Hello guys
I have a question.
Do you think my original suspension ( Bilstein high performance) are already lowered?(i read somewhere 1/2 inch lowered but seems even more
I know fingers are not a really precise technique but compare to other pics or videos I saw on the web it seems already low. (Btw i have nor al fingers:) )

I was thinking to get lower springs but now I have some doubts that the tires could "touch the fenders" if I lower more.

Any thoughts?

Nope looks about the same height as mine. What does it measure from the fender lip there above your fingers to the ground? Mine is 29 1/8" with stock wheels and tires.

I should add that is on my drivers side. My passenger side is about 3/8" lower. And the rear is an inch higher than the front.

My understanding is there is already 1/2" lower yes. H&R and Eibach Sportlines have a bigger drop. Eibach Pro's should not cause you to be too low. Mopar Stage 1s will not.



I don't think you would rub unless your wheel offset was large, or tires oversized. The 15+ have rolled fenders stock.

A guy,
I have a question.
The 1/2 drop of the scat pack is because the springs or because Bilstein coilovers are shorter?

I was thinking
That if , if the ride is lower because the springs ,HeR lower springs will not add 1.5 inches to the already lower scat pack but substitute the actual drop(1/2 ) to the final one (1. 5)
So At the end the final drop will be 1 inch.
Does it make sense(with my bad english? Lol)

What do you think?

Looks great.
How much space between tires and fenders?
Any problem of "touch" between tires and fenders?

You get two fingers in between the tire and fender. No rubbing at all and no "touch" between tires and fenders.

Since the scat is lower 1/2", you will get 1/2" less drop than the spring manufacturer suggests. If they say 1.5" drop for an R/T, and the Scat Pack is already 1/2" lower, than you would get an additional 1" drop. A Guy
