305/50R20 Nitto Terra Grapplers

...about a half inch lower, and 1.5" wider than stock 275/60 Good-for-a-Years ..but 100% better ride.
(I freaking HATE those GY HP's had them on my 04' QC 4x4 too)

About the biggest tire you can run on a stock 20"x 9" Chrome wheel without spacers and without rubbing the upper A arm ball joints on a 4G 4x4.



next to my Mickey Thompson Drag Radials (295/45R17's) just before heading to the track for street legal drags

I've got a 2/4 drop on my '07 4x4, and while it IS a 3rd gen, a common issue with dropping ANY 4x4 is increased wear on the ball joints. You will go through them faster, so I reccommend upgrading them to some aftermarket ones, I'm running the MOOG greasable ones and they seem to hold up better. I would go as low as BRH wants to as well... if we didn't have to deal with the same damnable winters!

Just install my 9984 ground force lowering kit on my 2010 ram 1500 crew cab 4x4, now i am hear some noises comming from the drivers side spring when i hit a decent crack in the pavement. sounds like the coil is loose inbetween the frame and the axle. Can anyone think of what it could be???

A friend of mine has checked the content of the 9984 lowering kit from Ground Force and he said that everything is included to align the wheels and axle gear of the 4x4.

Is that correct and if yes, there won't be any problems after install for the 4x4?
(to avoid breaking or damaging something)

Tx 4 any kind of help with this...
