Yeah but you could see what it looks like. Not much ground clearance for sure.

Putting 16" rims with low profile tires would take it down without messing with the suspension. However the cost of rims and tires would not be a low cost solution either.

Personally I like ground clearance. For non pave roads and in Winter for clearance getting through deep snow. Higher is better.

Never seen a lowered Compass before. If you really want to do it, try to research about the H&R lowering springs.

Very doable!

H&R makes lowering springs for Compass and Patriots



SRT4 wheels looks awesome on a compass

Here is a set on a lifted compass (mine)

I was looking at the Patriot forums and I think that they can go lower then the black compass above, he is using BC coilovers which let you adjust the ride height. Personally I think the height of the black one is perfect. I also read that Patriot guys were bending their sway bars or links because of it being so much lower so that might be something to watch out for if you go lower. Would love some input from the owner of that black Compass but his posts are older and maybe he isn't on here much anymore

Im wondering if you can get springs and struts/shocks from a caliber srt and put them on... the srt is already 1" lower then normal calibers and lowering springs bring it down another inch. So if you put that on our compasses would it lower them 2" do you think?

I know I'm literally reviving the thread from the dead. But its worth a shot to bring more dropped compasses to the car community.

Lowering the compass is very doable. I personally have mine dropped on BC Racing coilovers with SPC camber arms in the rear. The drop isn't for everybody (depending where you live.)

The term "lowered Jeep" is a contradiction. You bought the vehicle, you do whatever you want with it, fair enough. But 'Jeeps' are valued based on their severe condition capabilities, and lowering one severely reduces its capabilities in favor of a mere visual style or 'look'.
You can have appearance, I'll take capability.

Very well said. I've always wanted a lifted jeep, but not on this platform. Plus I love being different. Now if I lived further up north like NC that would be a different story for me. In Florida the hills we have are the massive trash mounds. Not too many spots to go off roading her unfortunately, and the few spots we have I take my atvs out to abuse them.

I agree. I'm getting my 2014 compass lowered this week. I currently have the stock alloy wheels, but now that it's paid off, I want a drastic change. Originally I was going to have a lift kit installed with beefier tires, but it turns out it can't be done, unless it's custom because the only lift kit avail for the compass is for ones that came out of the 2014 assembly and mine came out of the 2013

I was debating a lift for the longest when I got my 2014. It honestly made no sense for me to do that since I'm FWD. If it was 4x4 it might be a different story for me. Besides, who doesn't like to be different XD
