Re: Lowering??

If you're just goin an inch the stock shocks/struts should be fine. Hell I've been riding on bwoody's with stock shocks for over a year now. Pretty bouncy but looks awsome.

Re: Lowering??

I cant seem to find a thread on if the srt-8 springs will work on a non srt-8 wk. im looking to lower mine all the way around and found a kit to lower and level the wk. But they state they are for the srt-8. I guess what my questions is will they work on my 05 wk 4.7 and if there is a thread for it please post a link. Thanks for all the help.

Re: Lowering??

Yes works fine but if you get the srt eibach springs you need srt shocks. I am running eibach wk non srt springs with stock shocks. On a 05 5.7

Re: Lowering??

Thanks ChrisWk. Did it level out a little bit. Everything I have found on here about them say that either it just lowered evenly from where it was or that is did actually level. I tried to see if you had any pics before I asked but couldnt see any. Still new and working on learning the system. Thanks again.

Running SRT springs with stock WK shocks. I agree, it is a little floaty, but keeps the wife and toddler happy. You just have to adapt your driving skills.
