New SHIP date I was just advised for my fronts is June 3rd. I went ahead and put the 5125's on the rear, but I am still looking for the struts.

I got mine from Kolak a few months ago and am very happy. They are worth waiting for. I drove a 96 Cherokee Sport until the frame rusted through. When I bought the WK last year, I was embarrassed to drive around in it because it looked like a suburban cowboy vehicle. The way the WK tilts to the front. Might be good for gas mileage but I don't like it. I prefer a horizontal profile line. I put the 5100s on with the 2 inch setting up front, and put 2 inch Rusty's spacers on back at Kolak's suggestion. The back spacers in fact only give around 1.75 inches of lift, which helped to level the WK. I like it now, and the 5100s noticeably improved the handling.

I didn't measure beforehand, but I just went outside to measure. the front on the middle setting is 34.5 from the middle of the fender to the ground. The rear with the stock Jeep Mll's is 34.25. I tried to post a picture, but it's giving me some error message.

Just did mine Friday with a Teraflex rear spacer and the fronts maxed out on stock springs. It's awesome. It would definitely be more controlled with new/better springs, but I like the soft ride and it's still more controlled than stock. Maybe MD coils later, but this is nice. Worth the wait.

The spacer is part of the 2" budget boost kit that Teraflex sells. They were good enough to make me a deal on just the spacer instead of the whole kit. Pretty much anyone's rear spacer should work fine for you.

Kolak can help you with the spacers as well. Mine are on the way and hope to be wheeling in the San Juans next Friday!

Here is a question for somebody - What would be the result if you used the 5100s up front with the Superlift - but put the shock on its lowest setting and used the Superlift spring? Would it be just over 4"?
