2005 titan le tow package 20" rims 285/50 tires. Belltech package 438sp 2/4package was bought first. It comes with the lowering struts, rear leafs w/flip kit, rear shocks(all shocks and struts are their Performance stuff). 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.
