Belltech 2/4 Drop Installed...
 
7 Attachment(s)
So I installed my Belltech 963SP lowering kit. It took me just under 4 hours. No need for spring compressors. I will tell you that taking the rear fender liners out will assist you with the rear top shock mount bolt. That was the only obstacle with the install. Pretty straight forward. The truck rides great and the lowering components are top notch. This is how the truck should have looked and handled from the factory in my opinion! :head3:

I'm more of a lifted fan, but that looks good man! how much did the lowering kit set you back?

$420 shipped from Summit, $100 alignment with 3 year warranty and bought my buddy a big steak dinner for helping me get it done :smileup:

That looks awesome I would love to drop mine but I wonder what it would do to my towing setup... things that make u go HMM... :4-dontknow:

I own a boat so I'll tell you how it tows by next weekend. lol

I have about 2.5"-3" of travel between axle and rear bump stops. A tongue weight under 250-300 lbs shouldn't be an issue.

Looks Great, I have the same truck in the same color. I'm looking on doing mine in the next few months. Is it only spring and shock kit, no spindles? Could you give us an updated measurments from ground to center wheel wells. Thanks

Looks super good!! I have a mineral gray Sport Crew that I put the same kit under last week. I decided that I would add the Air Lift 1000 bags to the rear. I don't think I have more than 2" to the bump stops in the rear on mine and I'm a little concerned about pulling my trailer. Did you measure before and after? I got 3.5" drop on the rear and 1.5" on the front.

What are you planning next?

Just compared the photos between your side shot and mine and I'd say that mine is lower in the back. I assume it's the extra weight of the crew vs the quad??? Really interested in your measurements if you have them.
