Challenger SRT Hellcat
My 2009 m6 426 with stock running gear is a squatter.. Also have a 2016 a8 hellcat getting tuned at true street and thinking of doing springs on that..
I ordered the Carlyle springs but waiting on their arrival since they were on back order until 23 October. I’m really hoping the info I’ve read is true and my Challenger HC won’t sit like a 4x4. I hear the springs work better than stock. I’ve also heard the springs from HHP work well also. However, my car is a street car, not a 1/4mi track-only car.So was there ever a verdict on putting OEM demon springs on a Hellcat Challenger? So what happens with the ride height? I’ve read a few threads but nothing consistent across the board. I see some people talking about adjustable control arms. You have to do that too?
Post some pics man.Today I installed Demon Killer Springs, BMR track bars, and cut the rear snubber down by 1”.
Took me 4 hours total front / back, BMR track bars 15 min each and 15 min each on the snubber.
The front is 1/2-3/4” taller, and the rear is 1/2”. Looks good now and will look awesome with the drag wheel set up.
Will be testing when we get some warmer weather.
ive installed the HHP springs and can tell the difference in weight transfer by feel and video. I haven’t changed my technique and my 60’ time are almost identical.I have been looking for months and months, for one person to say these springs cut down their 60'. I have yet to ever see someone say oh these springs cut my time down by .xx, the problem is almost no one just adds these springs. They change multiple other things at the same time, or the DA is too different from the last track day, or more honestly there is no advantage compared to their average 60'.
If someone comes forward and while changing only the springs, makes a consistent improvement I would be more interested, but i have yet to see it. I have looked over forums, facebook groups, local groups etc.
Top? I just ordered a set of the demon killer springs as well getting put on in a week or so when it goes in for all the other work but I’m am not looking forward to the car sitting higher ? but for better hook I guess I’m gonna go through with it lol
I've seen for the ride height. I bought the car lowered, I know it looks good but I cringe every time I scrape my exhaust or front lip.Had these installed today. Took about 2.5 hours. Mind you, the blizzaks are almost 29" tall, so the gap will be a little more with my street tire setup and even more with a drag setup in the rear. These are a "close" spring Speed Test Scrabble Word Finder Solitaire rate to the Dodge Demon springs designed to be an improvement over what the cars come with. The charger has a softer spring rate than the challenger, so my improvements might not be as dramatic. They are supposed to help the 60' and improve weight transfer. Time will tell when the weather gets better and I can get a good whack out of the hole. It seems the actual OEM Demon springs make the car sit significantly higher in the rear. I'm ok with how this version turned out. I'll post more pictures when I get the car on its "normal" tires.
These were $299
Labor was $350
