I emailed those guys asking that question and they stated that all their kits come with the new endlinks for the rear.But they might be talking about if you buy the sway bar and spring kit all together. The amount of drop the rear gets with their springs I would think you would need the new shorter endlinks. I don't understand why they would not include them with their spring set with that being when they are needed (lowering).
How long did it take for you to get them after ordering? I am thinking of getting these.Post some before and aft photos if you can. :thumbsup:

I have the springs and front/rear sways installed on my SRT. When I talked to the Hotchkis guys at the UDM they said that the stock springs work well with the stock suspension setup because the drop is 3/4 inch in front and a little over an inch in the rear(not like eibachs0. They did not indicate that new endlinks will be needed with the stock suspension although I did have the whole TVS kit installed and not just the springs.

you are going to need camber kits if you want to have stock camber, or if you want to be able to dial it in for ideal handling.

yeah i was there earlier today
And did you call? I am sure they will have the answer your looking for...Or ask your alignment shop that you are going to use. You will need a 4 wheel alignment after you install the springs. BTW the eibach springs are a larger drop and should have adjustable struts

ANY time you lower a car, you are going to need an alignment. On the strut front suspension, you will get negative camber and toe out. The toe out will kill your tires and make the car twitchy on turn in.

On my car, as with any srt-4, the amount of camber is never the same, even side to side. Before my alignment after I installed my springs, I had -1.1 on the driver side and -0.7 on the pass side and .35" of toe out.

Also, I HATE camber/crash bolts. They are a smaller diameter bolt shank than stock. They work, but if you plan to autoX or road race, I would slot your struts instead, that is a better way to do it. Camber plates would be the best choice, but they can be $$$, slotting is pretty much free.


To whomever asked, the SRT-4 does not require endlinks with just springs.
