Its the new Road Magnet springs (PC in Hemi Orange of course). These are the same as the BWoodys that have been out for awile but just a little taller in the back (still not as tall as the Eibachs) and a heavier spring rate. They are soppost to not bottom out, at all.....

I'm going to try and install tomorrow, (Tue) and I'll take lots of pics too, if anyone is interested.....:thumbsup:

So the install was pretty straight forward and simple. It took about two and a half hours for the whole thing including the alignment.

Installation of the front springs is definitely harder than the rear springs, but they are still not that bad.

I like the way she sits now much better.
The drop is only an inch, but at first it didn't really look like there was a drop at all.
After some driving they seem to settle, and the pics I will try and take tomorrow, will show you a difference from the few pics I've taken tonight

As for the ride? I think based on the small amount of driving I was able to get in tonight, I like the ride much better. The rig just seems to roll better, small bumps that would usually get the ass end squirrelly while negotiating a small turn, don't anymore.
Through the turns she seems to stay much more planted than the stock set up.
On the highway, I did not have the usual "bump steer" and best of all, no bottoming out.

Like I said though, I didn't get a long ride in tonight I will in the next couple of days though, and I will report anything different...
