Talking Dropped the 09 Ram in the front

I have owned the slt for a month and hated the tall stance. Adding a cap and tools for work dropped the back end down about 2" and I wanted to be able to get in without jumping up even though Iam 6' tall.

Ordered the Ground force kit and installed the front springs only to get the truck to sit straighter. Front fender is 36" from ground and the rear is 36.5" high, giving me a 1/2 rake to the front, Ill take it.

Had to align the camber (set to about 1/4 degree) and grabbed a tape to get the toe in set to about 1/8 - 1/4"which feels great on the road. So the truck has less of the high rider look that I find so offensive and Ill see if I have any milage increase.

Enjoy

Woody

Default Front drop 2"

Iam new here and can not pm or sell I have been told. This is different from my other 1000+++ posts on a crossfire forum. Ill try to get the photos up.

The cap on this new work truck weighted down the rear and I only needed to install the front half of the ground force kit I bought to get the truck level. I now can get in without getting a running start, Iam 6' and stock was too too high for me. Higher than my hemi durango for sure, well no more.

here is the photos if they load, enjoy, Woody
