    Am thinking of lowering my 16 scat challenger with these springs. As you know these cars already ride pretty firm, will installing these make it even worse?

    I don't have the answer but noticed that my 2017 SPS does ride firmer compared to my 2016 RT Plus Shaker. I wanted to lower it and would not mind lowering my new one either. But not sure at the expense of a rougher/firmer ride. Will watch this thread.

    Can not comment on H & R Springs, but I did install Mopar Lowering Springs on mine. I can't tell a difference in the ride from stock springs to the Mopar lowering springs, to me it's exactly the same.

    I can't comment on the H & R. I have the KW H.A.S. I really like the ride and the stance.

    Yes, height adjustable springs. There is a collar on the spring so you can adjust ride height. I look at as a in between of coil overs and regular springs.

    You should check out there web site.

    can't comment on your ride, but I used to have an 2015 SXT with 22s with low profiles. It was also lowered. I rode pretty rough.... almost to the point I feared pot holes. When I traded up to the Scat, I swore I wouldn't lower it. Just my thoughts.
