Ground Control Suspension Systems ?

These guys' kits come highly recommended by some folks around these parts.

I have definitely thought about them. But I have to achieve at least 2.5" drop. I don't think they are designed for that low.

C3 uses eibach race springs...the race division..same stuff as ground control..with adjustable perches....not eibach sport springs :P

Im not a giant fan of the C3 kit but it works...id rather make my own with better pieces...but Ground Control or C3 are the way to go...

actually pro kit is sport springs, only way to get their race springs is through a retailer and they are to be used with adjusters as they are 2.5" ID springs

Pro Kit = sport springs

I'm just running the Bilstein BTS kit no rear spring pads and hucked the bilstein shocks/struts and put in some proper koni yellows

yeah i have no idea how these would look with a proper 15"-16". i'll look to see if i have a decent pic w/ the 17's.

OK it don't really show inthe pic, nut i run about a 1.5 gap above the tread.
