Interesting that they said that it would work with Adaptive ride when all the ads I've seen says it won't, BUT, the spindles do not change the relationship of the upper control arm to the frame on the front, so it should not throw codes and be fine. As for the back, the shackles will change the position of the rear axle in relation to the frame, so I think there may be a need to change the length of the links or re-calibrate the control module. Thoughts?
I wondered about changing the location of the sensors. When I can get it up on a lift, I'll look into it. Thanks for the info on the lift kit! It makes sense then that a similar fix would work for lowering it.
I used BelTech drop spindles on the front and shackles on the rear. I think they see both as a kit now, but I got them separately on Ebay. Easy install with 22" wheels. Some smaller wheels require a thinner nut on the lower ball joint and you may need to trim the end of the ball joint stud for wheel clearance. The thinner nut is supplied with the spindles.
I had one of these installed on my lowered '19 High Country and it made a huge difference in body roll. I traded that truck for a '21 High Country 3.0 Diesel with Adaptive Ride Control and plan to install one on this truck as well. I am glad to see that it worked well on ARC trucks, too!
I'm new here and just tried to search for this topic, but didn't find anything so here goes. I just bought a 2021 High Country 1500 4wd with the 3.0 Duramax and Adaptive Ride control. I want to lower it 2" all around and the kits I've seen so far say will not fit with adaptive ride. Can anyone explain the issues of lowering a truck with ARC and what it might take to lower one? I had a 2019 High Country 6.2 4wd and lowered it as soon as I got it and really liked the look. A pic of the 2019 is below. Thanks
