rt lowering parts

I purchased a set of 2011 take off srt springs from a member here for my 2011 rt, and am looking for a good price on struts/shocks for it now. Anyone know a good place to buy? I found these and they look like a good deal, but it says not for srt.....anyone know why? I don't want to get these and find they won't work with the srt springs for some reason.

Shock Package, Persuit, 2011 Charger RT/ 300C/ Challenger RT, 5.7L

Thanks for any input.

I do only want a 1" srt drop over my rt, as this is my 90% of the time daily driver, so only looking to copy the srt stance, to go with the brand new take off set of alcoas/tires I scored on CL. I would just stay with the sachs, but at 30k miles I might as well replace shocks/struts while I'm in there, as well as the confusion on the load leveling shock problem.

The best thing to do is go with the Bilstein shocks and struts that came on the 392s. We have them in our store here:

Mopar OEM Right Front Strut Challenger 392
Mopar OEM Left Front Strut Challenger 392
Mopar OEM Rear Shock Absorber Challenger 392 <-- you'll need 2 of these

Does putting SRT springs on a RT even require changing shocks?

Not the front struts, no. But according to many if you have sachs rear shocks (like I do. .. with stp and six speed), you have to swap rear shocks or the rear will not drop. I am considering putting new on all four corners if I can get decent deal, around 400, for all.

I have searched for the Bilstein part numbers and can't find them, are these mopar or bilstein?

Thank u, that number comes up for 08-10. Says won't fit 2011. Wondering what the difference is, and if it's internal if there would be a noticeable difference.
