Sounds nice, no pics though. Did you happen to buy the white 14' that was just on autotrader?

Re: Mod'd SRT new to forum

I was using my Ipad and couldn't attach pics for some reason. Yeah, I bought the mod'd white one. Nice truck and in perfect condition. Just a bit low for me though and the ride control via the elec. shocks is compromised a bit due to the height (compressed shocks). I'll be working on that this winter for some summer track time. I love the truck.

Re: Mod'd SRT new to forum

I'm curious as to the air bag setup he had in the rear? What are your thoughts?

As far as the height just buy a set of road magnet mids and throw the rears in! Very easy install in the rear.

Did he have control arms in the rear to fix the camber? Looks like it's corrected pretty good for that big of a drop.

That looks good how far would you be able to adjust it? If I want to tow with my gc?

The truck already has RM mids in the front and RM aggressives in the rear, hence the 1.8/1.8 drop. The truck has BO rear adj control arms and I put BO endlinks on it.

The front camber is at -2 and the rear at about -1.3.

The air bags are only for additional load in the rear. One could say that adding air to the bags might help in dialing out any understeer in truck ie stiffer compression or higher height/more rake, but that's really the wrong way to do it. I'll be tracking this truck this summer after some others mods and it'll be interesting to see how well it behaves and neutral it is with a lowered ride height and some lowered spring combination.

As it sits, it looks great but the dampening is compromised a bit which I intent to fix.

It's the Wireless One kit. I haven't messed with it much but in looking at the wireless remote, I can adjust the pressure from 0 psi to 120psi.

The road magnet options are
Mids: 1" front/ 1.8" rear
Extreme: 1.8" front/2.8" rear

I'd throw the full set of the mids on... I think you will be very happy with them. Mine handles great.
