Someone of you probably know.... for example if bought 18inches wheels for my Trep... should i drop my coils springs like:

1"Front/ 1"Rear
Pro-Kit; Lowering Coil Springs
Brand: Eibach
Part #: 2852.140

or

1.90"Front/ 1.70"Rear
Lowering Springs - Lowering Springs (Front: 1.90 / Rear: 1.70). Fits the Dodge Intrepid, Chrysler 300M, and Chrysler Concorde from 1998 to 2004.

Nice find....low mileage.
If you want to keep it running tip top, plan to do all maintenance items before you even think of modding the car. 2.7 are maintenance whores, but run well when kept up.

Keep the oil changed on or before the 5000KM mark every time, using nothing but quality filters and oils and that will make the biggest impact on the engine. Check your coolant levels and oil every so often to catch a failing water pump. Do the water pump and timing change every 80K and your set forever IMO. lol

I see one really important maintenance item . Not to say the rest isint. Synthetic oil chage 5w-30. The way i understand it. Someone correct me if im wrong once you use synthetic oil you have to keep using it,it makes a big difference. . Especially if is a full synthetic. I use 10w -30 quaker stat full synthetic and my car runs better. But anyway wecome to the forum. And when the mode bug bites look out . It will be one big adventure. The people on here are very helpful a use the search button for alot of it. But anyway welcome and nice car.
