Tom has 22" factory reproductions on his Stormtrooper currently not dropped. Usually it is sitting on extreme drop road magnet springs. All the below pics are on factory springs, tires are 285/35/22 Nitto NT420

Just to confirm, those pics are with stock springs? Anyone know if those 285/32/22's fit on a 14 WK2 overland?

Yes those last pics have the factory springs on them. I had to get my suspension serviced. Both my rear shocks are completely blown. They are being replaced next week. then I am lowering it again but probably doing 1.8 drop front and rear.



i'll let someone else answer but I'm pretty sure you will be fine since your stock height is higher than the SRT.

Thanks very much CLStech, you are a top bloke. Cheers mate.

Thanks! Looks awesome. Would going up in size, say 295 or 305 have more sidewall than these tires, or just be wider?

would look much better lowered.

I'm probably going to do 22,s on stock springs in the spring. I want to lower but don't want to deal with the alignment and other possible issues. Will most likely go with a 305/35 or a 285/40.

You'll be fine with the Eibach drop. Just learn from my mistake and have the dealership align it. Hell, you might even ask if they'll install the drop for you.


Also, does anyone know why Tom removed his lowering springs?
