If so, what's your opinion? They're very expensive. Even their entry level "Pace" lift is over $1500, and that's for a 2.5" lift. Looks like very high-end stuff.

I would like to go to their shop and look at some trucks up close. I called them and they were very informative and courteous on the phone. I believe they are in your area (760) area code. I have plans in S.D. in two weeks I'm going to check it out!

They don't allow shop tours. I spoke with Kent Kroeker yesterday and he said their facility is on their family's private ranch which is only 20 minutes north of me. I wanted to see some of their trucks too. He did tell me that we could coordinate our schedules and I could test drive one of them when he's coiming down south.

Actually, these are specifically for Dodge Ram 2500/3500's. I had an opportunity to check out a fully equipped 2500 with the Chase system installed. Very impressive. It seemed to ride pretty nice too, depending on how you set it up (shock selection, tire selection, etc.). If you go with the Pace (with Bilstein 5100's), steering stabilizer (a Fox unit), and install (about a 6 hour job to do right, from what I'm told), the OTD cost will be right at about $2800 - $3000.

I'd order and install the Pace myself if I had a garage :mad: .

Kore also guarantees their components for life.

I really want one, just not sure how to get it past the Mrs.

Not so, they are totally dedicated to the Ram 2500/3500 4x4 and baja racing, but their lifts are very much for the everyday driver that likes to go 4 wheelin.

I Have it.

I Love it.

Can't go wrong with it.

Talk with Sage at Carli suspension - 714-273-0278. He is a reseller and can give some slight discounts. He helped Kent Kroeker (the K in KORE) in the development in the kits over the last 2 years. VERY good guy !!!

Im looking for just the KORE coil springs because I already have bilstein 5100's up front (the springs are the same in each setup, chase, pace etc) I emailed desert racing concepts llc (desertracingconcepts.net) and they said for just the springs alone: $550. For the complete 2" front leveling kit: $880, this includes the new coil springs, longer bump stops and two bilstein 5100's.

if anybody has aftermarket 2" higher superlift or KORE coil springs for an 03+ Ram 2500 - let me know!! I cant afford $550 right now!

Hey mike, How does the truck feel on the street and highway? From the testimonials on the KORE web page the guys who are running these kits are claiming a improvement in smoothness and cornering over factory components. I do not speculate the toughness of the stuff, I am just wondering how the stuff feels day to day.

Good call pegasus. I'd like to know myself. Too many websites are simply using smoke screens and mirrors, yet for some reason if it's a product that I'm truly interested in, I kinda want to believe it.

Very nice ride. Feels like a truck, not a 1970's caddillac !!! $550 for the front springs is full on retail. Call Sage at Carli Suspension. Tell him mike sent you. He'll give a discount. I did the same you did. I already have the 5100's so I bought the kit minus shocks.

something to realize with the aftermarket coils... Dodge has different spring rates for left and right (passenger side is heavier on the CTD). KORE is the ONLY guys out there that carry that over to the aftermarket. I have a set of Skyjacker 2" coils that I took off for the KORE if someone wants them. But what they and others do is take the higher of the 2 spring rates (passenger side) and make both that stiff.

If you are in the DFW area, feel free to swing by. We can meet up and you can see/feel for yourself.

Mike: I may be interested in those coils you have, although I would need to have them shipped to PA. How much are you looking to get? I need to replace my RevTek spacers ASAP and im waiting to see if RevTek will work with me on replacement coils since I had two sets of their spacers with the same problems.

You would never mistake how my truck rides for a cadillac, no way.

No smoke and mirrors with our stuff. Kore products are tested in Baja and developed for racing. We have been under these trucks for hundreds of hours to produce the best stuff possible. Go to our websites and take a look. If you don't believe what you see. Come on up for a ride and a burger. Bring your diapers kiddies. 80 MPH through big whoops gets a little hairy at times. Usually before you go BIG! Bring a helmet too!!!!

I asked Kent if I could come up for a tour of KORE but that was a no-go. I'd like to check out actual trucks with the equipment installed. May have to take you up on the burger. I'll be sure and bring my TLD helmet.

Greg,
How well does your system control the rear wheel shimmy over joints in the road and pot holes? When I hit them, I feel as tho my truck wants to kick around - I see on your site that there may be added leaves in the rear leaf pack - are they mearly the lift (as in dead leaves) or do they serve a purpose. I know the rear of my 2500 feels as though it got its hands on some viagra - its very stiff. I know its like that for towing, but for racing and whatnot... it would seem to me it would help to be a bit softer? I was just curious on how you combated that issue. - Thanks

Oh and one more thing - post some more pics of the cutie at the boarder stop!

Greg,
Welcome to DodgeTalk first off. Second, please don't refer to KORE's stuff as "our stuff". You are a reseller. Please don't lead the DodgeTalk community in to believe the untrue.

Yes, you are a reseller, yes you have installed many of them. But you referring to KORE as yours is like me referring to Windows as mine because I know a ton about it and work with it every day.

Oddly enough, KORE has had very limited exposure here. Not like the TDR. Others can and will appreciate your ability to discount the kit as a reseller, just please don't misinform. This is not meant to be hurtful in any way, just lets make sure that everyone can see each others cards ...

For the record, the kit was designed by 2 guys (Kent and Victor) with a company called TREX. They had a falling out and Kent (of KORE) redesigned the upper shock mount and remarked the kit as KORE. Is it a good kit ? Yep.

The coils are made specifically for KORE, as are the mini-paks. The coils are made by Coil Spring Specialties and the mini-paks by Deaver, so it is qulity stuff. The original testing and development also included a 3rd member that is a competitor of Greg's (no need to get funky).

So, that is KORE's kit in a nutshell. His shocks are specifically valved for his springs.
