Re: * Skunkd's 2015 White GC Altitude *

My rear Eibach Pro Dampers started clunking after awhile with the road magnet mids as well. I think there just isn't enough length and travel provided to make them last with these springs in there rear at least. Pretty significant drop with the mids over what the Pro Dampers are designed for as far as operating range with the Pro Kit Springs. I ended up selling it this week and going back to a new Challenger. Was fun to learn and do a lowered vehicle at least once and did get some good use out of it when it was looking great. And it's people like us that do these mods that get the engineers at Chrysler's attention to apply some of these design cues to the next gen GC's! The exact thing happened to the 2015 Challengers. Results of researching from enthusiast community and giving the customers what they want. Gotta love when that's possible to do these days. Mopar or No Car!

How bad did you make out on the sale?

I agree I don't know how long these bilsteins will last but they are the most heavy duty shock out there since they are monotube not twintube like the eibachs and factory shocks. So I will report back on how long they last. They do carry a lifetime warranty but not sure if bilsteins will cover them if the damage is from constantly bottoming out so the verdict is unknown now. I'm sure they would replace them once but question you after the second time.

I really need to know if the srt rear dampers will fit on a non srt. I know they have electronic dampening controllers but what if we just don't plug the sensor in? Will they mount up to a non srt wk2 and work at a standard setting? I don't hear the srt guys having this problem with road magnets

In the end road magnet needs to work with a damper manufacturer and produce one that is a viable long life solution for non srt wk2's on road magnet springs.

Holy shit the bilsteins are ducking amazing!!! And I can definitely tell a huge difference with the srt rear sway bar and end links in!! Drives like a car now. Perfect. Well worth the money for the rear SRT sway bar and endlinks if you want a more stable ride around curves.

Re: * Skunkd's 2015 White GC Altitude *

Wish I did the bilsteins with the road magnet mids from the start hindsight is 20/20... would have saved me a lot of time and money to do it in one shot. I have a good feeling about these shocks holding up from the way they drive. Plus the rears are the only one prones to blowing out on Road magnet mids and are easily replaced as they are just a shock no spring to worry about on the rear. They come with a lifetime warranty which could come in handy.

Thanks! Don't do it, once you buy it it will become a bigger money pit 😄. I wish I didn't care about the warranty cause I would have already slapped the ripp supercharger on this thing already!

Do you have to trim the bump stops with the bilsteins? Still riding stock shocks on the rm mids for now. Please keep us updated. Your initial review of the rm's helped me make the decision to buy them.
