The 3.5-inch Super-Ride suspension system is an ideal system for the discerning XJ Cherokee owner who desires a more aggressive look, higher ride stance and better trail performance, but still wants to retain factory like on-road handling and ride quality. The replacement Rubicon Express Super-Ride lower control arms eliminate the weak factory control arms, without inducing any additional road noise or vibration.
