear witing to be installed. i have the front srt sway bar and the rear addco bar. im replacing my shocks with another set of bilstein HDs and ditching my BB. im also throwing a JBA strut spacer up front to level out the ride height with the rear. im think with hemi XK springs- your gain in lift will be minimal, maybe less than a 1/2". im thinking since i have the 4.7 ill gain at least a 1/2" maybe more off the higher spring rate and difference in weight between the 5.7 and the 4.7.

how many miles are on your WK? why all the replacement of CA's?

Re: What's left?

How do you like that sway bar setup?

As for the CA's, all of the ball joints and bushings are going bad. Rather than paying for them to be pulled and pressed, I'm doing all new arms with the ball joint included. It actually came out cheaper for me because my install guy charges dirt cheap so I just get parts from rock auto. It could also be for a lift later this year but I haven't decided that.

With the total lift from springs and shocks/struts, I'm hoping to fit a 275/50/20 in the wheel wells.

Have you looked at or heard of TJM Equipped lift springs? Has anyone tried them? just another thought
