I know your on the other site, don't know if you followed the SRT engineer chat. I asked about lowering springs.

If the spring rates are similar to the stock springs, there will be no adverse effect on the active suspension functionality.

I had to take a full ring in the rear or it wouldn't have sat correctly.The shop doesn't know the true drop until they set the car back down.It over shot the front by 3/4" .The WK2 has 8"s of travel which is enough to go offroading, WK1 had 6"s of stock travel with still 5.5" left in the rear it's more than needed plus there is unbinded coil in the stock WK2 springs unlike the binded WK1.Anyone can chop springs.These guys carefully crafted them back to fit in the cups.The active controls work perfect.I now know the problem with coming out with aftermarket springs,It's not the spring but the camber.The camber will not adjust because the arms are fixed and anything lower than 1.5" and I don't think they can do the stated 2"s.It will require adjustable hard pan bars.I was dealing with 2.5 .Thank god the shop that lowered it made them.My problem is I couldn't wait for a spring kit anymore while looking at this stunning new jeep with it's ass up in the air.I had to pull the trigger I spent more that 3 sets of springs doing it and I'm very pleased with how it turned out

NEVER ENOUGH

I agree! I'm a long hater of the looks of the WK2, but with some money, they start to get my attention. Its just sad that it takes a shit ton of cash and visual mods to look aggressive. This one looks baller though!
