Mopar Lowering spring- Happy?

I'm considering getting the Mopar lowering springs installed. Dealer gave me a cost of $730 with kit and labor. For those that have them on their SRT.. are you happy with the ride? I only want to moderately lower the car and not go too low but do not want to ruin the current ride quality that I think is pretty good.

Thanks!

I was quoted $680 including the alignment (a week later) just this morning not including parts.

Got it on my 2014 and love it. Perfect stance and less sway as well due to the lower center of gravity!

Got any measurements from fender to ground? Hard to tell from the pictures just how low it is.

Thanks

Before:
Left front - 32 1/16"
Right front - 32 1/8"
Left rear - 33 3/8"
Right rear - 33 1/2"

After:
Left front - 31 1/4"
Right front - 31 1/8"
Left rear - 32"
Right rear - 32 1/2"

Now, keep in mind, that was fresh after being let off the hoist, and just moved to another stall in my shop 20 feet away.

I haven't measured again, since I put the springs in about 3 months ago, but I also haven't driven it in 2 months. I can't measure again until it comes out of hibernation, as it's up on dollies for the winter.

Only 3 1/2 more months to go. 😭
