As far as I know the 2014 should have the same suspension set up as the 2011 - 2013 models. There is a few threads around on lowering the pre 2014 models

Hi All,
I was just wondering if anyone knows if the "half" engine covers made for the Charger and Challenger 5.7 Hemi will fit on a Jeep 5.7 Hemi?
These are the ones that I am looking at.

68029590AE is the part number I used to order the new mounts.

Trat might be right, the load levelling mounts may come already attached to the shock, that's why there is no part number for them.

The front and rear shock install was A$ 375 with an alignment, I'm not sure how labor costs would compare in different countries though.

Re: Coming soon non SRT front lip?

It looks like its the standard chrome grill that's been painted and had the 'rings' masked, the 'rings' aren't indented like the SRT grill.
And it fits the non SRT.

Re: Lowering WK2

I will be lowering in late Oct/ early Nov using Eibachs and also throwing on the SRT rear sway bar. Looks like the only way to get Eibachs out here is through a re-shipper but its pricey.
