    I'm want to lower my Hellcat but do not want to use coilovers because its a pain to raise and lower the car. I'm looking into airbags for the simple fact that you can raise the car to avoid bottoming out and scraping. I have a few question that i hope you guys can answer.

    1-Will it void my warranty ?
    2-Can my stock set up be put back on if i were to sell the car?
    3-Whats is the best set up to go with and a ballpark price?

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    My friend has airbags on his. Looks cool, ride quality suffers a little... Yes, you can replace the stock system. It is a more expensive route to go... For a good complete system and install you are looking around $5-6k. As far as warranty. It will only void the suspension part of your warranty. For example... if your engine breaks, or starts leaking oil, you are fine; your radio breaks, you are fine; your control arm goes, not covered; your axle breaks, probably not... It depends on what your dealer is willing to do.

    I have to ask, but don't take it as an insult or anything...

    One of the reasons the Hellcat is so great (and part of the price) is the adaptive suspension. Why would you want to lose that handling and adaptability? Even if we had a regular SRT suspension, the air ride will be even less comfortable, and you won't get near the performance capability.

    Bandit.....I'm with you on this but I bet that it's all about appearance. I can somewhat understand that but I wouldn't sacrifice performance and/or comfort for appearance. That said, I do love the looks of these cars when the wheel wells are "eating" the top of the tires. I just wouldn't be willing to make the trade off for it.

    Handling is ok at best now, you really want to spend thousands to make it even worse? Thats the beginning stages of turning a car into a jalopy. Sorry just my opinion. You may disagree lol.

    Mine is lowered with KW lowering kit, for $ 600.00. This is permanent ride height. I thinks it's low enough even sitting still. No need to adjust

    I did exactly the same. Love the way it sits, and is adjustable too.

    This is Ridetech, 4 way adjustable. The only way to go on the old cars. But, it's around $ 4500.00, parts and labor. No way I'd do on a Hellcat.

    Thanks everyone i appreciate your input. Like the one guy said it's more about looks then the handling. As long as it's good with straight line performance that fine with me. The car will never be on a road corse only a drag strip once in a while. Plus i heard the air ride set ups these days handle pretty good?

    I agree with Sepipr21....$600.00 seems to be a good deal for that system. I normally see it for $749.00 to $799.00.
