those are the spc ball joints and from what im told by the SRt guys...they are the same as the eibachs and they will come in contact with the front suspension

FYI-the Eibach adjustable ball joints dont work on the SRT suspension. They come in contact with the front strut tower. Ask me about the $150 mistake+install that I made.....LOL
Hey Scott can you tell me about your $150 mistake

Oh shiznit me didn't know that either ... I'll have to go back and get it aligned according to that ... Now does it only have to be aligned to SRT specs with SRT bilsteins or just the bwoodys?

Re: bwoodys and str bilstein alignment issues

Has anyone tried these? I'm waiting for them to come out with a stock replacement for my 4" (they make the SRT-8 ones and ones for lifts that do not use a new hub)

Re: BWoodys and SRT Bilstein alignment issues

Jeepin by Al is supposed to come out w/ new upper A-arms for the srt8 from what I remember hearing on the other forum.... the ones he has now are for lifted. Unless those ones you posted are his brand new ones for lowered srt8s then they just came out. I know there's been problems w/ lowering the srts I still have a set of eibachs Im waiting to put on my srt8 once there is a solution for the problem w/ them bottoming out....

Yes, the ones I posted are for lowered WK's, they just became available on his site.

click pic:


They are expensive, but actually about the same price as both factory A-arms from Jeep. For the strength, ability to replace the ball joint, and the fact that they will allow you to get the front end back in spec, I think they are well worth it. But that's coming from an offroad guy.
