hey guys,
Random story warning.

So about a month ago, my chally got hit by a dumbass running a red light.

he hit me right behind my seat, and basically straight into the wheel. Which after getting a (no fault!) police report back and sending him to Key Auto Body in Matawan NJ ( extremely happy with the service, if anyone on here was wondering) The suspension was done, so they replaced it with the other guy's wallet. I got my car back today, only to be surprised that it was raised a good 2 inches at least in the back, it didnt cost me anything!
I want to post pictures but its already dark out, so tomorrow!

Do you think they had to do that to replace the suspension? My dad's the rear end guy, not me, so I really have no idea why they would other than that...

I agree. it would be hard to jack it up unless they put the wrong springs in it or they did something else that they probably shouldnt have sone.

what shocks do you have?

A 2 inch difference in ride height doesn't sound right. Please post some before and after pics of your ride.

Check the part number tags that are attached to the rear springs and shocks. Call any Dodge dealer and they can tell you what car those parts should go in. I think your repair shop ordered the wrong part numbers; car is sitting way too high.

Yeah that looks like some of the old 60's 70's cars that people use to put air shocks on to raise the rear so they could put bigger tires on the rear to keep them from rubbing.

I agree. Something is not right. The jacked up look would look good if you had bigger tires. The tires now look lost in the wheel well.
