Grand Cherokee Shocks

The Grand has a nice supple ride as is over most bumps. Is there a way to up the premium feel? Has anyone changed there shocks to make their GC ride even more supple ?

Re: Grand Cherokee Shocks

Shocks do very little for overall ride quality.

The easiest way would be to get a bigger tire with a fatter sidewall. If you have 20" rims, this would mean going down to 18's, but making up the difference with a sidewall.

other than that, its a suspension overhaul...springs/shocks

Similar to a 1969 Sedan Deville?

Thanks andosky, the ride quality isn't bad at all, I just know it could possibly be better. Thanks for your input.

Re: Grand Cherokee Shocks

With the Quadra-Lift setting, I always thought it'd be cool to have a "La-Z-Boy" mode. For those long straight highway stretches, throw it into "La-Z-Boy" mode and bring me back to the days of riding in my grandfather's 1991 Lincoln Town Car

Re: Grand Cherokee Shocks

To my knowledge there are no aftermarket shocks that will work on a WK2 with OEM standard ride height suspension except maybe Eiboch.

Re: Grand Cherokee Shocks

Mine is quite bumpy at slower speeds but excellent at higher speeds. In Winter with bad roads and slow driving it does toss one around a bit. I've been thinking of this for almost a year. Thanks for posting the question.

Re: Grand Cherokee Shocks

The only shocks available for the 2012 Overland with the QL are OEM. Try to find them. There is over 700 back ordered.
