22's came in today for the 'Riot.. What to do for lowering?

So I ordered these a couple weeks ago..




Slapped em on real quick before it got dark out.


I like em. But I'm sure they'd look alot better if I dropped it a couple inches. Any suggestions on suspensions? personal experience preferebly. It's a 235/30/22 tire so I have plenty of room, but not wanting to slam it to the ground.

I may be wrong, but I feel a set up like yours is going to be very rare on this site. Majority lift their jeeps on here

Sorry I can't offer any help, I don't even know of a place to buy a lowering kit for your Pat haha. Good luck though

Yea. I would, but it's just a loud daily driver. I can't see lifting a 2wd Patriot.

Here are some lowering springs from H&R, also you might want to look at some Caliber forums and spend some time searching Google to see if any parts are interchangeable.

Yea, I think I may try the H&R kit. I just wanted to see pics of it installed/hear about what kind of clearance it offers. For some reason the angle of the pic above makes the wheel gap look greater than it really is.

Took a quick pic yesterday and it doesn't look so exaggerated.

You may want to try the street jeep forum. You may find some better information over there including the post below.
