Are they on yet????

Looking forward to seeing your results. Remember, they will settle a bit after installation so give them a bit of time to find their final height.

Received my order of the Mopar springs.

Does anyone have any little things I should look out for when doing the install?

I will be doing the install myself. I've read most people have taken theirs to a shop to have them install the springs so I'm not sure how much help I will get on this.

Seems pretty simple since its just springs.

Sorry guys its been awhile but I finally put the springs on.

One guy said it on another thread when he put his on "why did I wait so long". I agree with him.

So a lot of people have been saying that the fronts are the difficult part of the whole process. I will argue that comment because I had a lift, air tools, etc and the fronts were changed out in about 30min to 45min. Not sure what the trouble everyone was running into with the fronts.

The rear's on the other hand were a different story. Took out the bolts for the lower control arms and the springs fell right out. Trying to line up the control arms to put it all back together was another story. You almost have to "twist" the control arm to line the wholes up to get the bolt through.

I didn't have to drop the rear end or anything like that if you guys were wondering. Everything went smooth and it took me about 2hours and 45 to 3 hours to accomplished.


This is what the car looks like from this weekend after a week of settling.

The ride is a little stiffer which is normal. When the adaptive suspension is activated all hell breaks loose.

I still don't know why I waited so long to order and install them.

It looks like standard height after the springs fitted?????

Im wanting to lower the rear end only of my 2012 SRT8 by 20mm to match/level with the standard height of the front which is pretty low as it is.

Mopar springs only lower the rear 13mm which is not enough or what I am after.


How much can I lower the rear height (with new or compressed springs) before I start affecting the performance of the standard Bilsteins that are fitted?

Nobody can give me an answer and Ive searched everywhere.

Cheers.
