      Lower Your Center of Gravity. If you are tired of that ugly gap between your truck’s wheel and fender or you simply want to lower your center of gravity, now is the time to do it. The Belltech Stage 3 +1 in. to - 3 in. Front / 5.5 in. Rear Lowering Kit w/ Street Performance Shocks can make the process a breeze and you will receive a +1 to -3-inch lift or drop in the front of your truck and a 5.5-inch drop in the rear. You will find that this kit fights back against lag in acceleration and that nose-dive experience when you have to hit the brakes hard. This kit also helps your truck’s body move seamlessly to prevent a rollover when you take corners too sharply. Your overall handling and performance in your F-150 will be improved and you will feel more in control of what your truck does. All of the components in this kit are made from premium stainless steel and aluminum for strength.

      Performance F-150 Shocks. The Belltech Stage 3 +1 in. to - 3 in. Front / 5.5 in. Rear Lowering Kit comes with performance street shocks that will allow you to enjoy your ride on the road whether smooth or bumpy. Since you are lowering your center of gravity, you need to know that your truck can handle even the smallest bumps without making you uncomfortable inside the cabin. This kit will ensure that happens.

      Three-Hour Installation Time. When it comes to installation, the Belltech Stage 3 +1 in. to - 3 in. Front / 5.5 in. Rear Lowering Kit w/ Street Performance Shocks is easy to install, but it is important that you take the time to read all of the cautions and warnings because lowering a truck can be quite dangerous. This kit comes with all of the hardware needed for a proper install and you can expect the entire process to take about three hours.

      Application. This Belltech Stage 3 Lowering Kit with Street Performance Shocks is designed to fit all 2009 to 2013 2WD F-150s with the following cab and bed sizes. Regular Cab with a 6.5 ft. Bed. SuperCab with a 5.5 ft. Bed. SuperCrew with a 5.5 ft. Bed.

        Good lowering kit

        Good kit. Pretty simple to install. Only thing is on my truck it lowered the rear just a little more than the front. Also the rear axle flip causes very little travel from rear end to frame bump stops. I added air bag helpers for the rear and solved the problem of bottoming out. Great ride. Overall good kit for the price.

        Amazing kit

        Great kit if you want to lower your truck. Rides smooth only thing is not sure how much weight I can carry in the back of my truck if any at all but all in all gotta give a little to get a lot. Definitely a head turner and conversation piece

        Looks Great! Rides Great!

        I would suggest having an extra hand in the garage, as this is not a 1 person job unless you have a lift and pneumatic tools. The instructions and install were pretty straight forward, just a lot of work to do in 1 weekend. I highly suggest purchasing a camber bolt kit in order to align the front-end properly, as well as pinion shims. Rule of thumb, you'll want 1* of angle for every inch you lower your ride, otherwise you will find that the driveshaft will vibrate in certain scenarios (specifically 2-piece driveshafts). Overall, the look and feel of the ride have dramatically improved IMO. Handling is great, steering is tight, and the ride quality is smoother than stock.

        My beltech kit installed easy! And the ride quality is just like stock since I opted for this kit that re uses the factory springs.

        Excellent Quality kit!!

        This lowering kit comes with everything you need to lower your truck and give it a nice look for the street. The parts are top quality and the detailed directions make install easy. I was worried about ride quality being affected by installing this kit but i can honestly say that i think it actually rides better now than it did when it was stock, the struts and shocks are EXCELLENT!

      Will this kit fit the 2014 model? Taking a look on Belltech's website there is a different model number for the 14'.

      • This kit will not fit the 2014 models due to Ford changing up the suspensions a little in this year. We do apologize but we would not carry any lowering kits from Belltech on our site.
