Has anyone installed the Eibach 0.7" x 1.6" Pro-Kit Front and Rear Lowering Coil Springs? There seems to be no distinction for the "load leveling" shocks that are listed with the stock tow package. Have also been considering either a catback exhaust system or just removing the "suitcase" mid muffler. After extensive video watching and reviews there seems to be an overwhelming lean towards the hack mod over catback, but no discussion of overall satisfaction or factory warranty voids, and certainly no clear winner on brand for catbacks. I'm partial to FlowMaster, but only because that's all I've ever used on Mustang as part of full Basani exhaust and muffler only on Silverado. Any insight will be greatly appreciated.

Quick update, decided to have the "suitcase" cut out and simply replaced with pipe for about $150. Its exactly as most videos and reviews describe: sounds deeper than stock but very mild and only screams when you get on the throttle. I did notice it has a very tinny "blahhh" at the top of the note before shift, not sure if that's a Durango Hemi thing or a byproduct of the "hack"

That’s a result of hacking up the exhaust. Do a cheap mod get a cheap result.

Is it though? I have noticed in several vids of cat back exhaust that it also makes that type of noise (granted, perhaps less or no tin). Essentially, isn't only removing the suitcase the same as a commercial catback system minus the x or h pipe and replacement of the stock cans....

Far from the same. The tinny is the lack of muffler. I did this hack and got home and ordered the Corsa. Removing the muffler sounds cheap and like total shit imho.

Update? I have 2018 R/T and want to change LL to non. Not really getting any straight forward answers on what is best. I hear Mopar is way to go, but the parts numbers people post for shocks are not for 18

my 2018 has the Eibach lowering springs. We did have to replace the rear load leveling shocks with just standard ones. But it's a great ride and feels no different than stock really.

besides eibach, what other springs/shocks would yield the lowest stance before going with airbags?
Blackops has a different set. Also you might be able to use JSRT springs, but I would confirm with blackops that they will fit and not cause issues since the SRTs have adjustable shocks.

Doubt you guys will see this 3 years later, but i cut out the two back mufflers on my 15 RT and left the suitcase and that shit sounds excellent. After hearing people with their suitcase removed it sounded to idk..slappy, but ill be honest for a cheap cut and weld i think that shits totally worth it if you werent looking to drop on an exhaust
