Lowering Springs Help

I have found these are the 3 springs most brad used in our WK2. Looking for a mid drop and the best one. Anyone with these options can opine will be great.

1- Eibach Pro Kit. Claim 1" front & 2" rear $285

Eibach Pro-Kit Spring Set



2- Road Magnet mid drop. Claim 1" front & 1.8" rear. $379

3- SRT OEM. Don't know if this is the factory one or an upgrade one from mopar performance. Not showing also the drop measurements. They are the cheapest also $247. Is this the one that fit our non wk2? What's the drop".

The pictures aren't the mid drop right? because it is pretty low. Nice ride.
Whats the mopar kit for the non wk2 srt. The only mopar lower spring I found was the one I post in # 3 option.

Re: Lowering Springs Help

I heard some alignment issues with RM and also too low.

So I deside to go for SRT springs with or without bleinten 4600.

Don't know why the front srt springs are way cheaper compare with the rear.

Front $83
Rear $340

SPRING. Left, Right. Front Coil. Suspension, Front made by Mopar. #05181500AB

SPRING. Rear Coil. Suspension, Rear; Suspension, Rear [SDX] made by Mopar. #05181502AA

Re: Lowering Springs Help

You don't have to buy them new, there are a lot out there with very low mileage... that's how I got mine.

Here's a pic with SRT front and rear sways, SRT springs, Bilstein shocks/struts and SRT wheels OEM 20x10 Black Chrome. Just the black center caps missing that should arrive next week.

Looks nice.
Yeah, I posted and I have been looking for a week on the SRT forum with no luck yet.
Did you try the SRT springs with the OEM shocks before putting the bilstein one to see if they drop any " in the rear compared with OEM shocks? Thinking on getting the bilstein if they really drop anything in the rear vs OEM shock till needs replacement in the future.

Re: Lowering Springs Help

Dam SRT owners. lol
No one has the SRT springs for sale. I guess I will just drop $340 for just the rear SRT springs set.

Or if someone can really confirm that the rear Bilstein 4600 shocks will drop something like the srt springs, will be a better buy as the price is like $160 a set.

that's what chad from Blackops sold me it also might look that way because you have a different size and offset rims i believe your
concavo cw-s5 are 22" x 10.5" 35mm offset
reps are 22" x 10" +45mm

That kit will likely drop .7" F and 1.7" R from OEM SRT springs. So I will think that's to much for non srt ones. I haven't found anyone yet using this kit on the non srt wk2.
