Re: Lowering the Wife's GC

Listen to Scott...he knows his ish straight up! And IMHO I agree that your wife will not like a 2"++ drop on a WK, unless she enjoys football and top-fuel drag racing

it will be about the same. I agree...there should be a drop spring between the bwoody and the eibach/h&r's. I thnk the SRt stock springs were just a tad lower than the eibachs.

I actually had the WK bilsteins and eibachs and the ride was only about 3/4" lower than stock. Then I went to the SRt Bilsteins and eibachs and I was about 1.25 lower than stock. The SRT Bilsteins and stock SRT springs were about 1.5 lower than stock WK suspension height.

Re: Lowering the Wife's GC

This is my Jeep with WK Bilstiens & Eibach Lowering Springs which lowered the Jeep about 1 inch.

But if you just install the Eibach Lowering Spring and keep the stock shock, that should bring you down a bit more.

Re: Lowering the Wife's GC

I forgot all about that.... the stock shocks can be used with the eibach springs huh...

What about the compression? Wont the shocks be compressed too much? Or is that only if you use the bwoody springs with stock shocks?

Can I use the srt springs with our stock shocks or is that a no no?

yeah...the bwoodys are a little extreme

the srt springs should be fine with the stocks shocks/struts...but may wear them prematurely.

Re: Lowering the Wife's GC

Thanks scott. Looks like i might be looking for some srt springs.

Out of curiosity which spring do you think preforms better? The SRT or the Eibach? The drop is not really too much different but if the eibachs are going to perform better than the stocks or the other way around it could sway my decision.

Re: Lowering the Wife's GC

I should just be able to pop these in and get the alignment done right? Nothin else needed?
