These mods are not going to affect the longevity of the vehicle and are reasonably cheap to reverse if that's the way you want to go. The mods you need to be wary of are lift or lowering kits. Sometimes these are done really well but other times they are done using the cheapest parts.

It looks like a good SRT and should be a great car to drive. With the Borla exhaust, you may need to extend your budget to include some earplugs:smile2: They sound great when you are blasting around town but on long road trips, not so good.

Does this vehicle have air suspension if so they will lower when parked, in certain modes, and when you hit higher speeds on the highway.

If it has conventional springs they have to be replaced with shorter springs or cheapskates will take their angle grinder to the regular springs, this is not good because it heat created affects the temper of the springs. This seems unlikely on this vehicle when the previous owner has invested so much money in brakes and exhausts.

If it's shorter springs you want to check the shocks. with shorter springs you really need aftermarket shocks that are optimized for the shorter suspension travel. As far as I know, all SRTs have upgraded rear anti-roll bar that really reduces body roll without sacrificing much in the way of comfort.

If you buy and are considering swapping the exhausts, reach out to this forum, you may be able to find somebody willing to do a straight swap. What happened to the exhausts the previous ower removed?

If everything checkout this could be a really good deal, it has $5,000 of mods and the price is about about the same as any other SRT of a similar vintage. Note to self, don't spend thousands of dollars on mods and expect to get your money back when you sell the vehicle!

I don't know your mechanical abilities but with any modded car I would always recommend you get an independent assessment from a good mechanic, unfortunately, these can be hard to find.
