Re: Srt swaybar to limited

Thanks for the info. Think I will try and buy the used rear one for sale then. Heard it is a great upgrade.

Re: Srt swaybar to limited

A better way is to switch both front and rear so you have a matched suspension. There are several manufacturers that make them, plus they are readily available at Cleveland Pick-A-Part, and probably the forums. On my WK I did Eibach springs/sways and Bilstein shocks. It's like a completely different vehicle from the stock WK. Well worth the $$$, IMO. On my Hemi LX I changed just the sways and it made a big difference too. I didn't want the stiffer SRT sprung ride, so I just did the sways and Bilsteins. Also, well worth the $$$.

Re: Srt swaybar to limited

Thanks. I already have done the springs and bil shocks. I found a good deal on the rear sway so now I just need to find the front. I hear the sways make a huge difference

Re: Srt swaybar to limited

Good! Sounds like you've got it figured out. I changed everything all at once on the WK and it was like day and night better. I handles like it's on rails now. On my LX, I did the sways and Bilsteins at the same time, and it made quite a difference too, but not as much as it would have if I had done the springs too. The wife didn't want the harsher ride, but just changing the shocks stiffened it up a little.

Re: Srt swaybar to limited

Im hoping so. Looking to do duals also. 2.5" is what I'm thinking. Need to do more research on best size

Re: Srt swaybar to limited

I think you'll find that 2 1/2 in. piped duals will be a little large for a stock 5.7 Hemi. The stock size on my LX is 2 1/4 in. A friend of mine with a cammed, big headed 5.7 tried 2 1/2 in. and ended up losing power. He had to have a couple 2 1/4 in. restrictors welded back in to get the power back. When I had my headers built I asked about duals, and the exhaust guy said it would scavenge better with a straight through 3 in. single system. I was sure he knew more about this stuff than I did, so that is what I had him build. It works fine, but I had to do 3 different muffler/resonator combinations (again using his recommendations) before it was reasonable (not too loud at cruise and with the MDS active) and passed the "wife" test.

Re: Srt swaybar to limited

I just purchased a set of SRT Bilstein's, springs, and end links which are going to be installed into my 05 limited soon. I also got the end links in the deal. Can the sway bars be installed after the other stuff is installed (like when I have the $ for them)? And also at the risk of sounding like a fool, what is the purpose of the end links and will I need them? Sorry if I'm stealing the original post, I just was doing a search and this was very close to my question. Thanks!

Well the endlinks are not required, but if your upgrading the whole suspension why scimp anywhere? I think it will be fine for a while to run stock links on an srt setup till you upgrade them. But if there is any order to what to install. It will be the shocks and springs at the same time. Every thing else can be put in later

Since I have the SRT end links, should I use them? I'm going to install the springs and SRT Bilstein's in the next couple weeks and then start shopping for the sway bars when I can siphon some more $$$ from the warden (aka wife). I appreciate your input big time Strongjeff!
