Lowering Springs Ordered

Just order me a set of SR lowering springs (1.5" drop all around), adjustable panhard bar, and new camber bolts. That should cover everything I need right? Also how is the install without a lift? I am contemplating maybe getting them installed since I do no not access to a lift, but if it's not that big of a deal I'll just do it in my buddys drive way.

Floor jack with stands spring compressor for the front and an impact will save you hand cramps for the spring compressor. Very easy job watch the video on Cj pony parts and they have good install tips

You dont even need spring compressors. Watch this video. Ive done several other lowering spring installs and this really is a fast and easy way.

I have been contemplating getting these springs vs. the Eibach Sportlines. Did you also order the GT500 style strut mount like is recommended on the AM website? Or are they even required?

Nope, its all stock stuff. Handles great and IMO a perfect drop.

I opted to have my dealer do the install for $300. Mainly because work and summer classes have me busy. So I dropped it off before class and picked her back up after.

How long does it take for it to settle the full 1.5"?

Lowering Springs Ordered

Apparently one of the strut mounts on the front of my car collapsed in on itself as well, but they fixed it under warranty.
