Here are some pics to show my results. It's a little hard to tell by looking just at the truck itself. There was some camera tilt plus my driveway has a slight slope to it so it is hard to eyeball, but the bubble level tells the tale. Now with the new linkage installed I have been able to correct it. Check out these pics of before and after.

My solution was to by the adjustable linkage mentioned in the posts above from www.adjustableairride.com. The owner John was extremely helpful when I contacted him. There is a kit especially for the RAM 1500. When ordering you must indicate whether you want to lift or lower your truck.

Overall I am glad I was able to correct RAM's mistake, but this solution is a bit pricey. However, it was extremely easy to apply.

If you have any questions let me know.

Jason
That's excellent news Jason.

By how much did you adjust them?

Default Where did you get the rods?

I just looked up the site where you ordered the ball joints, but where did you get the rods?
This has been very helpful thank you for the post. My Brother lives in Vegas and runs a performance shop there and lifts and lowers trucks all day, and said I could do just what you posted about, but this made it very clear.

Is this the exact part number you ordered, and do they have the clips that keep them from coming off?
Also, do I need to order 8 of them?

I also looked up the site that you found, for the adjustable airride, they are very spendy and hoping I can do this myself

I got my adjustable links in the mail took my two adjustments on the rear to get them to where I liked them (40 inches from the floor to the fender well) so a 2 inche increase. Ended up lengthening the links about 3/4 of an inch and it was just right. The front took quite a few tries to get it up two inces to about 38 3/4 and then I struggled getting the side to side even but I made a few small adjustment to the driver side and cycled it a few times and I'm within an 1/8 so I'm pleased. It is definitely necessary to cycle the shocks up and down so they learn the new rod adjustment and can account in order to make accurate measurement to adjust. Overall very pleased just a little pricey
