Hey Guys,
I am trying to lower my 2010 Challenger R/T Classic Plum Crazy, However I ran into a issue, 2010 classics have Nivomat which will require me to get coilovers vs lowering springs because lowering spring will not work for Nivomat suspension. As you know coilovers are very pricy prob be more than 1g. But according to Eibach I can get Eibach Spring 2895.140 + Eibach Shocks 2873.840 and it will do the job , they will run up about 700-800 bucks. Not sure which route i should go have anyone else lowered an classic Nivomat before ? And I am new to the car game not sure what the differences by getting a coilover or Eibach Spring 2895.140 + Eibach Shocks 2873.840 . Please advise, thank you very much for your help!!!

Just did my lowering with their sportlines.

Did you actually check the shocks? I thought I had Nivomat on mine as I have a 6-speed with STP. Seems it was a crapshoot on the factory and you may have standard shocks, I had the Bilsteins, here is a shot of before and after of my PCP

I bought take-off SRT shocks, springs and struts off eBay for around $300. My Nivomats are now resting comfortably in the landfill.

what!!!!
you can install mopar lowering spring, stage ones with Nivomats, as long as their not the load levelling, simply look at your rear shocks, are they 2.5 to 3 inches in diameter, if so install the spring, if not, for less than 150.00 replace the two rear shocks

When I lowered my 10 R/T with nivomats I just replaced my shocks with a set from Summit. Cant remember the brand but it was not very expensive at all. May have been monroes
