Default Did the 2008 Sport edition trucks get any different suspension than regular trucks?

I just got a 2008 Sport quad cab truck and maybe it's just me, but it seems to be higher up than the other trucks I looked at. Does it come different from the factory with any unique suspension stuff from other Ram trucks or is it just cosmetic stuff?

Thanks

Does the leveling change the front or back height?

Front but it's not hard to install a lift block in the rear as well

If i remember correctly the sports actually sit lower in the front so you must have a leveling kit...

Look for a metal spacer on top of the front coil spring... maybe take a pic and post it up!

Sport or not, Don't all Rams (If they're 4X2) sit lower in the front.

Guess we'd need to know if he's 2 or 4wd in order to accurately answer his question
