Re: installing new shocks, struts, springs and sway bars ?

Front strut clevis forks and the bolt that goes through it's bushing. Sometimes they seize up in the bushing and are a bitch. And, if it does, don't let the stealership tell you that you have to...

Re: 2006 JGC 5.7 hemi transmission issues

Your thumping will be most likely be your Top Front Differential Pivot Mount. Shouldn't be more than $180-250 to have fixed at most shops. Not sure on a DIY.

Re: The complete (05-10) WK Grand Cherokee suspension thread

You'll need to specify which Eibachs. WK Pro-Kit or SRT8 Pro-Kit.

Re: The complete (05-10) WK Grand Cherokee suspension thread

Re: The complete (05-10) WK Grand Cherokee suspension thread

I'll be honest... I have those 4600's and they are rather stiff with my SRT8 Eibach Pro-Kit (higher spring rates, lower ride height). I'll let someone else chime in on how they ride with the stock...

Re: The complete (05-10) WK Grand Cherokee suspension thread

Define "Stock springs". You won't get any drops with Stock Springs (you may actually get a slight raise in height, as the 4600's are higher pressure shocks than stock).

As for the links, I do not...

Re: A Different window problem

Take it to the dealer, as that doesn't sound right at all. Also, a 2007 is not a WJ, but in fact a WK Jeep (WJ was from 1999-2004).

Re: The complete (05-10) WK Grand Cherokee suspension thread

Re: Replacing antenna mount

That fender damage is pretty bad. I don't think you'll get a new antenna base to sit flush on it (water could leak around the base).

Do you plan on replacing the fender as well?

FYI. Bilsteins have a lifetime warranty if I am not mistaken. May be something to factor into the equation.
