Since 1983 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. Shackle 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. As time went on more and more enthusiasts joined the Sport truck phenomenon. Soon Ford, Dodge and import truck owners wanted to join in on the look and style of Belltech equipped vehicles. This started a whole new market of truck owners that could now do something different and up to date for their brand of truck. Belltech designed and created suspension components for these applications as well and the company grew accordingly. With the suspension lowered there was one more factor that needed to be considered. We had to take a look at the suspension dampening system (the shocks). Stock shocks worked well with the stock suspension but by changing the ride height the shock geometry was affected. That's when the properly designed. Nitro Drop Shock line was designed. Constantly keeping up with the ever challenging Sport truck enthusiast Belltech took this program a step further with the introduction of the Nitro Active shock line using monotube technology to further improve ride quality. No matter what your lowered truck suspension needs are, Belltech is there with products to satisfy every desire. Belltech's success in the late 1980's and 1990'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 2015 to the current 75,000+ sq. ft. operation located in Clovis, California. The Clovis facility has made it possible to expand every aspect of the operation. Additional space for both Engineering and R & D are making it possible to create and develop new products more efficiently and timely. Some of the results relating to these new transformations are the development of new products for the GM Silverado and Colorado/ GMC Sierra and Canyon/ and the Ford F150. 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 systems for the street and the track, featuring exclusive Inox Stainless Steel Construction. LSD Doors-The world's only crash tested and approved Lambo Style Door systems Suspension Techniques-The leader of height adjustable coilovers, lowering coil springs, and anti-swaybars Since this time, Belltech has seen a large boost in its technology and engineering capabilities with the inclusion of KW Automotive GmbH's dynamic race proven suspension design & technologies including testing and tuning of complete vehicle dynamics on KW's own 7-post Dynamic Testing Rig. With the newer SUV's and trucks now coming equipped with independent front and sometimes rear suspensions Belltech has the exclusive expertise, experience and technology to handle any and all new suspension challenges in the future.
