Safe way to lower 96 GC by about 3-4"

I am disabled as is my wife. I need to lower the GC so its easier to get in. When also need to smooth out the ride or at least damper the floor vibration. It still has the original vibration mats under the carpet. Would I be better with a smaller wheel, which I know means a recalibration for speed or is there something I can do with the springs and shocks? The jeep has 248300 on it, I feel its worth the effort to continue with modifications. And I appologize to the off road purists, cancer and a spinal disease have ended our days in the woods and mountains.

There are a few lowering springs on the market you could use. These, combined with some shorter tires should get you a few inches lower:

But this is not going to do much for improving your ride. Any shorter springs will give you less suspension travel, so they will be a stiffer ride.

I agree that the shorter springs will be stiffer. The shorter wheel and tire combo is probably the cheapest and fastest to lower an inch or 2.


Of all the things Ive lost
The one I miss most is my mind

Its like a fart in a windstorm
It smells good but thats about it
