'12 SRT sitting on Mopar lowering springs before and after pics.

Went ahead and installed the Mopar lowering springs (P5155436). Great quality as always. Took me about an hour to install. Ride quality is not changed by much IMO, just a tad stiff. Baby smooth ride in normal suspension mode...nice and stiff when in sport mode.

I wish the back would go down just a tad more. I like the rake but its still a little much. But they have only been in for a day or so...I would assume it will settle a tad bit more. Over all I think its the perfect drop for these cars. Not low enough to hit everything but low enough to make a differnece.

Here are some before and after pics. I tried to get them at the same angles to see the drop but there are alot of shadows so it might be hard to see.

Thanks for the pics! I am looking to install springs that lower the front more. But don't lower the rear too much. I don't like when the car is level I prefer the slightly raked look. Any suggestions? I feel like I might have to do mopar rear springs with Hotchkis or H & R front springs.

Looks really good...did you measure from the center of the wheel to the bottom of the fender before and after to see how much lower it is?

Doesn't looked too raked to me...though the rear is higher than the back clearly. Looks good to me. I like the even/level look as well but this looks very nice too...natural like it was intended not a result just because.

What is the spring rates front and rear?

I like the look and the rake is not too severe. It really only takes about an hour for all 4 springs? It would take me that long to get the wheels off!

I have an advantage. I'm a Chrysler technician. With access to a lift and any tool I would ever need. So my time it took is an unfair representation of your average home mechanic.

No I was in such rush to get em on I forgot lol. There is a 12 SRT in our show room I can get a base measurement after the holiday.

Sorry idk what the actual spring rates are.

Do you have an RT or SRT. I had an 11 RT with the Hotchkis springs and it dropped it in the front atleast 1.5 inchs. The SRT is already lower than an RT so idk if the hotchkis would put it too low.

I will post a pic of my old RT when I get home.
