Perfect. Good to know that’s a real option. Thank you very much!
I feel the same about my QL, love it but, if it were to fail when miles are high I would want to go low budget on the fix. I did find this rear install video that gives an idea of what is done during the conversion.Hoping eventually someone who has purchased the Strutmasters Air Conversion Kit will post their thoughts after having installed it and possibly include a tutorial of their install with pics. Will give most of us a great relief that have Maxcare warranties expiring before our QL's eventually fail. I really enjoy the QL, but if it fails, while I still own my JGC, and no longer covered by Maxcare, I will be looking at the Strutmasters or RRO alternatives vs. paying for the new QL components. Have almost 11 months left on the MC, so hopefully there will be good reviews on the alternatives by that time.
There are threads in the Suspension/Drivetrain/Wheels/Tires/ Brakes sub-forum up above that talk about QL replacement. Very few have attempted the Strutmaster and posted about it over the ten plus years this JJC platform has been in manufacture and the new Rocky Road kit is not possible to get right now because of parts being on backorder. You can roll your own kit...that's discussed in some of those threads, too. But you have to decide if that is practical or not...Hoping eventually someone who has purchased the Strutmasters Air Conversion Kit will post their thoughts after having installed it and possibly include a tutorial of their install with pics.
The Kit is shocks, springs, Upper Mounts and associated hardware (2 addition inexpensive pieces per assembly)....Rocky Road Outfitters sells a QL removal/lift kit using Old Man Emu parts that runs about $1,600.
This may be why Strut Masters only offers a kit to 2015. I questioned them about this and they never replied even though they seem to brag about their tech support....Mike.But if you have a 2016 or later WK2, they changed the strut to have a tab on it to mount the endlinks for the swaybar, these are in short supply from the aftermarket....
The other thread where the guy canceled his kit, I think it was for a 2016+, and I suspect that was the reasons for the repeated delays. They said they were waiting on the supplier for one of the parts and likely it is for the 2016+ front shock that the few that have offered it, they are back-ordered with long waits.... ....I might be remembering that wrong, so check the thread to confirm it if you need to know for sure.....This may be why Strut Masters only offers a kit to 2015.
