Choosing The Best Lowering Kit For Your Chevrolet Silverado

The Chevrolet Silverado might be one of the most customized trucks of all time. From new wheels to exhaust kits, Silverado owners are continuously making these trucks their very own. One of the most popular modifications for any year Silverado is a lowering kit. Today, we are going to look at a few different kits you can choose for your Silverado and how Deviate Dezigns can help you lower your truck. 

Choosing The Best Lowering Kit For Your Chevrolet Silverado

What Lowering Kits Are Available For A Silverado?

When lowering your Silverado, you can choose from a variety of different lowering kits and combine these kits for a more fine-tuned suspension. The top three most popular lowering kits for Silverados are lowering springs/shackles, coilovers, and air suspension. Let’s dive in deeper to each one to see which might be best for you.

Lowering Springs/Shackles

Cost Effective/No Adjustability

The most cost-effective lowering kit for your Silverado will be a basic lowering spring and shackle kit. These kits can be found in various configurations, depending on what brand it is, but they will all be cheaper than going with coilovers and air suspension. While these are a great option for those who do not want to spend a lot of money to lower their truck, they do limit you on a static drop. A static drop means that you cannot change the ride hieght of the vehicle once installed.


Great For Fine Tuning Suspension/Can Be Costly

Coilovers on a truck are normally only used in racing applications such as drag racing, road racing, or auto-x. Coilovers feature adjustable collars to adjust your suspension with the wheels off of the car. The main benefit of coilovers is the ability to fine-tune each corner for your specific application.

Air Suspension

On-The-Fly Suspension Adjustments/Most Expensive Option

Last but certainly not least is everyone’s favorite, air suspension. Ok, well maybe not everyone’s favorite, but it is one of those mods that more people wish they could afford. Air suspension uses air bags instead of springs to inflate and deflate to raise and lower your vehicle. Since air suspension does require more parts and more fabrication work on the truck, it is going to cost you a few thousand to purchase parts and depending on your mechanic, $500-$2,000 to get it installed and working correctly.

Which Lowering Kit Is Best For Me?

While these kits are certainly not a one-size-fits-all suspension kit, they are built with specific purposes in mind. So when choosing a Silverado lowering kit, you will need to take into account your budget, the type of driving you will be doing, and the additional modifications you may need to make to get it all installed.
