Lowering Springs/Coilovers

Good Afternoon All,

Have searched without luck. Will Eibach lowering springs for a WK fit the XK Commander? I see one user on Car Domain who "states" Eibach springs. Want to lower mine more than what the H&R springs offer. Would love coilovers. Would the BC coilovers for the WK SRT8 fit the Commander? Attached pics are of the coilovers I mentioned and the Commander lowered on Eibach springs per this guy. Eibachs website does not show springs for a Commander. Last pic is my current setup...2" Amazon spacer lift and 265/70 17" Firestone Destination MT2 tires. I want to slam it and install 20" SRT 5 spoke replica wheels. Plan to install comp cams, headers and tune in the future as well. Thanks everyone.

The Eibachs for the XK/WK are interchangeable and will lower the Jeep to about SRT8 Jeep height. The Eibachs for the SRT8 Jeep will go a step further. Yes, those BC Racing coilovers will fit just fine, factory SRT8 struts and shocks will also fit fine.

I have the SRT8 Eibachs and struts/shocks.

Jeep in mind, bumpstop replacement or modifications may be required.

Thanks for the info! Your Commander looks good. What size wheels are those? I've always liked lowering vehicles so there is not any wheel well gap. Would going with the BC coilovers pose a problem since the Commander wheel well has an odd square shape? Just picking your brain since you are already lowered.

Do you have the Eibachs for the SRT or standard Grand Cherokee? Pics?

Srt’s are not an option in the uk so they’re the standard Grand Cherokee.

My wheels are 22x9+25 with 265/35/22 tires.
They shouldn't pose any issues.
Thanks for the compliments.

I was afraid you were gonna say 22" wheels lol. I like that look a lot and now it has me second guessing 20" wheels. Was thinking the 5 spoke SRT reps in 20x9 with 255/50 20 tires. Now I have some deciding to do...thanks again for the input.

Well they make those same 5 spoke reps in 22s, a lot of WK2 guys run them and since they're reps and not OEM, they're super cheap.
