SRT rear springs

so in an attempt to level out my 2011 2wd i scooped up some SRT rear springs and installed over the weekend. Long story short not happy with the final outcome, rear def is now sitting lower than the front! I'm assuming this may be due to not having 4wd which may sit lower than my front. So now I'm contemplating installing SRT springs in the front or is there a way I can possibly add a spacer in the rear, I know i did something similar on my Infiniti using an Energy Suspension spring spacer. I was wondering if anyone here has successfully used them in our application

Re: SRT rear springs

Not to hijack the post but...

Did you also change the rear swaybar links to the SRT version?

Did you change your rear shocks to the 4100s?

Is their a noticeable rider difference between the front and the rear?

Thanks

Nope, literally just the springs 😁

The stock rear end was a bit all over the place and kind of harsh. But after installing the SRT's I noticed the rear is way more planted (in a good way) and feel a ton better taking turns at speed.

Re: SRT rear springs

Hey antsjeep, newbie here, was wondering if you knew what the part number was for those rear springs...I would like to mod my new 2015 JGC limited the same way you did.
The look you have got going is exactly what I would like to have...
I don't have the tow package so I am pretty sure I don't have load leveling.
Also, where were you able to buy/get them?
Any help you could give would be most appreciated.

SRT rear springs

Found a stock Altitude by me and snapped a few shots of the rear to compare side by side. Really for anyone that's wants to know how this drop should look. Subtle but worth the money in my opinion.

The drop was about 1" give or take an 1/8".

SRT rear springs & stock non load leveling shocks on the left and 100% stock suspension on right (neither have tow package, my hitch was added later).

If you look close enough you can see my Mopar chrome tip hanging out
