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

Had eibachs for a year, they didn't lower the car much, and road hard, and with the black ops end links, decent handling, but stiff. The front suspension all had to be replaced most likely from the combination of awful Michigan roads and the spring that just beat the hell out of everything.

Switched to the RM mids along with the rear control arms and links and the look is much better, ride is 100 percent better and can corner like on rails. It is a good setup and Chad treated me Pretty good. I couldn't give away my eibachs so I sent them to the scraper.

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.

Sorry you feel this way!

I'm helping you and trying to make you understand Eibachs and or RM will cost you more than the messily 100-200 your trying to save and analyze! I know what it takes and explain that it's simple!

I'm not a Key Board bully and will not swear back at you or call you names!

If you want to talk smack about me so be it good luck with your jeep

Looks like Chad needs to tone down the passion in his post, folks feeling belittled and attacked lmao

Seriously, I think you guys are misinterpreting his responses. If you have spoken to him on the phone you would understand his tone.

Welcome how did I know you would troll over with your AFE exaust AGAIN!!

You keep poshing the same issue in multiple threads!

Even in threads with peole who are pleased with their exhaust showing their stuff off!! Sort of hijacking their thread with more of the same comments not fair to the OP's

You not me where pushig the issue we know you don't like yours AFE and returned it how many posts do we need to read it over and over?

Beside I don't share my opinions I give facts and customer feedback I don't really care to share my opinins as they mean nothig and are usless!!!

Spreading customer facts seem better taken and reasonable because they are true!

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

Ahh, a suspension debate.. I have had Eibach (lasted 100 miles), RM mid drop (lasted 200 miles) & the RM hybrid kit (3k miles). The RM hybrid kit Is by car the best look/handling when it comes to springs. As with any suspension mod, you'll need control arms, sway bar links, etc.. The stock parts are engineered to work at the stock height, guys complaining about needing extra components should just leave the suspension alone or buy a Honda Civic and cut the springs. Eibach springs were a huge disappointment (they were on the wk1 as well, I should of known better). If you want a stock handling jeep, that's 1/4" lower, go with eibachs. Mid drop isn't bad at all, but I preferred lower so I went with the hybrid kit which handled amazing compared to the others. To keep it short & sweet, stick with RM, you won't be disappointed.

Lol, you're gonna fault a guy for being upfront & honest with you? Maybe he should of just sold you springs and left you hanging when you needed links & control arms. No, instead he told you upfront what you'd need so there weren't any surprises!

You have $30k set aside for mods, but you're worried about $100-200 extra to make your vehicle perform? The f*ck outta here, anybody can throw figures around online......

Wow, more bully trolls. I knew there had to be more of them, around here.

I haven't bashed anyone. And yet, you feel like bashing me is the right thing to do.

Call your mom and ask for a hug. You need it.
