following this one as I ran into the same discrepancies as Moparmut. I also have read some say magnet flip, others say injectors or coil wires need to be swapped and others say straight plug and play. I am also hoping for the best case scenario but would love for us to get a sticky post up confirmin...

to be completely honest...not much. Its a little firmer but just barely. They were like 17 bucks shipped so worth it as the old boogers were a "little" worn. These will never wear down. SOOO.....if you don't already have boogers or you do and they are worn it is worth it. If you have relatively new ...

Just an update, thanks again Thomas, got some free time last night to get the brakes tweaked and voila! I have a parking brake again! lol. Also adjusted in the new headlights, and jumped under the car to tweak the exhaust, which keeps rattling itself loose. Next project found!

OK good deal that is what I thought. Like I said, I have BCs right now and have been driving on them for a year now so I am use to a pretty rough ride. I need something a little softer and smoother and have read the racelands are both of those things when compared to BCs. I still want a little rigid...

Hell yes!! I was actually thinking about doing exactly that. It was a tight fit getting the drum back on so I left some slack in the adjusters. Was thinking about getting in there with a screw driver and turning the star bolt down to see if it would help and I think that just might do it. Also, I po...

Man that looks super sharp! How rough is rough though? I am considering racelands myself and everyone has said they ride really smooth for coil-overs. I have BCs right now and they are ROUGH. I have a kid on the way and need something smoother hence why I was considering them but hearing they ride r...

No problem man great work so far :thumbup:
I plan to run SRT skirts and rear bumper as well. I think I am gonna swap out the 03-05 front bumper and hood for a 2002 style bumper and 00-02 hood, then just throw a HD lip on the 02 bumper.

I might look for a Lorenzo TB when I purchase a SYKED ECU

Nice man! Just got around to catching up on your car. Love the SRT skirts and the chrome rings on the cluster. What year and model chryslers did they come out of?

I got the starter cables replaced on the 1gn today - I'll have to get around to updating my PL... Ok, that is what I thought. I just put a few copper washers on...
