It was completely expected, but the latest incarnation of the Chevrolet fullsize pickup is hugely successful. It's hard to walk around a show nowadays without tripping over a rocker-laying new-body style Silverado, and there's nothing wrong with that. Lowering these trucks though, is a different story. For the first time in over 50 years, Chevrolet is running a coilover assembly up front, making drop kits a bit more complicated than they were in the past.
Of course, the aftermarket came to the rescue, and drop kits are now out on the open market. When the owner of this particular '09 Silverado wanted to drop his truck, he wanted to go as low as possible without cutting into the bed floor, and the answer was this 4/7 drop kit by McGaughy's Suspension. The setup includes drop spindles, a bolt-in C-notch, flip kit, and coils, all of which dropped the truck down in just a few hours of work.
To get fast shipping and a low price on our McGaughy's drop kit, we called Stylin' Trucks and had the kit in our hands in just a few days. Stylin' carries more than just accessories and performance products, they also carry a full line of suspension components as well. To make taking photos of the install easier, we went to Lowboy Motorsports, located in Mesa, Arizona, to handle the install, but this kit can easily be installed with basic hand tools in your own garage.
Check out how we quickly dropped our Chevy and if your Silverado needs a new altitude adjustment, give McGaughy's and Stylin' a call.
