Which drop kit?

So which drop kit do you think I should get guys?

Eibach = 1.0" Front 1.3" Rear
H&R = 2.0" Front 1.8" Rear
Ground Force = 2.0" Front 2.0" Rear

Eibach's will give you an even drop, and the Jeep will sit level. With the other 2, you might still have some rear rake

Re: Which drop kit?

also I know nothing about bumpstops etc. Will I have to modify anything or will I run into problems with bottoming out. Any help from people who have used drop kits is much appreciated. I read that marlin put his back to stock height because of problems. Thanks for the information and help guys.

Re: Which drop kit?

I agree with Hector leveling is better ... go with eibachs and it's also something that a lot of WJ owners have used stick to the safe side
