With the classic, American rear-wheel drive platform pretty much extinct, we applaud everyone over at Chrysler for keeping the LX platform alive! It’s hard to beat a full-size, rear-wheel drive car, especially when equipped with the classic Hemi V8…but, as good as the LX platform is, we think the stance still leaves a lot to be desired.
With that in mind, we sharpened our pencils and set out to design the lowest adjustable suspension possible with simple bolt-on installation. Low is certainly a cool statement, but “low” can be achieved in many different ways—and we decided to do it the RIGHT way. What is the “right” way, you ask? Well, not only did we engineer our kit to have a ground-hugging stance, but we designed it to enhance performance handling and improve ride quality. Try getting all that out of a set of lowering springs or coilovers!
Our front kit features a threaded body monotube shock with 30 levels of damping adjustment, topped off with a smooth-riding, double-bellow air spring. The struts look just as good as they perform, from the black chromed steel shock bodies to the bright red anodized air spring end caps, all attached to an anodized upper mount with a high-quality monoball bearing. Put this all together and you can now drop the front of your LX 4.88 inches from that unsightly OEM ride height.
For the rear, we tossed out the factory coil spring in favor of our double-bellow air spring allowing you to drop 6.69 inches from stock. To make sure your rear end isn’t bouncing down the road, we use a 30-level damping, monotube, threaded body shock to complement the front shock.
