Cadillac CTS 4 Doors 2003, Front and Rear Variant 1 Coilover Lowering Kit with 0.6"-1.8" Front and 1"-2.2" Rear Body Drop by Belltech®. Includes: Front Dampers, Front Coils, Rear Dampers, Rear Coils. Variation 1 coilovers take the worry and guesswork out of adjusting the damper settings when you drop the ride height because they have been optimally pre-set at the factory to achieve the best balance between sport handling, comfort, and safety – at any ride height.
- Set of 4 coilovers that achieve the best balance between sport handling, comfort, and safety
- Damper settings have been optimally pre-set by KW Engineers and are not adjustable
- Each coilover can be lowered individually by hand
- Shock absorbers are a twin-tube damping design formed of an inner tubular element within an outer tubular element
- Springs are constructed with a multi-level tempering process (annealing, shot blasting, jigging, UV-test, phosphate coating, EPS coating) for optimal durability
- Composite polyamide spring plates and ring nuts are light weight, corrosion-free, and effectively dampen vibrations and road noise
- Corrosion-resistant zinc-plated steel strut casing features dirt-resistant threads to ensure easy adjustment in all climates and dust levels
- Features a high-quality elastomer synthetic compression buffer/additional spring with integrated dust cap that protects against grit and the elements
- 100% street legal

- Manufactured in the United States
The wrong rebound and compression settings when a coilover’s shock absorber is lowered to certain heights can lead to an unnecessarily harsh ride, a reduced tire contact patch on the road, compromised grip, and the costly expense of accelerated tire wear. When wheels hop excessively from shocks that aren’t pressurized correctly for the ride or handling you want, you simply are not getting the full benefits adjustable coilovers offer. Belltech engineers have taken the time-consuming hassle of out getting your shock absorber settings just right once you’ve lowered or raised them with the Variation 1 Coilover Lowering Kit. It’s a set of 4 coilovers that achieve the best balance between sport handling, comfort, and safety – for every possible ride height. While damper settings have been optimally pre-set and are not adjustable, each coilover can be lowered individually by hand.
Variation 1 coilovers are a twin-tube damping design formed of an inner tube element within an outer tubular element. Coil springs are constructed with a multi-level tempering process that includes an annealing stage which heats the metal, then allows it to cool slowly in order to remove internal stresses and increase strength. Metal is then shot blasted to remove surface imperfections and coated with a durable outer finish to minimize vibrations and resist corrosion. Corrosion-resistant zinc-plated steel strut casings feature dirt-resistant threads to ensure easy adjustment in all climates and dust levels, and a high-quality elastomer synthetic compression buffer serves as an additional spring. An integrated dust cap ensures grit and the elements do not reach inner valve areas.
Founded in 1983 in Fresno, California, Belltech Suspensions began with a mission of filling a need that existed in the marketplace for quality lowering kits that provided full-size pickups with an aggressive stance AND a ride that wasn’t severely punishing. After developing state-of-the-art drop spindles, coil springs, and shackle hanger kits, word of mouth spread about the design, reliability, and smooth operation of their products – earning Belltech respect among demanding California custom builders and racers. The consistent high quality and cutting edge functionality of their lowering kits allowed them to grow in the marketplace, and the company expanded to their current location in neighboring Sanger, CA. Belltech merged with German-based KW Suspensions in 2005, and today draws on a wealth of engineering talent that has produced joint products with automotive manufacturers such as AMG, Roush, and Viper and been involved in world class racing series. CARiD is proud to offer best values on the full lineup of Belltech quality air springs, compressors, coilover sets, lowering kits, shock absorbers, anti-sway bars, lift kits, and alignment kits which prove that lowered style and ride comfort are not mutually exclusive.
