    Default No luck finding lowering springs

    I've called eibach, tein, k&w and mopar today and so far k&w is the only company who has verified that they are looking at putting out a spring kit for the 200. The rep at k&w said that even if they do decide to come out with a kit, it will most likely not be out until first quarter of next year at the earliest. The mopar rep said that the kit on the super s was a one off and there are no plans for a lowering kit nor a cat back system in the works as of yet.

    Let's get on these companies and show them that we want a lowering kit for our car!

    My convy sits low enough as it is.

    Everytime I go head first into a parking spot I scrape my front bumper on the curb.

    I can't imagine all the extra damage that would happen if I were to lower it any further?

    I'm coming to the 200 after driving 3 very modified vehicles over the last 8 years. The last being a 3 series bmw that was dropped 1.5", so I'm used to sitting on the ground. After a while you just get used to taking extra precautions not to scrape.

    I can see that making sense.

    I've been riding high for the last 14 years so going to a car of any kind seems quite low to me. Although I will admit that driving my brother's Civiv on the weekend sure made my 200 feel like I was back in a SUV. LOL.....

    Mopar has a cat back out already? The rep told me all they had available were front and rear strut tower braces and a CAI. I checked the mopar site, but I'm having a hard time finding it as well...

    I agree with blono we gotta get these companies to start making kits to lower the 200s. However some shops say alternative options include COMPREESSING the factory springs or cutting them. What do you guys think of this??
