Belltech Leaf Springs By recalculating the arch of the leaf spring and compensating
with the appropriate spring rate through the latest manufacturing
techniques, Belltech’s leaf springs are designed to easily
lower the rear of your leaf spring equipped Sport Truck or SUV by
up to 4 inches depending on application.
All Belltech Leaf Springs are direct OEM replacements and
come complete with high quality OEM style bushings.
Over 25 years ago a 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. Shackles, 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's success in the late '80's and
'90's made it possible for the company to grow from a modest
beginning, to a larger manufacturing facility with a satellite
warehouse and finally in 2003 to the current 115,000+ sq. ft.
operation located in Sanger, California. The Sanger facility has
made it possible to expand every aspect of the operation. In early
2005 Belltech and its sister company Suspension Techniques joined
the team of KW automotive North America, Inc, the North American
arm of KW automotive GmbH, Germany. As part of KW automotive North
America, Inc Belltech continues its growth in product development
and technology advancement along with its three sibling companies:
