coilovers for 13 ram
 
Does anyone know if anybody makes a coilover specific to the Ram? I've looked everywhere, even contacted Ridetech but didn't get an answer back! Otherwise I will have to find a universal set! thanks in advance

Coilovers to do what? Do you want to lift or lower?

no one sells coil overs as of yet, there's a couple guys using custom Ride Tech coilovers though. Only issue I have with coil overs is how they mount in the rear though. The OEM spring sits on top of the axle while the OEM shock is mounted separately from the axle to the frame at forward angle. So with coilovers the spring is removed, and the coilover is put in lace of the shock and I wonder how that effects ride quality and payload as well. That part seems a little sketchy to me.

I would think they would use the same setup as say a vw in the rear, the spring with a sleeve and then a shorter shock! I'm thinking since there probably won't be too much of a price, i might just go with air ride! I had it in one of my cars and loved the adjustability of it!
