Start with sway bars. A cost effective route is to get the sry suspension from salvage.

Re: lowering a jeep wk.

i would go with the srt8 eibachs or the new 1.3 roadmagnet versions. i also would wait until the new upper a-arms are done to get in factory alignment [no inside tire wear]

Re: lowering a jeep wk.

Yeap, SRT Eibachs. I have em and the drop is sick, except all my stock shocks are blown since I never upgraded them. Odd that it still rides good, and amazed I haved broken a spring yet. Lol

Re: lowering a jeep wk.

Can always just cut the springs, hacksaw about two inches off. Should drop it nice.
