Great job - it really looks nice.

It's funny. Some truck owners are going for the low ride while others are trying to get every inch of height possible. I actually think both look great and have their place, depending on the truck model and other mods. I think this truck looks sweet with its lower stance. I also think some of the 2500/3500s with the higher stance look BA.

Had to modify a 7/8 wrench to get the left rear top shock nut out that was a pain but other than that the directions were easy took me about 5 hrs.

Tonight I think I’ll remove her crutches on the side!
What do you think of your drop? I love mine and it is a Belltech as well! Any rubbing? What do you think of your ride? Nice mods...reps to you! As for anyone looking to do Belltech, you are far better off CALLING Summit to ensure the correct part numbers and kit as we had that problem (Incorrect kit).

BEL-963SP is Summits part number with shocks 963SP is belltech's part number and I took the picture so it could be seen, I have not driven the truck this weekend as I want to take it in to get aligned this week.

Default Rear shocks are wrong for my truck

So my truck sounds like a stagecoach in the rear, I have talked to belltech and am getting summit involved.
The first thing is the rear ride is nasty, it always bounces off the frame bump stops.(came in kit)
Stock shocks are 14mm ID
Belltech are a large 15mm ID
Stock bolts are small 13.5 mm OD so you can see the issue it has almost 4mm of slop and sounds like more.
Belltech says no one else has this issue, Is that true that I have odd shock bolt size?
