Ground Force is the Summit Racing brand product aswhile as their own. We've just install their 2" drop spindles and we wasn't happy at all.. :evillol: Next time we've going to stick to the big name brand components..

Ive also looked at Bell Tech and Eibach
Those are good brands to deal with others will chime in on other brands as well.. DJM is other good one.. Like I said Ground Force spindles are just made to weak and light weight compared to the belltech/DJM..

Im a little leary of Eibach myself. I delt with Bell Tech and DJM before without any problems but both had rode crappy. This avalanche has the best ride Ive ever had in a truck and Id like to keep it as smooth as possible. I also need a kit that can handle towing a boat.

i have installed ground force. was quite pleased with the kit.... they are the only kit that conversion companies will use. good warranties. they are owned by belltech BTW.

Word, its weird. DJM is considered the good stuff on GMs but shitty on Dodges like mine, while Ive heard alot of bad things about Ground Force for GM stuff, but its the only way to go for Dodges.

i had a ground force 3/5 kit and toxic shocks on my truck,i had absolutly no problems with it. i dont think there is anything wrong with the kit just cause it is not a major brand name. it was 3" coils up front and a 3" leaf spring/2" shackle in the back,im selling mine if u want it

forgot u have an avalanche,mine wont work sorry i wasnt paying attention
N/P Ive looked at the 3/5 kit but It keeps the full suspension travel and Im afraid my wheels would hit the fender. Plus I like the slight rake looked, maybe
a 3/4 or something. If I can still tow my boat without draggn the tounge.

Werd! I have a 3/5 not an avalanche but it's not completely level. It has a rake to it.
