Lowering the Challenger R/T - blown shocks
The best approach is to get sport shocks specifically designed for lowered cars that have been modified with higher performance springs.
I've seen this issue crop up with other makes, where the stiffer springs
put more demand on the shocks and the added friction and heat on the shock will create failures. These generally are designed for shorter travel and have different compression and rebound rates factored around stiffer suspension springs.
