    Have a question here. Looking for a little insight. My brother in law recently bought a 09 SRT that is lowered about 1.5 inches. His complaint that I'm going to be looking into, is when you launch the car, the rear end is very "snakey, or " wishy washy". It's not that the rear tires are spinning, its hooking very well. I personally have not got the car up on a lift yet, but it does have all poly eurathane bushings, and he says appear to all be very tight n no slop. When I went for drive in it, definitely gets snakey on hard pull through 1st n 2nd gear. I noticed the rear camber looks very negative, and possibly the cause? Thoughts? Hellcat is my first modern challenger, so just looking for some past experiences anyone might have some good input. I will check alignment and see just how bad it is, but when the car is hooking n driving behind him, the camber looks terrible! Car is cammed n supercharged so it plants pretty well. Thanks!

    Check the torque on the rear toe link outer bolts

    There was a STAR case about that years ago and if it's loose it will make the rear end do so funky stuff back there.

    Thanks for the tip, I'll will check torque on that as well.
