(pull right anyone) Fully adjustable LCA’s (~$400/set) or centric LCA bolts are a must in order to give your Magnum a decent handling setup and passable tire wear.

    Also matching your dampers to your new “lowered” setup is a must if you want predictable and competent handling. Stock dampers on a lowered setup will be working out of their effective range. This is far from ideal in the least. Lowering just for the sake of lowering is a “show” queen’s job and is HIGHLY NOT recommended! Real drivers need not apply.
    Demon you were talking about pulling to the right,well my 05 rt has had this problem from the day i brought it,had it in for 2 wheel alignments but still have the pulling problem,they even turned around the tires which are directional tires so they were running backwards and this did help but didn,t like the idea of running directional tires the wrong way,so now I,m back with the pulling problem,any help out there?,really love the car and plan on keeping it a long time

    There's a TSB (technical service bulletin regarding this issue. The alignment specs were changed. to correct the pull. I had the same issue with my '05. I had it done to mine, problem solved.

    Here is the TSB from the factory. Print it out and take it to an alignment shop. Have them follow these instructions.

    Well, my friend runs Kspots on his BMW and he said there fantastic and he knows other guys who run those on other various brans of cars. So your best bet would be to call them up and ask the Ksport people specifically.

    Are they just cheap knock offs or can they give a good ride?

    The suspension elements will be made from light and portable materials, mainly aluminum, that offer much lower unsprung weight when in comparison to placed precious metal. Additionally, these headgear will be associated by higher speedometer bushings, anti-sway cafes and powerful shocks.

    Hey Gang,

    I have a 2005 Magnum R/T. It has Eibach lowering springs and I'm having a problem with it bottoming out when going over bumps. I carry about 850 lbs of audio/video equipment in the rear. Is there a suspension system that will allow me to adjust ride height, such as air struts, but will maintain load capacity when deflated?

    Thanks,
    tunes64

    Sorry,
    Let me rephrase that last sentence. Is there a suspension system that will allow me to adjust ride height, such as air bags, but will maintain the load capacity throughout the adjustment range?

    With that much weight, I'd say bags.

    Yes. Ask around the site. There are some guys with airide on here and I'm sure they'll point you in the right direction!
