The search feature is a wonderful thing!?

Adding any lowering springs without first checking the complete suspension system for wear is not advisable. This includes the front struts,bearing caps, bushings and rear shocks.


A Flowmaster muffler on a CAT system may reduce the TurboCharged 2.4 engines output. The CFM equal or less than a stock muffler.
But I understand why you choose it.

Yeah I knew the cat would be a problem but when I installed the muffler I got a high flow cat installed as well. the car sounds 1000 times better

Yeah I looked a tein and love them my car has 60k I got the entire car looked over after I rebuilt it by a chrysler dealer and they gave my car a 10 out of 10 as far as mechanically and suspension wise this was about 8 months ago do you think I should have the suspension componets looked over again before I add the lowering springs.

If you get the springs of your choice measure all four corners before installation and then after. Your new installed height should be very close to the advertised specification. If not than you know to look closer at the suspension.

Most PTs or left hand drive vehicles will be slightly lower on the drivers side natural wear.
