The front can be lowered by 2 inches with spindles and the rear lowered by 2 inches with shackles.

The Deluxe 2/4 lowering kit will drop the front by 2 inches with spindles and the rear 4 inches with shackles and hangers.

To go down 4 inches in the front, spindles and coils are the parts you’re looking for, and 6 inches in the rear with a flip kit.

The 5 inch front drop, 7 inch rear drop, is accomplished with spindles, coils and a flip kit with shackles.

  • If using spindles you must use at least a 17" wheel
  • The Rear 4 inch lowering kit does not fit trucks with a 5.5 ft bed
  • Lowering the rear over 4 inches requires shorter shocks

1999 to 2006 GMC & Chevy 1500 2WD Extended Cab Short Box Lowering Kit By Belltech

The suspension in these trucks was only slightly changed from the previous generation. But the change was significant enough that the 2WD and 4WD now used the same knuckles. That's because the hub now is removable. You can lower them with a coil if it's a 2WD. Although I have personally never seen one, there are apparently some 2005-06 model 2WD trucks that also use torsion bars instead of coils, same as the SUV's. The rear is still a leaf setup meaning you can use a shackle for 2 inches, shackle / hanger combo for 4 inches, or flip kit for 5 to 7 inches. But when they introduces the crew cab with 5.5 ft box option for some reason they decided that they could no longer rivet the hanger to the frame and that they need to weld it on. I should also mention that the long box trucks now use a different hanger than the short box trucks.
