This coilover kit allows fitting Jeep Wrangler JK front shock absorbers to Jeep WK/XK front end in a coilover setting. We chose to use Jeep Wrangler JK front shocks to build the kit around because of the multitude of options available in terms of quality, brands and different lengths available to choose from. It allows you to chose from many high-performance shock absorber brands offered for the JK to fit to your WK/XK regardless of your lift height. It also allows you to chose from many 2.5" ID coilover springs to build the coilover. The kit was tested using the front FOX 2.0 shock absorbers (no reservoir) for Jeep Wrangler JK. We can help you specify and select the proper coilover spring based on your current setup and future setup plans. If your WK/XK is at OEM height, you can use JK stock height front shocks. If your WK/XK is at 2-4" lift height, you can use JK 1.5-3.5" lifted front shocks. If your WK/XK is at 5"+ lift height, you can use JK 4-6" lifted front shocks. The kit is developed to accept limiting straps at the upper shock mount to allow more flexibility in selecting different length Wrangler JK shock absorbers. This kit was tested in a Hemi 5.7L powered Jeep WK with 5"+ of lift. The shocks used were FOX Shocks 2.0 made for a 4-6" lifted Jeep Wrangler JK. The springs used in our setup are Eibach with 2.5" inner diameter, 16" free length and 650 lb/inch spring rate.
