you will love them when you gte them in. I advise a set of springs and the srt or addco front and rear sway bars for an astounding riding/handling WK.

Done deal.


I just made my first long trip in the new jeep, 3.5 hrs 1 way, and i deff noticed the "float" you guys speak of. It was very annoying. I cant wait to get rid of that.

Thumbs up Re: My Impressions of the WK Bilsteins

Installed the rear SRT8 sway yesterday...MONEY! I have driven a lot of SUV's, and it is getting close to a Cayanne Turbo as far as on-road handling, and it poops on the 3 Range Rovers (1996, 2000 and 2002) we've owned! Very impressed by the Jeep product, more so than i thought i would be...

Getting the front Bilsteins installed tomorrow morning, so i will post tomorrow after I pick it up...pretty excited!
