    Thanks, on my R/T it replaced springs and shocks. Figured it was the same here. They usually recommend not to just replace the springs because it puts the shocks out of their range of operation. I checked their site and it says foot note "tested with factory dampeners" though.

    Ok. Sorry, I didn't measure and care too much about it. I can certainly measure the end result for you and post that up tonight.

    Your exactly right, it will put slightly more stress on the stock shocks. On my previously owned Audis, I would put H&R cup kits, they were fantastic, better than coilovers. But after a couple of Eibach spring kits, I couldn't believe how good they were. The H&R springs alone, were slightly bouncier than the Eibach. But then again, I am comparing a total different car than our Challengers. I highly recommend these springs.

    Did they check your alignment specs and are they within limits ?

    Yes. You should always get that done when lowering any car. Corner balanced at each end. Every car I have lowered gets alignment and corner balanced.

    Ok, so I measured and from roughly the middle of the fender to about the middle of the center cap, i measured 15" at each wheel. That's good because the stock rear tires are not as tall as the Nitto 305s I have, and I have a feeling the stance would be perfectly matched Front and rear. Here are some pics I just took. Gave the car a quick wash and back into the garage for a few days until the rain passes.

    So you are saying that the 305,s are taller than the stock 275's. it seems that would be the opposite since a 275/40/20 is 28.7" dia. and the 305/35/20 is 28.4" dia. According to the specifications, anyway.

    The stock tires are taller than the 305 Nittos. The wheel well gap on mine is more noticeable with the 305 Nittos vs the stock tires which is why I'm having the Eibach Pro Kit installed next week. It's only a marginal difference in gap in the rear, but it bugs me.

    Sorry guys, my mistake. I meant to say the stock is taller, and even though the 305s are slightly shorter, the wheel gap is much more noticeable after the swap. That's what made me get the drop installed.

    SRT Mang, you're going to love the look and feel of the kit.

    That's what I'm hoping! Just praying that I don't scrape the front lip entering and exiting my parking garage at work...that will suck hearing that everyday...

    Haha, i know what you mean. I always kept my yellow protectors on, and recently had them plasti dipped, and at least they blend in with my front lip. Im keeping them on a little longer, until i get used to the drop and feel comfortable enough to take them off.

    Did you plasti dip them yourself? I actually bought a set of them from another forum member just in case I lowered the car and wanted a little extra protection. I've already had to use a dremel to even out some of the scrapes I've had to deal with driving in the city of Wilmington since the roads suck there!
