That is with the Eibach's, the original post is talking about the Mid level Road Magnets.

Maybe you will have to either change to the road magnets or put 285/35/22's on.

Is anyone running mid level road magnets and 305/35/22 and are having trouble with rubbing?

Re: Mid level drop lowering question

there are quite a few running the extreme drop Roadmagnets with 305/35 with no rubbing according to their reports

Re: Mid level drop lowering question

I have a question. How will the mid level RMs or the Eibachs affect tow capability, if at all? I plan on towing my other car to race tracks with the SRT, so I don't want to compromise the tow capacity. But I also want to drop it just a bit.

Eibach should not affect towing at all. I emailed Road Magnet and they said they have not tested it.

However, because of the rake being gone your jeep is gonna look funny towing. Ass will be slammed and front will be high.

Re: Mid level drop lowering question

I'm debating putting the rear mid level springs on to eliminate the rake. I don't want the slammed look, but I love the front set up now. I want the rear to match. I don't tow, or even ride passengers for that matter, so the weight isn't an issue. I still have to take measurements though to see if I have another .7 inches in the back to give - I hate the nose high look.

On a side note, I know everyone says the handling isn't effected or gets better but I think with my Eibachs that my rear is lose - it could however, be that I put the new wheels and tires on at the same time and drive even more aggressive than before. Just saying
