Re: new suspension option....who's interested?

Some updating here....
The kit will be developed and manufactured by ridetech, www.ridetech.com. The person that I am working with is Tony, he said that we can email him directly with any questions. His email address is tony at ridetech.com
I am also sending him a link to this thread and he said that he would come over and reply in the thread as well.
Again, it will be a bolt in kit.
As for timeframe....as stated earlier, they need my Jeep for 2 weeks. After that, the initial estimate is 30-60 days before the production kits are ready. This is not a firm number as it depends on what type of brackets need to be made.
Pricing is still be discussed but I will let everyone know as soon as I do.
Well, that's all I have for now.....just want to keep everyone in the loop.

As for "turn around" time, they'll need my Jeep for about 2 weeks. After that, most of everything is made in house, so not much time to make stuff.
As for pricing, I can't make any quotes until I talk to them again on Monday or Tuesday next week.
Just to give you an idea, before anything got taken apart, they would do a full road test with my jeep on some varying road conditions (smooth to very crappy) with an electronic ride monitor (same device used by car manufacturers), weigh the Jeep on 4 corner scales, measure the spring rate of the existing springs, and some other tests.
They also perform the same tests after to verify the setup. Their focus is on improving ride quality and handling, not just laying it out.
When I was there, they were under and around my Jeep for 2 hours taking measurements and looking at how / where to mount things. So it's a serious project.

Re: new suspension option....who's interested?

Hey guys, going to be calling the peoples at ridetech, hope to have some more details this afternoon.
I know it was asked elsewhere, but they do offer a system that has 3 presets you can program for different ride heights.

hmmm interesting........but how would that work, i thought you needed an alignment everytime you raised or lowered your height? I think i may ditch the k-sport plan and lean toward this direction.......could you pm me an estimate of the price?

Re: new suspension option....who's interested?

This is the link to the kit I have been looking into, http://www.airbagit.com/product-p/fbs-jee-08-kit3.htm, I have spoken with a representative from the company who says that this kit should be compatible with my 05 WK, but have been on the fence about ordering it...

Re: new suspension option....who's interested?

Hey guys, sorry for the delay in updates. We've been playing phone tag about the whole setup for the Jeep. He is out of the office at a show this week and will be back in on Monday.
Still in process, just schedules aren't cooperating right now.
