Default Got drop questions

I have 12 Ram R/T and I've been debating whether I should drop it or keep at stock level since my its my daily driver but now after seeing some pics of these things dropped I'm set on dropping this thing. My questions is which kit is the way to go. I've been reading that the 2012 suspension is different from 09-11? I found a couple kits that said it worked for 09-12 so I'm confused at this point. I've seen belltech, McGaughtys and ground force. Thanks for your help

^damn that's a shiny truck.

I'm not aware of any suspension changes with the new trucks. 2009-2012 should be the same.

You could level the rear with a 2" rear drop kit, as another option.

I posted on belltechs wall on Facebook and ask them:
I was looking for a drop kit for 2012 Ram single cab and wanted to order your 964SP but I was reading on some Ram forums that the suspension for the 2012 is different from 2011? Is this true and if it is do you guys have a kit for the 2012?

Their response:
We have not testing on the 2012 Ram, we have seen some customers that have installed on the regular ram but there are some clearance issues with the express.

I told them I had a R/T and they just told me to call. I'm installing this myself so I wanted it to be as smooth as possible

You should be good to go with the 964sp. Just get a set of crows foot wrenches for the top shock mount in the rear. Remove rear well liners and have a buddy help you out. It's not to bad at all, Just take your time. Post pics when done!

How does your truck ride with the belltech kit? I want to lower mine but don't know much about lowered trucks!
