My suggestion since you'll be starting from scratch would be to go with a watts link instead of the less than ideal panhard bar.

I literally just got done with lowering my Ram today. It has the infamous lean on the tank side. I'm going to be installing the Airlift 1000s and running slightly higher pressure on one side.

What makes you say that? The test was run by Dodge so I would assume they had a good driver behind the wheel.

For those that don't know this a gallon of gasoline weighs roughly 6 pounds. This varies slightly with the temperature of the gas.

That truck doesn't look like it's been lowered at all. The rear looks higher than mine and it's stock.

Those look fantastic. Sometimes wheels that size look too much like a wagon wheel. That actually looks proportionate to the truck. I wonder what size tires those are.

Does anyone know if any pics of these on a truck exist? I couldn't find any on google image. It will be interesting to see how they look with less sidewall.

Drop springs have higher spring rates to make up for reduced travel. You can cut the stock springs, but your ride will suffer. Probably more so with the smaller 4wd front spring.

This is the way I'd go if I just wanted it level with the stock wheels and tires. They start to look anemic with a traditional leveling kit.

Sorry I didn't realize you had 4wd. If you don't want to swap spindles the GF kit is the one for you. Buy the Spohn adjustable panhard bar and you'll be set.
