Drop spindles will push those wheels real close to 3/4" outside the fenders. The wheels are just a hair outside anyway and the spindles add 5/8" to each side.
No problem cutting down a 2" coil, cut 1/2 a coil off the front for 1" of drop. Cut a full coil off the rear springs for 1" of drop.

Here's a McGaughy's 2/4 spring kit cut to a 3/5 on my 2012 R/T with the same wheels you want.

Thanks. I actually looks different now but I didn't want the lower look with the body kit to throw off the OP.
