Anyone with a Scat Pack wide body put lowering springs on yet? Would like to see pictures and what springs you used.

Thanks in advance.

there are quite a few people running H&R/Eibach/Mopar springs. I was dead set on going with the mopar springs and having dodge install them to retain 100% warranty compliance, then I saw they list our cars incompatible with the mopar springs when they obviously work just fine. I'm guessing another way to cover their butt in the event of a shock failure, looking for something to blame. So knowing that, I have not done anything with mine yet until I can find a good dealer that's kinda mod friendly that will agree to take care of me if they get the labor money.

I went ahead and purchased Eibach Pro springs. Just waiting for a friend to get me in at the local dealer to install.

looks great.. I'm going to run Eibachs as well.. probably after the first of the year. I have a few other things I'd like to put that money towards first. LOL If I have all my credit card debt paid off the wife wont bat an eye at what I spend on the car, seems like a fair trade for me. Otherwise, even though she wont make it a big deal, i still KNOW shes in disapproval of me spending $700 on powering the car when I could make a $700 CC payment..LOL

How is the ride now with those springs ?

It looks awesome!

I have the same car and color (although with boring black calipers). Did you have (or care) to bring the rear camber back to spec? I read on another forum someone saying they'd need to buy camber bolts because the camber was off by 0.3 (I have no idea how significant that is)

The guy that installed them did a 4 wheel alignment and he was able to get all measurements back in the green.

i do want to add to this discussion something I figured out this past weekend... I went to a meet and greet and parked with another guy that has a 2019 scatpack car. His is setup like mine other than the WB package that I have, his is not a widebody. I grabbed my tape measure and measured different points of the car to the ground to compare as the WB cars look higher than the non WB car. He and I were within 1/8 of one another from splitter to ground, from side skirt to ground and within close to the same measurement at the exhaust tip to the ground. However stock I can put 3 fingers in my front arch and 4 fingers in my rear arch. The flares on the WB cars are arched higher than the standard fenders are.

The guy works for a Subaru dealership and he did this at the dealer on his own time.

This how the wide body cars should have come from the factory. That is the only thing additional I could want on my car. Otherwise, I think the widebody is a beast..I love just looking at mine..driving it never gets old!

I am gathering data now on suspension as i've found the springs everyone seems to be running arent as strong as the stock springs. I'm not looking to soften the ride of my car so I am trying to get something comparable to the stock spring rates. The stock springs on a WideBody ScatPack are the stiffest spring rates dodge has ever put on one of their cars. This paired with the different swaybars, and the tuning of the suspension being different than all the other active suspension cars including the WB Hellcat make it truly a unique car this year. I am trying to personally pair a new spring rate close to the stock spring rate as well as stick with a linear spring so the typical H&R and Eibach kits aren't going to work for what I'm trying to accomplish.
