Pls some help.
 
Hello guys. I have a 2012 ram 1500 crew cab 4x4. I want to install a leveling kit from daystar on the truck. The kit with the 2.5 in the front and i guess 1.5 for the back. Does anybody knows if this kit has any negative effect on the truck, like drive shaft vibrations or any thing?
Thx.

probably in wrong area to post..but what your doing is slight and shouldn't affect your pinion angle...

I have a 2.5 front 1.5 rear and truck drives like stock.

I have daystar leveling kit and air lift 1000 in rear, rides fine, although the 2.5" kit seems more like 2", here's my install vid if you need help. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TsOWE...re=context-gfa

Ok guys so i am back. I installed the daystar leveling kit and i did the aligment. The front of the truck drives fine no vibrations 2x4 or 4x4 but the back of the truck when i go on gravel roads like loging roads with bumps feels like i am driving on a ice road. It feels very light and seems that is moving side to side just like driving on snow only with 2x4. Did any of you experience this thing. I am thinking is from the rear shocks because of the extra 1.5' from te coil spacer they are strech to much. I dont know what to do but i am thinking of buying a pair of Bilstein 5100's shocks just for the back to see if that is fixing the problem.

Usually all dirt roads give you a small amount of sway, but the stock shocks shouldn't be causing it they should have more than enough travel for a 1.5" spacer but the Billsteins will be a good mod anyways. The way you describe it almost sounds like you have street tires on a gravel road or you're giving it too much gas. You didn't disconnect your sway bar did you? That could give the truck a wierd feeling

OctavianP 08-24-2012 09:22 AM

No nothing disconected. The ideea is that the back of the truck feels like is only sitting on springs without shocks that is very soft and when i say that the back fells like is on ice the back wheels are not speening or sliding. The sliding feeling and the side to side wobbel is just for the back( the bed) of the truck. Sorry if i dont describe to well what i am tring to say but english is my second language so i am doing the best i can. Thank you.

holydiver89 08-24-2012 12:53 PM

Oh. if back of the truck is bouncing up and down then it's a good possibility it's the shocks, only other thing i can think of is if you have something heavy in the box
