lowering a wj

Hey guys, Im not sure if I want to lower my jeep in the future. I have bilstein shocks on it now. What are good lowering springs for a wj? also the bilstein shocks wont be a problem will they?

Also I guess my main concern against doing it is what I can do with my jeep now. I like being able to drive over stuff and get through thick snow etc. What are you guys experience after you lowered your jeeps?

Eibach has some good lowering springs, those are only ones I have heard of. I believe Hannes (Dreamer) used these.

Don't rush into it. Wait for some more people to chime in and go from there.

H&R makes great springs. Their Sport Springs are about a 2" drop on the WJ.
