The correct part # is 61741 for the belltech rear springs, ordered yesterday will update after install. Do not order the off the shelf kit for the oem springs.
Sounds good - let us know how it goes, it will be great to have another opinion.

Easy install and work as advertised so far. Only downfall I can see is when running their minimum 5psi unloaded pressure, truck sets quite a bit higher in the rear. After installing the drop kit the rear end of truck is out of wack.

Pictures? What does out of wack mean? Does it look more like a 2-3 kit????

Yea, I guess you could say that (2/3 kit). Was hoping it would be the best of both worlds, support the weight and look right. Have to compromise at this point, pictures soon.

Does it ride good? That's my big concern and I would think the extra inch in the rear would allow a trailer to be pulled without issues.

Id like to know what "The rear is out of wack" means too.
Sounds scary. Lol

Does it ride as well with the helpers installed? It sounds like you're not extremely happy with them. Maybe if you let a bit of air out instead of running the recommended 5 PSI it would sit better....

I think i'm going to order the Bell Tech kit this week, probably go with the Street Performance Shocks.

Sorry about jacking this thread but at least we are still on line with "Bell Tech" specifics.... I am also ready to order my kit but need to know the ride and why is sits like it does. There is another post on here about the back being to high but I thought it looked great. The MG kit from my understanding of posts on here leaves the back sitting a hair low and and I need the travel room but like the feedback on ride quality. I just want a good quality kit that rides as good, or bad depending on what you drove before, as the factory ride.

Ride quality is very good, all I am trying to say is they raise the rear ride height about an inch at lowest recommended air pressure. Air lift says air bags can be damaged (pinched) if you run less than 5psi so that is what I have been running.

LOL.... I am sorry for the mistake. I was to concerned about the Belltech kit to understand you were talking about the helpers. Good to know it rides nice and I hope you end up getting the look you want with the helpers. Thanks for all the information.
