Want to add SRT springs - any issues??

Looking to get a set of SRT springs - was wondering if I will run into any issues (i.e. clearance issues) having the staggered Viper reps (20x9 front, 20x10 rear). Also, anything else need to be done or is it just a straight swap - springs for springs??

Re: Want to add SRT springs - any issues??

i have the srt springs with my 22x9.5 and i have no issues at all. I dont see why you would unless you have a really thick sidewall but it doesnt look like you do in your sig pic. mine were just a straight up swap. the rears were simple but I had to compress the fronts to get them on the strut. It wasnt a difficult job at all however.

Re: Want to add SRT springs - any issues??

I got a set of OEM SRT8 springs.. (Jeep) no problems.. straight swap..... but I think there may be some things to change out if you do more than just the springs... ask Scottina06. He knows everything

Re: Want to add SRT springs - any issues??

Don't mean to hijack the thread, but has anyone actually done this (stock SRT springs into a non SRT) yet? If so, what is the front/back measurement from the ground to the top of the wheel well at the wheel centerline? Also, what diameter tire is being used?
