Re: Lowering Springs

Sure, but if nothing else was changed during install, then the amount of change from the new spring can easily be measured.

yes drop is drop agreed. but if someone gives a wheel well measurement.....and someone else does math it could also lead to confusion.



regardless, lets see what turns up in a new thread.

hey scott be sure to ask about shocks or other suspension mods ??

Re: Lowering Springs

Exactly...doesn't matter what actual height you start or end with, it's the difference between the two.

And everyone needs to know that well-to-floor measurements are only good for your own reference...meaningless to anyone else. We need starting and ending measurements from well to wheel center.

Re: Lowering Springs

I will be adding a set of 2010 SRT springs and WK bilsteins to my 07WK Limited Hemi some time in the next few weeks. Plan to not only measure before and after but to also take a few pics.

Re: Lowering Springs

Sounds good, Joe. I added rear SRT springs to my 08 Limited about a month ago. I got .75" drop max from them. Not enough for what I was looking for. I need to go to the next step.
