Differences between ACR and regular SRT-4?

Apparently, because I have less than 50 posts, I can't use the search function. So, I'll ask my question here.

I'm trying to figure out ALL mechanical & performance differences between the SRT-4 ACR and the regular SRT-4.

So far, using a Google search, I've come up with this as what separates an ACR from a regular SRT-4:

From Wikicars.org (Dodge SRT-4): - Wikicars
"The return of the ACR name plate in 2005, with the package available only on the SRT-4, included:

- 16x7 BBS RX light-weight wheels with 40 mm offset
- 225/45/16 BFG KDW2 tires
- one inch lower ride height
- 5-way adjustable Tokico Illumina dampers
- Thicker front and rear sway bars
- Stiffer rear tension strut bushing
- ACR embroidered Viper inspired seats with Viper racing harness slots
- ACR decals on the bottom of the front doors
- Full-size spare with accompanying ultra-high performance tire
- There were a total of 1,175 SRT-4 ACR’s produced: 225 red, 211 tangerine, 306 white, 433 black. "

Is that it? Anything else?

Also, what's a "rear tension strut bushing"?

Thanks!

Thanks for the reply.

Yes, I'm only interested in 2004-2005 models, mainly for the LSD.

Is that it? Anything else?

Also, what's a "rear tension strut bushing"?

Thanks!
The speedometer is also recalibrated for the tire size. The bushings on the rear tension strut are harder, but far from performance grade. You can see pictures of this suspension device in the suspension section where I took pictures of the bushing upgrade.

This answers a lot of questions of why all these noobs are asking questions.

Not able to use the search function? I don't believe it. We would NEVER take away a newbs ability to search.

The ACR version of the SRT-4 has handling that is night and day better than the regular SRT-4, it wasn't like Mopar just tossed a couple parts on the car and said "here we go". These were track tested components, the rims themselves were worth more than what Dodge charged for the ACR upgrade.

Yah, 1200 dollars for more than 2500 dollars worth of upgrades, "nothing special"? Okay

I must be going senile then (I'm not that old, either). I could swear that I got a message telling me that I need 50 posts to use the search feature. I realize that's also the case for the buying/selling forum.
