well fortunately you can use any kit you want to just do the rear from ground force to bell-tech, but if your gonna do the front Ground force is the only place that makes a 4x4 lowering kit for front and rear

If your just looking to drop the rear and dont do any towing you can cut 1.5 coils off your rear sprigs. I and a few others have done this and it works just great. My fenders all sit withing 1/4" of eachother ground to top of wheel well and it looks awesome

I am having the ground force 2" rear drop kit installed tomorrow.

Took some before pics this evening and I'll shoot some after and post the results here.

P.S. I found the kit in stock at autoplicity.com.
Everyone else was just ordering from the manufacturer and the lead time was 6 weeks.

Here are the before/after pics...



After











I don't know if the overall pictures do the drop justice, the change in stance is very noticeable. No more looking into the huge void space above my rear tires.

It even feels different while driving.

It went from 38-3/8" to 36-3/4" (bad angle on after pic) so I shaved 1-5/8". Might gain another 1/8" when it settles.

The front wheel wells are at 36-1/8", so I'm ~1/2" from perfect level.

The spacer pads are about 5 times thicker than stock and the ride is ALOT smoother. This is with the Ground Force kit.
