Do the Regular Cab Express have any Rear end issues when Lowered?
 
Curious because I know the reg cab express doesnt have any bars or links and wondered if there is the same issues as the r/t and the crew and quad cabs have. Thanks

Other than reduced travel there are no real issues with any of them.

No real issues. The lower you go the more offset the axle will be from center. Lower it 2" it's not even noticeable. Lower it 3"+ you probably will want to get the aftermarket adjustable panhard bar to get it back to center. It could cause premature bushing wear in the 4 link otherwise(not to mention looking a bit funny off center).

All ram 1500's basically have the same suspensions the differences only being springs, shocks, and sway bars. Geometry and all is the same on all.

In videos made for a tv show, GEARS
Stacey David takes a 2011 EXPRESS model & makes it into something more to most peoples liking

One episode covers the rear end changes that he did
