Anyone running both the upper and lower arm kits? If so do they work well with the belltech drop ball joints or just use the factory ball joints

It says right in the link that they work with them. I would assume that if their arms didnt work well with the BellTechs, MMW wouldnt say so right in the product description, especially since they also make their own apparently.

They sell them for bags Jeremy.

and I think it answered the question:

"This is the MMW Budget front end kit for the GM 355 / Colorado / Canyon Trucks. This kit includes upper arms with ball joints, all poly bushings, sleeves, and brake line mount holes. The lower arms come with a lower bag mount, shock mount, and all poly bushings and sleeves needed to install. They are intended to use your stock lower ball joint, or drop lower ball joints from beltech, or our MMW drop lower ball joints."

If the truck is already lowered would it help getting the arms to keep the ball joints from being in a bind and to keep from having to max out the alignment keys?

Ok thanks, the truck has the belltech 4/5 kit on it, I went to get it aligned and they had to max out the lower keys, so I was trying to find a way to fix that

The upper arms will help, I had 2in coils, 2in balljoints and drop shocks and had to run arms to help with the camber.

BTW, if your not bagged you won't be able to use those lower arms.


Curious to see what there drop ball joints look like, anyone seen them before?

Why wouldn't I be able to use the lowers with out bagging it, is it because the bag plate would hit the lower spring perch?

Because their lower arm has a spot for a bag to sit on it, it doesn't have anywhere for you to mount the bottom of the coil over.
