    Excellent amount of info, and just about everything I've read on these cars gives the same opinion of the parts. Sub'd for later reading and hopefully this will end up a sticky.

    After some input & discussion w/user '00 Trans Ram', I updated the Coilover & Strut/shock sections with more detail on shock dynos, adjustment characteristics, and more. Is really good info.
