Default Found..09 rear lowering coils

I found some 2" rear coils for 09-10 Rams. It's the GroundForce kit 91213 and it comes with shocks.

There is just one catch...they list this kit for reg cab short beds. I wonder how a c/c short bed would sit with this springs???

I plan on calling them tomorrow and talking to a tech.

Update #1.

Talked to a tech at Ground Force today and they are hoping to release the 2" rear (coils/shocks) lowering kits for the quadcab and crewcab by the end of the year. He said that that Dodge uses different coils on all three cab configurations. Makes sense to me for the std cab but I didn't know there was that much differnce in the q/c and c/c.

Oh really... Wonder what the difference is. And if the regular cab coils would lower the quad cab, or if the quad cab coils would lift a regular cab...

I've decided to wait for the crewcab Groundforce kit so with that being said I have a set of 2009 coils (front and rear), rear shocks and bumpstops for sale. The only thing is that the rear coils have exactly 1 coil cut off. I posted the ad in the for sale section...$150.

2 inches according to the 2 guys that have already done it. The threads are in this section. I will find them when I get home if someone else doesn't post a link first.
