Look underneath to see if you have torsion springs or look behind the wheel to see if you have coil springs.

If you have torsion springs you can just crank them up and don't need to buy any parts. If you have coils you need to buy a spacer block.

I believe the 2002-2005 Rams have torsion bars. All you really need to do is crank the torsion bars to lift the truck. The only thing with doing this is you do not want to go too high with this method. My buddy really cranked them and his truck rode like $hit, it was awful. You could buy aftermarket keys but I believe you can do this yourself. Take a look on youtube or something and see how to do.

Get the keys. Crank the torsion bars. Ride will be a little rough but that's really your only option. In my opinion, get the keys. It's easy to do. But study up on how to do it and make sure you have the proper tools. Torsion bars can be dangerous if not worked on properly.

Or save the money and the danger of unloading the torsion bars by just cranking your stock keys. It's free and gets you the same result, then take the money saved and spend it on some new shocks to accommodate the increased ride height.
I've done it both ways. The only thing that aftermarket keys offer over the stock keys is the ability to crank the torsion bars over 2". By doing that your truck will now ride like a brick and you will be replacing front end parts a lot quicker than you like.
