The redesign of the Dodge Charger for 2011 offers modern muscle fans retro taillights and side scoops reminiscent of the fearsome track warriors of the late 1960’s. With its good looks and ferocious Hemi performance, the Charger is once again the king of the street, and with a total vehicle suspension from Hotchkis Sport Suspension, it can claim the title on the track as well.
Despite its sleek new looks, the Charger is still a heavy car, and suffers from excessive under steer and limited roll control in stock form. The Hotchkis Sport Suspension Stage 1 TVS system offers RT owners a sleek lowered stance and dramatically improved handling for superior driver control. R&D engineers used track testing data and real world driving to develop a balanced handling system, comfortable enough for the street, but well balanced for the track.
The system is comprised of 1.75” lowered, higher rate sport coil springs, which provide an improved stance, dramatically improved handling and comfortable driver control thanks to a lower center of gravity. Hotchkis Performance Springs were developed as a complete front and rear balanced system, giving the Charger an aggressive look and brilliant handling.
As part of the TVS, springs are paired with front and rear lightweight, hollow sway bars offering 1.5 (38mm) (100% stiffer than stock) front and 3/4” (19mm) (150% stiffer than stock) rear. The Hotchkis sport sway bar package increases front/rear roll stiffness giving the car crisp, quick turn-in response. The dreaded understeer is eliminated and the handling becomes comfortably neutral with added traction during cornering.
Hotchkis tested numerous models during the R&D process and has kits available for Chargers with and without the stock self-leveling shock option. Talk to one of our techs to find the right package for your car.
All 2011/2012 Charger components are manufactured in the USA, come with complete hardware, greasable bushings and are finished off in a durable powder coated finish.
