Re: '14 SRT, Front Suspension Collapsed?

Yeah, no... -2.4 was the best they could get the rears to, and Eibach doesn't open until 10am Central.

Literally, both cams are as far out as they'll go.

Vehicle is accident-free.

I'm sure there are parts (cams?) to resolve this...

Suffices to say, since they managed to get them replaced under warranty, they didn't state specifically that the links were aftermarket... But they, in fact, WERE.

Re: '14 SRT, Front Suspension Collapsed?

Oh, and meanwhile, Eibach is being a PITA about supporting their "million mile warranty", so in any case, I'm stuck paying for new springs.

Footnote: Eibach springs are clearly tripe.
