Re: SRT8 springs with WK Bilsteins.

All I had done was remove the existing Magnaflow muffler i had on and replaced it with a straight pipe leading to a Y pipe to the srt dual pipes that go over the axle, then have the srt dual resinators and tips out the back.

Hey Fabian... did you ever take those measurements? I think I wanna do what you did, but I am leery of tire rub issues I already have with the stock suspension under load.

Do you guys like apples???

I just seen on Wikipedia that White WK with SRT reps and SRT Sways are .2 faster in the 1/4 than black or blue. And if there's a tall sexy black guy driving than it's .3 faster than the others.

How ya like them apples???

Re: SRT8 springs with WK Bilsteins.

I think I have seen the man you are referencing Nate...and I can vouch: 100% accurate with his information. White WK's are faster...and how do I know this? Well, I own one!

Re: SRT8 springs with WK Bilsteins.

ok... but the question still stands... where is he? I just wanted to find out if he took those measurements and what they were. Oh well, maybe I will go stand in line and see if I can find him

No rubbing issues. I was referring to the looks only, nothing else.

Re: SRT8 springs with WK Bilsteins.

I guess i should yupdate... i did this mod.. bilstiens and SRT8 springs..

no sway bar mods.

The ride is much much better.. hell thats the way it should have come form the factory... either way its a worth while mod...

I did measure the drop before/after and it dropped 1/2" on the fornt and like almost 3/4" in the rear.. FYI this is on a CRD GC..
