Do not base things off of what part numbers are currently listed on those sites as they don't seem to be accurate for fairly new vehicles. I have also looked on those sites which are not up to date.
Atleast between my 2014 summit and 2015 HA the part numbers on the air suspension components were different. I mean I suppose since one was a 2014 and a V8 and another is a 2015 and a V6 could be a reason why they are different, but that still wouldn't explain why they ride very differently.

Do you still have the part numbers? Every part inquiry I've done by VIN shows the same parts for both HA and Overland/Summit. If you still have the part numbers I can see what they cross reference as.

And these aren't "sites"...this is the Chrysler system.

I want a sport coded air suspension!!!

2016 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

If someone wants to PM me a 2015 (and possibly 2016) HA VIN I'll check the part numbers listed in the catalog again. Last time I checked was a good bit ago, so it's possible the "sport tuned" suspension wasn't added until later. Can't hurt to look again.

Actually I'll probably go looking online for a few too.

Hopefully they don't go off those miles when the lemon buy-back my car.

One million x $0.25= $250,000 mileage penalty

I wouldn't put it past them. Right now, I'm going around in circles with Chrysler Capital. For some reason they didn't include my state sales tax in my lease payment. Then while looking over my paperwork I see that what the dealer had listed for the monthly sales tax was incorrect... actually less than what it should be even though they also had the correct sales tax rate listed. So I pointed that out to CC as well. Of course, they won't take my word for what my sales tax rate is, even though I live here and pay it on something every day. No, they have to contact my county and get it from them. That was several days ago and I see they still haven't corrected any of it.

Dumbasses...

Unfortunately I deleted the pictures I had taken of my 2014 Summit V8 suspension, but I think to be 100% sure we need to cross reference the same year and engine. Like I said my '14 Summit V8 for sure had different part numbers on the actual air suspension components compared to my '15 HA V6, but to confirm I think we need to compare same year and engine. I can supply numbers for a '15 HA V6, can anyone peek in their wheel wells of a '15 Summit or Overland V6 to compare to mine HA? I'll try and get numbers here shortly.

Here is a picture of the front shock assembly label. Numbers are identical for both front left and front right. You can just look in and see this label through the wheel, or above the tire if your not in entry/exit height on the air assembly.
2015 HA V6 12/15 mfr date.

I would think the engine difference would affect both the parts (tuning) and the ride (weight).
