Wish i searched about the mopar springs to know that the gray plastic thing on the springs belonged in the back before i went to the shop. Just hate making another trip there and no guarantees the shop is even available to fix it tomorrow.


Yes.. the mopar instructions are like one page lol seem like a parts list lol.. they should of at least label the spring or something..

Shops learn this by doing it backwards once. It's not uncommon.

Just installed my springs, can't believe I had them sitting in my garage for over 2 years ha. There is slightly more feedback in the rear but everything else feels fine and the stance is perfect imo, not too low. I couldn't be more happy with them.

I had mine installed in February. They should come from the factory with these. The wife was skeptical and afraid that it'd be too low, but once she saw it, she loved it!

I've seen some talk about the rear springs having to be positioned a specific way in the bottom cradle. Can anyone tell or show me the correct position?

Per the service manual, the rear springs should be oriented with the part number sticker facing straight to the outside of the vehicle. Be sure the springs with the gray plastic on them are used in the rear.

2017 SRT MOPAR Lowering Springs Installed

I just installed these springs on my 2018 SRT. The kit came with 4 new bump stops, but we only installed 2 of them on the fronts. Nothing I’ve read references removing the rear shocks to install the other 2 bump stops. Is it necessary to install the new rear bump stops?

Edit to add: we went back and pulled the rear shocks and swapped in the new bump stops. It was very easy to remove the rear shock assemblies and I figured there was no sense chancing anything.

I wanted to add a couple notes for anyone who comes to this thread that is doing the spring install themselves like I did on my 2018 SRT.

Rear bump stops: I couldn't find any information regarding the rear bumps stops. Youtube videos and the service manual cover removing the rear spring with the shock in place and don't mention swapping the bump stop. The rear shock assembly is easily removed and you then have to disassemble it to swap out the bump stop.

Alignment: I waited about 10 days for the springs to settle and took it to a local alignment shop. They refused to do the alignment due to the Adaptive Cruise Control. Apparently, the ACC needs to be reset whenever a wheel alignment is done and the shop was not equipped to do it. The alignment shop said not resetting the ACC can create a dangerous situation and referred me to the dealer.

I hope this helps my fellow DIY'ers...
