BiLstien shocks & SRT Springs Installed..

The final pieces are done...2015 Limited hemi

Front & Rear Bilstien shocks (UPPER REAR MOUNTS NEEDED,,I had self leveling shocks)

SRT Front & REAR Springs
SRT Front & rear SWay Bars
SRT 20x10 Blk Reps w 295/45r20 Hankooks

the SRT springs are perfect not too low but tightens up the whole ride unbelievable, also brings the rear down especially since I had the leveling shocks,,,along with the Bilstiens and SRT sway bars the ride is truely awesome...and Ive owned 2 SRTs

Nice. I'd love to feel how well it drives compared to stock.

BiLstien shocks & SRT Springs Installed..

do you have any before pictures? or more pictures with the SRT springs?

I was looking to only do rear SRT springs and OE rear shocks. Mainly to level out my stance.

These things have WAY to much wheel gap in the rear and having LL's doesn't help, lol

Like I said it's not much of a slammed drop like Eibach Springs would be... It's more of a solid handling application... I do have pics with out the springs if u look at my past posts... On my cell now

I STRONGLY RECOMMEND you do not just do the rear... It will be very unbalanced handling wise
The front Springs are very cheap.. It's the rear that expensive

it definitely doesn't look Eibach low (which is what I like)... I was just curious how much lower it dropped the stance. I would assume an inch all around?

Yes I would say about an inch all around...more noticeable in rear than in front..which was what I had hoped..cause like you said the rear was way jacked up
