Since I get a lot of phone calls and emails for picture figured it would be good to have all the pictures in one spot where I can direct customers.

If you have some springs and you got them from us please post up your ride and tell what drop you have Mid,Extreme or the 1.8 and 1.8.

Also feel free to give a review. I have only heard how happy people are with them and when purchasing I hate to give people just my opinion as I feel they need to hear it from a paying customer that they can read for themselves and not feel like my opinion is bias I fee it will help them make a better decision.


If anyone is concerned with the Extreme drop or the mid drops Camber or Toe here are the arms that will be for sale soon with some info on em.

The arms are precision machined from 6061 billet aluminum and the tabs are laser-cut from steel plate for an exact fit. By changing out the tabs with different offsets, you can tune the alignment of your vehicle to suit your needs whether you're trying to increase or reduce camber. The arms are designed to occupy the same space the OEM arms do to ensure they do not interfere with any aftermarket shocks/coilovers, etc. These also feature 90 durometer Polyurethane bushings that ensure long, slop-free life from the parts even under the most punishing conditions. They wil fit all Jeeps 2011-2014 with camber or toe issues when lowering of a vehicle to bring it back into factory specifications.




I will also start with the pictures :)

The Extreme Drop.

I have the Road Magnet mid drop springs that i purchased from Black Ops, put on 4000 miles on my truck and i have had zero issues. Running oem stock 20'' rims & tires with these springs has given this truck 2 things that were needed, better handling ( tighter feel) and a much better cosmetic appearance, this is how the truck shoulda came from the factory. I"m very happy with this minor modification the ride quality hasn't suffered, was inexpensive and fairly easy to do. Well worth the purchase and Black Ops was even cheaper than Road Magnet themselves. IMO this is an essential modification for all 2012+ SRT owners.

1.8" drop front and rear. Rides as good as stock. Eibachs are actually stiffer, road magnets seem to have the same feel as the stock ones you just get less body roll. Definitely as low as you can go in the rear with out the black ops arms. I may still get the arms just to correct my camber more.

Mid level drop, 0 rubbing or issues of any kind even with my thicker profile tires (I'm running 285 40 22 Nitto's) ride quality is the same, I love this drop

I am getting my SRT in Jan and definitely want to go with the mid level and 22" replica's in gloss black. I am in Sydney so I do not need snow tires or run flats so was thinking of going 305/35/22 for the rear and 285/35/22 on the front. Two questions

1) is there an issue with the camber when using the mid range and if so how does it effect the car

2) should I be running 305/40/22 instead.

Thanks.

Assuming its a 2012+ you will want to run the same size tire all the way around. That staggered size will mess up the t case. 305/35/22 will fit at all 4 corners.

^ is correct the 305's fit on all 4 corners and with the Mids you should be able to pull the Camber and toe back into OEM specs.
It's really the Toe that messes stuff up Camber wears tires on the insides faster than normal but the truck will track better with a bit.
The New Vipers are sold with a bit of Camber from what the driveline engineer told me from SRT. With that said I don't see anything wrong with a bit of Camber it's really the toe you don't want any of. Just be prepared to buy tires a year earlier with the mids if you do deside to leave some Camber and two years earlier with the Extremes.

Thanks guys, I know this is probably the wrong thread but just quickly why is a staggered option a problem? I was thinking a 305 is a large tire for the front so therefore a 285 for the front and 305 for the back would work well. Also for reference this is my first 4WD/SUV/Truck.

It's not a problem as long as the overall diameter of the tires is the same but using a 285/35 and a 305/35 will have different overall diameters and this will cause the transfer case to not be happy.

Correct me if I am wrong but the only difference with the 305/35/22 and 285/35/22 is the width isn't it. Isn't the diameter exactly the same and therefore no problems, they are both 35/22 wheels?

The diameter of a 285/35 is 7mm less than a 305/35. 22 is the only constant. D"=22+((285*0.35)/25.4)
