Hello, I purchased the 2/3.5 bell tech lowering struts. I was wondering how the ride quality is at maximum drop? Are you bottoming out the suspension, how is the ride quality compared to stock?
I had a last gen escalade and lowered it too much, even with the free travel mod. Don't want to go overboard on the new RST.

Had the fronts installed yesterday, along with 24" reps on 295/35
We did what the instructions said with 2 of the spacer rings, As you can see in the first picture it did just about nothing. Ended up putting one small spacer ring for the fronts.
Still have the rears to do.

I have Belltech performance struts as well and did a 2/3 which has it sitting level. My guy had to tear apart the front end after initial install and removal of a ring to get that look cause Belltech's instructions were wrong lol.

@DurtyHoe - I saw you mentioned that the struts had to be torn apart to correct that errant Belltech guidance on rings vs. drop. Do you happen to have more details on what rings you ended up with front and rear and what drop it actually achieved? Thanks!
I'd have to check with my dude at the dealer, they have an aftermarket guy at mine and I've had him do my lowering/leveling in the past cause it's similar pricing and he's at the dealer haha. I know in the front the instructions called for 2 of the 15MM rings to achieve a 2" drop but we only got a 2"after they removed one of the rings. So if I'm not mistaken the front just has 1 15MM, the instructions for a 3" drop in the rear were accurate.

Thanks for the info! That should be enough to make me dangerous. If anyone else has real world experience with these Belltech struts and could comment on spacers used and actual drops achieved I would appreciate any additional data points.
