Those are stock SRT8 springs with WK (non-srt8) Bilsteins.. perfect combination to me, not to low, not to high..
I just ordered that set up.... Hope to have it installed in a week or two.....very excited... thanks for the advice Fabian..... I'll take some pics when it is done...

Re: SRT8 springs with WK Bilsteins.

I guess this is the way for me to go...either these or the RM II's!

Re: SRT8 springs with WK Bilsteins.

I don't wanna huge drop... just more looking to stiffen up the rear end to stop the tire rub issues under load. So Fabian's set up will probably do the trick for me from everything I have read on this site.

Re: SRT8 springs with WK Bilsteins.

I need to fix my suspension badly! I'm literally bouncing everywhere when I hit a bump! I'm going to order Bilsteins before winter time. I can't have a huge drop due to snow and such.....

Re: SRT8 springs with WK Bilsteins.

My Bilstein Struts/shocks from ALLShock.com showed up via UPS last night. Now, the OEM SRT springs will be here after labour day.... then it will be install time!!!!!

Re: SRT8 springs with WK Bilsteins.

Once I get my wheels on I am going to decide on springs...but the WK Bilsteins are sure an improvement over stock, should totally help you out Paul!

I got the idea from Fabian... but if that response was for me, sorry, I am not Paul. I am Bernie though....

Re: SRT8 springs with WK Bilsteins.

I am getting the springs and the bilsteins installed at the dealer on Monday!... I will take pics before and after re ride height etc. Have a friend at the dealer and got a break on the labour rate. Looking forward to seeing (feeling) the difference... and of course hoping this is a solution to the tire rub issues under load.

I was advising Paul (Chaoul1) to get the WK Bilsteins...

congrats ABJeepster on your purchases; post up some pics and your experience/feedback!

Edit:

And I just got my wheels...so I am going to have to decide soon if I should get the Road Magnet II's or some SRT8 springs...IDK I am kind of like you Paul I like having a little extra shock travel, even though I don;t get the weather here

I will for sure. I am headed to phoenix at the end of the month and I will be towing the bikes down... so I should get a pretty good idea if this mod really works...
