Founded in Fresno, California in the early 1980s, Belltech built their reputation on performance-oriented coil springs, shock absorbers, and drop spindles that lowered the ride height of full-size pickup trucks. Cutting edge component design shattered the belief which had existed until then that riding low and handling better meant settling for go-kart levels of noise, vibration, and harshness. As the consistent high quality and cutting edge functionality of Belltech products proved that lowered style and ride comfort are not mutually exclusive, their customer base grew exponentially. The consistent high quality and cutting edge functionality of their lowering kits allowed them to expand and merge with German-based KW Suspensions in 2005. You will find, as our customers do in their reviews, that Belltech lowering kits provide sophisticated ride comfort, long-lasting reliability, and OEM quality fit while delivering the handling improvements you expect after dropping your suspension.
For those interested in the best vehicle handling and performance with manual height adjustability, Belltech offers a series of three coilover lowering kits that replace factory shocks and springs. For the simplest operation, choose Variant 1 coilovers with damper settings pre-set to achieve optimum levels of sporty handling, comfort, and safety at all ride heights. Variant 2 coilovers add infinite adjustment of shock rebound damper rates to regulate vehicle pitch and roll behavior for ride comfort, and Variant 3 coilovers further add compression rate adjustability for regulation of driving dynamics. For the pickup truck owner who wishes to lower their vehicle in the front without giving up ride comfort or handling, Belltech also offers the Inox Coilover Lowering kit series.

When it comes to shock absorbers, Belltech offers great value with Nitro Drop and Street Performance lines. Both come with ˝” inch spring spacers, and both are designed to perform at a number of lowered ride height configurations. The Street Performance Lift and Lowering Shock Set is biased towards more aggressive handling, and is set to work at a range of ride heights from 2 inches above to 2 inches below stock. Because Street Performance shock absorbers are biased to handle heavier loads and aggressive driving, they’re a great choice for big tires or big rims. For the driver that prefers a shock absorber that maximizes ride comfort, Belltech’s Nitro Drop 2 Shocks deliver a smooth ride and stability at a range of heights from 2 to 5 inches below stock. Both Nitro Drop and Street Performance shocks are also available tuned to match factory OEM ride height without any drop or lift.
For those seeking a moderate amount of ride height drop without performing complex suspension redos or adjustments, Belltech offers the Drop Ball Joint kit, Drop Spindle kit, Rear Aluminum Lowering Block kit, and the Rear Shackle kit – all of which lower your vehicle 2 inches. For those seeking more than 2 inches of drop, replacement coil and leaf springs are available along with replacement hangers, 4” rear shackles, and a Flip Kit which relocates your leaf spring mounting point from above the axle to below it. If you appreciate the ability to adjust your ride height, front and rear Pro Lowering Kits come with easily removable spacer pieces that can surround the coil springs. If your vehicle has torsion bars, the Front Lowering Kit comes with torsion keys that can be adjusted to three positions should you prefer to change the amount of ride height drop.
Seeking to further enhance your truck’s handling to a sharper, crisper level and reduce body roll? Belltech offers anti-sway bars that help you achieve those drivability gains without the added expense and labor of replacing springs and shock absorbers. Each anti-sway bar is solid steel in order to ensure a higher level of yield strength that will maintain its integrity over a lifetime of extreme use. Whether your vehicle’s suspension is stock or you have lowered the ride height, the performance benefit of Belltech anti-sway bars will be significant once installed. Resilient polyurethane bushings are included that resist compression better than rubber in heavy-duty use – keeping your vehicle planted on the ground when you need it most.
Belltech also offers alignment kits that restore front wheel camber and driveline components to proper operating angles after your vehicle is lowered. Here, you’ll find spacer blocks (Driveline Alignment Kit), spacer shims (Pinion Shim Kit), and track bar relocator brackets (Track Bar Relocater Kit) that reposition your rear axle so that it sits in proper alignment with the center transfer case and/or transmission. Recommended with 2 or more inches of ride height change, the Front End Alignment Kit restores wheels from an excessive inward tilt at the top to a more upright position for better grip, handling, and safety under any driving condition.

The track bar relocator is the part that was missing in the early Ram lowering kits from Belltech. It is a must have part for lowered Rams. It's easy to install and takes all the sway out of the rear of lowered Rams when traveling down a bumpy road. I love my truck again.

The kit came complete, well packaged, and with instructions. Though installation is fairly straightforward, the instructions looked to be comprehensive enough for anyone to figure it out. I am impressed with the way the truck handles now!
