Wow! Nice stance! I agree with the other. Ours cars should already come stock that way. How much did the springs lower the car?

Thanks, Jorge

Since you just did all this I have a quick question...

Can you use the same "links" for attaching to the sway bars?
Or did you have to upgrade them (or maybe included with the sway bar kit)

I used the same links when I did my SRT8. The front end alignment is a must.

That's a great looking ride height. I'll be interested to read of your impressions, pros and cons, after you've had a chance to live with it for a while.

I lowered my old Audi A6 and while I loved the way it looked, I wasn't a big fan of the way it rode after that; way to much bounce going on.

I haven't yet read a review of a person who was unhappy with a Challenger drop, so I suspect your experience will be the same.

BTW, very cool of your family to come up with that kind of present. Nice!

So are the Mopar springs a 1 inch drop?
After measuring mine now and haveing a friend measure his stock R/T Classic it seems that they are a 1.5"- 2" drop...My cars front center wheelwell sits @ 29" and the rear is @ 29.5".The R/T Classic sits at 31" all around...hmm....:scratchhead:
