How does that happen? If your the sole owner how does it have ebiachs on it did dealer install them.

Dealer has to have it somewhere documented run your Vin through the Mopar owners connect.

Carfax has thing too that reads vins and find the service stuff on it

Do you have your paperwork? it should show the extra cost for the springs etc added to your loan

Re: '14 SRT, Front Suspension Collapsed?

And let me guess, Eibach wants you to provide a receipt proving you're the original purchasers. Which you are not.

Re: '14 SRT, Front Suspension Collapsed?

I can't see pics on my phone, but Eibachs are not OEM. On the other hand, I have a set of OEM springs and can run your VIN through the dealer site. I'm in Chicago too, NW side

I know on the first gen srt jeep, eibach supplied springs to srt for the jeep and then came out with the eibach pro drop springs. Not sure if eibach is still a supplier to srt like they where on the gen 1's.

Eigther way, that's odd how they both collapsed like that

Re: '14 SRT, Front Suspension Collapsed?

If you bought new, the dealer has to have knowledge of this unless the SRT originated from another dealer or was a swap with another vehicle from another dealer. The dealer you purchased from must replace broken parts as they are liable for not notifying you that you were buying a "modified," new vehicle.


Chances of having two coils fail even with riding with one broken, doesn't explain matters. They may have been installed incorrectly without the bump stops, etc, etc, etc. OR, you did catch a little air somewhere that you forgot about It could be that fabulous Chinese steel too. Im in Chiraq a couple times a year and the roads suck just about anywhere in the majority of the state.

Re: '14 SRT, Front Suspension Collapsed?

What was the mileage on the SRT when you bought it? The dealer must have put them on. My dealership tends to do things like this to make the cars more attractive. For instance, they get new wranglers in and put shit lift kits on and 35" tires on 20" wheels.

Either way you should not have to pay for new springs.

Re: '14 SRT, Front Suspension Collapsed?

Wow. Subscribed for updates. This is the most interesting car related story I've read in a long time. Dealership for sure will deny putting them on. Then both of them failing at the same time. 2 incredibly odd stories.

Did you have a really awesome girlfriend at one time (who put Eibachs on without telling you) that then later went crazy and cut your springs trying to kill you?
