Re: My lowered GC Limited diesel 2014

Great look! Do you have the spring part numbers you used? I've been looking for SRT8 springs everywhere, since never saw someone do this install in this forum, thought they wouldn't fit on standard wk2s.

Did you install 295 tires on 20x9 rims?

Yep those are 295's on the 20x9's. Thx to evolv0 here on the forum who provided all the input on this as well as the hancooks. Love these tires.

I don't have the parts numbers on the springs unfortunately as I bought them used from CLStech (another forum member) But they were SRT 2014 springs.

Re: My lowered GC Limited diesel 2014

Update:
After the install the alignment was a mess. After two trips to the shop that did it I decided to go to a specialist. He fixed it.

Drives straight as an arrow now. Anyone in Seattle area I highly recommend Truline...

The only bummer though was that he discovered grease all over one wheel. Looks like I am a victim of the CV joint issue... Back to the dealer!

Overall handling is worlds better!
Did you install yourself? Or have a shop do the work? If did your self how hard was the project? Thanks

Re: My lowered GC Limited diesel 2014

I had a shop do the work overall cost was approx. 1700

Non load leveling was 250 or so including the new upper mounts that were needed.


Since the install I've had a few issues. First my right cv joint went out, I assume this was a manufacturing issue as there was a bulletin issued on this. My front sway bar is rattling now. I believe this is a result of the shop who did the original install. The idiot neglected to tighten the sway bar enough and the nut came loose, it was re tightened a day later but I think the links have worn out as a result. Either way dealership is covering it...

Aside from that the truck handles worlds better. I am glad that I made the change...

Re: My lowered GC Limited diesel 2014

look great bro! i am still on the fence about doing the SRT springs.

On a scale of 1-10.... 10 being the most harsh. Where would you rate the new springs? I really don't want to stiffen up my ride much more than i have now. My ride now stock is about a 5-6.

thanks!

Sweet set up, looking to doing this as well. Mine is a 2WD Altitude with no tow package. So I imagine all i will need is the SRT8 Springs right? I imagine i have the non load leveling shocks correct?

That would be my assumption.
