Belltech's Rear Shackle & Hanger Kits are designed to lower the rear of your truck up to 4" while maintaining a factory ride quality.
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: KW Suspensions - The world leader in height and dampening adjustable coilover suspension.
