switching it up (suspension)
 
so i love the look my bwoody springs gave my jeep.....the ride isnt that bad, but i live in montana and i know its gonna be a rough ride during winter with icy ruts in the road......so i think im gonna switch it up, my main concern is to just get the jeep level, i was leaning toward srt eibachs but i think that it will not be a much smoother ride than the woodys....any suggestions

I think that drop looks great. I have the SRT Eibachs, and it does appear to be very level from front to back. What I didnt do was upgrade the shocks, and so far I have blown and replaced the front right strut with a stock WK strut, blown my front left strut, and I believe my rear left shock is blown also. The rears im not concerned about since the travel between the bump stops in so small, but in the front when I go over bumps on the highway it feels like a boat going up and down on the left side. But again, looking at your picture your Jeep appears level to me and looking really good.

Oh, nevermind, I see you have the Bilsteins installed. Something I should do really soon.

Your WK looks great, the only thing I would do is remove the roof racks. I luv your rims, and the drop on it looks perfect IMO.

I've had these SRT Eibach lowering springs and the 20" SRT Rep rims on all last winter and didnt notice any difference. I'm in New England, where we get the occasional blizzard, and with the tires I have on my Jeep made it thru everything. I was passing cars on the highway during snowstorms it went so good. Though I only have the 3.7 engine so it wasnt slipping out all the time.
