You're better off asking questions about lowering/street jeeps on Jeep Garage or the Street Jeeps section of this forum. Much more street Jeeps on Jeep Garage, more offroad Jeeps on here.

^^^ This.

Though, truthfully, the street Jeep section here on JF is pretty sparse.

I have put SRT8 springs on one of my Jeeps and Eibach lowering springs for the SRT8. The regular SRT8 springs dropped it about 1" all around and the eibach springs dropped it about 1.75" front and about 2" in the rear. If you want a mild drop SRT8 springs are the best. The Eibach springs bottomed out quite a bit during normal driving. The Jeep handled much better in the corners, but I would want more up travel if I was going to run them full time.

BS....there's plenty of Jeeps on this forum that are modified and lowered. Like tnadanzig, mine is lowered with Eibach SRT lowering springs. If you don't put the shorter inner cone in the rears, you'll bottom out big time, like I did at first. Now bottoming out is not a problem. If you put the SRT front bumper on, again like I did, it is low enough so you have to be very careful going up driveways, and running into cement parking stops in parking lots. Also, if you're in a moderate snow climate, I wouldn't recommend the lowering springs with the SRT bumper. Snow deeper than 4-5 inches on the road will cause you grief.

If you're mainly after making it handle like it's on rails, and live in snow country, I'd recommend you do the lowering springs, the SRT sways (again I used Eibach), and Bilstein shocks, with the stock front bumper. You'll love it for sure, especially if you like ~10X better handling than stock.

At JG there is a whole thread with links on lowering your WK.

H&R's are what I personally plan on going with, but not much lower without replacing struts/shocks with Bilsteins which actually raise the vehicle a small amount, so you don't constantly slam the bump-stops hitting bumps.

Are you looking to lower it a bit (1") or like 3"?
