The 2" lowering kit is on but I have not had a chance to get some pictures yet. It looks really good and handles alot better. I took my truck to a buddies 4x4 shop to get it installed. He let me put it on a lift and use his air tools to get it done. It took about an hour to install. Now I am just waiting on the spyder headlights and hid kit. They were on backorder and just shipped today. Has anyone seen R/T 22's for sale anywhere??

Cool. What'd you do for shocks? I heard the shocks the kit comes with need shimmed to fit properly and some others have just used the stock shocks. Also have heard that it only gives a 1" drop unlike the 2" drop advertised. Just wondering if they've fixed the issues they had?

I used the shocks that came with the kit, everything fit good with not problems. And It did give the full 2" drop, it looks just like dodgert's.

There really isnt many more things that I want to do to the exterior of the truck, I have all of the R/T parts and now the Spyder headlights. I am debating whether the truck will look good with smoked taillights and black R/T 22's or should I laeave them polished?

Looks good but is it just me or is the rear lower than the front now?

Yes the rear does sit 1/4" lower, I noticed it when I was done installing the kit. I called ground force and they said that there should have been 1/4" spacers in the box but there wasn't. They mailed a set overnight and I will be getting them put on. Hopefully that fixes the problem. The spacers were not listed on the instructions.

dodgert did you have this same problem with your kit?
