    I’ve got my KW H.A.S springs being delivered tomorrow! Can’t wait to close that (SUV) air gap in the rears. A lot of good responses about them on Hellcat.org.... even a few good install write ups! They’re adjustable, not the one & done springs like HR or Eibach. Could be a pain if ride is compromised or w/aftermarket wheels which I have now. That reason alone is enough for me to spend extra $$$ on this setup....
    I’ll post up when I get them installed. Seems easy. I got a coworker helping me. Just waiting on a nice Saturday to do it. Should be around 4-6 hours installation time (without the brewskis). I’m also planning on a pic detailed post on steps to take!

    There’s a guy on YouTube. His handle is ‘Garage Driven’ & he goes into detail on install. Very informative. Check it out if you plan on installing any springs you decide to use

    Take your time. Coil spring compressor for orielly will help. Did the job but not lowering, 1320 springs. On Scat Charger and challenger. The upper ball joint is a trick. Got to hold the ball joint with Allen and loosen the nut. Biggest issue. Think about SPC on camber fix. There website has good vids on doing that. But need to see alignment after job done.

    I am also interested in more information on this. I have a 2020 Charger SP widebody that I would like to lower just a bit. I would actually be happy if I could just get it to sit level. I don't mind the front ride height and would be willing to leave that as is. I did send an email to BMR and inquired about their SP112 rear lowering springs, which they sell separately. I'm assuming for this very purpose. According to their website, it drops the rear 1.25", which seems like it would be too much when I measured mine, so I'll see what they say. I have read some posts of people doing this on their Challengers and getting good results, but anyone have any input on their Chargers? I don't really want to go full coil overs or anything that $$ if I don't have to. I'm also not interested in trying to cut the rear springs, which I've seen some guys do. If I have to replace the front springs to accomplish this, I will. Any input appreciated

    Not a fan of lowering springs...,should go to coil-overs.
    You cannot adjust lowering springs. With coil-overs, YOU can pick ride height YOU like, plus adjustment of "feel" of the road.
    YOU will be WAY happier.

    A LOT of members used lower springs as their first step, before going to coil overs for more control over ride height and ride itself.
