    Tailor made for Jeep Renegade.
    +2” lift achieved only with longer shocks.
    Stock springs used on longer shocks.
    Best lift solution: keeps comfort and increase ground clearance and off road capability

    that would be a strut assembly not shocks.
    shocks don't lift a vehicle, springs do
    this is basically a strut with more preload.

    Not true: on a coilover system longer shocks lift the car.
    You can see it from the pics: my Trailhawk has been lifted 2” with this new shocks.
    And I used stock springs on the new shocks

    exactly, a coilover is very similar to a strut, it changes the placement of the spring perch to gain height.
    height cant be changed by a shock.....ask any knowledgeable mechanic.
    hence the reason I said this is not a shock...its a strut (or similarly a coilover set up)
    btw, what you have pictured is a strut, not a coilover. the renegade uses struts hense no upper control arm

    i love your setup, don't get me wrong, just merely trying to get proper info out there to help others.
    who manufacturers the setup you used? what was the cost of the kit?

    The spring perch has been relocated to match stock spring length, achieving at the same time a lift, but the shocks are also longer to achieve additional extension.
    As I wrote the shocks are manufactured in Italy, by a FCA supplier of OEM parts. The cost, here in Italy is around 750 Euros.
    Major advantages of this kit, in my opinion, are:
    - stock springs (same comfort of the stock car and preserving of shock extension, because longer or harder springs reduce shock extension to lift the car);
    - no other spacer needed to lift the car ( affecting less than other solutions suspension geometry)
    - easy camber recovery ( the kit has an eccentric bolt for each shock to get this result)
    - the shocks are engineered with a mix of gas and oil charge to get best offroad performances
    - avoid the noise of stock shocks when reaching max extension
    - shocks are built with stronger metal than stock ones, to have superior resistance to offroad stress
    - spring perch relocation allows over 30” tyres

    Just a pic of how fine they have been engineered:

    I do really like the whole idea of longer struts, but use my stock Trailhawk springs. be nice if that strut rebound & dampened similar to bilstein 5100 shocks

    Looks real good...could you post the manufacturer and any other details? Still a lil' steep for me at $800+ US, (750 euros=$860), but interesting idea, must be a much easier install...maybe when its time for new struts/shocks...

    This Bilstein 5100 you speak of, is that a replacement for the stock struts? I just have a Sport, would there be much difference from what I currently have?

    Can someone please post a link or some more info of how to obtain these, these seem like an ideal bolt in solution.

    bump... any additional info on these struts? I like the design. I'm leaning towards the bilsteins, but would love to get 2" and more tire clearance.
