Re: SRT rear springs

Re: SRT rear springs

Did you guys need to use a coil spring compressor or does taking the bottom bolt out of the sway bar link and unbolting the bottom of the shock give you enough play to get the old one out?

Re: SRT rear springs

Check out this PDF on how to remove the rear springs.

Eventhough the instructions say to remove the axle from the hub there is no need to do so.

You will have to remove the following:
ABS sensor
Sway bar link
Brake caliper
camber link
Tension link

Then you will have enough travel from the lower control arm to remove the spring.


Hint: The job will go faster if you have an 18mm Gearwrench since there is not enough space for a rachet and socket in there.

I did not remove my brake calipers or ABS sensors but you do have to be careful with the tension on the brake line and make sure they are oriented towards the line at all time so that you don't damage them. Have to remove 18mm bolts/nuts on all 3 link arms, the bottom bolt/nut on the shock, and one end of the sway bar end links...that's where I had problems

Re: SRT rear springs

** update so the SRT springs that I purchased and installed did end up being front springs, which sucked...wasted a lot of time installing and reinstalling but lesson learned I guess. Finally got my hands on an actual rear set and installed over the weekend, I think I am good to go now!

Looks good, welcome to the club. I've got front and rear SRT coils installed with Bilsteins on all four corners.

Which Bilsteins are you using in the front ?
