    SRT to Mopar Suspension

    Has anyone swapped SRT suspension to the Mopar Stage 2 Suspension? Any benefits to it since the SRT suspension is already lowered? I'm at 135k so I'm sure I'm due to upgrade

    It looks like you're in a Charger (the picture is a little hard to see), so you could switch to Challenger SRT8 springs/shocks/struts. I read here on the site that they are 25% stiffer than the Charger ones (assuming that's what you're looking for). I put them on my 300C (non SRT), and they are definitely stiff, but it handles great!

    Other way round, the Charger/Magnum springs are stiffer than Challenger: R/T and SRT spring rates for LX models

    I assume you mean this:
    NEW OEM 2005-2010 DODGE CHARGER MAGNUM CHRYSLER 300 MOPAR STAGE 2 SUSPENSION KIT | eBay
    Mopar Performance Stage 2 Coilover Suspension Kits P4510841 - Free Shipping on Orders Over $99 at Summit Racing
    Depends, are you looking to lower the car even further/stiffen the suspension or just keep it as a good daily driver?

    Yes those are them. My buddy is selling a set that's local to me. Just not sure if I wanna pull the trigger. I just bought hellcat swaybars front and rear with links, would I be alright if I just threw the bars on and keep stock suspension? It's just a daily come summer, no track use with it

    It'll be just fine, for fun daily driver that doesn't scrape the sh!t out of the pavement the stock SRT stuff is great. That's why it's such a good upgrade for the older R/T's. If the 'cat bars are bigger that'll help as well. Just replace your shocks. I put SRT Charger springs and Bilsteins on my 06 R/T along with police bars (the biggest factory ones until the 'cats came along). Made for a very nimble daily.

    Awesome just the info I was looking for. I live in Michigan and the roads here are trash as is so if I went lower I'm sure I'd be scrapping. After scrolling through the forums I see more Challengers going with them Stage 2 set up. Saves me $$ so I'm happy haha. Appreciate it man!

    I have a 2009 charger rt with stock suspension.. I picked up full 300 srt8 front rear suspension including cradles rear diff axels drive shafts , pretty much the whole running gear , minus the trans I’ve change everything over , except the front lower spindles , and brembo ‘s on the front .. in the process cleaning up parts for that part - I’m setting 1- 7/8 lower than stock , ride is a lot stiffer for sure but I like it . The only problem I had was going from 2.62 ratio to a 3.08 car was going in limp mode I just installed a Mopar performance tcm that was in the car and fix that part up ..FYI I only drive this car in the summer as well .
