    I have purchased the K&W Shocks & Springs and will be mounting HRE 542R (19/20")Wheels. I need some recomendations on how low I can go? I only do typical street driving and understand the speed bump and driveway issues. Any suggestions would be grateful!

    Only you can decide that. Do you mind hitting some speed bumps? do you drive exceptionally bumpy roads? steep driveway/parking lots?

    With 19/20's I'd go as low as possible, unless I had some of the problems above... my $0.02

    Thanks for replying! I live in Illinois so the roads are not the best. As far as speed bumps, I avoid streets that have them. Are there any issues as far as the turning sarply and having the tires rub the inner fenders?

    I've just went thru this. Had to adjust - readjust about 7 or 8 times. It's amazing what 1/16" of an inch can do. I've got CCW505A's on my black SRT10 and it's dropped and it looks M E A N ... :)

    If you go for the slammed look, it will scrape. There is no way around it. I like mine real low and just cringe a little when I enter/exit steep drive ways or go over speed bumps. :)

    My rear tires will rub the top of the fender well if I hit a large dip on freeways or running at higher speeds.

    I am tooooo scared to measure. If I do, I just might come to my senses.

    Best looking SRT I have ever seen! However, I am partial to my silver 4x4. ;)

    Here are pics when i had my KW V2 coilovers. I just swaped them out for a set of DLM coilovers.

    With the DLM coilovers i set the car a tiny bit higher in the front and lower in the rear then these pics you see here.

    3.25 inches under the nose.

    lowest point on the car would be the front jack point at 3 inches.
