Belltech Street Performance Shock Set 1999-2006 Chevy/GMC Silverado/Sierra 1500 5-7" Drop
For Vehicles w/ 4-6" or 5-7" Drop
When you think about lowering your Sport Truck or SUV, historically the most overlooked component is the shock absorbers, with many Sport Truck or SUV owners simply leaving the factory units installed as a “good enough” afterthought.
However, when you lower your Sport Truck or SUV, many of the components that you will use reduce the effective travel of the shock absorbers and can render your OEM shock absorbers virtually useless. This results in not only poor ride quality & reduced driving enjoyment but also a large safety concern. The first time you need to perform an emergency maneuver like swerving to avoid a child, animal, or another vehicle on the road, you will quickly find out exactly what we mean.
Excessive body roll and an incredible amount of front lean on braking, and rear dip on acceleration are all effects of a shock absorber (or more appropriately named damper) that is not working correctly as it is out of its element or operating range. You have effectively tied the damper's hands behind its back, not enabling it to do its job and control or dampen the movements of the suspension.
