Re: SRT8 springs with WK Bilsteins.

Ladies and Gentlemen.....announcing..... these mods are completed!!!!! SRT8 springs installed!.... WK Bilsteins installed! Everyone seems to have an opinion on this aspect, but I chose to listen to the tech. The toe and camber were out a lot after the mod was done, so I got an alignment. The ride is definitely stiffer. The steering seems more responsive and the body roll is cut down substantially. The front end dive is reduced too when the brakes are applied aggressively. Thanks to Fabian (iJeep)and Scott(Scottina06) for helping me make the decision to do this mod. I took before photos with measurements and I will take after photos with measurements, but it is raining here and the Jeep is filthy. I would be embarrassed to post the after pics. I took a pic of my ride next to a stock CRD at the dealership after the suspension mod was competed. There is definitely a drop difference to the naked eye, or even eyes that are not naked It was taken with my crappy cell phone.

Re: SRT8 springs with WK Bilsteins.

congrats on the mods! Those were definitely some of my favorite upgrades that I did to my jeep. I love the way it handles and im sure you will too. My alignment was not out of adjustment, but that could have just been me.

Well I hate to quote what I paid as I have a friend at the dealer and I paid a reduced rate for labour (including the alignment) and the springs. The shocks I got from Allshock.com. They were great to deal with and even with $72.00 bux duty and the dollar conversion from USD to CDN (which isn't much these days), they were still just a tad over $400. Would have cost me much more had I bought them here at a retail store.

Yah maybe. If it was, I am sure you would have eaten some tires by now, depending on when you did it. I just wanted to play it safe. But like you, I love the way it handles compared to stock.....

Re: SRT8 springs with WK Bilsteins.

Bump... I got the photo to work... Now you can see the difference between a stock CRD and my CRD with the suspension mods.

SRT8 springs with WK Bilsteins.
