I cannot comment on the Eibachs, they are still in an unopened box in my garage. I installed the Road Magnets. In a nutshell, the RMs are fantastic looking and the handling is much improved. The ride quality is stiff, kind of like running around in track mode all the time. I love it. The stiffer suspension does not bother me as I really like the aggressive drop. 22s and these springs will be a killer look IMO. So in a nutshell:
For looks, RoadMagnets
For handling, RoadMagnets
For a more comfortable ride, Eibachs

Re: lowering springs

Looks great, how is the camber in the rear? Can you give me a height from ground to middle of gender in the rear? With the stock fronts on the rear I'm just under 32" and the rear is maxed out on camber but fell just in to spec. Still has noticeable negative camber though

Re: lowering springs

I would say his camber is off.

Re: lowering springs

Here's my review on both springs

Eibachs: I had the Eibachs on my 2012 for about 8 months. Ride was as smooth as stock but no improvement on body roll or handling. Also, nobody could tell my car was dropped. The front looked nice but the rear still had way too much space. (my opinion)

Road Magnet 1.8/2.8": Had them for one day now and it looks slammed! Had many compliments already. The ride is surprisingly smooth. Much better than expected and feels somewhere in between auto and sport mode. I guess time will tell how they settle and if it changes, I'll post it. Overall I choose the RM's.

I was nervous because I had lowering springs on my 07 srt and the ride was terrible! So harsh and really not worth it at all. The new gen srt's and springs offered are riding nice and smooth. Nothing like my previous 07.

Re: lowering springs

I will concur that the Eibachs are not aggressive in drop, the front you notice, but the back could use another inch or so. Co-workers said, the front looks good, but what about the back. However, given I had to adjust the headlights the Jeep knew something had changed. With 22's it may look perfect.

However, living in a snowy area, much lower and you will be plowing and with a wetsnow it will get packed up in the front if much lower.

As far as ride (with the 3-seasons) it seems to be smoother in auto, maybe a little more bounce, but not as harsh (if that makes any sense). I think with some non-runflats this would be near perfect cruiser. Sport and Track tighten up nicely and in my opinion stays much flatter than stock.

The biggest thing I notice is almost no nose dive when you hit the brakes, regardless of mode, it feels solid.

Looking at the stock springs you see why the thing can haul soo much weight, my god... Does anyone know are the springs on the SRT the same on the Summit/Overland... ?

Re: lowering springs

For the Extreme Drop I will have the Adjustable rear arms done in about 3-4 weeks the design, testing and certification is all being done now!! This is an OEM level part and should be a nice addition to any drop kit. We are planning on correcting the TOE 100% the major one! Leaving a bit of Camber is our goal since it will track better with a Tad.

I should have some cad renderings up in a bit for everyone to set eyes on these.

FYI These are going to be solid Billet they are really High End .
