Bilstein shocks on a non SRT8 WK?
 
Here we go guys..
I AM READY!!! I got them all.. Shocks, SRT's sway bars, bushings and links. I got the rear Bilstein's from shockwarehouse.com and the front from Tire Rack. The sway bars, bushings and links, I was lucky to find someone on the red site from Brooklyn that had them all.. For an unbelievable price! Awesome SRT BTW... I am planning to put them on next Friday. If my mechanic allow me, I will take some pics of the installation to post. I can't wait

you cant use the srt links if you dont have the traingle mounts. they only come on the srt8 and you cant even buy them seperately, you have to buy the SRT8 links and they come with it.

those links you have will be way too short without the other pieces

To me, one word comes to mind.. "TIGHT"
Amazing overall improvement on the ride, stable, center, and an awesome sense of full control...
My friends, you must set a side some mod money for this one, absolutely the second best mod ever!!

My first best mod ever?
Well, SRT8 wheels, of course, which BTW goes really well together.

Anyway, here some pics... I like the yellow looks cool.

No SRT8 sway links necessary, you can reuse your stock links

Just as per Scott and Ray, the Bilsteins raised my WK precisely 3/8" same, front and rear.. No big, I actually like it.

I know, I used the WK ones.. Works great.
Thanks Rob.

not seperate, as part of the link, you buy the link, the rear I know for sure, you get the traingle

I think that your next mod should be the brakes from an SRT.
