Default ground force 2/3 installed

Installed the ground force 2/3 kit on my '11 R/T this weekend.
Really pleased with it . Here is a before and after pic.
If anyone is interested in the stock springs and shocks they only
have 800 miles on them...

Now that looks much better with those sweet 22's!

I put the Ground Force 2/3 kit on my RCSB 4x4.

It took more time than I expected to install. I did the rear one saturday which leveled it out and the front the next saturday. Took me about 6 hours each time, although some of that was lunch and phone calls and surprised neighbors stopping by wondering why I was tearing apart a brand new truck... My advice is read the instructions carefully, they are very good. Make sure you have all the tools needed before you start. Make sure you get a front end alignment after install
it definitely will need it

My Bro' works at a BodyShop so we got in early on a Saturday morning.
With a fully equipped shop, hoist and air tools at our disposal we rocked the install in just a little over 2 hours.



We also had to use the shop Strut Tamer to swap the front Coils
4x4 front end is a little different and reuses the stock strut, just replaces the coil.


I posted more pic's in my photo thread here:
http://www.ramforumz.com/showthread.php?t=65939
(install pics are on page 4) and I have more if anyone needs details

Awesome Kit! , Fantastic Handling with the new Progressive Rate Coils....corners like a sports car now with minimal body roll.

Any particular reason you went with Ground Force instead of a Belltech or McGaughy's? I'm waiting for my reg cab short bed and plan on a mild drop for it. It'll have 20"s wheels instead of the 22" hoops and while waiting since I'm unfamiliar with the quality of the various aftermarket kits, trying to get a handle on the consensus from the forum knowledge base as to who makes quality stuff and what stuff to steer clear of.
