How low are you dropping it? Those look like 16's, yes?
At first,gonna go as low as possible with out rubbing jus to see how it looks,rides. Will eventually find a height I'm happy with that doesn't rip bumpers,oil pans or what have you. And yes,16's with 205/50's

Not that I'm aware of. I was talking to a guy on FB who installed a set on his srt that mentioned he was gonna remove the rear ones to see how it rode,looked,etc. I still haven't seen any pics though. I'm to chicken to try it first lol.

Just keep in mind they are only ride height adjustable. This is with the helper spring installed @ lowest setting. Another member on here took the helper spring out in the rear.

Im not really worried about that. I put eibach sportlines on stock struts so bumps are not an issue for me. I did see the spring rates of these. Im trying to find the spring rates for the eibachs though to compare stiffness.

Sent PayPal payment today for a Thermal R&D rear section. Soooo excited!! Got new tires installed today, 205/50/16 Achilles 2233. Thought that was the tire size I had already, turns out the original size was 225/45/16. With the new tires I haven't had an issue yet with rubbing without the spacers on front. Gonna put a few more miles on it then jack it up n check.

I found it on facebook, the srt for sale page. Guy is on here. I bumped his thread a few days ago. I was soooooo excited!! I've been wanting one forever. Hybrid_srt2001 had one on his old silver 01' ACR and I loved the sound,quite when not on it,nice tone when u get on it,no drone.

Im sure it'll look sic. I love how my lip looks. Your cutting the tip holes out. Are you gonna paint the middle blk or fold it up like the srt guys? I folded but didnt like my $60 dual t-pipe showing so I let it back dwn and painted it blk.

Not sure yet. I'll be getting 2 rear lips so I may play around with both styles n see what I like best. Just tracked the Thermal, it'll be here next tuesday :twisted:

It'll still be awhile til I get the rear lips,roof rack as my buddy has been busy with life. When he gets some free time is when I'll get it :-D

Took the tails out to silicone the gaskets as they were leaking water into the trunk

Finally got the specs of the Rota's when I had the tires changed.
