if your not towing the kit is a good idea. if you do tow and still want to be level get a hellwig rear over load springs to help keep you level. I have my 2500 2.5 leveling kit in front. ended up getting the over loads to keep it level during towing or hauling wieght in the bed.

Great info, Michael!

James, it really depends on what you want to do with it. If you want to put some bigger tires on the beast, I would say level the front to accommodate the added rubber. If you're gonna stay with stock size tires, then I would lower the rear.

Keep us updated on what you decide and post up pics when you git 'er done!!!

I'm thinking about the Ground Force 91213 - Ground Force Rear Lowering/Leveling Kits to drop the rear of my short bed regular cab 2wd little ram 1500. I don't tow and I will charge the bed rarely.
Can someone say if the ride will be smooth like the original coil spring?
It is a good idea to get an air bag in the coil spring to stay level with heavy load?
thanks

I have a complaint about them J.
I ordered that kit,and one spring sagged about 2" more then the other spring,finally ripped them out and replaced with the cut orginals.
Phoned Ground Force about them,they've never got back to me,so i'm not a fan of their products.
Any decent outfit returns phone calls when they say they'll return them.
My experiences with them haven't been great

Wow, never hear anything like that about them before, we have sent probably 50+ of them out last year and everyone seemed to love them, I apologize for your bad experience with them I am sure it is one of those 1 off things, but I do agree you should have at least got a phone call back, and a replacement coil IMO.

Thanks

Personally i think i ended up with 2 differant springs,but tagged with the same part number.
I think one spring might have been a 4" drop spring,and the other a 2" drop,as that's the way they measured out.
They had me take the springs out and measure the springs on a concrete floor.
They took the part numbers from me,and said they'd phone back in a couple days,that was over 6 months ago,have never heard back from them to this day.
It kinda perturbed me about the no call back,that's for sure.

Hey I do not blame you at all I would not be very happy about no call back after 6 months, have you tried reaching out to them again? I know sometimes we forget to return calls, but we always try to make things right, and I really have never had a problem when working with Ground Force, normally I get a call back within a couple days and if I don't I just reach out to them again, only couple issues I have ever had with them was shipping, or missing parts and they were pretty quick to fix it.

Thanks
Jeremiah

My problem is the time change between myself and them,it's hard to get home in time to phone them.
I usually have to shut things down early to offset the 2 hour time differance, i'll have to do that sooner or later again by the looks of it.
