    2nd gen awd 300 springs

    So ive looked everywhere to see if i could find lowering springs for the 2nd gen awd 300s
    they make them for 1st gen awd 300s and 11-14 awd chargers. Will either of those fit? Or will rwd springs work? Thank you

    I also researched this quite a bit. The only lowering springs I found that do seem to work on the awds are the mopar springs. Some people who ran them though said they had to get adjustable control arms to get the alignment to work. I was still thinking about winging it and ordering them. I just don't want to spend a thousand dollars on coil overs which seems to the lowering method of choice by most people with 300s and chargers. If anybody else has feedback on other options or the Mopar springs please chime in.

    On eBay. Steve White motors has a listing for them, I've ordered other things from them and was happy with their service. Part is P4510854.

    It's not going to be a question of whether they "fit" or not. The awd has different spring rates than the rwd. In essence, the AWD sits higher and is heavier than the RWD, so the rated drop would be different. For example, if they estimate a 1.2inch drop for the RWD, it would be more in an AWD because the car is heavier.

    The Challenger, Charger, and 300 have the same suspension across trim levels. I.E. the V6's have the same in all 3 lines and the 5.7's have the same in all 3 lines and so on and so forth. So, what will work for the Charger will work for the 300.

    I mean the awd cant be that much heavier. So basically it would ride a little rougher and be lower than what they say? Ive found springs for the awd charger thats the same year as my 300 and i messaged them and they said it wont fit the 300

    It won't ride any differently. If you look up most coilover and air ride suspension, it will be labled for the Charger/Challenger because those are the "performance models" as Dodge is FCA's "performance" brand.

    That said, I had Charger coilovers on my 300 and my sway bars were from a Challenger SRT8.

    LX is our chassis code...it's the chassis code for the Chargers, Magnums, and 300's. The Challenger is a few inches shorter (4 I believe) so it's LY. But, under the skin, our cars are virtually the same. that's why all of us are on the same forum. You can swap 300/Magnum/Charger front clips, suspension, exhaust, motors, transmissions, brakes, all within reason (i.e. 5.7 <-> 5.7 or 3.5 <--> 3.5 etc). So, the springs will fit in the spring perches because the springs perches are identical. You honestly, probably won't notice the difference in drop. The stock height difference is less than an inch IIRC.

    But, in general, unless you know exactly what you're looking for, if you're searching for something related to performance, and can't find it, look it up for the Charger. It's the same thing.

    Before:

    After:

    I pulled the trigger last month on the Mopar Springs I mentioned above. Here is the end result! The ride is a definitely firmer than stock but not uncomfortable except for a few really bad roads here in SE WI. I'm in real estate so often drive customers around without any concerns. My local tire shop had no problem with alignment after installation.

    so is it safe to assume that these (P4510854) will fit on a 16 300s AWD?
