Re: Road Magnet Aggressive Drop Quesiton

So how difficult is it to install the drop springs?

Does anyone know if there is a major difference in the ride quality between the aggressive and mid drop kits?

Re: Road Magnet Aggressive Drop Quesiton

It's all good now. Ended up being the sway bar which wasn't tightened. Couldn't be happier with these springs now

Black Ops- please keep us posted on the camber kit!

We did em twice because we had the fronts on the rears lol fist time 1:30 min second time 45min. Lol.

The ride is almost like oem IMO I feel they perform best in Track mode they did a great job with em. And with a 100%satisfaction guarantee you really have nothing to lose right lol.

The ONLY problem and regret I have with the road magnet springs is that I wish I would have put them on the day I picked my SRT up from the dealership. I wasted too much time with the eibachs.

I have the 2.8 RM's and with the stock rim/tire combo, had no rubbing issues whatsoever. Now I have my 22's with 285/40/22's and the tires are occasionally rubbing the fender in the rears when I hit a bump. The looks of this wheel/drop combo for now is worth it to me so I don't mind too much. On my next set of tires, I'll probably go with 285/35/22's though.

The 285/35 is definatly needed the 40 is just too much tire I think your problem will be easily solved.

Re: Road Magnet Aggressive Drop Quesiton

Did anybody trim some off the stock front bumpstops when installing the front springs? I did just for good measure cut about 1" off just in case like with the wk1
