CRD SRT Conversion

Has anyone done a front end conversion on a CRD 2008 yet? I'm curious if the bumper and everything fits correctly.

When it comes to suspension what is the best route to get the ride height where a stock SRT is at? Buying used shocks and struts with springs?

Re: CRD SRT Conversion

As long as you use the 08 SRT components you should not have any problems that aren't easily resolved. If you're after stock SRT height and handling qualities, you'll need the stock SRT springs, good struts/shocks (many of us use Bilsteins), and SRT sway bars. I did the complete SRT suspension setup (lowered mine though) but used Eibach SRT lowering springs and their SRT sway bars. I also did the full body kit, the Rep. wheels and used the stock SRT tire sizes.....siped Toyo Proxes STII's. If you're after the cool looks and superior handling, you won't be disappointed. Expect a firmer ride though....but not ridiculous. Even the wife never complains, except when I go around corners too fast, LOL.
