ebay srt4 coilovers

I think this is the same brand that Mo par use.

asked the guy on ebay if he sold coilovers for the srt models, he said this would work on the srt.

I do not think they are the same. Right?

yes same brand as Mopar
yes will work on your SRT
but you need to make sure the spring rates are what you want
they look fine to me

Mopar sells the rebadged v2 version. These are variant 3 and better, best out there for the cali and probably one of the best around.

Guess we can save a couple of hundred going ebay, with a better model to boot.

How hard is it to change the dampening and such for a good street, strip tune? Is it fairly difficult for a suspension newbie to set the v3s up correctly? Has anyone even installed the v3s? lol

It's as easy as turning the knob on top of each strut. On the KW's you have 14 settings (clicks) to choose from and can be easily tunable to your preference as you would feel the difference.

I wouldn't recommend buying these just for street use as BC's are way cheaper and do the job fairly well even though the spring rates are not ideal for track orientations.
If one plans on tracking their cars than this would be the pretty obvious choice and the 700$ difference in price is justified.

Thanks for the response. I love the price on the BCs but the rear spring rate kills it for me, because I road race a few times a season.
