First thing first. I live in the country and the roads around here are tar and chip barely better than dirt nightmares. My first drive was a little unsettling in the fact that I have been trapped in my big old Bonneville since October.The wj seemed a bit choppy and stiff on these back roads.I was a little concerned because I had heard Bilsteins are sometimes known for a stiff ride.You have to remember that I also have higher rate Rusty's springs on there.I believe it's
more me having Jeep withdrawal than anything else.Once I got out on the highway though my concerns quickly vanished. Gone is that dreaded front corner dive that happens when you have to make a quick turn maneuver while at speed and also gone is that rear end wallow that I hated so much about the WJ. Kinda feels like a sports car now.What I've found out over my many years messing with [email protected]
is that everything you do is a compromise and you have to give a little to get a little and I really didn't sacrifice that much. Don't get me wrong the rough stuff ride isn't awful its just different and I wish I would have done this years ago. Also the purpose of most of my suspension upgrade was to have a stable vehicle when towing a #6000 camper and in this area a great victory has been achieved.
