wk suspension drop/tire fitment..and more

Hey everyone, new to the site and need some info/advice. My 8th and current jeep is an 07 wk 4.7, (hence the creative username). In the past i have either left my truck mostly stock or lifted them. After feeling the need for a little more out of my commute i have decided to head towards handling, braking, and power in that order. First question, i just installed a set of Yokohama geolander at 245/65/17 3 months ago, winters here in ny can get a bit crazy and id like to keep these wheels/tires as my winter set, how much lower if at all, can i go while still using this combo without rubbing? Next, addco sways, who has used them?, reviews? Next, brakes...has anyone used the PowerStop rotor/pad set? Reviews? And finally...power, b/c of the lack of power addons, leaning toward a 5.7 hemi crate swap...i have seen a few threads with people talking about it, has anyone been successful?
P.s, in regards to the wheels i want to use for other 3 seasons...22" viper replicas...or what other recommended sizes.
....the site is great BTW a ton of useful info, and advice!

Thanks!

give this thread a look

But with stock size like that...you can slam your WK on Bwoodys!

I had a front addco sway bar and the fitament was terrible. I suggest the SRT sway bars from justforjeeps.com. use coupon code jeepgarage5 for 5% more off. All you need are the bars and bushings/brackets.

Powerstop makes really good rotors...but stay away from their pads. Try the Wagner thermoquiets or Bendix.

A 5.7 swap is very possible...but gonna be a little expensive.

Theres the 22" viper and SRt replicas....both are sick on the wk. factory reproductions in the vendors forums can hep you there.

Thanks Scott!,
Sounds like Bwoodys it will be and im going to call dealer about srt bilsteins tomorrow. Think sways will be first...any other bushings i should pick up at dealer before i put the truck on a lift? And after the Bwoodys/bilsteins what tire sizes will fit 20" and/or 22" wheels....going with staggered 9" and 10" width? And not needed anytime soon, but given i have a mild 5.7 hemi, what else is needed/or reusable...i know tranny/drivetrain is good but harnesses? Computer? And has anyone done the swap that you can put me in touch with?
Once again, thanks for your advice and fast response!
