Input on suspension components

I’ve been out of the Challenger game for a long time. Originally had a 2009 RT 6spd, I wanted a SRT at the time but could not afford it. I had done all Mopar parts at the time for suspension, front strut tower bar, front and rear sway bars and coil overs. I am now in a 2018 Scat Pack Auto. Really impressed by the car overall and only desire at the time is to make it handle better. No immediate plans for tracking nor auto cross. Solely everyday/street car. Essentially reduce the body roll and handle better in turns and reduce the wheel gap. I remember how nice the set up was on my 09 RT and found out all the Mopar parts fit the SP. Do you guys have any inputs on these parts or any suggestions to improve the handling? I’ve read some have upgraded the sway bars to the Hellcats and seems like coilovers may be overkill. Any input on the Mopar springs or other brand of springs? Don’t want a bouncy nor harsh ride. Thanks.

Hotchkis, Eibach & others all do spring, swaybar & shock packages, spend a night searching which one you think fits your desires, and if you still have questions ask here, there is a good chance someone will have done what you are looking at and will have some good input you can use.

I’ve been using the search feature and going through active threads. I can’t find much info on suspension set ups on 18 SPs. I found a couple threads about 3 way adjustable Petty Sway bars. Sounds like they are a solid choice however, I looked them up and the website only shows they are applicable up to 2016 Challengers. Do they fit 18’s? Still thinking Mopar front and rear strut bars and leaning towards Mopar springs. I see mixed reviews on the Eibachs. Not really finding to much in regards to running Hellcat sway bars on recent SP/SRTs.

2015 to present, same specs as far as sway bars. Aftermarket parts fit almost all year/trim. Don’t throw money at it without doing your research. I wouldn’t change the sway bars. The upgrade in size is not worth the money. If it were pre 2015, I’d say go for it. Again, most aftermarket suspension parts fit all year/trim Challengers and even Chargers.
Do lots of research. Read lots of older threads.
Also remember, the lower you go the more possibility that you may need other adjustable suspension components in order to get proper alignment done. That’s more money. Especially labor.

apyung, suspension mods are the best bang for your buck IMO. They help with daily driveability and help put the power down to the ground, but...That's just MO. Do your research like wasp said, and then do some more research. Suspension mods are great but normally benefit from other corresponding mods. (Like new adjustable sway bars & adjustable/beefier end links together.) or [ A front strut tower brace & a rear strut tower brace combined together] and ect. Which all equals more $$$. That is why I agree with wasp....research research research.
