Hell, if you just want it to look lower, and don't care about bottoming the struts out, just get some Eibach spring.. hear those go for ~$200 or something for Neons

I had an SRT-4 before the Lotus. Great car, really enjoyed it.

Had an AGP 50 Trim on it. Lots of drama.

lol drama is a good way to describe her.. beast is almost 10 years old.. i've got an old 60-1 on her.. probably one of the last few who have this turbo.. i know there are better ones.. but its hard to get out and race now-a-days... and this thing gets 33 mpg so i'm good... i have big plans for it once i can get a garage and rip into her... can we say first mid engine hemi in a neon? dont care how long it takes, i'll do it..

I love the srt4. Loved working on it and very easy to see big gains even with the stock turbo. best 4 banger engine ever.
I went with mopar coil overs back in the day and was very happy with them.

Lemme ask ya.....how do you deal with the wheel hop? I wound up having to go with solid engine mounts etc, but then the car vibrated too much for my liking from a street car and went back to poly.

If the srt4 was rear wheel drive id still have it.

theyre very under rated cars. I cant believe how strong the chassis is....I was told they built the chassis to endure the Baja races in competition.
great cars and easy and cheap to mod.
