Re: air suspension height

I'm not sure what you mean by higher up since it can be made to go quite high in ORIi. In auto the overland sits about the same as a steel sprung WK2 with a bit less rake (the rear is about an inch lower at normal height. That makes an air spring overland look lower than a normal limited.

Re: air suspension height

I wish I could get my Overlands air suspension to ride at Park (entry/exit) height and stiffen up enough to prevent any clearance issues when hitting bumps at speed. The new SRT will ride 1" lower so this shouldn't be out of the realm of possibility.

But the new SRT doesn't have air suspension, just springs, right?

It would be an extremely firm ride since you'd not have much suspension travel available. Is it possible? Maybe, if you got your hands on some of the dealer computer systems. Is it advisable or desirable? Much less than you'd think.

I believe Sport mode/height is at park entry/exit height. It is also stiffer. Unfortunately, you will feel bumps more, since it is stiffer.

Aero mode (selected by Sport terrain) is 0.5 inches lower than normal. Park mode is 1.5 inches lower than normal. Off-road 1 and 2 are 1.3 and 2.6 inches higher than normal, respectively. See pages 362-364 of the owner's manual.

Re: air suspension height

Well Jeep could have made Sport mode drop an inch and tuned the spring rate to something close to what will be in the SRT. After all, it is called "Sport" mode. I would like a firmer ride and IMHO even sport mode rides too soft. Guess my only option will be to get the SRT when available. BTW, I didn't mean to hijack this thread, sorry.

Re: air suspension height

Why is it that the back part of the Limited with Springs is higher than the back part of a Overland with Air Suspension?
