    Car could use a good 1"-2" lowering, wasn't sure if anyone knows if there is any room to lower on stock bolts?

    Whew! If I did that I would tear the shizzy out of the front dam. Our roads aren't that great here. I bet you could do it, it seems like there is enough clearance, but I will defer to the experts...o_O

    One of the members of the Mopar group I started hang out with says you can lower it a little more. He has a '69 Cuda and really seems to know his business.

    Just wonder how changing springs will effect the active suspension.

    I think the car looks great as is but dropping it 1 1/2 inches would be sick. I'm looking into the eibach kit. I've used eibach springs before and they work very well. There not over priced either. I will post details when I get them.

    I thought about trying to get a hold of ridetech and see what my opinions are! They are a based out of my town.

    Low looks good going slow, at 150 + down force will compress suspension 1"

    Has Eibach developed a kit for the 2016 Challenger's yet?? I heard they were working on it. Everyone should lower there cars, they ride and handle so much better just by dropping it an inch. We have to remember that when they are designed, the engineers have to take everything into consideration, so unless you plan on driving your Hellcat over some really rugged terrain, than drop that baby, you'll be glad you did!

    It won't effect the shock settings. All it does is lower than Fender gap... A few years back, SRT engineers even admitted that they would have preferred to have produced the Challengers with a lower ride height, and the 2015's are definitely lower than the 2009 and up models, just not enough, but passing factory standards for over all geometry.

    Thanks for the heads up on compression from downforce. Unfortunately I dont see myself ever doing 150 very often. I have had the car at 130 before having to shut it down due to traffic. Maybe only drop it an inch so there is room to go fast.
