If you can get rears separately, both Eibach and Ground Force rear springs will lower the truck 1.6"

Their front springs will lower the front 1" - very easy install, and really looks good.

Considering Lowering Too

What brand springs do you have installed? I understand that Eibach claims that the ride is improved..... Hard to believe, but I want to know how much it changes with the spring swap and how it feels. I already know it looks great.

Thanks

Boosted I installed the ground force on the rear only. By doing this I got the ssr at a more level look. I still have a inch differance but it is not as noiticable. They also ride very nice.

Picture

I've attached a picture of mine with the Eibach rears installed. Still looking for a picture with the fronts.. Ride is more or less the same to a little better.

Ok - for some reason I can't seem to attach any pictures tonight. Will try again later.

So the front is still 1" loer than the rear? If so this is what I am wanting...

Slug,

I own an aftermarket sales and installation shop. It's an All Sales 6095PL, IIRC. It locks, which is a nice feature as people around here are stealing gas. About $90.

Boosted With the rear ground force springs I have exactly 29 5/16" at center of wheel. The front is stock and is 28 3/8". A differance of 15/16 if I did my math correctly. It does not have the jacked up look.

Ken,

Now that's what I call lowered! Hydraulics or air? Can you drive it like that or is it setting down when static. Did you have to C notch to get it that low? How is the ride? Also like the side pipes, do you have dual outlets on the other side too? That's the best looking SSR I've seen, congrats...

Thanks, it's air. No I can't drive it at that height the K member is on the ground. I can get it lower but I have to dig a hole under my car first. Yes the frame is c notched. I drive it 2" higher than it is, I think it rides very nice. I am pretty particular about that. The exhaust comes out only on the right side.
