Re: SRT8 springs with WK Bilsteins.

Cant go wrong with either the srt stock springs, or WK Eibachs, or the srt Eibachs IMO. Depends on how low you want to go, and what other suspension mods you want to do. Me, I probably really should get the Bilstein shocks with these srt eibachs since I already replaced one blown strut and now I think the other side is leaking now. The rear is great, just hits a little hard over bigger bumps because of the limited travel with the stock WK bumpstops, but I think its whats keeping the rear shocks from blowing out on me so i'll live with it.

Re: SRT8 springs with WK Bilsteins.

Picture of the srt eibachs in the rear, already compressed just from the weight of the car.



There's like an inch or two clearance back there before the bumpstop hits. Sweeeettttt

Did you notice a difference in ride?
Yes, it's a bit tighter and maybe little bumpier.. Not major tho.

Re: SRT8 springs with WK Bilsteins.

Looks great. Whats the measurements you have now, like from the bottom of the fenders to the ground? Is the rear up just a little bit more from the front?

Re: SRT8 springs with WK Bilsteins.

^^ Yes the front is a bit lower, not as much as an SRT8. I think it has to do with the engine weight... I'll post measurements later this week.

Re: SRT8 springs with WK Bilsteins.

Can always throw some cement blocks in the cargo area and strap one on the front hood if you wanted it a little lower.
