Cadillac Escalade, EXT and ESV Forum - 1999 - 2006 Discussion, MCGAUGHYS or GROUND FORCE? in Cadillac Escalade Forums; What is the difference between the two? price,ride, Looks
Plus any know a good shop in the ATL,ga to install ...
Ground Force uses torsion keys which makes the ride stiffer therefor causing a rough ride. The Mcgauhys kit is a drop spindle which just takes the stock hub and everything and moves it up 2 inches. This results in a stock like ride. I have owned both a ground force and a mcgaughys and I will never ever recomend a ground force to anyone. I am sure in places that have roads like glass the Ground Force is great but I live in pothole central.
I have a 2002 Escalade with the Ground Force and YES, the ride quality is crap.
I don't have any of the original/stock springs or parts so does anyone know if I need anything additional to change to the Mcgaughy suspension. Basically, if I purchase the Mcgaughy system, are there any "stock" pieces I need to "go back to"?
