Call me crazy but I actually like how the rear doesnt hardly move. It does hit somewhat hard going over larger bumps on the highway and i get jounced a bit, but i like how its tight. When I went off road I was really bounced around because I think the lowering springs have such a high compression rate. My car hardly travels up and down now and luv it, sticks to the road. Theres a highway off ramp i always take, and each time I try to take it faster and faster, so far i got it going 55mph and with hardly any body roll, if thats what you call it. The car seems to stay flat.

If anything I want to get the srt rear sway bar like you recommended in the suspension thread, I can only imagine how great it would handle after that.

The roads here in MA blow, but in Maine over the weekend there highways are nice and repaved and it was awesome.

Re: Do your Eibachs look like this?

Hey, if there's enough people from the "Boston" area, even in NH we should all set something up sometime to meet up.

If you mean me i am sure we can get together at some point.

The jeep looks great. Have you put the Stillens on yet? Any pics?

I hate how my jeep "Floats" over bumps on the Highway. I usually cruise at 75ish and its annoying going over bumps like that. But i still need the stock ride height because i drive alot of country roads. Scott told me that buying the Bilstein Struts and rear shocks should get rid of that "float" that i get one the highway. Then i want SRT sways.

Yup, I meant you. Lol.

I am actually back and forth in the basement sanding the stillens right now then prime and paint. I wasnt able to get the PXR black at a local store so I got black metallic and see how that looks. With these srt eibachs the car goes up once but then quickly settles and stays down. Its tight. But I did take it off rad last weekend camping and i was being thrown around, so def not good even on dirt roads.

I did them with my cousin on a saturday in my driveway. It was actually easy. I needed a compressor I got off ebay for removing the front springs but the eibachs are shorter a compressor wasnt needed, the strut nut fits right on. I had a hard time getting the rear shock bolts out, so i just used the compressor again to remove the stock springs and mount the eibachs. That was a good 12 hour day, but stopped to drink and cook on the grill. Plus im alot better at it now that ive done it before. Then 2 weekends back I swapped out a front blown strut by myself in my driveway. Took about 2 hours.
