Default Ground Force Suspension!!!!!

Hey guy's , what do you think about the ground force suspension kit?
Iam looking into getting the full kit with the lowering shocks.

Has anyone used the product?

Is the quality good? Stiff /Bounce ride ?

Is there any other suspension out there springs and shocks that will give me a lower drop and a nice ride?

I put the groundforce kit on my 2011 r/t. Very pleased with look and ride.
There are other kits too - a search on this forum should provide you with lots of info

I installed the Ground Force 2/3 kit on my truck about 8000 miles ago and must say, I couldn't be happier with the way the truck now looks and how much better it handles on the road. It now has a much sportier feel to it. Not at all bumpy.Please remember that I have a Crew cab, Im not sure what you are driving. I installed the kit by myself which went well. no problems. A couple reasons why i went with ground force is the fact that the 3" rear drop was perfect for me. And the other reasons were that I really did not want to do any cutting off of my bump stop cups like a couple other kits have you do. the only mod on the ground force kit is to drill two 1/2" holes to raise the rear sway bar up. I had the aligment re-done with no problems at all. After about a week of driving the truck settled to exactly 3" rear and 2" front. I think i paid $620.00 for the kit and $98.00 for the alignment. It is for sure a top quailty kit. By far the single best mod I have done to my truck. . Good Luck with what ever you choose.


here is a thread I started when I had a few questions months back. Also some installation pics.

Yes, I got the full kit, 4 springs, 4 shocks, 4 bumpstops and a blue mesh that you wrap around the top half of the springs to prevent squeaks. The exact part for the kit is Ground force #9863.
I got my kit threw Amazon.com-automotive section. just type Ground force #9863 in the search box. I just did a search and they have 2 kits in stock for $639.21 +free shipping I think. Still a great deal compaired to most sites. I received mine in perfect shape with no delays.
Please keep us updated.

I have a 3rd gen, but my GF 2/4 kit has held up very well on my 4x4 and I've abused my truck regularly at the strip, auto cross (stupid Gatty got me hooked), and in my everyday driving on the horrible surfaces we call secondary roads out here. I highly recommend swapping to a better set of shocks, but it's not a requirement, but for me the swap was night/day with new shocks on the ride quality, but I run a 45 series tire on 22s.

What brand of shocks would be better for lowering? Maybe i will purchase the springs alone and shock someone where else..
