Thanks Luke.
Thinking of using the SPC adjustable control arms in the front, as I'm opposed to enlarging the holes in the strut towers. Any thoughts?

Also, I can't find these springs on your website? Is the model P5155436?

Thanks so much.
If you look to the right of the sticker it says sachs and I was told that means u have the nivomat load leveling shocks. I have been trying to find the same answer but wverybody says replace.

look at the shocks, do they look like regular shocks, approx 3 inches in diameter, then your good to go
load levellers are usually very fat looking shocks, approx 5 inches in diameter, unless you have something unusual that we have not seen,
you should be good to go

will not gained you any adjustment, as a rule we will move the cradle to the left on some vehicle in order to equal the adjustment

we never installed camber kits, the adjustment will be at the top of the specs

after nearly 20k miles on my own Challenger, first hand experience, we are not seeing abnormal tire wear, however we do recommend rotating tires every oil change

Luke,
So what adjustment is made when enlarging the holes in strut tower?
Camber, Caster, or Toe?

the reason we do that in some, is to even out the camber from one side to the other
Luke

ps, we have never used camber kits, normally we are at the edge of the limitation when lowered, however we are not seeing excessive tire wear,but recommend rotating tires evry oil change

Did you ever lower your car? Use the shocks pictured?

I just bought some 2011+ SRT springs from a member and Im going to lower my 2011 RT 6 speed STP car. Steve says it will work fine throughout the thread. Was just wonmdering if you have done yours yet. My shocks are the exact same part number as yours.

Thanks for the reply Luke, I was actually quoting Blackberryhemi, as he has the same shocks I do. I am going with the srt springs because I'm looking for only a 1" drop.
