Default 2012 Rear leveling kit needed...(1500 2WD)

Is Ground Force the only company to make rear only lowering springs? I cant seem to find anyone else. Also, are Lowering shocks needed for the rear after the drop. (GF has them included with their springs). Just curious if there are any other options out there.

otto-max (IIRC) has a kit for the rear, and maybe 1 or 2 other companies. Shocks are not needed for 2" or less drop.

I dropped my rear 1" with stock shocks.

I installed the 2" otto-max kit fall of 2011, levelled the truck perfectly! With almost 40k kms since installation there have been no problems!

That looks great! How much was the kit, where did you get it, did you do it yourself, or have it done?
If someone did it for you, how much did it cost?

Thanks, it was about $400? (springs and shocks) shipped from a truck store in BC canada and i installed it myself in about 30 mins. Super easy to install, the hardest part was wedging my arm under the fender liner to get the top shock bolt in and out.

Shocks aren't necessary for a 2" drop.
