Re: Creaking noise from driver seat where the lumbar support is...

I have a 14 limited and my drivers seat pops and creaks. The dealer has replaced the lumbar assembly 3 times and no change. I am open for suggestions.

Re: SLY's Eco-D Vinyl Wrap & Dip

This is a very nice build. Mine has been at the dealership for almost a month with a driver seat problem that is apparently made up in my head. Did you take the door handles off? What kind of exhaust...

Re: Need tire info

I think the road magnet has a better stance but Eibach is a trusted name.

Re: Need tire info

It seemed to be the kit of choice and since it's my wife's daily driver, I didn't need to be experiencing.

Re: Need tire info

It was $380 for the spring kit, about $300 to get them put on and about $200 for the shocks. I'm guessing on the shocks, I was having other work done too.

Re: Need tire info

They are stock shock from the dealership. They were a little cheaper than aftermarket. You'll have to change the mounts too.

I installed mine Saturday. I have learned since then that I have load leveling shocks. Sometimes I feel like an idiot. This vehicle is smarter than I am.

Re: Lowered my 2014 JGC Overland today!

Okay, I am officially an idiot. It does have load leveling shocks. I guess I need to find out what replacement goes on it. I hate to call Eibach back.

Re: SLY's ECODiesel Build + Need Input!

How did you lower yours? I bought the non SRT kit from Eibach and I am disappointed by the way it sits in the back. The front came down good but the back is like I never touched it.

Re: Lowered my 2014 JGC Overland today!

I didn't even think about the shocks. I didn't think it had anything special on it. I guess I could call the dealer and ask if it has them. I hate to sound like an idiot but I have no clue.

Re: Lowered my 2014 JGC Overland today!

Mine says not for SRT. I just called Eibach and they told me that the only thing I could do is to remove the kit and sell it as "like new".

Lowered my 2014 JGC Overland today!

I'm planning on giving them some settling time. I don't think they'll settle the 2" or so I'd like them to.

What are road magnets?

Re: DEF Level at Delivery

DEF has a shelf life of 2-3 years before crystallization occurs. I keep it in bulk and have never had an issue.
