Has anyone done their own install of springs on the charger? I've done it on other cars in the past.. Just wondering if you ran into anything crazy!

Look over on lxforums.com under suspension,etc.....Long Island RT posted "my first major mod"....there he illustrates installing the 1" mopar lowering springs doing it himself. Remember going with mopar will allow you to secure any future warranty issues with your suspension, if that concerns you. An individual I know who works for dodge service dept says swaping springs is a snap at the shop. Sometimes it's worth having them do so if it comes out squeaky there is someone else to responsible to fix it, Hmm? :whistle:

no squeaks brad :no: it was the muffler all along...after i lifted the car up - retightened everything extra hard using some of your ideas and then put on some ultra high heat sound damper (have the website if someone needs it) around any potential rubs/rattle spots! no probs after that - until i did find it though i was really worried that it was the shocks squeaking.

i attached some pics - have plenty more...this was about a week ago

hey Godaddy...whasssup!!!! Hope Your Back Is Better And Safe & Speedy Recovery.. Man I Gotta Say You Helped Me Out Alot.. Overall The Job To Lower Was Not As Bad As I Would Have Thought... The Stance Looks Bad Azz.. The Ride... Well What's Not To Like... Tight And Very Responsive.. Like You, I Will Wait For Some Dampers... But I Gotta Say It Rides Like It's On Rails Now... No Bodyroll, Nothing.. Couldn't Have Asked For Any Better.. Thanks For Your Help And Persuasiveness On The Lowering.. I Don't Think I Would Have Been Happier Any Other Way... Thanks Again For Your Help.. This Definitely Was The Way To Go...

Alright. Before I sink the money, what is the final verdict? If I go with the Sportline am I going to have to get new coilovers and/or dampers? Is the Proline the happy medium for someone wanting a more aggressive stance with better handling...or will I have to also save up for coilovers also? I spend a couple of hours absorbing what ya'll are saying every night. I was leaning toward the proline after reading some of GoDaddy's posts...but now it seems as though the sportlines might be the way to go??!!! Edumacate me please.
