Default Rear Drop

I am thinking about lowering the rear of the truck 2" with the Ground Force coil/shock kit (#91214) and was wondering if anyone has any experience or info on this? Will ride quality suffer at all with such a small drop? I had a slammed s10 back in the day and the ride sucked...but i dropped it way more than 2 inches.

Also, this might be a dumb question, but the "death wobble" only occurs when lifting the front end of the truck right?

Thanks.

I have the GF 2" rear drop on my `11 and am happy--no issues at all. The ride seems about the same and it looks much better, IMO. Go for it!

I am thinking about doing the same drop and need advice also. How much will it effect towing? Will it sit completely level? I read something about 1/4" spacer on another thread.

I believe the way they design them is to have the same payload, so towing shouldn't be effected, but may sit a little lower in the rear is all. I cut an extra set of RT springs to lower mine, and have my stock springs as well (they have about 25% more payload to start out with). If I ever tow/haul a heavy load I'll swap out the springs as it's extremely easy and only takes about 30 minutes start to finish.
