    Belltech shocks used to be crap, and then KW automotive bought out Belltech. Their new line of shocks seem to be much better.

    Is KW related to Intrax?

    I don't think so. KW in German based, Intrax is Holland based.
    KW owns LSD doors, Weitech suspensions, Belltech, and ST suspension.

    Right, its been a while since I've looked into eather of them. I went to KW's site last night and it looked very similar to what Intrax site used to look like and they're both purple and yellow so it got me thinking... Anyways, have you personaly used the new line of shocks? I've been hesitant to buy anything since there seem to be more bad reviews than good for just about everything offered for our trucks, but no mention of the newer line from Belltech.

    Before I got out of the retail business I did a set of the new Nitro Drop 2 shocks. As I recall they rode pretty well, and the customer didn't come back complaining, so I guess that says something. It looks like the Street Performance shocks are better than the Nitro's, so I'd say go for it.

    Those were the old ones, before KW bought out Belltech. When that happened all the old shocks were discontinued, and Belltech introduced a new shocks. Probably because I must have returned about 50 of their old ones, at least.

    I think I may go ahead and get them unless I find something else in the next couple weeks. If I do I'll be sure to write a review.
