Before you spend your hard earned bucks on custom suspension you need to feel comfortable with what your doing and how you are doing it! In the Tech section we have a ton of information to help you make an informed decision. Installation tips, FAQ (frequently asked questions), and a bunch of magazine articles. Spend some time looking around and don’t forget - the question you have, may be answered in one of the other sections. For example is a huge issue with lowering kits please spend some time there to really know how to choose the proper kit for you. Also refer to the section to help you understand the benefits beyond just style. You can make your truck or suv look bitchin, and handle like a sports car with careful selection of a suspension kit, alignment, shocks, ground effects, and wheels and tires. And don’t forget ride quality! You have to drive it, your friends have to ride in it, why not make the ride as good as possible. See how different parts impact ride in the section of the web site. If your interested in a restoration by all means consult the section. This is now the most popular trend in the truck lowering world. There are a lot of very cool old/becoming new designs rolling out of garages and shops and there is no reason that the next one can’t be yours!

So carry on with your project, and here are some of the questions most frequently asked:

Q: I’ve spent the money, did the work, and now my truck is low on the drivers side?

Q: Why does the suspension squeak like a stuck pig when I drive?

Q: Can I use a drop spindle and a control arm at the same time?

A: No

Q: How long/hard is my kit to install?

A: This depends entirely on your experience and equipment available to you. You should have good heavy duty jack stands, hydraulic floor jacks and some wrenching experience as a minimum to work on suspension. A lift is a really big plus, and seriously, if your not comfortable with this type of work, use a professional installer.

Q: Before I lowered my truck it drove down the road smooth as silk. Now, after I installed the lowering kit I get vibrations, why?

DJM Drop Spindles

It accomplishes the purpose of additional lowering but you lose suspension travel (which reduces ride quality), lowered coils have a higher spring rate, and you usually need to replace your shock absorber with a shorter one And all of this costs more. The wheel bearings and brake rotors are mounted to the axle, and the spindle also locates the brake caliper and tie rod end.Steering knuckles are found on some late model trucks.


CALMAX Control Arms

Because CALMAX Control Arms are made with very specific purposes in mind, we design arms to work with factory springs and build CALMAX Control Arms to work with engineered lowering coils. This is done by moving the spring perch down and the lower ball joint (which attaches in the spindle) up relative to each other and the frame.
