Lowering Kit Builder Tool. The Easy Way to Build Your Lowering Kit

Our lowering selection tool for the 2014 to 2018 GMC & Chevy 1500 2wd. Each kit can be selected with or without either Belltech NitroDrop 2 shocks, or Belltech Street Performance shocks.

The Lowering Kit is available in the following configurations.

Leaving the front at factory height, you can drop the rear 2-inches with shackles.

You can lower the front by 2-inches with spindles, then drop the rear by 3 inches with shackles and removing the factory block.

To go down 3 inches on the front, use spindles and coils. Then drop the rear down 4 inches with a flip kit and raising shackles are used.

To lower the front by 4 inches use spindles and coils and drop the rear 6 inches with a flip kit.

Lowering the front by 5 inches with spindles and coils and the rear 7 inches is also accomplished with a flip kit.

Kit Notes:

    Lowering the rear 4 inches or more requires shorter shocks.
  • Replacement front struts are available on the GM Struts Page

As a general rule 2014 to 2016 GM Silverado/Sierra 1500 models could use any of the 3 styles of control arms and 2016 to 2018 models use aluminum control arms.

If your 2014 to 2018 Silverado or Sierra 1500 is a two-wheel drive, then you can lower it to your heart’s content. The front can be lowered with spindles, struts, coils or a combination for up to 5” of drop with no major concerns. Don’t forget to be sure and have a Belltech 4955 alignment kit on hand if you are dropping it more that 3 inches and using a set of 2511 drop spindles will also help with the alignment angles.

In the rear of your Silverado or Sierra 2wd you have options to go anywhere from a 2 inch drop all the way to a 7-inch drop and varying in one-inch increments between there. Lowering the rear more than 3 inches will require a set of shorter rear shocks.
