Slamming a WJ to the ground

Hey guys I have a 2000 WJ 4.7 and I am about to do the Eibach lowering springs which takes it down 1" and 1.3" in the back. That's good and all but I want to go lower. Where do I look to go? What parts do I replace to get it even lower? This is my first time lowering a car myself and I just want to make sure I do it right.

Thanks for your help!!
Mikey

Re: Slamming a WJ to the ground

You really cannot go much lower. At stock height the gap between in the bumpstop is already close, and adding the lowering kit makes it extremely close. So really the eibachs are about as low as you can go without doing MAJOR modifications.

Does it make a difference what axles I'm sitting on?

Re: Slamming a WJ to the ground

Not really. Like I said, you would have to do ALOT of work to get it really low. It would all have to be 1 off custom work too which would get very expensive.

Re: Slamming a WJ to the ground

TYPICALLY you need to do a 2WD conversion. Then modify the inner wheelwell to allow for more travel of the upper control arm. As it is you only have a couple inches of travel before the upper arm physically hits the sheetmetal of the inner fenderwell.

Front wheel drive cars and ifs trucks are your best bet for street mowing.
