I'm looking to lower my 2010 SRT8. Definitely can't afford coil overs right now. Trying to decide between the Hotchkis or the Eibach Sportslines. I like that the Sportslines as they have a slightly lower drop but my main concern is getting the best quality springs and the best performance. Any input here would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Both are great springs. Either one IMO you can't go wrong. I use to run Eibach on all my Mustangs and never once had a complaint about them at all. I would think they would be the same for a Challenger.

Being that I have actaully used Hotchkis on a Challenger (ran them on my '11 R/T) I would have to say go with them. I was happy with the drop and the ride quality didn't suffer much at all. It was about what you would expect from a lowering spring. A little bit stiffer but it don't rattle your teeth over every single bump.

I would go with Hotchkis.... Sportlines look too low in the rear IMO.

I've got Eibach Pro Kit Springs and love the look and the handling. I feel the Sportlines are a bit low.

Just curious why not mopar stage ones? Is it because the SRTs don't benefit like the RTs do?

What are the measurements front & rear to the top of the wheel arch with the Hotchkis?
28" front to the top of the wheel arch, 29" rear on 275/40/20 tires. There is 1/2" gap on the front, 1" rear.

Ok thanks, from other posts that's about 7/8" lower front & rear than the MOPAR Stage Ones. I don't know what the tire size's are for the MOPAR measurements I have but it gives a good indication for me.

Thanks.
