Re: lowering a wj

I am lifted, but I will say this,,,

the handling/body roll control does not come mostly from the height (i.e. center of gravity), but rather spring rates, shock choice, and sway bar rigidity.

I sit on avg about 4" taller than the average stock height WJ, and I can safely take corners that would skeer you sh*tless in a stocker....

If you like the current height, what you can do is run the drop springs, and throw a set of coil spacers on top of it to get the increased spring rates AND maintain OEM height...I almost considered doing this on my WJ. This keeps everything in check too, in theory if you change the suspension height you should adjust the trackbar length, etc.
