Re: My springs are on the way!

Did you ever consider SRT springs?

Re: My springs are on the way!

after looking at the pic on my much larger laptop and not my Samsung note....I think it looked perfect. maybe the front would've dropped a little more with time....but if you say the rear measured lower....then something was off. Do you have load leveling rear shocks? ie. tow package?

Re: My springs are on the way!

I did have the LL rears, but replaced all wih Bilstein 4600s. After the swap the front and rear are now perfectly level! By tape measure, with these Bilsteins, the front actually sits 1/2" higher than stock and the rear is down about 1", and IMO looks better. Perfect now for us, anyway. The ride with these shocks is a lot better now too. I'll post pics when I get home.

No. I knew they were an option, but thought I wanted to go lower.

Turned out to be an expensive "experiment". But I really like it now.

I absolutely love lowered SRTs, just wasn't the look for us.

That has to be why the rear springs measured lower then....

As we already discussed Attitude, I am in the exact same boat. I might try the srt springs and get rid of the rm mids I have now, but I am just not sure. I am going to be angry to have to pay a shop again to take the mids off and either go back to stock or try the srt springs. Then I am going to have to get another alignment. This was quite an expensive mistake.

I know. I essentially paid twice:
1. To install everything + alignment
2. To remove Mids & replace with OEM springs + alignment

Not complaining, as it was my choice to try this out, just a warning or good real-world information for those looking to run our setup on non-SRT models.

My springs are on the way!

I plan on installing just rear SRT springs to help level the stance.

The rake from the factory is a bit extreme. I even have standard load rear shocks and the gap is huge.

Here is a pic that I took yesterday in a parking lot next to a stock height Altitude. Hard to tell here, but it's a subtle (noticeable to me) height difference:

I like a "slightly modified" stock look
Nice & level. Rear brought down about an inch and the front is actually about 1/2" taller. However it turned out, I like it much better


OEM springs + Bilstein 4600s seemed to do it for me.

Like I tell friends that ask me why... I just can't roll stock, LOL
