Mopar spring will net you around 3/4 of an inch so if you’re looking for the slammed look they won’t do it.

Just bought the Eibach Pro for my WBHC, will post pics when finished. Hopefully it works as I am running 315 tires all the way around

Please send pics, would love to see. I like those springs, although I want to lower front and back the same so it keeps its original “stance”. I prefer to have the front slightly lower so I may see if I can get 1.1” all around.

Couple questions for those with lowered cars.
  • I've heard that lowering a HC (especially more than the Mopar springs) leads to rear half shaft and seal issues. That office water bottle rumors or have you all seen/heard the same.
  • Does lowering the car negatively effect the programing of the adjustable suspension settings? I know that's electronic but I also realize that when you lower a vehicle the shock is no longer in the parameter that it was designed for which can sometimes negatively effect it's performance and life expectancy.

Asking for two questions. I'm interested in a used HC that has been lower but more importantly, when I get a HC I'm interested in lowering as well as I prefer the lower, but not slammed, look too.

Eibachs here on my last WB Scat pack and current WB HC. Doesn't effect dynamic suspension at all, both cars felt identical. I have combined 20,000km on both those cars lowered with no rear end issues, and I beat the absolute shit out of them lol. IMO mopar springs don't drop the rear enough and look odd, so I went eibach.

I have been contemplating throwing the lowering springs on my car for better half of the year. I held off due to fear of camber/it being too low. I compiled some pictures I've seen of users on here, here's my fav's;

No issues with rubbing in the rear for anybody?
Nope, with a 315 you will need to manipulate the front of the rear fenderwells and smooth the liners.
With 305s it is all good.
You are widebody, so 315 should be fine with zero issues.
