My version of the Big Black Thing but it'll be hidden under the rear bumper/valance!
Understood, you like to keep your big black thing out of the daylight.

The Big Black Thing! Thanks to Dan for finding this! Included a plug-n-play wiring kit as shown for one ridiculously low price including shipping. Chrysler doesn't sell the Mopar Hidden Hitch anymore so this is a fantastic deal.

Unless it doesn't fit! Although the chart indicates all Magnums. The SRT-8 isn't specifically listed but the R/T is. The rear valance on the R/T and the SRT-8 is about the same size in that area so it should fit. Frames are the same on all Magnums.

Got some freebies for the meet if I can make it. I'll wait until tomorrow or Sat when I can get confirmation of the green light!

Got the new OEM front strut Bearing/seat pair today. Compared them to the Moog bearing and the construction/design looks almost identical as shown in the pictures below. The only difference? The thickness of the white nylon bearing race in the center. The OEM bearings have a thicker nylon race and are a snug slip fit on the OEM strut mount. The Moog bearing is a poor fit with what I'd guess is at least .030" clearance between the I.D. of the bearing and O.D. of the strut mount post. Here's the pics for your viewing pleasure.

Here's the OEM bearing in the following three pictures:





Here's the bottom of the Moog bearing that you can compare to the picture directly above. The White Nylon race is thinner.



Here's side by side comparisons of the OEM and Moog Bearings. Top and Bottom. OEM is on the left and Moog on the right in both pictures. Note the design and construction is just about identical.

Now ready to do a Mix-n-Match on the Monroe Quickstruts and OEM Parts. Fronts will get OEM strut mounts and bearings along with a swap to the original R/T springs. That'll be Phase I.

Rears will get a swap of R/T springs only. Going to source used rear spindles locally and new long bolts. That way there won't be any surprises when it comes to the actual change out. Phase II.

Purchased two cans of Plastidip today. Ready for my project on the Ricer! w00t!

Also purchased some bumper paint today which should match the Special "ground effects" color so I can match up the front bumper cover lower to the rest of the car. And got some "Trim Paint". Going to try that on the Ricer window surrounds/trim to see what it looks like.

NAPA FTW!
