From the Driver Seat
Thankfully, lowering a '99-'06 Silverado/Sierra is a straightforward affair and a walk in the park for Mouse's Kustom Fab crew. Belltech is the leader in lowering trucks for a reason-their stuff works and it fits. The real crown jewel in the install was the Street and Performance shocks that help retain a quality ride, yet also provide good damping for spirited driving. The wheels and tires really made this truck a head turner. Be on the lookout for future tech articles where we'll show you how this base-model truck was transformed into a SEMA show feature vehicle.
