They are on, I would say they make a BIG difference, just like the WK1 in that it helps dramatically reduce the tendency for the Jeep to track every gap and low spot on the road. I would say well worth it!

More to come with pics as soon as I can get back to my laptop, probably tomorrow.

Glad you're liking the mod, did you get it with the grease nipples on it, or without?

Here is a little more information....

These have the zerk fittings and I found it easier to grease the links before putting them on. The WK1 links did not have fittings and would tend to squeak. The fronts are side specific, so take your time and make sure you have the correct one for the correct side.

As for the handling, with four 12" wide tires on the WK2... the Jeep tends to track ridges or low spots in the road as well as expansion joints on the freeway. With the new links, this has been greatly reduced. Is it completely gone, no... but 80% reduced. Again, well worth it.

Any specific questions, let me know.

Front




Rear
