Since 1983 small company in Fresno, California had an idea to build the ?best performing? lowering suspensions for the Chevrolet pickup. Fresno had been a haven for lowered vehicles and trucks were in abundance. Trucks were being lowered but their suspensions were terrible and not very roadworthy. Springs were either replaced with new ones not necessarily meant for the application and even worse they may be cut or heated with a torch at the local muffler shop to give the lowered stance that was cool. The stance looked good but the ride was terrible.
Belltech?s design staff had a better idea - Why not build a spindle where the wheels are higher but all of the rest of the front end geometry stays the same? In fact that?s just what they did and the drop spindle that launched the Sport truck craze in America was born.
To go along with the drop spindle the rest of the truck suspension needed to be addressed also. Shackle Hanger kits, Lowered Coil Springs and Flip kits soon followed. Keeping with the spirit of the ?best performing? suspension the Belltech staff designed and created these components using superior materials and designs. The result made Belltech the most asked for and successful truck suspension brand in the industry.
Belltech is considered the undisputed leader in sport truck suspension parts, offering high quality suspension parts that don't sacrifice ride quality for the lowered look you're seeking. Belltech offers a complete line of suspension components for domestic and import applications using superior design and materials. In addition to its now-famous drop spindles, Belltech manufactures its own coil-over kits, lowering springs, sway bars, shocks and struts, air spring kits, and more.
