Belltech’s very first product was produced for a GM vehicle back in 1983. Since then it’s been a staple of our foundation here, and every year Belltech continues to work alongside this great American company. Aside from the G10 & G20, Belltech has mirrored it’s vehicle suspension application offering with GM’s dating back to 1963 for its 1500 vehicles.
First to market for both the C-Notch and spindle, the C10 has a very special place in every truck lovers heart. Most of our kits for the C10 truck consist of drop spindles, hangers, shackles, flip kits, C-notch, and of course the famous Belltech dampers.
This truck will always scream BELLTECH, with its timeless style, and bulletproof drive train you can expect this truck to be around for many years to come. Most of our hard parts have not changed in design since its early release back in 1988. This truck is now almost considered a “classic” in this day and age, so if you see one for a good price, buy it and install our product immediately. Oh, and don’t forget the Super-CNotch still available on a built to order basis.
In 2007, we were introduced to the strut style front ends for all half ton GM truck and SUV’s. Belltech’s response to this development was an adjustable strut, with easy to set height ranges. Even though others have released their own solutions our Belltech strut is still vastly preferred over all because of our state of the art foot and rebound valve technology.
Belltech Sport Trucks recently developed a new suspension set up for late model Dodge, GM and Ford. This new lowering package contains sway bars, lowering kit (where applicable) and four full-adjustable shock absorbers. The driving behavior can individually be adjusted to the preferences of the driver using the dampers that are independently adjustable in rebound and compression.
The twintube shocks features the same adjustable damper technology like the well-known worldwide KW Variant 3 coilover shocks. With this separate adjustability it is possible to select a stiffer or more comfortable suspension setup on demand. The rebound damping is adjustable with 16 clicks and allows the driver to directly take influence on the handling and the driving comfort. By increasing the rebound forces, the body movements are reduced. With the compression damping, adjustable in twelve clicks, the traction of the tires can be increased and the handling can further be influenced. For our dampers, pre-configured high speed compression valves are also used. The great advantage of this is comes when driving over large cross joints or speed bumps, the bypass channels in the dampers are opened and the piston rod can immerse. Put simply, the wheel deflects when driving over a bump and at high speeds; the tires do not lose ground traction. By using this blow-off-characteristics from the KW valves technology, driving becomes even safer.
In addition, the Belltech Sport Truck shocks give every customer the ability to lower their late model trucks to improve the sporty ride quality of the vehicle, we also suggest installing our rear sway bar when its available. Reduce body roll and increase stiffness by connecting the opposite wheels of a truck using a steel torsion spring (sway bar). The bar greatly improves road handling during rapid load changes and hard cornering by reducing the load difference between the inside and outside wheels during the corner so the handling also improves.
