    What's wrong with changing the suspension on an SRT? Plenty of people do it on HSV's...

    Exactly! If he actually knew what he was talking about instead of flapping his trap to start with he might be better off. Biggest complaint of any Hellcat OR SRT owner is suspension lets it down. Awesome in a straight line, crap around corners. Been the problem with Viper's for years.

    Would love to give mine to WP and see what they could actually do to really tweak the suspension. It's an awesome base of a vehicle, but suspension lets it down pushing hard into corners as too oversteer which might be the Pirelli Runflats

    see if u can get some fat sway bars for it the stock ones are probably smaller so it still flexes to get grip off road where u need the opposite for cornering on road

    Thanks guys will try Quadrant
    Quadrant have been around for years,...they assisted Brock with his road car suspensions, and I've dealt with them on several occasions, but I can't see them on the net, so maybe they've closed,...consequently contact the new Bilstein agent to find a REPUTABLE person,....and with a high performance vehicle like you're talking about, and the suspension issues you've mentioned, you will need to find someone with a bit of prior experience with your type of "Beast"!!....a few of my friends have 'em!

    Thanks Pickles. I don't know a great deal about HDT cars but I thought I remembered the Quadrant name in association with HDT.

    How do your friends find their SRT with respect to the same issue? Can't find anyone to really speak to over it and all the dealership says to me is "Yes that's the most common negative feedback we get". I've tried North American forums but they all just use an Eibach lowered spring and drop them on their guts. I don't want to do that if I can because the wife will then hit the concrete stops in shopping centre carparks and damage underneath the front bar like she did on our white GTS (Grizzle, grr, grr)
    I believe with the unavailability of the Holden V8 from the end of 2017 there will be a lot more SRT's on the road so I feel it would be worthwhile for one of the Big Boy's to develop something for our conditions and Bilstein would be a perfect choice.

    07GTS:- Yes that was what came to mind first too, but the oversteer feels like it might be tyre related (Pirelli Scorpion Verde 295/45/ZR20's all round) or possibly weak shocks so felt it would be best to seek out a real suspension expert to get to the bottom of things.
    I love, and I mean absolutely love the way the BMW' X5's sit on the road when pushed hard into corners. There is just no body roll and I'd love to be able to do something like that with the SRT but still have a nice compliant ride.

    I also have an SRT Jeep as well as my HSV.
    the best thing I ever did was to replace those horrible runflats with some nice 22 inch wheels .
    It made a huge difference.

    Just a thought - **** Johnson Racing or some such other racing team may be able to steer you towards a specialist. The teams must get equipment advice from somebody.

    American cars have never been good at going around corners. They have too few roads, apart from urban streets that require actual "driving."
