We now have in stock the Mopar Performmmance lowering springs. I will be able to open a box and take pictures and give any further details available on either Friday or Monday(2-18-05). According to the catalog they fit the C model and R/T models only. And rear whel drive only as well.

I am sorry but I do not have any further information right now.

Order here

The AWD has a completely different suspension design, including spring rates, tension, shocks, control arms, knuckles, etc. It is taken from the previous gen E-class AWD.

Yes, 300CAWD. I am always serious when talking about components. Your employer, DCX, built the AWD as a 4 door 4X4 sedan. They created high ground clearance, and use quite a different drive train setup from the RWD. Ford have done a similar thing with the 500. It's designed to sell to a limited market that wants high ground clearance and lots of traction - folks who live in rural areas with mud and snow to contend with. Some city people will buy this version just for the added safety.

As to performance mods; lowering; large wheels - etc. there won't be much of an aftermarket for this model, IMO. Better to go with the 300C or the 300C SRT-8.

Randar; So how much do you think that they lowered your ride? Enquiring minds; (OK, I) want to know.
1 inch in the front and no adjustment in the rear
here are the front comparisons


and the rear


now it looks like the rears have actually were raised but they have since settled to the same height. The spring rate is much tighter though

Great,
Alright i bought this mainly for safety. What is the biggest obstruction though for dropping an inch. What happens if u drop an inch, i mean they created a rwd with some cleareance right u guys dropped those no problems atleast for most of the people who done it. But whats so wrong with AWD.

There is nothing wrong with an AWD. It can be dropped if someone makes the springs, however, I doubt someone will make the springs. Maybe someone will make them in the future. The AWD is going to need a 2" drop.

NO DROP IN THE REAR!!!!! urgh now I need to call my guy & figure something out. I eventually want to go to that sweet KW? setup but figured the mopar's would do for now.. but with just a 1" front drop and nothing at the rear.. why even bother?

$240 is a lot of beer.
