Thanks guys for all the feedback. Most likely will be adding new Bwoody rear links and rear differential brace.
Have a Great Christmas and Blessed New Year!

Received an email from BlackOps, another 2 to 3 week delay on the Swift springs.

I need a stock rear spring if someone has it laying around collecting dust.

Just installed swift springs last week. My front passenger side sits about an inch higher. Anyone have this issue? Just ordered rear arms to help with the alignment.

Reviving an old thread about the swift springs. I’m on the fence between these and the Eibach SE and wondered what your long term feedback is on the swifts?

I used to have RM mids (1”Front - 1.8” Rear) on my 15 SRT and to me, somehow the swifts actually look closer to these than the eibachs in ride height.

Swift here and no problems. Rides great, I like the way it handles.

I'll have swifts and eibachs for sale in 2 weeks..if anyone is interested
I’m in Australia so do they think that’ll work cost wise. Can you give any feedback on your preference out of the 2?

I love the height of the swifts, aggressive. Just worried they’ll rub for days with 22’s attached

I'll have to looking to shipping. Swifts sit about .5" lower but are bouncier than eibachs. I decided to install air suspuspension.

Just thought i would share my input on lowering springs. I bought from Btsrt both the SE eibachs and the Diablosport suspension control module. Putting just the springs on the TH is a lot more planted and behaves awesome through hairpin corners. The issue is the ride stiffens a lot due to the stock suspension control module. It fun for a while but after 2-3 hours of long distance driving it is not as fun any more. I installed the DS module, things were ok for under 60mph driving, absorbing the bumps a lot softer, but as you increase in speed the suspension in auto gets to track level firmness. Not fun when cruising.

Now taking advantage of the DS customizable settings, i have made the TH softer than oem auto for highway cruising. It is not hard to do if you understand a few things before changing the settings. The cool thing is the controller will ramp up stiffness if it sees a certain “G” load in any direction, for example you swerve suddenly to avoid something. This “G” load is also customizable, you can increase or decrease the G force necessary for the controller to react. Now for the stiffness settings is another story, but pretty easy to understand. The DS controller has a percentange ramp up according to the speed and mode you are in. So basically the faster you go the higher the percentage of stiffness will be generated. The cool thing is, you can adjust these percentages according to what you want, you can even have them the same percentage through the speed range. At the moment i setup my TH in auto mode for ultra soft ride, my wife has a herniated neck and the eibachs made her a pill popping fanatic. Now she tells me my TH rides smoother than her GC summit. We all know the saying “happy wife, happy life”. I have also setup the sport and track modes differently than stock DS maps. Once winter is over I will hit the track and do few laps to set it up better. But the fact that the controller is also G force sensitive makes tuning the suspension really focused for what you need it to do. For anyone having a DS controller installed don’t hestitate connecting a laptop and reading the help file. It is a little difficult to understand in the beggining, but the system becomes logical once you understand how the settings affects the system. Any questions about using the settings please ask, if I don’t know it means its more for me to learn and try and explain.
