Would you recommend this over the Eibach's?

I'm looking for a lower, stiffer and sportier ride but I don't want too low.

Errh, lol, I'm leaning towards the Eibach, but as soon as I read about something else I want that instead, lol, I guess I just have to stay off the Internet until I got them in my hands.

I don't want as low as the Road Magnet springs are, I know that for sure.

Re: What lowering springs are the bees knees these days?

I put the mopars on my 2016, and I love the feel, the look.. but even after alignment, it feels off.

Speed wobble at 120kmh / 80mph onward.

Hard cornering has it more or less turn a lot wider than stock, almost slipping to outside. (cornering with some speed behind me, but nothing crazy, after all it is a heavy vehicle)

I was pondering ordering some sways or links, no idea what to try honestly. Part of me wants to just say screw it and go back to stock height just so the cornering and speed wobble is gone.

I'll be going to the dealership soon to get mine installed and hate to hear this. Who did the install for you? Also did you get an alignment after?

the dealership did the install, and alignment. I didn't get the alignment specs though, I forgot to ask for them.

driving under 80 mph, it's great. corners feel a little wider, which to me is just camber issues. I'm going to talk to the master tech tomorrow or the next day, see what he suggests.

I love the look for sure

When making my appointment at the dealership, I asked their recommendation on when to align after the springs install because I know the springs would settle some more. He said that they would align it right after install and if there were any problems, to bring it back and they would align it again after it settles. Maybe try this first and then go from there.

Re: What lowering springs are the bees knees these days?

I'll jump in here too. Like others on this thread, after going through a number of threads on this site, I have been all over the map in terms of springs.

I had my mind made up on the RM Mids (not Hybrids), but I feel that they are still too low. I do occasionally tow with my SRT, and I have a family of 5 (teenage kids), so I need to be sure the setup is practical - no rubbing, no hitting bump stops on bumps, etc.

Everything points to the Eibach set-up for the more moderate drop (looks perfect to my eyes) and stiffer set-up, but I'm concerned that the ride will be too rough for family trips....

Re: What lowering springs are the bees knees these days?

Seems like i run into the same dilemma on every vehicle i have , to actually get it low enough to good usually end up sacrificing ride quality and driveability

There's also a new mopar spring manufactured by eibachs that won't hurt the warranty.
