Re: Rear tire rub issues

the WK Bilsteins may be more what your looking for then. They are anywhere between $250-$300 for all four.

Well I just wanna know is it a waste of money to do all four shocks if I don't do the springs and whatever else is required to lower my jeep. Maybe a stiffer shock is what I need in the rear....

Re: Rear tire rub issues

I dont think it would be a waste of money to replace any of the stock suspension. It is horrible. I would replace all four shocks/struts...thats just me though and my opinion.

Re: Rear tire rub issues

thanks buddy... I had the SRT8 Charger and the R/T before that... I was never that impressed with the SRT suspension.. but certainly the WK needs to be firmer than the floatasaurus that it is.I'm gonna look around...... I'll let you know what I come up with.

Re: Rear tire rub issues

went to the stealership.... here in YYC... they quoted $248 per shock for the SRT stock shocks (MOPAR?) and about $320.00 per SRT spring. Think, when I 'm ready, I will go to the JFJ site and buy the stuff I want there instead.....

Re: Rear tire rub issues

Ok.. so went to the scale today at a local truck stop. Here are the values..
Jeep unloaded, except for me and a full tank of diesel = 4980 lbs (front axle 2660 lbs/rear axle 2320 lbs)
Jeep with trailer attached (front axle 2540 lbs/rear axle 2680 lbs)
Trailer, unloaded, not attached to Jeep = 1180 lbs.
Trailer, loaded with two bikes, not attached to Jeep = 2640 lbs.
Trailer, loaded with two bikes, attached to Jeep = 2400 lbs. (axle weight)

Went over a few dips at 100 kph (62 mph) and no rub issues..... so maybe the Jeep was overloaded before????. Anyway, my only concern with getting the SRT springs and shocks is that it lowers the WK about an inch or so overall. Does that put me in jeopardy of rubbing if the body is already lower by adding the loaded trailer? Just trying to analyze the whole scenario before I take the plunge and change the suspension. What do you all think?
