They have a different part number and it was brought up before, I just don't recall the difference. But I believe they were the same height strut, maybe a longer rod because of the taller springs though.

The question is are the struts Springs or whatever significantly taller than when has been previously thought or are they only .3 inches taller the reason why I think that the Springs are much taller than people think it's because the limited come standard with the 18-inch wheels and the larger tires which are only a .1 inch difference than the Trailhawk regardless we will find out when I measure a limited shock Tower compared to a Trailhawk shock Tower in the next coming days

The springs themselves on a TH/DH are taller, the struts have different part numbers yes, but that's likely just because the shock rod (very technical term lol) inside the strut is most likely longer because of the increased height of the springs. That would make perfect sense, but this is FCA.....

I also would like to know about the strut differences if any. I live in Germany, and unfortunately all fun things are prohibited. aka, no Daystar lift for me.

I currently have a 4x4 manual limited that I'd like to lift a bit for the purpose of installing larger wheels. As I'm in Germany, I have 2 sets of wheels, one for winter and one for summer. The winters are 215/65r16's and the summers are 225/55r18's. I'd like to use my winter 16ers to install 225/70r16's or even better 225/75r16's if I can swing it, to use year round.

I've read that the 70's should fit stock with no spacers or anything, but the 75's no way. Hence why I'd like a lift. I'm considering some 20mm or 25mm spacers as well.

Anyway, can I just use the 30mm Eibach springs and call it a day? Or do more things need to be changed? Also, anyone in the know, will that amount of height get me space for the 75's? I'd prefer the 75's because I really want the Falken Wildpeak's AT3W's. If not, it's Yoko G015's or the new Hankook Dynapro At2's. Those both come in a 225/70r16 flavor.

Thanks in advance for any help.

My wife's 2017 latitude came with 215/60-17 tires.
My 2018 trailhawk came with 215/65-17 tires.
her tire diameter: 27.157"
my tire diameter: 28"

My car is taller than hers, about an inch & a half.
The rear suspension cradle is definitely different on the trailhawk.

These are both US-spec cars.
