Re: does this look lowered to you ??

Did you "time" the bushings. AKA loosen EVERYTHING and then cycle the suspension before tightening everything down?

Also, Eibachs will sit high every time it gets off the lift until you drive around for a bit.

He also has 22" wheels on his. Helps to fill in wheel well giving the appearance of it being even lower.....Sounds legit, right?

not sure this is correct, as the outer (rolling) diameter of the 20" and 22" should be same...

Re: does this look lowered to you ??

Not to hijack but can springs not being seated correctly cause my Jeep to sit higher than advertised? I definitely got the full drop in front but never feel like I got the advertised in rear. I also have a clunking noise in the back going over speed bumps.

Re: does this look lowered to you ??

Scott, you still have standard Eibach setup installed?

Also, cutting springs is just plain dumb and I don't understand why people do this. A spring is engineered to have a certain spring rate (compression and decompression) and load rate which is equal to its energy absorbed and released. Cutting the coils "where you think you want it to be" is not very mathematical or smart (and usually increases spring rate, which means you'll bounce more and have less control). This reduces load rating and can even weaken the metal over time. Particularly dangerous if heat was used to cut through the coil!!

possible but not probable.. i went to the best suspension shop in my city, so i'd suspect they knew what they were doing. and they worked on someone else's

I didn't mean for you. I meant for me! I'm pretty sure mine are not seated correctly.
