Someone should go to a reputable shop and express interest.. after all there's a lot more of you slammed guys than a few years ago....

Or just try and get a company to make shorter shock bodies for the coilovers (BC might already, but maybe not short enough).

now your bringing a new pitcher into the ball game. figured we were just talking about bolting up coils and slamming cars to the ground lol. and besides no one makes extended top hats for the srt afaik, this would be lovely to have!

what I did was loosen the two lock nuts under the spring until i could move the spring around loosly, then I read around on megan's site to tighten the nuts until the spring compresses about 1/2 an inch all the way around.

and then the bottom lock nut is what you use to move the coil up and down to lower the car. (obviously) HAHA

but it seems pretty legit to me, that way over bumps and stuff, it wont be as harsh as the spring will be able to still compress and take some of the shock from the bumps!

FYI: Megan also suggests to over look the collars, tophats, and nuts every oil change, make sure you can move them, and I would keep something on them so dirt doens ruing the thread. i notice my top nuts like to come loose every now and again, and when it does I get loud noice from the everything bouncing around haha.

I agree with thatguy, the megans really are a nice coilover set when adjusted correctly...

I ride on megans pretty low, I have them set 6 clicks from full soft and they ride pretty smooth.

honestly they shouldn't be that hard to make. These are not CNC'd ones and they work fine:


Just need a vendor that can make then and some demand for em. That way you guys wouldn't have to run preload



That green SRT up there is about the only one I'd consider slammed from those pics, looks good!
