Just installed some new mods this weekend and wanted to share pics with the members. Added the Ground Force 1.3/3 suspension lowering kit and picked up some Dropstar 20" Wheels wrapped in Pirelli 275/45/20 tires. I bought the inserts on the wheels used and the color doesn't exactly match until the end of this week, close enough for now. :woohoo:

I bought the Ground Force 1.3"/3" lowering springs from Jegs, 219.00 plus shipping came to 247.00, came overnight too. Kit was very easy to install, did it myself in about 1 hour with the lift and the proper tools. I am really impressed with the look and the way she rides. I was going to go with the Belltech 2/3 drop but i found evidence and pics that it will really mess with allignment, ball joints, and cv's. The Ground Force Kit came out to be the best without serious mods and i love the appearance. Thanks for the :thumbsup:

yea i was checkin out the beltech as well and noticed some of the posts that it messes the alignment up in the rear and need to get a panhard bar. and yours def looks good and glad its workin so far. but i must say if you don't use the roof rack, remove it... i took mine off last week and it looks so much better.

Looks good. I have some Ground force springs waiting to go in when i get back from school. How is the ride quality with the stock shocks?

And is it just me or does the front sitting too high? Looks a little uneven.

:thx I reused the stock struts and shocks. I am ok with that for now. Was a very easy job with the right tools and a lift, got a buddy who has a giant garage and am very thankful for that. I will be upgrading the shocks and struts with the nitro equipment as soon and i get some more cash flow.....

:thx I did reuse the stock struts and shocks and am ok with the ride quality. I have alot of what they call "bump steer" but i was told that its because i have not had it alligned yet, (will be done the end of this week). As far as the front looking like it is a little higher that the back, i have gotten that from a few of my buddies but on even ground and measured, all is good. I do have the a$$ end loaded down with alot of stereo equipment and in the near future, i will be looking into some anti-sag methods because of the weight and i do tow a rather large boat.....

Does your rear axle sit to one side or is it not as bad as people say it is?
Well, i didn't notice anything by just looking at it with the naked eye. I never really got down and measured it but i can tell you that if it is, it is not noticable at all. From a few posts that i read, with the Ground Force Kit, there hasn't been too much of a problem with that....
