Alright gents i need help

I'm driving today and slowly but surly I'm starting to feel the jeep TOO bumpy... I'm at 80,000 miles on the same suspension... I'm guessing its time to spice it up any recommendations? Websites, stores, etc....?

Re: Alright gents i need help

Are you wanting more of an offroad suspension or a street suspension?

Re: Alright gents i need help

Id say leave the stock height springs and just go with bilstein shocks. Everyone under the sun has them and love them. Maybe even go with some SRT springs or even Eibach lowering spring that will drop the front about an inch and the back close to an inch and a half. Should still have plenty of ground clearance but give it a sportier stance. Also upgrade to some Addco sway bars or even the SRT sway bars.

I think I might just leave the stock springs cause I love the height on it already so maybe get the new shocks cause it's bugging me the ride is getting rough not like 3 years ago still smooth lol

Re: Alright gents i need help

r1 concepts for brakes

shox.com, shockswarehouse.com, ebay.com for the bilsteins. Also do a google search as there may be a site running a special on them.
