Default GF drop coils

So I put ground force 2/4 drop on my 2006 4x4 this weekend and the back dropped nicely but the front coils only gave me about 3/4-1" drop? Not sure how much these things settle but right now they I'm definitely not happy with the front of my truck being higher than the back.

Give them a few days.. The fronts have a larger load on them so they quiet stiff out of the box. They should settle some more. Just curios, did you make sure the springs got seated correctly? Might need to make sure they stayed located when you put the spindle back together. Just a thought

Wow, ok so I think I figured it out. On top of the coils and strut assembly is there a rubber piece about 2" thick that mounts on top? I'm thinking that the person before me had a leveling kit on it and that leveling kit is still on? OMG!! That's such a newb mistake. Anyone changed coils or put on a levelIng kit what's the top of the strut metal or rubber?

I only had the rubber ring that the spring sits into, but no rubber "blocks". I'm willing to bet who ever had it before you installed a level lift.

You were right blue, there was a day star levelIng kit on it. Took it off and now it sits perfectly. Went to get the alignment done and found out now I gotta replace upper ball joints and tierod ends.
