I ordered the McGaughys 2" drop kit and once I received it I was made aware that this kit would not lower the rear to a full 2" drop on the Regular Cabs. I can't "lower" due to being in construction and constantly having to pop curbs and minor truck things so I planned on leveling the rear with the front. Is my only option the Ground Force kit or cut the rear springs?

I'll trade you mine. I bought some from a guy who had a regular cab short bed. Mines a cc6.5' bed and it drops mine to far. Not sure the brand just know they're gray powder coated. I have a level right side and a 1" sag on driver side. They said it's from the fuel tank but it's the same empty or full.

I returned them cause I was not getting an answer from anyone.

You just need the mcgaughys springs. They cost me $201 shipped to my door.

I put a set of these McGaughy 2" springs in my 2014 RCSB and they where too low, rear was lower than the front, looked stupid. Took them out and sold them and cut 1 coil off my stock springs put them back in and it's level.

I've been running the McGaughy springs for a year now and love it.

Seems to be mixed reviews on rcsb. Some guys say they get 1" others say 1.5"

I've got the mcgaughy 2 inchbrear springs, 44055 on my truck, driver side is perfect, but passenger side is about 3/4 inch higher. I assumed it was due to more weight o.n the drivers side due to the gas tank, but looking at the red ram above being dead nuts even on both sides, I'd say go with the kit he has.

I think I am going to order the Ground Force 2" rear drop kit when I am ready to level the truck off, which should be soon. Hopefully in the next month.

Just got the email back from Groundforce yesterday. Very fast reply. They also send directions as I asked about the install. Great customer service.
I may be ordering in the very near future. After that, I need a either a new muffler or full cat back system. Stock is way too quiet. Like driving a Lexus. LOL :roflsquared: I was just thinking of swapping out the stock muffler for the Spintech 9000. Sounds like it has the most balls, in my opinion. The full cat back systems from Borla and Corsa are pretty good as well.

Here is the lowering kit for the 2016 Ram Sport 4X4, regular cab:

I've got a black widow widowmaker, finally heard it yesterday to quote him it sounds like a racecar and scared the people at Dollar general. My 7 year old nephew says it sounds good, but is disgustingly loud.

My 2013 with Ground Force 2" rear drop. Perfect fit and maintained the ride.
I am in the process of duplicating on my '16.

Did you run their shocks or retain stock shocks

Did you have any issues with alignment after the front install?

No, actually alignment was pretty straightforward. It's only a 1" spring, so nothing is too far out of whack.
