Do you feel the mopar sway bars are a good upgrade on the stock caliber srt-4 suspension? There has been some conflict about using the upgraded sway bars without coilovers. I just ordered them and am hoping it's fine, because I have no plans for coilovers.

Was there any difference in parts between an 08 caliber srt-4 and an 09? Why did you allow esp to be turned completely off on the 09's by holding the button down?

Why was the intercooler installed in the upper part of the bumper? Theres room in the lower portion of the bumper, and thats where all the aftermarket companies are putting it. Is there a downside of having it in the lower portion? Any benefits?

Welcome again guys for what's shaping up to be a great session, and with a lot of first timer questions being posted in here. Great to see! I'd like to personally thank you all for doing these sessions each and every month on our forums since late 2005. I hope this will continue for a LONG time to come!!!

Most of us LX SRT8 owners are well versed in pulling fuse #11 (2005 - 2007) and fuse #2 (2008 - 2009) in the FPDC when our cars go into what we call "granny mode" from driving around town. It's a well known and accepted practice by most of us to pull this fuse for 30 seconds to return the TCM learned adaptives to factory settings and drive it like we stole it in auto stick mode to return shift crispness etc. It also clears certain codes.

My question is, what is the equivelent fuse that will clear the adaptives in the GC SRT8? Mine's an 08 BTW, so I don't know if the fuse #'s are the same from 2006 - 2009. Also, any way to slow down this quick learning, or should we always drive it like we stole it?

Please don't tell me pulling this fuse is a myth...haha!!!

Bernie

Caliber SRT4 compression?

Can you say what the PSI specification is when performing a compression test? My 2003 Neon SRT-4 with Stage 3 and 85K miles reads 170, 170, 170, 168 (battery tired on last pot). Should I expect a similar number with my 2008 Caliber SRT4 that has 8200 miles? Are there any special steps when performing a compression on the CSRT's VVT motor? (other than key on, WOT, crank a few times, read gauge...). Thanks.

Good luck to each and all of you with the FIAT merger.

Not to be redundant.. but thanks again for coming on and answering our questions.

mine is about the clicking noise I keep having from my drivers side front suspension.
https://www.caliberforums.com/forums/...ad.php?t=13957

I have had the dealer tighten up this axle nut TWICE and the problem came back once already... I am picking it up again today... and if it comes back again what should I have the dealer do? What damage could this cause? Is it still okay to get on it when im driving or will that loosen things up?

honestly it scares me any part of my suspension is "clicking/popping" because I have no idea why it would be doing this over and over.

EDIT:
just picked the car up from the dealer again. Driving back home, the clicking sound has returned... not as bad as it was a few days ago. It happened when I accelerated from a stop light. The dealer says everything is tight.. they checked.. but still dont see anything wrong.

now this is just frustrating because something could be wrong and NO ONE knows what it is!!!

2009 CSRT-4 FSM's

Hi guys (Generic term, not gender specific term!!)

I've been trying to get the FSM's (Factory Service Manuals) from Resolve for the 2009 CSRT-4 without any luck. Are there any HUGE differences in the FSM's for 2008 vs 2009? I guess I want to know if the 2008 FSM will cover almost everything the 2009 FSM can (will??)??

Can I get the FSM's on CD or just a print version? I had the FSM's for my 2004 NSRT-4 and found them a little awkward at times and I think viewing the PDF on a laptop will provide a better experience.

BTW, thanks for making two fantastic vehicles!! While the CSRT is a tad more civilized than its older brother , it's still a whole pile of fun to drive and "compete".

Hope to see you around for many more successful years to come!!

A gentle reminder folks...

ONE question per post, please!
If you have more than one question, just break them out into separate posts.

-Thanks!

How accurate is the EVIC on the SRT models? Is it almost as accurate as the Gtech Performance Meter?
