2/3 Check List


Recommended Posts

Getting ready to pull the trigger and drop the VHO. Was thinking Belltech 2508 spindles and 5952 springs, but now considering rear hangers and shackles. Which rear hanger/shackle kit from Belltech, looking at 6515 3" kit. Is this the correct one? Looking for input.

if you wanna go the cheap/easy route go hangers.. You'll get axle hop though if you get up in the HP..



IMO rear leafs are the correct way to lower the rear.. -3 belltechs here and I love them.

I have the shackel and spindle kit. Not as low as i wanted and got a weird shimmy @ 70 + while accelerating. I even used 2 degree wedges. I think i am switching to the leafs.



If you only did 2" shackles in the rear you are not supposed to use any shimss

I had this same question, and after reading through 56 pages on lowering I was more confused than ever. I had asked YTTAF (who's truck looks perfect to me) about what he used and he was nice enough to repond to me. This is the list he gave me.


Belltech 2/3 drop, spindles/leafs.

Front spindle P/N 2508 (sold in pairs)

Rear leaf P/N 5952 (buy 2)

Rear sway bar i'd go with the Addco #631, & use energy suspension endlinks #9.8124R and bushings #9.5161R for rear bar.

Stock front bar w/ Energy Suspension endlinks #9.8121R and bushings #9.5172R.


I had asked about the rear sway bar and Energy Suspension end links and bushings, that's why they are included.


Hope this helps someone else.
