Do your Eibachs look like this?

Im curious, I bought a set of used Eibachs for my WK but now im really thinking they are the srt Eibachs. My WK sits really low now, was up against an srt8 last week and mine is def lower. I luv it, but im just curious how peoples WK's sit with WK Eibachs compaired to mine.



Shot of front passenger spring on level ground. The top coils are already compressed.



Another shot, dont mind the leaky strut.



31" from level ground to bottom of fender. Pretty decent drop.





Picture taken before Eibachs installed on the same road.





Holy hell my WK looked jacked up in the rear before, and I hated it.

Re: Do your Eibachs look like this?

It looks great! I'd guess that those are SRT Eibachs. Are both struts leaking?

I don't know but damn that sits beautifully. I've always liked the way your WK looks but just wow.

Just the passenger side, I noticed a big oil stain on my concrete driveway last sunday, after a road trip to Rhode Island the day before. I remember hitting a big bump on the highway where they were doing construction at a bridge.

Here is the stain I noticed, its pretty big.



Scott is hooking me up by sending me his WK struts which im grateful for. Now i just need to go slower and watch out for things like that, its not a "4x4" anymore. Lol.

Thanks for the compliment, I really appreciate it. I have spent hours and hours just staring and thinking what I can do and then modding it trying to make it stand out and look the best I can.

Re: Do your Eibachs look like this?

I think you could improve it by changing to the limited's rear bumper. Just a thought

I actually luv comments like that, what people think I can do to "upgrade". I do like the chrome strip on the rear bumper, but keep in mind i have the laredo and no chrome door or window moldings, so that wouldnt really match. If anything I was thinking rear srt bumper, and 09 front bumper(which includes $$$ swapping grill ad headlights) or doing 06 srt front bumper.

Anyone else with ideas, please, pick apart my WK and let me know your thoughts. Im open for any ideas at this point. You guys are the best, always great advice.

Re: Do your Eibachs look like this?

Were there any part numbers on the springs?

That does look like lowered SRT height.

I will try and give my best discription of it. With these Eibachs in now there is little to no "body roll" I call it going around highway on and off ramps, the Jeep seems to stay level but I can tell all the stress is now directed on the tires. (which is prob to be expected). Before with the stock springs i'd be on the highway, hit a bump and the Jeep seemed to go up and down 3-4 times before settling, now with these Eibachs the Jeep hardly moves, going up once but then quickly settling and staying there. These springs are very stiff, I actually stood on the rear bumper trying to make the rear end go up and down but it hardly moves.

As the pix above show, the eibach springs are already compressed so there is little movement. When i go over bigger bumps I feel it, kinda like I ran over a brick in the road, but smoother bumps the springs absorb it and dont even notice.

Basically the roads here in Massachusetts blow and I will def ruin my rims or suspension if I am not always aware of the road conditions now. Right in downtown there are still the old cobblestone roads which I cant go over more than 5 mph now or im being bounced around or feels like my rim is bottoming out. But IMO these eibachs I have are prob the best lowering springs to get, basing from what I see daily with other lowered vehicles where they obviously just cut the stock springs and the car goes up and down like a boat. Now I can forget about ever taking my Jeep offroad, with these springs i feel i will def blow a shock out going too fast over a bigger bump. But then again I never plan on taking my bitch offroad.

No part numbers or any paperwork. I bought them from jeepaholic when I posted a "want to buy" thread for lowering springs. They came nicely packed in there own seperate boxes packed in one big box. And I luv them and def glad I found such a great deal and got sent what I have. I have to say when I first talked to jeepaholic about buying them I asked if I was able to return them if they happened to not be the correct springs to fit and he said no problem, so I would def buy something from him again since he is 100% for real and legit.

Oh, and I just noticed on J4J they now list the rear srt sway bar seperate, 82 bucks and bushings another 10 bucks for the pair. That is my next suspension mod, can only dream how my Jeep will take corners after installing that.

I think I might of had something to do with it, I emailed them asking if they will price match other web sites prices for just the sway bar. hehe. J4J=awesome!!

Re: Do your Eibachs look like this?

well since your ok with it I'd say since I think the old front bumper looks fine, you should get the chrome molding on the side or smoothe out the one you have and paint it black. And if you did get the limited's bumper I was going to say go ahead and paint the rear crome body color (not just black lol). Oh and a wing wouldn't hurt either.
