help me
i have recently bought a 1995 rwd ram 1500 w/v8...
its a nice truck but its slammed and i mean bad...
it sits on 17 inch boyds rims and its roughly 1 inch off
the ground in the front....

what all do i need to return it to stock height
i hate scraping on everything in the damn road....
the front tires are pretty low profile, if i get bigger ones i might
can get it 1.5 inches higher but i really want it back to stock...
the rear is lowered also but nowhere near as bad so im not concerned
with the back...

i just checked and it has 245/45 r17 in the front
and the rear has 275/60 r17

The first thing I would need to know is how was it lowered in the first place. Spindles, springs, torsion arms....You may have to get new or used stock parts for it and maybe a taller rim and tire package to return it to stock height.

see im not sure how it was lowered...the guy i bought it from has a new number so i cant ask guessing it has smaller springs...everything on it looks you know the stock rim and tire size..?

is there anything i can look for to determine how it was lowered...??

Hard to believe but the original tire size according to tire is 225/75-16.
