Hi There,

I recently purchased a 2004 SRT-4 knowing that I need to change out the struts. It already comes with Megan lowering springs so my options are to either replace the struts and put the springs back on or go to a coilover setup like I did with my 2001 R/T. I would prefer to go to with coilovers but am not sure which ones to go with. for my 04 SRT-4 my goal is to be able to lower the car with a close to stock spring rate and performance. I have had BC coilovers in my 01 R/T that were 336 lbs spring rate in the front and 224lbs spring rate in the back and found them a bit too rough. That's why I'm looking for more of a softer coilover. Any Suggestions?

Thanks, Todd

Modern Performance sells BC coilovers with softer springs from Eibach. AMR makes a good set of coilovers, but they're about $1600 per set. You could also go with Koni inserts for your stock struts and reinstall the aftermarket springs with them.

Thanks for the reply Jeremy, I sent AMR a note.

I'm not sure about the BC coil overs as I has them before in my 01 R/T (from MP) and found them to be a bit rough. I looked into using the softer Eibach springs but doesn't the valving need to mach the spring rate? Any other options out there? I have read many topics on coil overs but most of them are of a performance nature. I'm still looking for somewhat of a stock feeling ride.

Thanks, Todd

I just installed some BC's in my 2002 R/T and I agree that they're pretty rough. As for the Eibach springs, I'm sure they work just fine with the coilovers. I don't think Modern would advertise and sell the setups as much if they didn't work right.
