well because most jeeps are raised to go offroading... I Liked the look of the compass, and the "lowered" look...but i'm not really planning on going offroading with it, so I only got the 4x2...i2canoe said:I can't understand why one would want to lower a Jeep?
When I pull up next to a Caliber I don't feel any envy for the driver down there.
I don't think I would like to have to look up to other SUVs.
I know the Compass is sporty, but it is still intended to be a Jeep.
If you want to sit lower I think it would be better to buy a vehicle so designed.
Now . . . if they would offer a big opening roof like the '08 Liberty, or best still, a full soft top, a la 1948 Willys VJ Jeepster.
Now that would be a unique market position, the only SUV-convertible.
the springs including shipping, duties, etc etc to canada was $320... which I believe is not bad at all... and I just switched springs, since there seems to be no lowering struts...plus they're fairly new...so i'm hoping they will last a while anyways!Nick8387 said:how much did your springs run you, and are you keeping the stock struts or are you upgrading them as well.
