    I've noticed that on the freeway around 75 and above the front end/steering seems very light. If going around a corner and hit a bump or broken pavement the front end seems to skip or move around it feels unsteady. Anyone else have this it's a charger hellcat. Thanks

    Are you running the suspension in street or track. Street works fine for me

    I've had the tires rotated and balanced the wheel shakes a little at 77 and above

    I felt that, in a curve hit a normal bump and it hops in front like too much air pressure. I was in street mode

    Probably the stiffness of the suspension, or harsh roll rates. I would hate to think approved tire pressures would be too high....(TPMS lights all green ?)

    I never lowered them all 32 and yes I checked the TPM afterwards. I'm a tech so basics all okay never chased it, need to drive a SRT over the same to see if normal.

    My air is 33lbsnitrogen I'm in Michigan so roads suck. Yeah all tps are green. It just feels like too much play. I guess I'll take it in to dealer. What could cause this ?Loose feeling in the front

    Well I have not driven the Charger. My TPMS shows 34 all around and I guess I should lower to 32 but have not done so yet. The car feels incredibly well planted but the steering has very little feel to it. The mechanical grip is huge from the summer tyres. I'm not use to such mechanical grip as most of my stuff is old school that moves around and I'm okay with that. But from what you say you seem to have a problem with the dampers. Get them checked out

    Could be loose tie rod end or ball joint. I would have it checked out.
