Can I assume that a wheel alignment was not necessary?

From what other people are saying no. I'm going to let them settle for about another week then put her on the rack to see where everything sits. I only drive 200 miles a week so not too worried about messing up a tire in only that short amount of time.

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

I have '12 SRT. I have to search the threads again when I get a chance. I forgot which springs lower the rear a lot which is what I want to avoid. I really want the springs that lower the front more. The best solution is coil overs but I absolutely love the 2 mode sport suspension and don't want to lose that feature.

Based on the picture in your sig you prefer more a "slammed" look....the springs are not for you..

The front is about 1" lower than the back.....the Mopar springs will lower front and back approx 3/4" so the rear will still be 1" higher than the front...

I'm surprised someone hasn't made a spread sheet listing all the aftermarket spring and how much they lower front and rear. That would be really helpful.
