new suspension option....who's interested?
 
I've been looking into other suspension options and have a company that will make a complete bolt in setup for out rigs. The ride height would be close to that of an SRT with lowering springs.
The front would be a complete replacement of the strut setup that is in there currently.
The rear would be a separate bag/shock setup.
The shocks would be either single or double adjustable (your choice)
You could get the 4 "bags" with schrader valves which would be completely manual all the way up to fully automatic kit.
The full kits (tanks, compressors, valves) would be able to be installed completely out of sight without any loss of space in the rear cargo area.

So, all that being said, is there any interest? Again, this isn't a universal kit that is being made to fit. This would be a kit specifically made for the WK GC's.

The full blown kit will be expensive but the very base setup should be very close to the price of the coil-overs. Plus, if one were to get the very base kit, you can add on to it as you want or money permits.

Sounds like this could happen a lot quicker than the coilovers too. :lol:

Interesting to see where this could go.

Much easier to adjust, add air to go up, remove air to go down. :D
The shocks are also available is single or double adjustable flavors.
As for "turn around" time, they'll need my Jeep for about 2 weeks. After that, most of everything is made in house, so not much time to make stuff.
As for pricing, I can't make any quotes until I talk to them again on Monday or Tuesday next week.
Just to give you an idea, before anything got taken apart, they would do a full road test with my jeep on some varying road conditions (smooth to very crappy) with an electronic ride monitor (same device used by car manufacturers), weigh the Jeep on 4 corner scales, measure the spring rate of the existing springs, and some other tests.
They also perform the same tests after to verify the setup. Their focus is on improving ride quality and handling, not just laying it out.
When I was there, they were under and around my Jeep for 2 hours taking measurements and looking at how / where to mount things. So it's a serious project.

Also, this will be able to be used on all WK Jeeps.


That would be fricken awesome. I might just be interested in this once I see a final installed product.
