They are replacement parts for a 2011 4wd patriot...so i guess it would be about the same as pre2011 FDII.
I'm not sure if someone ever compared pre2011 FDII springs to 2011+ springs.

From Moog catalogue :
part #81490 (Front) is for either 2007-2008 Patriot & compass 4WD or 2011 Patriot & compass FWD (CVT...std trans got a different part number)
part #81480 (front) for 2011 latitude x is .5 taller than other 2011 4wd springs.
Does latitude X model have something different..like something heavier in the front?:confused:
I don't see any moog part number for 2007-2008 fdII so we cant compare specs...

My father got a 2014 patriot 4wd, i'll try to compare height vs mine.
Congrats M7T for your info and your new Patriot looking

May be #8140 coils are for the Patriot with 6AT transmission, SIX-SPEED AUTOMATIC 6F24 POWERTECH WITH AUTO STICK, I think it is the heavier one, so I could read, here I leave some information about it:

The european Compass CRD 4x4, mine, is a little bit heavier 3395 lbs, thinking about moog coils will fit... instead of STU coils...

Hi, i did not install camber bolts but they had to slot the strut holes a little to get the camber right when they did the aligment.
What do you mean by slot the strut holes? Is this something that any alignment shop would know how to do? If you don't mind me asking how much did you spend getting the springs installed totall with alignment?

Thanks man.

They drilled the holes (where the struts attached to the knuckle) to an oval shape so they can have a little camber adjustement.

I installed the springs myself.

Gotcha thanks man!

There is a great Sticky I just read on here on installing Stu's coils. The process should be identical. I can't post the link here because I am new to the forum and this is my 1st post. :p It is a few threads down from this one in the Suspension and Tires section.

I am currently debating on

RRO
STU or
This MOOG method.

I currently have a 2007 Limited. How is this set-up still treating you today? It looks like you installed this in October 2015? I also would probably get camber bolts if I go this route.

Nice!!!!

Really thinking about getting a set of these just to boost my rear because of all my stereo weight...
