If so what kit did you use? Will kits for 2008-2010 models work? I keep hearing conflicting opinions...

Just fyi, saleen is known to be very uncustomer friendly, and have been putting out subpar parts lately. The sms body parts are garbage. Noone I've seen with any parts have been 100% happy. Wait for a true exhaust and suspension company release something, you will be happy you did. It shouldn't be long...

I'm really suprised there's no suspension out for the 11's, did the factory really change them that much?

SC05,
The 2010 Challenger suspension works with the 2011. If you have an RT 6-speed, you will also need to upgrade the rear shocks to the Bilsteins over the factory Nivomat self leveling shocks.

The differences between an 10 and 11 are minimal. You do need to know if you have Nivomat rears. Nivomats are load carrying shock absorbers and require a special spring to lower.

Actually its not a special spring you need , you just need to replace the Nivomats with a non self leveling shock . Best bet would be to buy the lowering kit that comes with 4 new springs and 2 new front struts and 2 new rear shocks . this way all components are designed to work together

Eibach Pro-System Kit

I heard that simply adding lowering springs will negatively impact the car's handling... IMO, given that (if true), I'd go for a set of good coilovers with dampening control... lower your ride AND improve handling! More expensive, but alot of bang for the buck!
