lowering hemi wk2

Hi guys, I'm new to jeeps I have always had muscle cars and I just recently traded my 06 gto for a new hemi gc. I obviously like speed and i habe a vision of making my gc comparable to a 1st gen srt. I was wondering if anyone had any idea I f the factory srt8 suspension can be swapped to a hemi gc or does it need major modifications. I work for a jeep dealer so parts are at cost I just want to know if it is possible I think it would be sweet. Any input is appreciated.

We dont know yet with all the factory gadgetry. It will not be like the last gen where all the SRT suspension parts fit the nonsRT with no modification needed.

Yeah that's what I figured but as long as it is possible in the near future ill go through the modifications to make it fit. I put my friends 1st gen srt wheels as a demo and it actually looks pretty good so I think I'm getting the quadratec black replicas for mine. Really want to lower it.
