    i achieved an incredible 2.25" front, 1.5" rear drop with these cheap M2 racing springs on amazon for the exponential price of $100. (i know right?) while they're definitely NOT performance springs, they are still stiffer than stock. i need to replace the rear Nivomat shocks so that i can level off.

    also, these springs were actually for the 06-10 charger (what?!) yes. they fit. the 06-10 has a lower spring rate than the 11+. because of that, the car sits lower than i actually should, had i opted for springs made for my year.

    after having them for about a year and a half, i can definitely tell you they were worth it for daily driving street use.

    I just installed these spring today...didnt get near that low lol (sucks bc i wanted to). maybe they have to settle for a while. Did you remove the bump stops in the front and the isolaters in the rear? (i didnt,i did cut the bum s tops tho)

    May need to settle. When I installed mine, I also had a lower profile tire at first. That got me REALLY low. About 3.25" front. When I put the correct size on, that's when I remeasured and saw the 2.25". But that was a year later.

    I just found mine. I was originally with the smaller tires sitting at 26.5" front and 27.25" rear. The stock tires added an inch to those.
