I'm looking forward to seeing all this. It better be ready for March 1st. That's when we all start buying toys.

Good info, options are always good. Although I think the RM mids are the best choice, I'm content with my current eibachs... Look forward to their improvements.

Scott used to say the same thing until he put his Hybrid set on and saw the improvement! Not only in looks but performance!

Re: What did you do to your WK2 SRT today?

Oh as far as Eibach doing another set not sure it's necessary not sure what their gonna do that hasn't been done already we have 3 good ways to lower with RM and theirs only one thing that is left and Eibach don't have a clue as to what that even is because their late to the party!! So no matter what they release IMO their not even gonna come close to the 3 RM options and if they do they will be more money and do the same as 1 of the RM options so what's the point? Aside from that RM has a 100% satisfaction guarantee unlike any one else!

Re: What did you do to your WK2 SRT today?

For me, it's all about price. A small-runs US company sets its price accordingly to its main market. RM's US domestic market price is perfectly acceptable but since the fast rise of the US dollar, exports are due to suffer.

Remember, in canada, we get the same thing for $1 than you do in your market in the US.
Which means, that when we import something ourself it's 33% more expensive than its equivalent product, sold locally. In 99% of cases, it's not worth it.

At $450, including shipping, plus VAT, the RM springs would cost me:
(450*1.33)*1.15 = $688

Would anyone in the US pay $688 USD for a set of springs? Absolutely not.

Since Eibach has a larger global market share, they have a proper distribution network and provide the product at a local market price.

The fact that Eibach has recognized that people didn't like the initial product they released and went back to the drawing board, that pleases me and I feel like they care about offering a better product. Couple that with a decent market price and we've got a very respectable proposition.

I've personally sold 100's of sets to Canada and most people have shipping stores in the USA. Their are also shops that sell RM their because we supply them too.

Aside from that if your talking about pinching pennies 100-200.00 over a set of springs may be you should leave the tuck alone!

WHY you ask because your going to have to buy Control arms, Front,Rear and End links or your going to burn through tires at 400.00 Ea+.

So if springs are worth that much of an analysis into government taxes and mark ups to you I would stay stock because springs done properly are going to cost you more than your 100-200 more than the USA delivered price at the end of the day.

Aussy guys are paying well over this price for springs with Eibachs available because their a superior spring.


On people paying 688.00 for springs in the USA I have well over a dozen who actually payed more than that LOL. They bought Eibachs Rm Mids and RM extremes to play with. So it really comes down to financial status I guess and wanting to pay to play JMO.

Re: What did you do to your WK2 SRT today?

So...your gonna wait on eibachs to save a few dollars when the RMs will still be superior? Eibach cant make springs for these beasts...weve seen it the last 2 generations of SRT jeeps. Eibach went back to the drawing board on the gen 1 jeep srt and didnt do any better. It kinda pisses me off that they rush and INFERIOR product to production just to sell a few sets to th first buyers if the jeeps....which is what they did here. Their first drop springs are VERY inferior to the Roadmagnets in all dimensions. I don't care if they come out with 10 new variations and give them away....they misled the entire jeep srt community with their first set of springs.

Re: What did you do to your WK2 SRT today?

Every decision is emotional. Look it up, that's the truth.

In my case, Black Ops, you've been rude, condescending and haven't done a single thing to entice me to buy from you. I haven't said anything up to now but this last post is the cherry on top.

It seems like this forum is "The Black Ops Show" and most people enjoy your bullying and bad manners.

This shit doesn't work on me. Good for you if you don't mind loosing a new prospective customer. I've budgeted about 30k for mods on this car. None of it is going your way.

I tried to communicate with you by email, you treated me like shit. Same on the forum. You chose to reject my business.

Re: What did you do to your WK2 SRT today?

Please show . some proof of your outrageous accusations cause blackops has a reputation as the best when it comes to customer service. He's just being honest with you....and it seems you are a bit emotional with your response. Maybe take a step back and rethink your response as blackops has the ultimate respect from 99.9% of the jeep world. I see it as him trying to save you some money and heartache. Believe me....ive been there. I had the eibachs as thats all that was out at the time. They sucked ass...rode like shit and cost me money to install and to uninstall. Why mess with a company that couldnt do.it right the first time? Thats it. Weve been.messing with this platform.for years....why not heed our info and suggestions? We have the experience. ....just saying....

I think Chad's delivery can be misinterpreted. I'm sure @Ollie feels that he is rude from him being so blunt most times...
