6.1 vs 6.4 alignment specs? ***UPDATE: GOT 'EM***

Can anyone provide the 2010 vs 2011 SRT-8 alignment specs? A number of buff books have reported that there are differences.

***UPDATE***

You can see that the big difference is in camber. According to Chrysler Canada ride height remains the same.

I'm thinking of trying these alignment specs on my 2010...might sharpen turn-in a bit.

Spec verification

Can anyone tell me where the spec sheet on left came from and whether it is accurate? My 2011 innaugaral 392 is at the shop and they called saying that the alignment is way out of spec and wanted to charge for Camber adjustment kit. (left = -1.2, right = -1.7) This seems to be within spec according to the sheet posted. but the tech Iwas speaking to new nothing about this. Toe was out, so I am having it adjusted.

different parts

You guys do realize 09-10 cars have different suspension parts than the 11-12 cars I hope. Even the engine cradle has a different part number.

Engine mount, front upper control arms and tension struts are a few of the parts that changed. Spring rates changed too on SRTs.

You will probably wipe your tires real quick using the 2011+ specs. Dodge (after 3 MYs) just did not change alignment specifications, rather the whole suspension which accommodates those settings

rayzazoo considered doing this about a year ago based on mention in an SRT chat session.

You could PM him and ask how it worked out.

Let us know what his experience was.

After further investigation, I opted not to conduct the swap (has it already been a year ?!?). Speedlogix put together an OEM 2011 installation package, however, there was a lot of part compatibility issues and uncertainty.

The better route suggested was to get the Eibach front and rear alignment kit and add the bumpsteer kit as this package offered a more flexible, compatible solution.

$179 - speedlogix bumpsteer kit
$87 - eibach rear alignment kit
$313 - eibach front alignment kit

I have not made this swap, however, there are lxforum members that have done this.

[edit]

Here are my 2010 alignment specs which is technically the route I took. It's nice having my steering wheel centered now. I will mention that I have a front strut bar which might explain the reasoning for the modified camber changes vs the preferred camber settings outlined in the Chrysler pre 2010 chart. Even so, after seeing the alignment differences, I opted not to change out the suspension parts with the kits mentioned above.



Comparatively to the 2011 Target camber specs vs my 2010, looks like the front camber differs L (-1.05 vs -0.4) and R (-1.45 vs -1.0) and the rear camber L (-0.75 vs -1.1) and R (-0.75 vs -0.9). So a -0.5 difference (more camber to 2011) in front camber and -0.25 (more camber on 2010) difference in rear camber.

Comparatively to the pre 2011 chart, looks like the front camber differs L (-1.05 vs -0.05) and R (-1.45 vs -0.35) and the rear camber L (-0.75 vs -0.75) and R (-0.75 vs -0.75).
So a -1.0 difference (more camber to 2011) in front camber and 0 difference in rear camber.

All that being said, looks like the majority of the camber change went to the front.
