Soften ride in rear suspension
« on: May 15, 2018, 11:27:50 AM »
Has anyone had success softening the rear end of challenger/cuda. I can't even ride over a cigarette butt without feeling it. Thanks

What shocks are you running?  A good set of shocks will help a lot.  By "good" shocks, I don't mean Monroe or parts store brand.

What springs are you running?  A worn out set of springs could cause the rear end bumper to contact the floor.

Yes: Even with the XHD springs I don't think these cars ride that bad but you need good shocks.

Lots of options such as Composite springs at any spring rate , , get a good double adjustable shock to work with them .

Iíve seen people tighten u-bolts incorrectly and leaf bushings and bind the springs.

As suggested, it can be done. Lets start with a list of what you have now; leafs, style - part numbers - leaf count; shocks -brand is probably sufficient, bushings styles -type -age, assembled by  whom and how?
