i ordered a set of dropzone springs a few months ago, but i haven't installed them yet. i also am wanting to order the grip front bumper for my car at the end of the month. i know the springs lower the car 2'' and i heard the bumper is 2'' lower as well, that's a total of about 4'' of drop.. i have 265/35r/22 rims as well. will i scrape the ground? or is this not a good idea? i want my car lower but defff want the grip bumper too! what can i do? thanks-Dom

The grip is low and has some issues with clearance.

The very front of the Grip's lip dips pretty low. I'm reading about people using SRT8 springs instead of other vendors because the drop of the isn't as great. Dropzones and a Grip kit makes for a really aggressive look. How healthy are the roads in NY?

Driveways will be your enemy. I know someone will a Grip kit and a very low stance but he had to adjust his route to various places to avoid damage. The roads here aren't that great and when the winter hits it's downright nasty. In my area I would get the kit but dropping it 2 inches would be out for sure. But it would look really sweet!

I have read that the grip is lower that the SRT and with the 2" drop it will be hell to take care of especially around dips, speed bumps, high parking lots, parking stoppers, etc etc... Just take them slow and at an angle.
I'll be happy to take the springs off your hands if you Change you mind LoL!!

If you still want it lowered after the Grip is installed i would go with the Mopar stage ones, you will get a little more then an inch of drop on the V6 models and not quite an inch and half on the R/T or SRT..

dropzones are the same drop as KSports. I would like to get the grip front end, but I think my stock bumper is close to the ground already. Only other solution is to get air bags.....
X2 i agree with that :D

SRT springs would drop an R/T 3/4" to 1", not sure about a V6 car. If you decide to go this route, I have the part numbers. Even from a dealer the OEM prices are right in line with aftermarket, or less. Even with my stock R/T lower fascia I've tagged it a few times. When I visit my mom I have to enter or exit her driveway at an angle.
