Best Lowering Kit for GM Silverado or Sierra 1500 2019-2022

2021 Chevy Silverado Lowered

If you're in the market to lower your 2019-2022 Chevrolet Silverado or GMC Sierra 1500, then boy are you in the right place. We've got a ton of different options for you to take your GM down to the right spot. But before you buy anything, take a moment to ask yourself a few questions first.

How low do I want to go?

This is where you start. Period. Do you want a mild drop on your ride? Or are you looking to go as low as possible without having to install airbags? That's going to be your first step, because what you buy is going to determine how low you will go.

Let's start with the basics. Say you want to lower the truck 2 inches overall. This here BellTech kit will suit you nicely, and it's affordably priced. It includes shackles and spindles — that's it. But you don't need anything else to get you down where you want to go.

That 2/2 will get your truck sitting exactly where it does at stock height, but two inches lower. But did you ever notice that the rear of your truck is technically higher than the front? Sure is, and to sort that out, you need to lower the rear more than the front. The first place to start is with a 2/4 lowering kit, like this one from Maxtrac. It's got spindles, a flip kit and shocks (with shock extenders) to sit your truck down a decent 2/4. Want to go lower? They offer this 3/5 drop kit, too. People say that an inch doesn't matter, but you know better, don't you?

Do I want to cut the frame?

This is where the rubber meets the pavement, because this is a tough decision. Lowering your truck with bolt-on parts is pretty straightforward. And if your truck is leased or you plan on trading it in, you can swap all that stuff out later for the stock goodies. But if you want to go lower, you have to install a c-notch to give your axle extra travel, which means you have to cut the frame. The dealership wouldn't be too happy to discover that one.

Now that doesn't bother us here at the shop, and it might not bother you, either. And if that's the case, check out this BellTech 2-4/6 kit, or the McGaughys 4/6 Deluxe. Both will get your truck down to the right height, and give you a frame notch in the process. They're both solid setups that perform well, and will give your truck the stance you want.

The rest is up to you.

Now that you have all of this information in hand, the decision is yours to make. Just figure out how low you want to go and if you want to cut the frame. From there, give us a call or simply order online. Remember, we're here for you if you need us.
