Installation price for a ground force drop??
 
I'm handy with small things, but I've never really done anything with suspension before. Currently, I have a 2012 Ram express with 22" KMC slides. This spacing in the wheel well is kind of getting on my nerves and would like to do a slight drop. I've looked at other Rams and leaning towards a 2/4 I guess. If I was to buy the kit from Ground Force, or Bell Tech and took the truck to a shop, what price am I looking at for the installation?

If you are handy with small things you can easily tackle the install yourself. The belltechs come with good step by step instructions.


I would imagine a shop would charge 2-3 hours to install

After a little research I found that the 2/4 kits are around $800. For now, I may just want to go with a 2" rear drop. SS4Luck, I was looking for some rear drops by belltech and couldn't really find any. All I found was the Ground Force rear drop for around $300. You know where I could find a belltech rear drop or maybe better prices?

IF your express is 4x4 like mine go with groundforce, if its 2wd go with Belltech

I couldn't find a Belltech 2" rear drop for my regular cab express. Ended up going with the 2" rear ground force and literally just got it from Fedex. Should install it on thursday....hopefully

Well I didn't have any jack stands and didn't really feel like laying on back, so I went to a local shop and got my groundforce installed. Took the guys I'd say 30 minutes and they only charged me $68. I'd say that amount was pretty fair for the installation. What do you guys think?

Where is it? lol

Sorry, to clarify, it was just the 2" GroundForce rear drop that was installed, not front and back. The shop is located near Tampa, FL.
