Your SUV or pickup truck was designed to provide good handling with a comfortable ride. Manufacturers set vehicle ride heights as a compromise to please the majority of their customers who want a more commanding view of the road and better snow clearance. For the driver that wants to slam their ride lower without being slammed in the back with a harsh ride, Belltech offers this Lowering Kit that provides an uncompromising balance between looks and performance. As a result, your ride height is dropped 1, 2, or 3 inches in the front as you choose. Because these torsion keys do it without altering the tension in the torsion bar, you get the aggressive stance without a deterioration in ride quality.
The kit gives you the choice of lowering your truck evenly front and rear, or staggering the front slightly higher to offset any improper downward rake it originally left the factory with. Once installed, the reduced ride height lowers your vehicle's center of gravity which, in turn, reduces body roll and any tendencies to lean over. The result is more stable handling at any speed and reduced understeer where high mass pushes the front of your vehicle sideways.
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.
