    a 3/5 drop and 24s would probably be too much. i believe you'll get at least some rubbing with a 2/3 drop, so a 3/5 would be a lot worse. if you want that much drop, get air bags.

    Re: Mc Gaughys drop?

    I just had my Ground Force drop kit removed and replaced with the McGaughys 2/3" kit. The ride is MUCH IMPROVED and now is softer more like the stock Escalade rode. The Ground Force 2/3" drop kit (torsion keys in front and springs in back) made the Escalade ride like crap.

    My only problem now is that the McGaughys kit does make the front ride even lower (by about an inch) than the Ground Force so I get rubbing inside the fendor well even when hitting small bumps in the road.

    I get a little bit of rubbing when turning sharp in the parking lots but the fact that the tire can travel right up into the fendor well worries me--hitting a bump at high speed (50mph +) sounds like it'll tear up something when they hit the fendor well.

    Any suggestions or experience on this from anyone.
