I installed Eibach coilovers yesterday on a 2009 SRT Challenger. They ride is awesome & the handling is much improved but now I want to lower the car & I can't for the life of me figure it out.
I adjusted the spring mount all the way down but all that did was unload the spring without lowering the car one centimeter. WTF? I'm assuming that I must now have to adjust the shock but I don't see how or where to adjust it.
They Eibach coilover is adjustable. All you do is bring the spring mount down and it will sit lower. once down you will have to letthe spring and shock adjust and settle
Ah, I just looked at Eibach's website and saw they do have adjustable ones. I was just familiar with the non adjustable coilovers, springs and shocks that they offer. Hmmmm, learn something everyday.
I have the eibach coilovers and it is kinda of a pian to do the rear. There is a key that came with the coilovers. I put my car on a rack and turned the release collar counter clock wise. This will lower the car. I used a caliper to make my adjustments. You and also count the thread on the coilover and play it by sight. The front is way easyer.

Thanks for the replies. I talked to the manufacturer today & I think that I now know what the problem is. They said that you need to loosen the inner pivot bolt. That makes sense & I'll try it this weekend. I have the car put away for the week since I need to carry a ladder.
I'll post something if I figure it out because I've looked all over the forum & the internet & I can't find any tips on how to adjust these.
By the way, that Magnum that MAGFX has is cool as sh*t.
