Talking Ground Force 4x4 lowering kit installed!

There should be one pix in my vBGarage file (testing to see if it downloaded before trying more). Measurements are from the ground to the arch of the wheel well...
:front end before, 36 1/2" :front end after, 35 1/2"
:rear end before, 39" :rear end after, 35 3/4"
Although the #'s are a little different (less) than advertised, I'm pleased because it is practically level, there is only a 1/4" dif now.
I'm sure there are guys out there that feel I'm crazy for lowering a 4X4...lol. Here are my reasons... this truck was special ordered without the tow package and has yet to carry a load in it's bed...I do not off road at all and don't need the extra clearance but love the traction(this is my 4th 4X4) ... could see no practical reason to level it by going higher and needing to buy bigger tires, less gas mileage... a higher step up (unfortunately my girlfriends are in my age group, haha) ... higher CG... I only had 2 or 3 " of roof clearance getting into my garage and had to shovel to make sure I didn't hit... and lastly I hoped the 'roll' would be reduced on cornering.
Well you can forget all the above reasons, the improvement in handling characteristics is amazing! The ride is tight, much less roll, under steer, nose doesn't drop drastically on hard breaking, etc... and it doesn't ride like a Caddy (Lincoln?) now. Love it!...guess you can tell by my rambling. As long as I stay naturally aspired, I shouldn't need to upgrade the suspension any further.
