ok i have a 08 silverado cc and ive been doing the research looking into different drop setups, does this sound good?

belltech spindles/ struts
MCG 4/6 or 4/7 rear flip
i also want to add air bag helper kit

does anyone know a good site to get the belltech spindles & struts? for the MCG i saw there is a vendor on here, Tim, with good reviews all around.

For the front, belltech components are good. Contact NorcalSS, another vendor on here, he sells DJM stuff and now Belltech stuff as well. Spindle/strut Is a good setup for 4".


For the rear, get the Mcgaughys flip kit from Tim and the Mcgaughys helper bags from Tim as well.

I have 285 50 20s on a 4/6 drop and don't rub with stock LTZ wheels.

I can't say for the helper bags though.

You can run stock size 275/55/20's with a 4/7

check out www.stillen.com also for belltech parts, if you dont see it call for a price and get norcalss to match/beat it. I know they sell the struts for like $85ea with free shipping

Just FYI...if you cant get a decent price on the belltech spindles, these summit spindles are really ground force spindles http://www.summitracing.com/parts/SUM-G716/

thanks silveradodude74 and JB for the help, the 275/55/20 with a 4/7 looks good, i looked at the silverado cc you did a few weeks ago, i assume that is what he is running?

time to start ordering my parts....
