Hello everyone! I am interested in lowing my 2014 R/T (rwd) charger. I recently purchased some new wheels and tires for my ride. They are Viper reps (20x9) and Nitto Motivos (275/40/20). Theres a pretty big gap that I am trying to get rid of. I was hoping to drop at least 1.5 inches. I have come across some Eibach pro-kit lowering springs. Would I be needing any caster/camber plates for the alignment afterwards?

Thanks everyone for the help. Here is how the car sits now.

Eibach all the way. The ride is very nice and thee new control is great. I did need to use adjustable upper balljoints to make the alignment work. I also purchased the rear offset bushings to correct the alignment, but did not need them. Some people can get away without them and others will need them. The front adjustable balljoints are required along with the new upper control arms

What separates the people that need them and the people that don't? How low was the drop? I would love to see a pic! Thank you for the quick reply. Ill be looking into the balljoints then

Lowering and the choice of springs, struts, and shocks has been the subject of many, many threads on this forum.

You'll find lots of good information by simply doing a search on "Eibach springs." You'll probably find more than a few photos, too. Then search on "Mopar Stage 1" and "Hotchkis" so you can draw meaningful comparisons to other popular spring kits.

There is a guy in the forum who used challenger or srt springs and it lowered it about that much
SRT8 takeoff springs crop up in the classifieds from time-to-time.

I've got Challenger SRT springs, shocks, struts from a 2010 and it only lowered me about 3/4 of an inch. The SRTs aren't really much lower the fascia makes it seem even more.

I love the ride and handling but it won't drop you the 1.5 inches... but at least I don't need adjustable uppers etc.

I just got the eibach sport-system kit installed two weeks ago. I needed a chamber kit for the rear. The drop is supposed to be 1.8 from and 1.7 rear. The ride is very good but a little more abrupt or firm, this kit comes with struts btw.

This drop would look amazing with those wheels.

So just in addition to the kit all I would need is a chamber kit for the rear. Thank you!

In addition to the camber kit, if you have Nivomat shocks in the rear you will need to replace them.
