I've often wondered about that since I got my SRT... As far as an awesome, reliable, and powerful SUV goes... You're at the top of the food chain so to speak. I think if I were to ever trade the SRT for another SUV, I would ultimately be moving backwards by trading down. Thankfully there's a cure for that fear since next year the Hellhawk will be released. I can't wait to see how badass it will be!

Installed bwoody progressive springs

Supposed to be 1.2"F and 1.8"R

This is also with a small urethane spacer on the rear

Way too low, looks fantastic, but way too low and I'll be taking them out and getting some local Aussie made springs for it now, just a shame they weren't even close to advertised spec, sorry but would not buy again...

Re: What did you do to your WK2 SRT today?

Wow....👀😮
I think the RM mids are the only other possible choice for me. But I'm content with eibach height for now.
Sad to see another bwoody fail.

Re: What did you do to your WK2 SRT today?

Yeah it's a little bit lower now

And much much lower than the specs advise

Alignment is good, and if I modified the shocks a little and chopped down the bump stops some more, it'd probably ride ok

But I'm not after that kind of drop, if they were 15-20mm higher in the front and 25-30mm higher in the rear I'd be happy, and they'd be close to what is advertised

It's almost as if they rebrand the road magnets and sent me the extremes...

Re: What did you do to your WK2 SRT today?

Took it back to the dealer so they could clean up after my first fn oil change. God damn





Driving a $64k car that smells like an oil burning clunker. WTF

Now why din't you just get the Mids did RM or someone (US) Piss you off ? Just asking because I thinght it was well advertised that RM was the Spring to get?

I've said it before all smoke and mirrors coming out of that camp and a lot of talk. Scott and myself made a post about it here someplace where someone was trying to push his springs making false claims about RM and we explained he basically copied RM and has some BS sales pitch of increasing tow capacity and we explained that's just a pitch since they where dropped by RM from Shady sales techniques and lack of customer support among other things they did. The majority made RM #1 not us and people have no issues not sure their is even another spring needed in the market except one and WE are working on that spring now! They should be released next spring!

Sorry to see you fell for all the progressive Hoopla!!

Re: What did you do to your WK2 SRT today?

Eibach has also pulled theirs off for now and currently have a 2015 SRT in to spec out a new set.

I'm looking forward to seeing all this. It better be ready for March 1st. That's when we all start buying toys.
