anything I should know before buying wk srt shocks
 
I really need shocks and struts for my wk since I have blown them out and its time I cant postpone it anymore. Any hints I should really know before I buy them. I would be getting them off the justforjeeps.com website. The pair of course, any hints or advice of what else I need. I have stock srt springs and just my 22in rims.

nope...mine sold


the SRt Bilsteins will fit perfect and are the BEST option for shocks/struts IMHO for the WK.

Until they "top out" over harsh bumps due to lack of travel. I had the shocks and they did this with my non-lowered WK. If you want these shocks to work, you need lowering springs to decrease the amount of potential travel in the system (that the shorter srt8 shocks can't compensate for).

very true! they are a good 3-4 inches shorter than the WK bilsteins
