towing with 285s.. yes? no?
so im looking at bumping up to a 285 with my BB, however im thinking i want to make my WK my tow slut within the next year or so. im currently running stock coils, daystar BB and bilsteins at all 4 corners. im thinking for my 285 set up i was going to do the bilsteins at all 4 corners, XK rear coils and hemi front coils with the BB spacers to acommodate the 285s.

my question is how is the tranny going to handle the 285s with the weight behind it towing. obviously its not a flat run to where i would end up wheeling and im debating doing a tow dolly or an actual trailer. but my dilemma is do i do the 285s and still try towing with the 4.7 or do i drop it back down to stock with the hemi front coils/xk rear coils and come load levelers in the rear at stock height...?

any feedback from those that tow- with or without 285s

I tow with my CRD. I had help from Scotina 06 in setting up my suspension as I was getting rub issues with my stock wheels and didnt want any when I converted to the stock size SRT-8 wheels. I ended up changing my suspension with SRT springs and Bilstein shocks.... No issues since....100,000 Kms and going....
