How low are you looking to go?

I'm pretty sure Ground Force's 2/3 is the only 4x4 Drop Kit available for 4G 4x4's

That's the one I put on my RC/SB absolutely no issues with the 4WD at all.

It's not much lower in the front only about a 1-1/2" , mostly leveled the rear down 3-1/2" and firmed up the ride.
I really like the handling of the new progressive springs, great for cornering. The wider 305 Grappler's sure help too after getting rid of my Good-for-a-Year's.


before/after pic's








I did the install with a fully equipped shop at my disposal,
good thing too because the front coilover struts need some special equipment (for Reg Cab kit)
CC/QC's just have springs/shocks up front so it's a simple DIY





If I could get away with it, I'd slam my Ram (my photoshop chop) but we do have snow 5 or 6 months a year so that's not possible.

Shop around, I've seen the Reg Cab 4x4 kit (9983) for around $800

http://www.jegs.com/i/Ground+Force/476/9983/10002/-1

The Quad Cab (9984) is even cheaper $700 , not sure why?

http://www.autopartsdealer.com/groun...-p57124-p.html


It sits another 3" lower when I put my 27" Drag Tires on for Track Days

This is the cheapest lowering kit I know of:

http://kalecoauto.com/index.php?main...products_id=11

You also should check you blinker fluid level and muffler bearings before visiting this site.

Sorry, but no. I just couldn't help myself when I came across that site and remembered your post about lowering kits.
