If your dropping the rear on your Dodge you will need a leaf spring flip kit.

Default Wanna drop your Hemi?

Just thought id try and help.. I've got a 04 Ram.. I like you have a 2wdrive.. I
wanted the truck to sound and look fast.. I put the Flow Master dual exhaust kit on and dropped it 5 in the back and 2 in the front. I tell u it is just right.It looks great and even handles better.I had a friend of mine make me up some Harley Davidson stripes for the back since i also ride a Harley..I love the truck. Tomorrow im gonna take some pix of the truck and learn how to put them on here.. Trust me if you do the same u will love it...The drop was perfect and she sits level or maybe just a wee wee bit of rake..Keep in touch and we can follow up on this... Thank's Mike from Charlotte...

Not true. All you need is lowering shackles. I also had my overload spring removed to get a full 2" drop so it sits perfectly level.
