As a previous WK1 SRT8 owner I'll admit I didn't have a lot of love for the WK2 SRT when it came out and it has nothing to do with jealousy. When I first saw the SRT8 in 2005 I called the dealer and...

Re: 2011 limited good price?

Re: Thinking about trading for an 06 SRT... Need Advice

Re: QL Question

Mine would self adjust when first started, I think it's pretty normal for air suspension to do that.
