Bilstien Shock Review on15

Hi all,

I haven't posted in awhile but figured I would post a lil review on my equipment since its been about 8 months installed

2015 limited hemi
SRT Springs
SRT sway bars F&R
Front n Rear Bilstien Shocks ( with proper mounts cause I had the load levelers)

20x10 Blk srt spider monkeys 295 hankooks



the ride is absolutely awesome...( I owned a 14 srt GC) so I can compare with Knowledge

its right up there...not in power of course with an SRT but the handling and drive manners are top notch...zero nose dive on acceleration and extrememly solid..not harsh ride. the sway bars have her cornering like its on rails with hardly any body roll for an suv.

I actually may be in the market in the near future for another SRt but that's only cause im insane..lol

But having this is actually making me possibly push it off for awhile...my only gripe is I hate the audio...I loves my srt 19 speaker system.

so if anyone is having any thoughts on some of these mods and I cant say enough on how extremely pleased I am....and im the type that is hard to please with the handling of autos..

Im nyc on the absolute terrible roads ..shes solid not 1 lil squeak or rattle.

just awesome quality feeling.....Bilstiens have always been my fav shock on the market...had them on my 330 ci back in the day.


*** Borla cat Bk coming soon

Re: Bilstien Shock Review on15

Does anyone know the difference between road magnet mid drops and srt springs. Is one better than the other when installing on a limited wk2 with stock suspension. Planning to go with bilsteiin shocks also

Re: Bilstien Shock Review on15

Srt springs will only drop you about 1 inch.

Road magnets will drop MUCH more. depends on how much you want to be lowered
