I own a 04 envoy 4wd and can only find the ground force springs that will drop it 1.3 in front and 3 in back. Does anyone know of any other kits available that will drop it lower keeping my 4wd? Will the belltech with nitro shocks (2/3) work?

Yes

Be prepared to have higher cost with a bigger drop, you will also need DJM upper control arms for the front with the 2" drop springs.

Lots of people get a panhard bar for the back, but thats your call.

2wd or 4wd the belltech kit is the same, but the DJM 2/4 kit will not work because it is for 2wd only.

See my gallery/profile to see a Belltech 2/3 drop with DJM upper control arms and a spohn panhard bar sitting on 22's its a 4wd truck.

sweet thanks dude i think im gonna stick with the complete kit belltech has believe part number is bel170 2/3 drop with shocks....now ur saying im going to need the djm upper control arms. The kit doesn't include them? From the way it looks the front won't be bad just the back trying to get factory rivets out....

I am not sure you understand. The belltech kit comes with,
Front 2" drop coils
Rear 3" drop coils
Nitro Drop 2 rear shocks.

Now you need the DJM because when you lower the truck, the upper ball joint gets so kinked that it can just snap and on if that isnt bad enough you most likely be able to get the truck aligned within spec.

The DJM uppers not only straiten out the balljoint angle they are a bit longer and that makes the alignment go flawless.

Now as far as rivets I have no idea what your talking about, you just have to take the shocks off and the "sway bar" and then lower the axle with jack stand under the frame the factory springs will come out and you set the new ones in there.

The kit 140 from belltech is what you need, it will include the springs and shocks.

The link to the classified section is what you need to look at for a pic of the actual product.

For a side note
belltech 140 is 4wd
belltech 141 is 2wd

To my knowledge DJM is the only arm maker. I know what you mean now about rivets and yea that is not the case with this install. I had the longest time geting the springs off the front strut and getting the A-arm bolts out then I did the whole rear.
