Dude. LMAO! Funny thing is as I was writing it I started thinking the same thing.. that it sounded like one of those letters to penthouse or hustler. I could write some good ones after living in vegas for over 15 years now.. However, it wouldn't help the "keep my kids off the pole" campaign I run at my house at all.. if they ever read one of my stories.

Re: This is what a Belltech lowering kit looks and rides like...

Don't buy the Radflo coilovers from PRG.....unless you want to remove and have them rebuilt every year! Greg talks a big game on the phone. His "street" setup has been nothing but headaches for me, and he is NO help after the sale.

Buy a McGaugheys kit and some Bilstein's if you want a reliable setup.

He swaps out the spring for 2WD street/lowered vehicles. But if you call him after the seals fail he says there is only one spring that fits that shock.

Talking Re: This is what a Belltech lowering kit looks and rides like...

Well despite my emails with greg along with my contact info and voicemail left I still haven't heard back from him. Not being able to consult with him after buying some radflo's like we talked about would suck. I hope all is well with the guy?

In the meantime I just spent some more money on brand new 2004-2007 4x4 coil springs that should be here this friday. I plan to install the new 4x4 springs with my belltech struts at the stock height position. Then remove one leaf in the rear and still use the new belltech shocks I have in the rear. Surely this may raise the front front stock height by 1/2" depending on how much the new springs sag with 100lbs more of spring rate as compared to the 2wd ones I have setting on my shelf. I am hoping to get the truck close to level and better feeling in the front...
If it fails maybe billsteins added and just F it and start going in a different direction and that direction may be UP As you may know a lot has been written about the 08 4x4 springs(not the proX) and bilstein set up but it raises the front of course. 08 4x4= taller spring 04-07 4x4= same 2wd height.

Thanks for all the input here man.. I will let everyone know.

You may want to check out Max at Bio Kustoms. I'm pretty sure he has built a few sets of spindles for the Titan.

Re: This is what a Belltech lowering kit looks and rides like...

Thank's for the info! I am interested in seeing how it rides with the 4x4 spring's, that just might do the trick.

I lowered my truck thinking I would get better handling by dropping the center of gravity and hey belltech claims the shocks and struts are for performance soooo. I also bought the belltech front anti sway bar.
IN MY OPINION, the front lowering struts stamped 2007 did this even on the highway. High speeds were out of the question and my dads old 70's buick century(probably weighed as much as the titan) handled better at over 100mph. Belltech then sold me the 2" lowering springs at regular price and sent me some new 2010 stamped front struts and I was told to run those at the stock height to correct the crappy ride. I was set to do the coil and strut swap that weekend and when I got the package they only sent one strut. The follow week the next day air the other strut.
The springs help the boating of the frontend a lot but not enough in my opinion to call any part of this mod performance. It is all looks and the ride inside was ok to now where I am sick of it. I am 34 1/8" at the rear and 32 1/4" and thought like the other lowering kits the idea was to get the truck even. I have emailed belltech with no replies on that subject. It appears you would need the shackles to even the truck out front to back. Belltech has two different answers as to why they don't make the front lowering spindles, one is there is not a market for it and the other was that the titan design was flawed or to troublesome to design the spindle.
Belltech also will remind you that you are driving a lowered truck when you call and ask why is the ride so crappy. This to me is a bs excuse. Its the same thing you here about lift kits that arn't done right. If I had the money to make a kit for all titans there is no way I could ride in my truck and say, "yep this is a good as my company can get this, now lets sell it as is". I made a big mistake and have contacted Greg at PRG to help me get what I am looking for (a sporttruck suspension/highway use, high speeds etc.) I could have saved a lot of time and money if I had just called greg first. As soon as I can it looks like radflo coilovers for the front, custom bilsteins for the back with a leaf removed(stock leafs) and a prg shackle, rear anti sway bar. I may even get rid of my anti sway bar for the front. Maybe the belltech shocks on the back will work until I can afford the billsteins? So after hours of work and money spent I have a cool looking Titan that everyone seems to love but I dread riding in everyday.
That is a sexy ride. Thanks for sharing.

the exhaust was custom 3" Y behind the B pipes to a flowmaster super44 muffler and out the side in front of the rear wheel, the tip was one you can usually purchase at a muffler shop and have welded nicely to swoop up along the body.. It was awesome and sounded like a damn nascar in the pits or a dragster firing up. Currently, it's just dumped over the axle because I thought the sound, though amazing, was going to ruin my kids hearing as they rode in the back often. The black air dam is a Nissan Armada airdam you can order online or from a dealer. Its not to expensive and fits perfect.

Re: This is what a Belltech lowering kit looks and rides like...

OMG it's been so long I was reading my own post you quoted and wondering who is this dude? I ended up putting bilsteins front and back and left the 4x4 coil springs and rear shackles on; removed the belltech front anti-sway bar only because with the stiffer coil springs it felt like rigid overkill. The stock anti sway bar and the 4x4 springs seem to work well enough for me today. It leveled the truck perfectly IMO. The rear belltech shocks ended up leaking, though the company replaced them. I then had a front strut fail so that's when I said F' it I am going with Bilsteins and called it a day.
