Nooooo.... Is right. I bought a white RT and there was some confusion before I picked it up and someone else delivered it to their customer. It had all the options I wanted including NO step bars. So a hunt started to find another RT and realized they were getting hard to find. I found this one a couple hours away and they dealer traded for it with the factory installed step bars. My wife liked them while it was a factory hight so I left them until it was lowered. The picture with them was the day after I lowered it. They were removed shortly after... LOL!

Here's mine with the ground force 2" drop, make sure there are 1/4" spacers in the box because mine is sitting a 1/4" or so lower then the front at the moment.

dodgert I noticed in your picture that you are using the original shocks, why is that? Also did you need the 1/4" spacers?

Well first because they were a mother f er to get to the top bolt lol but i did put the groundforce on them after those pics cut a wrench and removed the wheel wells and the top bolt came out easy. And what is this spacer you speak of my kit did not have it nor did the instructions say anything about it

Rember the sport and the rt have a different suspension the r/t is a little more beefier i belive i could be wrong and mine sits perfect with no spacers.

I just called ground force and I told them that the rear sits lower then the front now. They said that they have a 1/4" spacer that they can send to me. I should have it on Monday and I will get it put on. Have you measured to see if yours is sitting lower in the rear after the kit was installed?

I have a friend who works at our local dealership with an R/T and we had them both on the lift and the shocks and springs were the same. Other then the torque converter and the 4.10 gears they aren't that much different. He bought the same kit but hasn't installed it yet. Hopefully the spacers fix mine.
