Belltech Suspension Lowering Kit Selection Tool

Our lowering selection tool for the 1999 to 2006 GMC & Chevy 1500 2WD Regular Cab Short Box. Each kit can be selected with or without either Belltech NitroDrop 2 shocks, or Belltech Street Performance shocks.

Time to upgrade your 1999, 2000,2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005 or 2006 GMC / Chevy 1500 2WD regular cab by lowering it with a Belltech kit.

The Lowering Kit is available in the following configurations.

From factory height, the rear can be dropped by 2-inches with shackles.

To lower 2-inches on the front, use spindles, and shackles to lower the rear by 2-inches.

The Economy 2/4 kit uses coils to lower the front by 2-inches and shackles and hangers to bring the rear down 4-inches.

Our Deluxe 2/4 kit uses spindles to bring the front down 2-inches and shackles and hangers to drop the rear 4-inches.

 To lower the front by 4-inches, both spindles and coils are used, and the rear can be dropped 6-inches with a c-section and flip kit.

The 5-inch front drop uses spindles and coils, and to get the rear down 7-inches, we need to use a c-section, flip kit and shackles.

Kit Notes:

  • If using spindles you must use at least a 17" wheel
  • Lowering the rear over 4 inches requires shorter shocks

If you have a 1999 to 2006 Silverado or Sierra 1500 two-wheel drive truck, then we have options to slam it to the ground if you want. There are a few suspension variations on these years, but we have them covered. This series uses a typical upper / lower control arm setup with a coil spring but there was an optional front torsion bar suspension on the 2005 and 2006 model years. I’ve never seen one of these trucks, but they do exist, so we ask you the question of which front suspension your truck has just to make sure you get the correct parts. You can lower the front on all the trucks with a set of spindles and then increase the drop with a set of coil springs (or just use the coils if you’re on a budget) If your truck does have the optional torsion bar front suspension then instead of a set of coils you can use a set of re-indexed torsion bar keys.

The rear drop will be achieved a set of shackles for 2 inches, shackles and hangers for 4 inches or a flip kit for 6 or 7 inches of drop. The only difference in the rear drop is if you are using a flip kit. The frame width on the 1999 to 2000 trucks is different than the 2001 to 2006 trucks so the flip kit differs in that the c-section is different.
