After pic this evening (lighting isn't the best, but just went out there & took it)

Didn't really care for it being that low. So I had them put the stock coils springs back in, keeping the Bilsteins in place. This is much more to our liking, nice and level too:


Still a bit lower out back than a stock Altitude:

Where can I find more info on this? Can I slightly lower the rear by just changing the rear shocks?

Amazing what a new grill will do! Took me 1.5 hours and it was actually easy!

I installed Bilstein 4600 shocks at all 4 corners. These shocks, on stock coil springs, actually raised the front by 1/2" and dropped the rear 1". If you have a factory tow package you probably have the load-leveling shocks, they will add a little height, but I've seen non tow-package GCs with a bit of a rake as well. They come that way from the factory .
For me, I would always run the same shocks at all 4 corners.

I agree with Attitude. When mixing springs or shocks from different manufacturers (front to rear) my concern would be inadvertently inducing an under steer or oversteer condition. It may not happen but each manufacturer engineers their products to work together as a set. Something to think about or look into in any case. Discuss your plans with the suspension/alignment shop in your area. Happy motoring!

WOW ! Love that whole Recon thing. I recently bought the Laredo Version of yours, also in RECON, and boy the Waiting is gonna be even harder now seeing yours ! Congrats from me as well. Mine should arrive from another dealer in 3 or 4 days. V6 Recon with the Black Cloth Interior, ORA1 & Tow (that's it), keeping it as "simple" as can. The 1st thing to change will be the Michelin LRR tires to the ones You have, for much better off roading grip ! Let us know if any "Issues" - got that New RECALL going, S28, on This new shifter/ trans. wire harness crimp problem- vehicles built between 15 May 2015 and 19 Feb. 2016 !
My build date is (supposedly) later (11 - 15 April) so got my fingers crossed !
