I think you are correct. The rims and lowering kit should be going on soon! But surprise surprise we have more snow coming tonight. Hopefully it isn't much!

Re: Road Magnet Mid Levels

I've been contemplating the mid levels only thing that worries me is any camber issues that cannot be fully corrected back without getting the control arms (not in the budget for that).

Yea I would imagine you would have uneven tire wear. I suggest you budget in those control arms.

Yes this is correct no as fast on the Mids but the problem will still be their.
We are also doing the Adjustable end links so we can but the sway bar back where it is supposed to be from the OEM once lowered on any kit.

Re: Road Magnet Mid Levels

I apologize if this is the wrong place for me to be asking, but I figured it would be seen by the people who knew the most about it...

I've read about the control arms being beneficial for any drop with the SRT, but should the arms be used for a non-SRT WK2 lowered on the mid level springs? Would they actually be beneficial or not really affect much with the difference in height not being as low as an SRT would be with the same spring setup?

Just trying to learn as much as possible and start saving for everything if so.

BTW, the Black Ops control arms look amazing and I'd be stoked to use such well manufactured/engineered products on my Jeep.

Really depends on your use honestly if you want to track it you will see benefits even some highway driving since it will stop with a lot of Rebound and deflection since everything is engineered to not only correct Camber and Toe but stiffen.

The hight of the vehicle will not change. The stiffening of any suspension for performance will never hurt any vehicles but they are also not a Need to have part unless you are on the Extremes and some kids from case to Case the Mids need em too.

Thanks for the compliments we are also working on a Rotomolded Cold Air Intake and a few other parts to make you all go

Perfect. Thanks for the response, Scott! I'll definitely keep the arms in mind down the road.

Re: Road Magnet Mid Levels

I plan on lowering my 15' Altitude with the road magnets... But this thread is making me wonder if I should. I'm not going to track my car but I do drive aggressively.

I don't have the tow option, so I don't have to worry about the load-leveling shocks. Do I still need to purchase the control arms? or anything else? or will I be good with just the springs?

Why would driving aggressively matter? Unless it's off road, you will probably notice that it drives a lot better on the street "aggressively".

And you shouldn't need anything else but the springs, especially if you aren't going on the track with it.
