Coil overs, are they worth it?

Recommended Posts

Today I installed Belltech 2212FF shocks out back and I am loving the difference in handling! Whoever owned this truck before me definitely installed some type of leveling kit, as there isn’t as much rake as there would’ve been as a stock Silverado. Out back the handling was a little bumpy, but with the new 2212FF shocks - I can really tell the difference!



Now I know (or at least I’ve heard) that when you drop the rear suspension, the front end will stiffen up. I can definitely feel stiffness in the front end. I believe the drop the previous owner did was 3” due to the absence of the factory block. Will coil-overs alleviate any of the front end stiffness I am experiencing? If so, what do you recommend? It would be cool if they even had a shock that I can use to drop the front a little even. Thanks for any advice! Once again, looking for coil overs for the front, as it’s been stiffened up by the rear being dropped (leveled.)
