Belltech Suspension and Wilwood Brakes

I have to admit this is the week I have been waiting for since I sprained my ankle getting out of the truck. Ya it's okay you can laugh.

Our truck features a Belltech complete 5/8 lowering kit, Wilwood braking system, Airlift helper bags with a WirelessOne system finished up with a Viair air management system.

Here is the list of components from Belltech we used to get the 5/8 drop.
  • 2" Drop Spindles Part# 2511
  • 2" Lowering Springs Part#12464
  • Camber Bushings & Cam Plates Part#4957
  • Lowering Struts Part#25003
  • Front 1 3/8" Diameter Sway Bar Part#5407
  • 7" Flip Kit Part#6522
  • 1" Shackle Part#6700
  • C-Notch Kit Part#TBA
Belltech's new 2" drop spindle Part#2511 (More info coming soon!)

Bigger sway bar Part#5407

Belltech kept it classic with their notch design for this truck. More info coming soon!

Stopping power is always a huge plus. The rear of our truck came with a drum. Luckily the guy's over at Wilwood had a solution to get us running a 6 piston front and 4 piston rear system. To achieve the 4 piston rear system we had to purchase GM Part# 19178787 (x2) and GM Part# 15012506 (x4).
