    Product Details

    Dodge Ram 1997, Nitro Drop 2™ Shock Absorbers by Belltech®. This is hydraulic Nitro Drop 2™ shock absorber that is designed for optimal performance at a range of ride heights. Low-speed compression damping has been set to maintain OE factory ride comfort while improving vehicle stability and handling at all speeds during performance driving.


    • Hydraulic Nitro Drop 2™ shock absorber
    • Designed for optimal ride comfort at a range of ride heights
    • Shocks are approved for use on vehicles with or without autoride suspensions
    • Twin-Tube internal design
    • Aluminum-based piston rod with stainless steel body offers high strength and freedom from corrosion
    • Comes with rubber shock eye bushings
    • Shock may be fitted with a dust cover that's removable should clearance issues require it
    • 2-year manufacturer warranty on shock absorbers
    • Manufactured in the United States

    For the driver that wants a shock absorber that delivers OE ride comfort equally well at a number of lowered ride height configurations, Belltech offers Nitro Drop 2 Shocks. Whatever height you choose, Nitro Drop 2 Lowering shocks have been tuned with low-speed compression damping rates to deliver excellent ride comfort with a lower center of gravity for your vehicle, keeping ride and handling stable at all speeds. If your vehicle has an autoride type of self-adjusting suspension, these shocks are approved for use with such systems.

    Depending on vehicle applications, the shocks may be fitted with a dust cover that's removable should clearance issues on your specific make and model require it. Because Belltech believes products that do not last are not worth building, they take every effort to ensure these shock absorbers will maintain their integrity over a long period of use thanks to aluminum-based piston rods and stainless steel bodies that will never corrode. All components are built in the United States, and backed with a 2-year warranty against failure due to manufacturing defects.

    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. Our website 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.

    Amazing Shocks
    I put these on the back of my Silverado after lowering it and they are a great improvement over stock. Simple install and they work great. I wish I would have purchased these earlier because they improve the ride a lot.
