    02 escalade awd, 24's 3" ground force drop. Turning the front wheels will cause a yawning sound when you turn too far, other than that, it looks a lot better and can make turns a lot safer, without worrying about tipping.

    awd shouldnt go lower than 2"-2.5" in the front, cv angles get to be too much....

    I have no idea what you mean lol. I just know that I've had my drop since i bought my truck, which is about 2 years, and it still runs great, the ride isnt too great but thats because of the wheels, i had my stocks on and it rode like a dream...
