HOW CAN I GET REPLACEMENT PARTS?
Ground Control policy regarding the sale of replacement parts:
Ground Control Suspension Systems is a company that has dedicated all of its resources to creating a system of dampers, springs, machined aluminum, bearings etc. to work together in harmony. Ground Control is willing to sell the parts to restore or repair an original Ground Control Suspension System to its original configuration and intended use.
We do not sell any parts to repair or patch up kits sold by other companies. If you need parts or repair of a suspension manufactured by another company, we recommend you contact the manufacturer.
Ground Control also does not sell “half-kits”. Ground Control cannot sell just the front or rear system, because it is impossible to create a tuned suspension system when someone else has manufactured half of the parts to an unknown specification. This would be the same as selling a ”left side only” suspension to match something else on the right side.
Sales of replacement parts for Ground Control Suspension Systems are evaluated on an individual basis. Proof of purchase is required, and pictures, or the physical return of some parts may be necessary. Sometimes, it may even be less expensive to buy a complete new kit if many of the parts have been lost or hijacked.
WILL MY TIRES RUB AFTER INSTALLING YOUR KITS?
No, our kits are designed to exact specifications that will never make tires rub. If you are having problems with tires rubbing, it may be a worn-out or incompatible component.
