Putting a 2/3 Drop on a 2007 Tahoe
A 2/3 DROP FOR THE ’07 TAHOE
DJM Suspension installs their 2/3-drop kit for the new Chevy Tahoe…
Story & photos by Marshall Spiegel
Like all new vehicles manufactured in the U.S., the ’07 Chevy Tahoe was born with its butt in the air. It’s good looking with well-bent sheet metal; quality interior appointments and a price tag to match. The stock ride height is 20 ¼ inches in the front and 23-1/8 inches in the rear measured from the center of the hub to the lip of the fender well. Since Chevrolet was attacking the market as early as possible with this ’07 model, the crew at DJM Suspension decided to attack the Tahoe’s ride height as early as possible also.
After a bunch of staring and measuring from beneath the company’s own ’07 Tahoe, undoubtedly the first one purchased anywhere in the Los Angeles area, the DJM engineering department created three-inch drop coils with shock extenders and a 2/3 drop kit evolved for the new Tahoe. For a successful three-inch drop in the rear, the stock bump stops had to be trimmed. As the 2/3 drop kit evolved, the engineering guys discovered that the sway bar had to be moved ¾-inch to the right (passenger ‘s side) to clear the panhard rod bracket. As a result, two new mounting holes had to be drilled on the left side. Then new DJM end links were installed and tightened.
To stop a bind on the existing trailing arm and properly align the drive shaft, the trailing arm relocator had to be tightened also. After the installation was complete, the rear ride height measured 19 ¾ inches, a drop of slightly more than three inches.
The front end drop, which turned out to measure exactly 2 ¼ inches, is a matter of removing the stock lower control arms and replacing them with new DJM arms. The DJM twin tube sleeves must be greased before they are installed. An extremely important feature of this DJM front drop are the new DJM ball joints,, each equipped with a fixed boot, essentially a bag that holds grease to lubricate the joint and keeps dirt and impurities away from the ball joint.
Stock Chevrolet lower ball joints are notoriously difficult to remove without damaging the boot. Using a pickle fork to remove the stock ball joint is very tempting, but this can easily damage the boot. When the boot is damaged, the grease leaks out and the dirt gets in. A damaged boot creates problems down the road until it is replaced.
Other lowering kits may have to reuse existing ball joints and control arms and, in so doing, may damage the ball joint boot. If the boot is damaged in removal, it should be replaced before re-assembly.
DJM’s newly engineered lower control arms lower the truck 2 ¼ inches and come with improved twin tube sleeves and new ball joints with fixed boots and zerk fittings. The result, according to the DJM engineering team, is perfect front–end geometry and excellent handling. I don’t know anything about “perfect front-end geometry,” but I do know “excellent handling,” and if you get a chance to drive an ’07 Tahoe with this 2/3 DJM drop kit, you’ll know excellent handling too.
In any case, the accompanying photos and captions follow the highlights of the installation of this new DJM 2/3drop kit into the new ’07 Chevy Tahoe.

4WD Lowering Kits
I always buy a four wheel drive truck for a daily driver. Living in Canada and in a rural setting having four wheel drive is a necessity. Without a four wheel drive there would be days when I would have to stay home because the snow was too deep for a two wheel drive truck. It's also great having four wheel drive when the roads are icy. Pop it into 4x4 and gain a couple extra wheel with traction.
Now keep in mind if I was into serious off roading or trail driving I wouldn't lower a four wheel drive truck but 99% of my driving is on paved or gravel roads. I don't need the extra ground clearance, I just need more traction than a 2wd truck offers.
But what are the advantages of lowering a four wheel drive truck?
Number one is the fact that it is easier to get in and out of. You will be extra thankful for this if you have small children. When their small an extra couple inches makes quite a difference. And it work the same for seniors too. Bringing the rocker sill a couple of inches closer to the ground makes getting in and out so much easier.
Number two, on nearly every model of four wheel drive truck a couple of inches of lowering does not hurt the ride quality, in fact it quite often improves it. And the handling as always better with a lower center of gravity. It's just purely the physics of lowering the mass closer to the road. You generally end up with less body roll when you lower your four wheel drive truck too so it feels and acts more stable. And if you pull a trailer with your truck then the lowering is a bigger advantage still, the trailer will also have a lower center of gravity on the hitch which will make it more stable too.
And the number three reason? Well your four wheel drive truck will look better when it's lowered down a couple of inches. A lot of later model trucks are designed and built with large gaps between the wheel and tire. I'm not sure what the designer's purpose was when they did this but that's they way they come from the factory. So lowering your four wheel drive truck will narrow this gap and improve the appearance.

twitter announced today that it will be removing its implementation of stories dubbed “fleets.” the feature was either loved or hated by twitter users since its initial release last year.
this short-lived feature, which was released in november of last year, will be removed on august 3. twitter acknowledged the controversial nature of the snapchat/instagram clone with the farewell tweet. notably, there was no fleet from the main twitter account announcing the departure of the feature, only a standard tweet.
in the goodbye, the company said it is working on “new stuff.” one can hope that they add the ability to edit tweets, in addition to the new edit audience and monetization features.
in a more detailed blog post, twitter shared that it hoped fleets would make people more comfortable posting onto twitter. as fleets disappear, some of the fleet creation features, like gifs and stickers, will be implemented into the standard tweets composer.

GM TRUCK AND SUV LOWERING KITS 1963-2017
Silverado, Sierra, C10, C30, Tahoe, Yukon, Denali, Suburban, Escalade, EXT
Belltech’s very first product was produced for a GM vehicle back in 1983. Since then it’s been a staple of our foundation here, and every year Belltech continues to work alongside this great American company. Aside from the G10 & G20, Belltech has mirrored it’s vehicle suspension application offering with GM’s dating back to 1963 for its 1500 vehicles.
First to market for both the C-Notch and spindle, the C10 has a very special place in every truck lovers heart. Most of our kits for the C10 truck consist of drop spindles, hangers, shackles, flip kits, C-notch, and of course the famous Belltech dampers.
This truck will always scream BELLTECH, with its timeless style, and bulletproof drive train you can expect this truck to be around for many years to come. Most of our hard parts have not changed in design since its early release back in 1988. This truck is now almost considered a “classic” in this day and age, so if you see one for a good price, buy it and install our product immediately. Oh, and don’t forget the Super-CNotch still available on a built to order basis.
In 2007, we were introduced to the strut style front ends for all half ton GM truck and SUV’s. Belltech’s response to this development was an adjustable strut, with easy to set height ranges. Even though others have released their own solutions our Belltech strut is still vastly preferred over all because of our state of the art foot and rebound valve technology.
The future of truck suspension is now
Belltech Sport Trucks recently developed a new suspension set up for late model Dodge, GM and Ford. This new lowering package contains sway bars, lowering kit (where applicable) and four full-adjustable shock absorbers. The driving behavior can individually be adjusted to the preferences of the driver using the dampers that are independently adjustable in rebound and compression.
Suspension technology in detail
The twintube shocks features the same adjustable damper technology like the well-known worldwide KW Variant 3 coilover shocks. With this separate adjustability it is possible to select a stiffer or more comfortable suspension setup on demand. The rebound damping is adjustable with 16 clicks and allows the driver to directly take influence on the handling and the driving comfort. By increasing the rebound forces, the body movements are reduced. With the compression damping, adjustable in twelve clicks, the traction of the tires can be increased and the handling can further be influenced. For our dampers, pre-configured high speed compression valves are also used. The great advantage of this is comes when driving over large cross joints or speed bumps, the bypass channels in the dampers are opened and the piston rod can immerse. Put simply, the wheel deflects when driving over a bump and at high speeds; the tires do not lose ground traction. By using this blow-off-characteristics from the KW valves technology, driving becomes even safer.
In addition, the Belltech Sport Truck shocks give every customer the ability to lower their late model trucks to improve the sporty ride quality of the vehicle, we also suggest installing our rear sway bar when its available. Reduce body roll and increase stiffness by connecting the opposite wheels of a truck using a steel torsion spring (sway bar). The bar greatly improves road handling during rapid load changes and hard cornering by reducing the load difference between the inside and outside wheels during the corner so the handling also improves.
