Default lowered my r/t

Well it finally stopped raining every weekend so I got my lowering kit installed, as usual took twice as long as I thought it would. This is the ground force 2/3 kit. Very happy with it. Also tinted windows / rhino liner /
tonneau cover. Next up exhaust , cold air and tuner...
Here are some before and after pics.
Any market for the factory springs and shocks? only have 600 miles on them. I am open to offers.

A big HELLO and a warm Carolina Welcome! I'm glad to see the photos and they look great, nice job lowering the truck. There is a group here for lowered trucks, consider joining you can help others with questions on lowering their rides. While you're out there drop by the Newbie Checkin to introduce yourself.

Sweet truck! How was the install? I'm thinking about just getting the Ground Force 2 inch rear drop kit to lever my truck. How does it ride now? Post more pics of the rear and full side please, THANKS!

I did the rear on one saturday and the front the next saturday.
The rear is definitely easier although you do have to drill holes in the frame
to relocate sway bar. The instructions are very good, just make sure you
have all the tools you need before starting. The only thing I would be concerned about is if you do just the rear then you have mis-matched shock and spring rates compared to the front. The full kit has 4 shocks and
4 springs. The ride is a little stiffer of course and it handles better. Ironically the tire pressure has a bigger effect on ride - I had the front end
aligned after this and they pumped the tires up to 50 psi and it was really
harsh ride. Dropped the air down to 42 psi and suits me fine. Here are more
pics. The first 2 are before pics

Great looking truck. The drop looks good.
I think these R/T trucks look killer.

Looks really good man. I'm getting ready to order my lowering kit from Belltech they came out with a 2/4 drop and they also have a heavy duty rear sway bar to replace the tiny one it has from factory.
