Leveling a 2013 Ram Sport
 
I have a 2013 Ram Sport and I am thinking about putting in a leveling kit but I am a little worried because the guys working the counter of the service department where I bought my truck have told me that they do not sell leveling kits to fit the ram's anymore because the trucks have been encountering major vibration issues when in 4 wheel drive after the kit was installed. So now I am wondering if this is occurring in all ram trucks or if it is just some isolated incidents. As well if it is just some isolated incidents can anyone recommend the best kit for me to go with, so far I've been looking at the new T6 Billet leveling kit from ReadyLift as well as the Bilstein 5100 Series hight adjustable shocks. any help that you can offer would be greatly appreciated.

I have a ready lift 2" in my 13 lone star cc 4x4 and no issues in 2 or 4wd. I have put 4k miles on it so far.

The Bilstein front ride height adjustable shocks i think are about the most popular leveling kit used on this forum with outstanding results...i love mine. Have heard of a few instances with guys setting at the 2.8 in 4wd....which i think is few... I have mine set at 2.1

Did you find any difference in the ride quality of the truck with the Bilstein's installed?

Most people say the ride with the Bilsteins installed is actually better because of the upgraded shock. I have a 2.5" HBS leveling kit on my 2012 and I didn't notice any difference in ride quality. Your dealership is just yanking your chain.

I also have the HBS 2.5" leveling kit. Looks and rides great. For only $79, it's hard to beat that.

I just instlalled the bilsteins, set em at 2.1. The ride feels better than stock to me. Haven't really used 4wd yet but it feels fine in 2wd.

I had the Truxx 2" leveling kit in my 06 2500 and drove in all kinds of conditions on and off road without any issues whatsoever.

Here is the way in see it. If all you want is a level and don't want to spend a lot a spacer will be good. If you want to get a upgraded shocks the go with the bilstein's. my spacers have given me no issues and rides stock and aligned good. That being said when I do the 4" lift I will probably use the bilstein's. just comes down to what your looking to get out of it and how much you want to spend
