Lowering A Dodge SRT-10
Sport Truck Soup-Up
The Dodge Ram SRT-10 pickup is the most feared factory tailgate dragger on the streets. To improve both the '05 SRT-10 pickup's stance and handling we decided to lower the center of gravity to help eliminate some of the body roll during heavy cornering and nose-diving during braking. To do so we called on McGaughy's Suspension in Fresno, California. Their Dodge SRT-10 Viper truck lowering kit would be the answer. At the same time it was smart to install the McGaughy's rear airbag helper kit that would assist while carrying heavy loads or towing. The McGaughy's lowering kit consists of 2-inch shorter progressive coils for the front. The rear received a 41/2-inch drop by flipping the rear axle housing assembly atop the rear leaf springs. To handle the install while we took the photos, we drove over to Trader's Sport Truck, in Santa Fe Springs, California, and our SRT-10 was ready to roll with added handling performance and roll with added styling in just a few hours. Does your truck need a new suspension? Give McGaughy's a call today.
