    I had spoken to Eibach about options for the Hellcat, they told me they had been getting calls and emails asking the same question but to date had yet to be able to get their hands on one.

    Well I call that a win win situation! I now give you the first Eibach equipted Hellcat.

    New springs all around. The standard Challenger Pro-Series in the front about a 1" drop. And one of a kind prototype springs for the rear, dropped about 1 1/4". Ride is stiffer but still nice. Front feels solid, but the biggest change was the rear, it really feels planted. Will need some more seat time to really get a good feel for the changes but pretty impressed thus far.

    As for the sway bars, Eibach was pretty imperssed with how aggressive the factory units were so those stayed in place.

    Sounds like an off the shelf kit is in the works and may be available in a few months.

    Just thought some would be interested in this information as I am sure the kits will be considerably less than the KW coilovers when they come out.

    Will keep you all updated as I get more seat time in.

    I will say I do not work for Eibach but as the test mule the parts and install were gratis.

    Very nice! do you know if they will be making any drag springs that help transfer weight to the rear tires like they did back in the day for Camaro and Mustangs?

    Time for an update. Eibach ran a test batch (20 sets) of production springs based of the prototypes they made for mine, I took my car back in two weeks ago so they could confirm fittment. Well they work and now I have a production set.

    These perform as good if not better than the prototype set and I am liking the set up more and more. Truly a great mod in my opinion.

    I dont think the kits are on the site yes but should be available for purchase through the Corona CA location.

    Looks great! I am hoping that when I order mine I will get a little bit of that "old school" rake look. Eibach has the Pro-Springs on their site as of today.

    Glad to see another option.
    I got my springs back in March of 2015 from Speedlogix.
    These lowering springs are needed badly.

    looks great... i used the KW Variant HAS and worked out well for me. Street ride improved and noticeable change while driving "harder"... feels more planted... i also got front and rear strut tower braces so the car's steering with all these mods feels very responsive.
