I had front srt8 bilsteins and compared to OEM front shocks were 1 inch shorter.

I suspect the valving and all specs are different but have no numbers.

What's difficult to understand is why they are still dealer only.

What about OEM srt8 struts? Is that dealership only?

I ran WK Bilstein with SRT8 Eibach and JBA Arms.

Granted it was not quite as low as one with the SRT8 Bilstein.....it was within 1/2 inch.

So i had a bit more sidewall than SRT to compensate.

Either way trim front OEM bumpstop so you aren't sitting on it.
