I noticed that Mopar has their own lowering kit for the C and so does eibach.

Would anyone care to enlighten me on what the differences are between the two kits? :confused:

The parts manager at my dealer says January 05, but I think he's guessing.

Is the Mopar kit going to be the same springs used in the SRT-8? The SRT-8 is supposed to sit just a tad lower than the 300C.

No, these are not the same springs that are going to be used on the SRT8. I will see what information I can dig up on these for you. We already have several sets on backorder, I will also try to get the expected shipping date for them as well.

springs

Thanks Ted keep us posted.
Maybe this should be a Sticky since a lot of us are looking at the idea of springs.

Does anyone know how much the lowering kits affect the ride quality? Are they compatible with 20" & 22" rims? Thanks for any info.

Lowering springs are not going to change the wheel specs any. The dreaded knuckle bolt is fixed, so its position will not be affected by lowering springs. Lowering springs will give you a slightly harder ride, less body roll in corners, and of course less ground clearence.

Eibach = Junk.
Do a Search on www.srtforums.com and see what they did with the SRT-4 Springs.
People almost got killed! The worst ride ever!
BEWARE!
Your link would be more helpful if it linked to the actual thread to which you refer... no search engine?

i believe he is asking about scraping the undercarriage or front bumper, and for the wheels rubbing change your offset that will fix that or roll the fenders cheaper route.

I can tell you this, I am not going to experience any scraping. We installed the 1.6 Eibach drop springs and followed all the directions by cutting the bump stops located in the rear shocks. We also loosened the rear supension and let the cars weight sit on the springs then tightened it all up. Our project still looks liek a cat getting ready to spray.....any ideas

I just had the Eibachs installed today. Although I wouldn't quite say mine looks like a cat ready to spray, I would like the back down a bit more. The back still rides about 1" higher than the front. Not sure what Eibach was thinking with this...

I am not sure either. The only thing I can think of is that Eibach is overcompensating for rear passenger weight.

drop

I was talking to my tire guys today. were taling about lowering the rear only.
Also the stock car sits an inch lower in the front then the rear. At least mine on the 20'ds does i measured the rocker panel behind the front wheels and infront of the rear there is an inch differance. Plus the wheel wells are not the same size. Its hard to get the look we want when there are so many things going against us.

Hi Ted,

I just purchased a 300C and I live in Vancouver, Canada. Here the parts department is useless when it comes to performance parts, so I wonder if you would be able to let me know when these lowering springs are available?

Would you be able to sell me as set when they are and ship them to Canada?

Thank you for your help

Well, I just received some information regarding these. These springs are going to be a 1" drop, and are scheduled for release in Feb. We already have several sets on back order, so as soon as we see they are released, we will post that information.
