Awesome combination : I'm thrilled !
 
Had my tires, struts, spacers and isolators installed today, and I got EXACTLY what I was looking for; a smoother tighter ride, better high speed control , and better cornering.
I got 4 new Pirelli Scorpion ATRs , Bilstein 4600 series struts, Rusty's 1/2" strut spacer plates, and 4 new Moog spring isolators.
EXCELLANT COMBINATION! Definately NOT too rigid . I still have a very nice isolation from bumpy road surfaces. In fact, I was LOOKing for bumps on the way home just to feel how it was.
I had Bilsteins and Michelin Lattitudes on my last WK, and it was a bit tighter / rougher than this . I like this better. I think the Moog isolators are really making a difference, and the tires are really firm feeling. Comparing the isolators with the originals was like apples and oranges. The moogs are very substantial.
So now with the Monroe LLs in the back, my jeep sits pleasantly higher. The tires are 245, 70, 17, which are about an inch taller than the OEs. Still have just a little rake too.
I think the only other thing I want is a heavier roll bar.
Coming home on the highway, I was up to about 75 and felt like I could keep going nice and stable. Huge improvement.
Money well spent!
