Re: What's the big deal over Bilsteins??

So if I install some blisteins with new stock springs will that lower my jeep 3/8" or lift it 3/8"? I have read both and really confused about it.

Crestwood1001 is an unknown quantity at this point
They will provide 3/8ths of an inch of LIFT

Re: What's the big deal over Bilsteins??

Thanks for all the info, but I decided to go without the Bilsteins for now. Got to the shop and when they got the WK in the air they noticed I needed two front tires which turned into a whole set once it was all said and done - couldn't justify also spending money on shocks. Love the new look and it rides really nice. In fact, I really could not tell a difference in the ride quality except that it is not quite as "floaty" anymore. Can't wait to get the SRT sway bar installed once it comes in.

Oh, and I just happened to have a blown seal on the driver's side strut - called my dealer to let them know what I was doing and they said bring it in next week and they will replace it under warranty.

Will post pics once I give her a bath!

Re: What's the big deal over Bilsteins??

Thanks for the answers guys. Are the blisteins and stock springs a good set up? Im sure ifnew tires are installed around the same time that it will feel like a brand new Jeep.
