So I know the whole spring setup has been beat to death! And after doing some research I discovered that with a 6 speed R/T you will need to replace the struts as we are equipped with Nivomats, BUT....when changing my exhaust out, I noticed I had bilstein rears, am I missing something?

As long as you don't have Nivomats, you can get away with changing just the springs... What brand front struts do you currently have?

I wonder why I wouldn't have the nivomats in the rear??

Not sure bout the fronts, will have to take a peek after work!

I have a base 27F 6-speed ... no nivomats.
My Hotchkis sprngs are going in today!
I'll have picks before, during and after install, along with Razors Edge bump steer kit!

I noticed that too man, everyone said you need the yellow bilsteins to be able to use lowering springs, but I had my car on the lift at the auto shop and noticed I had black shocks that said bilstein. Kinda confused me too.
