Bought an SRT-4 a few weeks ago. It's got some mods (painted engine bay parts and brakes, PT shifter, aftermarket wastegate, sneeze plate, 3" exhaust, lowering springs) but nothing too crazy. It's something nice for me to drive to and from work.

Unfortunately the front struts gave up the ghost. I don't want to put coils on it since I have such a long drive to work, so I decided to replace the struts. I didn't want to use neon struts because it would lower the car, SRT-4 struts are $99 each on rock auto, so I ended up using PT cruiser front struts, that were $122 shipped for the pair after a 5% discount.

First time I've ever swapped struts, it's a pain with my electric impact having a dying battery so I had to keep recharging it.

Pics in no particular order.

Nice, that looks pretty clean.

Full of kids, apparently.

R/T bumper FTW. Looks like it has some foggy aftermarket tails on it, though. Might just be the angle. I don't think anyone makes an aftermarket tail light that I like, but that's just me. Looks like a clean DD.

Lol the interior is slightly beat but comfortable. Perfect for something that me and my kids will beat up for a few years.

The tails are temporary. It's in the works for me to have a custom rear bumper made.

^lol i think that is the stage that this site has hit... i think the only tails that look good really are the mopar 3D tails..

What kind of custom bumper you doing? aftermarket or full custom one-off?

It'll be a custom bumper. 02 euro tails on an SRT bumper.

Nice, ready to see this car evolve. What brand of struts you go with? I went with Unity on my 1st gen from RockAuto, they were crappy as all get out. 1 blew in 30 days.

I went with Monroe struts. I might have to replace the tears sooner or later. I'll end up making a small spacer for the rear springs on it.
