When you think about lowering your Sport Truck or SUV, historically the most overlooked component is the shock absorbers, with many Sport Truck or SUV owners simply leaving the factory units installed as a "good enough" after thought. However, when you lower your Sport Truck or SUV, many of the components that you will use reduce the effective travel of the shock absorbers and can render your OEM shock absorbers virtually useless.
This results in not only poor ride quality & reduced driving enjoyment, but a large safety concern. The first time you need to perform an emergency maneuver like swerving to avoid a child, animal or another vehicle on the road, you will quickly find out that OEM isnt "good enough".
Excessive body roll and an incredible amount of front lean on braking, and rear dip on acceleration are all effects of a shock absorber (or more appropriately named damper) that is not working correctly as it is out of its element or operating range. You have effectively tied the dampers hands behind its back, not enabling it to do its job and control or dampen the movements of the suspension.
Belltechs parent company KW automotive is a world leader in shock absorber technology and is relied upon for their expertise in suspension tuning by some of the worlds most demanding OEM and Aftermarket companies such as the ACR Viper team at Chrysler, Mercedes AMG, and Novitec Ferrari.

Over 25 years ago a small company in Fresno, California had an idea to build the best performing lowering suspensions for the Chevrolet pickup. Belltechs success in the late 80s and 90s made it possible for the company to grow from a modest beginning, to a larger manufacturing facility with a satellite warehouse and finally in 2003 to the current 115,000+ sq. ft. operation located in Sanger, California. The Sanger facility has made it possible to expand every aspect of the operation. No matter what your lowered truck suspension needs are, Belltech is there with products to satisfy every desire.
