Hello i have a 2014 3.6 SXT on 20” staggered Hellcat Replicas, 275/40 on front and 315/35 on rear. Looking for new shocks and spring to handle the big wide tires better. Looked at B6 billstein with Eibach Pro kit lowering springs but I’m afraid the wheels will contact the fender. Trying to keep it under 1K for a decent setup better than the OEM if possible . Thanks in advanced.

Yeah I think the Eibach Pro-kit will be too low in the rear. I have 275s in the rear and you can see it's close!

Yea thought so. I don’t know much bout cars but kinda new it would be too low , plus my rear wheel sticks out just a bit past the fender. Need to get my fenders rolled pretty soon.

I was able to do Eibach Pros with 315s. I did have to get control arms though to get the alignment right but I’m not rubbing with my MRR392 wheels. It’s all dependent on your backspacing.

Just my opinion but .5 inch isn’t worth the time, money and effort.
Yea that’s understandable , I’m not interested in lowering it , just looking for better than the factory on the V6.. but every spring set I come across are lowering springs. Wish I new more bout cars.

Yeah the Eibach Pros turned out way lower than I was expecting. It’s not for everyone and it’s not fun pulling into driveways😀

Something in between may work better for your needs. Just worried that you may not see much of a noticeable difference at .5 inches drop.

I’m gonna call couple shops and see if any will be willing to look at it and give me recommendations. Not an actual inspection but just drive up and visual look at it , not sure that makes sense . It did in my head 😂
My big concern is the back wheels 😢

Welcome to Challengertalk ;) My Eibach Pro drop on my SXT Plus

999994


999995


With my drop, I wouldn't be too concerned with any rubbing on fender lip. My tires are the same height as yours, so the clearance would be the same. Your tire obviously sticking out more, and my fenders rolled from the factory

BadAPP13 has 315s in rear on a more radical H&R spring drop. He hasn't been on the forum in 6 months, so unsure if he'll see this to advise on any rubbing over dips, etc.


The Hellraiser wheels are +25 offset, if your HR2 wheels are Factory Reproductions 11" they are +22 offset

Here is a 2014 on Sprortlines, which is even 1/2" lower than the Pros


Your car looks great BTW (y)

Your stock suspension is what is known as the Touring suspension. Touring is an old Celtic word meaning “Crappy Ride” or “Rides Like Crap”, depending on the translator.

The kit you have pasted the screen shot of will improve your car’s ride quality, cornering ability, and help shorten stopping distance.

In other words, that Mopar kit deserves some serious consideration based upon your stated goal(s) for the mod.

What about when you hit a speed bump or turn hard, or have anyone in the car?
While it is possible to go so low that things begin making contact when you hit bumps while carrying passengers, the vast majority of the time it just causes the suspension to bottom out (uncomfortable but not damaging except to the rubber jounce stops). If you are going fast enough or carrying enough weight, the underside of the car will actually make contact with the ground, and that will result in a beat up undercarriage.

You can always source the parts separately. The Bilstein front struts may be hard to find, at least they were when I was looking last. Everyone seemed to be sold out. I think it was TireRack that I ended up finding a couple in stock.

The rear Bilstein shocks can be found in several places - SW, SL, RA, TR, take your pick.

As for the springs, I’m sure SW would be able to get a set, if not check TR or SL.
