King,

The back shot looks lower. But the side shots are hard to tell. Could you try a couple shots with your camera lower? How does it look to you? Love the red brembos!

Those camera angles are not the greatest to discern ride height. How about a straight profile picture from 10 yards back?

Hey Jeff, Great job! just the look I want for mine.
Could you measure the height from center of the wheel (or ground) to the fender, front and back so we could compare with stock height.
On mine I measure from center of wheel to fender : 18 1/4'' front and 19 1/4'' rear

OK here is Stock measures from mine :
Front 18 1/2, from Ground 32'' = 1'' Drop
Rear 19 1/4, from Ground 33'' = 1 3/4'' Drop

IMO this is the just the right drop for the GC. Now can you comment on how is the ride and handling compared to stock. Are the coils bent equal or progressive wound with closer spacing at the top for a comfort zone?

I talked with Fred at E&C Spring yesterday. Jeff's are the prototype set, and if I understand correctly are being sent to a spring manufacturing plant in Kansas to be remanufactured at the new specs. Fred said to give it about a 4 week time table before they can start work on other sets.

Any reason Eibach can't modify their existing spring and offer it for 2006-08 Jeep SRTs? ... appears there's one satisfied customer. ;)

Eibach is coming out with a kit that is estimated to lower the SRT about an inch to 1.5. Not knocking this company that created the springs for KINGMONKEY, but Eibach has been around for years and would suggest getting their product, they just build a very high quality spring. The release date is estimated to be mid November
