The Journey was SHOCKing

Have heard people are interested in the setup of suspension I did for springs and all...so figured I would post here as well:

Bilstein B6 Front (PN: 35-040408)
Eibach Front Coilover 250 lb (Ground Control 4105 - Also I advise to order Helper Springs from them and verify they are sending the 47.7 split sleeve to fit Bilstein shocks)
Bilstein B6 Rear (PN: 24-018067)
Eibach 9.5" x 5.5" 500 lb Rear Springs (PN: 0950.550.500)

The spring rates were verified via Greyson and Jeff Herson as viable daily street setups.

The reason I went for B6 vs B8 is because the B6 isnt a 'lowering' shock - I didnt want to lose any clearance. The B8 are by their nature a shorter shock.

For the Ground control front you get to choose what spring rate you want on the order (Part 4105 on their site)

Rear would be 0950.550.0500
