Lowering springs

Where can I buy lowering springs for my ´97 V8 Grand?
I can only find for the 4.0 on ebay.
I'm looking for 1- 2" lowering springs.

I will need new shocks to, any recommendations?

I haven't heard of any lowering springs for a GC. I would put my flame suit on if i were you.

4.0 springs will fit the 5.2. I would recommend just measuring your current shocks and ordering shocks that are 1-2" shorter in compression/extension.

then it gets bouncy. did that to a friends toyota hilux and well....

jeeps wernt made to be lowered. they don't even look good at stock height. lowering just makes it worse.

if i were you.... do the exact opposite of lowering it. and widen the track width and stiffer sway bars if your looking to corner "decently"...

I have to ask this, why would you lower a "Jeep"

"aut viam inveniam aut faciam"

I hate when old people poke me at weddings, point and whisper, "You're next." So I've started doing the same thing to them at funerals
