$1.21 each, qty 2
$6.73 shipping
$15.17

Note: you can reuse the strut/knuckle nuts if you don't bugger them up.
If you need the nut, get 06507676AA hex flange, locking, M12x1.50

The PN listed on the MOPAR websites is wrong. It is a M10 thread. Trust me, I have two in my garage wasting space.

As much as I'd love to take advantage of this, the timeframe just doesn't let it happen in my budget.

Other than the Dobinson springs, struts and shocks ($722), you will also need the following MOPAR parts:
5168088AA, Spring seat , qty 2
06507676AA, M12 Locking nut, qty 4
6509954AA, Strut Screw, qty 2

I've attached a PDF of the front and rear suspension chapters from my copy of the Field Service Manual (the same as what the service tech would use). Warning, it is 100 pages. It includes torque specifications and wheel alignment protocols as well as many other suspension components. I've highlighted the relevant sections.
Front struts, p. 28
Alignment, p.44
Rear shocks, p.72
Rear springs, p.78
FYI, the FSM is applicable to 2014-2017 Cherokee KL Trailhawks. I haven't verified it for AD1 and AD2 vehicles.

Please read it thoroughly then re-read it again before attempting a self installation of the front struts. This is not for the faint of heart. Start with the rear upgrades, they're easier. Plan on the front taking 2-3 times longer than the rear. If you finish sooner, then congratulations you're a master mechanic.

Tips:
[1] leave your Aussie/HS/MFC rear lift in place for an even better upgrade.
[2] if wishing to keep your Aussie/HS front lift, pre-drill the hole on the lower strut flange to 12mm before installing the front struts. Be careful to watch those front CV and axle angles.
[3] also see my write-up at
http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f428/...81/index4.html. Suspension, Aussie Plus Lift (post #58).
[4] you don't need to unbolt the rear stabilizer links or LCA to install the springs, just get or rent a spring compressor; you'll need it for the front anyway.
[5] Absolutely get an alignment after your upgrades. This is not an option, it is a must.
[6] disclaimer: modifications to your vehicle may or may not void your warranty. You should already know that if you've come this far.

I'll probably have more comments after I do my own upgrades.

Happy trails (and good luck)

WRONG! You need to replace the nuts.

I'm splitting the install over 2 days. One thing, you might want to get the McPherson type compressor for front.
