Eibach Sportlines 2.4" Drop + Tokico HP Blues

Does anyone know if the Eibach Sportline springs put too much strain/stress on the Tokico HP Blues? The lowest I've ever dropped a vehicle was 2" and the Tokico HP Blues lasted years.. but it appears that 2.4" drop may put so much strain/stress on these struts that they'd blow out in a lesser time f...

Wait.. so when you use aftermarket struts and springs.. the neons have a clunking sound? Is this due to loose struts or oversized strut mounts? I've never heard of clunking on the struts other than when the nut(s) become loose thus you have loose struts, which clunk on turns/curves/braking/speeding...

Huge bump with semi-OT question! I want to go with 15" wheels.. wide as possible without rubbing (I'm assuming 8w is max) but also with an offset that is as close to the centerline of the wheels as possible (48mm?). With the 15" wheels I don't plan to go low profile tires. I would prefer some meat o...

just about any hu on the market right now advertises 50x4, but they are typically all 4x20rms or less. alpine makes an add-on called the power pack or something like that that bumps it up to 4x45rms, but other than that you need an amp to get 4x50rms or more.

Grab a Pioneer head unit with 50x4 watts and Alpine 6x9's for the rear & 6's for the doors and odds are close to 1 that you'll be happy. (I'd still prefer Polk speakers. ;) ) pioneer doesn't make such an animal anymore. at best you may get 4x22rms. I simply meant something like the DEH-X8500BH. It'...

Being that my stock wheels are 14" I'd probably just go with 15" with a lot of meat on the tires. But apparently the next best upgrade for wheels would be 16" not 15"

I'm going to say no. And I doubt they come with new plastic nuts either. Don't lose those nuts, Mopar does not sell them separately.

Well height may be an issue as far as that part goes. You may have two lumps in the deck carpet. Or have to cut the carpet and use grills. But the factory holes are for 6 x 9 speakers. For rounds/component, you obviously need an adapter plate for the better mounting solution. Ah ok.. then that's th...

Nice. I thought maybe it was because of the built in tweeters (for lack of a better term) on the 6x9 Type S that it stood too tall.
