DodgeDude99, Shawn, came by early one Sunday morning and installed some springs while I tried to help.. Smile These are the Eibach Sportline springs and claim to give a 2" inch drop over stock.

Flanman over on LX hooked me up with some rear shocks from his R/T to replace the Road and Track load levelers.

Here's the front spring comparison...

The first interesting find for the day was the mouse pee and poop under the driver's side strut cap... 🤢

Most of the installation went smoothly, aside from me renting the wrong spring compressor and both of us not reading the instructions until we were half done.. Shocked

On to the rear... I actually thought these were going to be the easier of the springs to install, but I was wrong. It went alright, once we knew exactly what we needed to do...

And now, the results!

The car sits really low.. Almost too low with the shorter tire height, but I'm happy. I've been told the car looks noticeably more aggressive.

As far as the ride quality, so far it feels solid..

Many, many thanks to Shawn for helping me out with this.. There's no way I could have tackled this on my own! cheers

Looks awesome! Much better now that it sits lower. That got rid of the whole 4x4 look. Very Happy

I might lower my car just a little, maybe an inch or so with Roush springs, but that will be after some other things are done first.

I'm betting I'll be alright if I can upgrade to some 20" rims and some more practicle tires.. I hope.. Smile
