Eibach Pro-Kit Performance Springs for a '14 SRT?



Does anyone know if the suspension is the same on the '14 SRT as the '12-'13 SRT's? I want to order the Eibach Pro-Kit Performance Springs and the only ones they are showing (part number 28109.540) fit the '12-'13 SRT's. These springs lower the front approximately 0.8" and the rear 1.1".

Secondly forgive my ignorance but other than the camber adjustment is there anything else that needs to be adjusted or to be concerned about?

Just camber needs to be adjusted but the alignment shop may adjust other things like toe etc.. suspension is the same

Re: Eibach Pro-Kit Performance Springs for a '14 SRT?

Nice! Going to order up a set as well. Only going to put in the rears however, as the front seems plenty low for Colorado year-round use. Wish they sold rears only! Have a never installed of fronts now for a 2012 Escalade, '11 Jeep Cherokee 5.7, a '13 Acadia Denali, and soon, a front set for a 2014 SRT!

Re: Eibach Pro-Kit Performance Springs for a '14 SRT?

I have a brand new set that you can have , only problem is I`m in Australia which I purchased for my GC SRT8 13" and it did not make my car lower it made the rear higher. F:::Ked if I know what the situation is, as I have read many articles on both forums and it does not make sense, The Company that I purchase the Eibach Pro lower (28109.540) kit for told me that there looking into it, but that was 2 months ago. My original rear springs are shorter in height than the Eibach springs ( Which that tells me I have a ****en problem already) , and I don't know if the Imported models have different setups. I want to order a set of Bwoodies but hesitant to do so as I don't what another set of spring which I can`t use. I had fitted bwoody to my GC SRT8 08 without a glitch, but I`m trying to work it out from what you guys are saying and what I can see in pictures of Eibach springs fitted to your rigs and they look awesome, Hence the reason why I ordered the Eibach instead of the Bwoody. Also I fitted the front Eibach springs to the rear of my car and looked awesome but camber was ****en bad. so I fitted the originals back on and don't know what to do. The factory stance on my car is 815mm (32.6")front and 855mm(34.2") rear ,as I don't know what the USA Jeep heights from factory are . So this is where I`m at the moment.

Re: Eibach Pro-Kit Performance Springs for a '14 SRT?

I have the eibachs and they def. dropped my Jeep no doubt. It does take a little biit of driving to get the full drop...but I could tell from the start. You must have the wrong springs or something cause the export suspension is the EXacT same as the US version.

Unhappy Re: Eibach Pro-Kit Performance Springs for a '14 SRT?

This is what I'm trying to explain to Chris at speed logic, That from first moment that we lowered the car off the hoist ,the vechile was about 1/2' higher from original height. Now I don't care what anybody says that even if you let it settle for 6 months it will not drop 2" , these springs that I have might have the right part number but they are not the ones that you guys have got. My original springs are shorter that the Eibach springs this is the first sign of somethings not right.

Re: Eibach Pro-Kit Performance Springs for a '14 SRT?

Installed the rear Eibach's and it dropped the rear just a bit, and I wonder, do these have auto-leveling shocks? My 2011 Laredo had them, and when we installed the springs, the front was dumped, while the rear was only down 3/4".

Love the look, but an extra 1/2 to 3/4" would be just fine!
