I have a set disassembled if anyone wants pics.

Here are some pics loaded with groundforce drop leafs and 2" drop shackles....Over 600 lbs in the bed and still 1.5" off the belltech bump stops which are a little longer than the pancake bump stops. Normally I have this one in the bed and another on the trailer with fuel and such. Been riding fine for 2 years.


Did you mean 2" drop shackles or 2" drop springs up front? I'm looking at this same kit (Ground Force 9861) for my 2014 rcsb... [MENTION=54962]02reaper[/MENTION]

Up front I have the belltech drop struts with no spacers and stock springs, out back I have the Groundforce drop leafs with a two inch drop shackle in the 1" drop setting...

Thanks for the clarification [MENTION=54962]02reaper[/MENTION]
Can you please tell me which drop kit or parts you had in this picture?

This is the stance I am going for on my truck and any guidance would help.

Same kit with recommended spacers in the front belltech drop struts for a 3" drop and in the rear just the ground force drop leafs without the drop shackle...
