I have the BellTech kit and love it!!! 400 bucks with 4 new shocks

Look into an adjustable trac-bar and modifying the factor sway bar links for a complete job!

Have you considered a 2 inch rear drop kit? IMO those look the best, you can even cut a coil or so from the rea springs to get the look. One of these days I'm gonna get the kit or cut the springs. How far is mountain view from Sacramento?

Don't cut the springs i mean you can but you really better know what your doing i just did the 2'' rear drop and i love it got springs and shocks and if you ask me it rides way better then stock hooks up better to.And as far as doing the front yourself you'll need spring compressor so unless you have a shop id say let a pro do it that way the will adjust your sway bars and if need be realign it for ya.

I'm looking for 2 - 4 drop, Mountain House is right next to Tracy. Little over an hour to Sac.

Yup looking more and more like Belltech is the hot setup.

The ride is a little better than the stock ride. the kit comes with new springs, bump kit and all accesseries needed for lowering.

Hey Morparzule's: I'm right next door in Livermore and have the GroundForce 2/3 on my Crewcab. I love it, looks assume, rides great, NO regrets. More expencive than the other kits but installed myself with no problems. It was the perfect size drop for my tastes. Your welcome to check it out in person if you want. just shoot me a PM.
