Default SXT to SRT spindle question

I need to switch out the spindle / knuckle on my 05 SXT to and SRT4 piece for wheel clearance issues(unless anyone knows of a way to slightly bend the tension rod???)
Does anyone know if the sway from SXT to SRT spindle is a direct swap. The SRT did come with rear drum stock right? If the rear drum of the srt and the SXT were the same then it should work. Can anyone verify this?

Thanks in advance.

the SRT-4 has rear disc brakes, not drums.

4 wheel disk and I think you need the entire front LCA's and Rack, you should have the "long" rack and the SRT has the short rack.

I'm almost positive you need the Front Lower control arms, Sway bar and Knuckles. Rear I'd guess rear Lower control arms, Tension struts (should be same type SXT's are a bit thinner dia), Knuckles, E brake cable set-up maybe the same to the back axle.

Wow...

the rear control arms are the same on all neons, srt-4 or not. Just get the knuckle and brake setup and move it over as an assembly. Your existing struts will be just fine.

You'll very likely need the booster and master cylinder, at which point you'll want to find a wrecked SRT-4 and swap everything over.

So you dont think doing just the spindle will work? I'm wondering if its more worth it to rally try and bend the trailing arm just a hair....ugh. I

you should really just use the neon arm and get upgrade bushings.

The problem is that I need to get wheel clearance from the tension strut. Just a few MM's should do the trick. It rubs on the 8" 35mm offset wheels.

If ur asking if u can just use ur spindle from ur sxt on the srt knuckle then ur answer is yes. I have done rear disc swaps and I know for a fact they are the same (same part number) By the way Go to 2gn.org stuff like this is asked and done daily over there u should find their info there helpful for this type of stuff.

To do a front swap u need the knuckles, calipers and brake lines and swap the rack out everything else can stay. The master cylinder only needs to be swapped out if u plan on going BBK since a base neon one cant supply enough pressure to run them properly.

If anything you might need the rear prop valve for any 2nd gen with disc brakes should you go from drums to disc. Also i dont remember who but someone was selling those tension rods that were "S" bent for wheel fitment in the rear. I think it was either victors neon goodies or maybe it was Lorenzo, i could be wrong. Maybe a easy fix would be a 1/8" wheel spacer, just a thought.
