    All right so......I have a 2017 Daytona with the 5.7 hemi. For some reason Dodge thought "why don't we make two versions of the same car but make one sit higher than the other"

    I'm thinking of using Mopar stage 1 lowering springs 5155436 to achieve roughly the ride height of the 392.

    Here is how the car sits now

    Are ya willing to "spring" for the extra cash to go with coilovers, Butch?

    I have really enjoyed the KW's on my LX.

    How much of a drop do they say you'll get with those Mopar springs? 1" ?
