2nd Gen Lowering kit?

Anybody know of any options for lowering the Compass? Not slammed, just another 1/2-1" lower. I've found a couple kits for Renegades, do the Compass and Renegade have the same suspension components? Thanks.

Yep, you can get lowering springs for the Compass. They are the same as the Renegade. I got mine from Madness Autoworks. They advertise about a 1.4 inch drop on the Renegade, but the drop on my 4x4 Compass was closer to 2 inches. I am really happy with the result. I think my Compass sits nice, rides great, and looks awesome! Here are a couple before/after pics.

Nice! Looks great. It doesn't look like there's much room between the tires and bodywork, any clearance issues?

What a difference that slight drop makes in the overall looks off the Compass. Did you also go with aftermarket calipers or did you have yours painted?

Thanks! Nope, no rubbing/clearance issues at all.

I have MGP caliper covers.
