I have a Laredo X, and non-leveling. I don't think these springs are compatible with non-leveling.

I forgot to take measurements before, but I will take measurements after. Someone, with my setup can measure & post. I believe the proper measurement would be from center of wheel to fender because floor to fender would vary based on rim/tire size.

Re: 2011 wk2 lowering kit

Im not sure if this was covered in another thread, but is there any caution with installing the lowering springs with the Air Suspension? I have a 2012 overland.

Re: 2011 wk2 lowering kit

Thats what I thought, but figured "no question is a stupid question" LOL
My thought process was if I put on the springs, then my "normal" ride height would be 1-2 inches lower. I would ideally like to have the car operational in PARK MODE- similar to the stance of the Range Rover Sport.
