Default Lift kit help for my 2wd!

WHAT AND WHERE DO I BUY?!?! i have a 2012 ram 1500 sport 2wd and I want to put a suspension lift on it. What suspension kit has the best bang for the buck for at least a 4" kit or 6" kit. I was also told to go with the Bilstein shocks because they are adjustable. Obviously "performance" isnt really an issue because I'm only going for looks and not really takin it off road. I just need to know what kit I should get for a 2wd or if the 4wd kits will work. I dont know much about the front ends of these trucks and how different they are between the 2wd and 4wd.....HELP!

I HIGHLY suggest performancelifts.com they do have a CST 4" 6" and 7" lift on there and are GREAT with their customers, CST has problems with having their stuff in stock and sending things off in a good amount of time.. Performancelifts was one the only people I found that had everything in stock ready to go.. 7" is around 1500 and the others ones go down from that I believe the 6" is around 1200... Check it out though!

I looked and they only show a 4" and 6"...the 6 is 1600 I believe. Also, I want 20" wheels and I was told to get 37" tires because the 35" might look funny with that size wheel since the wheel wells on the dodges are so much bigger...but idk.

And the CST kit seems like there's nothing really to it. Should I get new shocks as well?
And does anyone know where to get a great deal on wheels and tires?

They do have 7" cause i just ordered mine. lol but on the link it shows it is out of stock at the moment. With the lift you wont need the coil spring spacer cause of the weight of the hemi. SO you save about 70.00 bucks and the shocks are not required but recommended you may not need them but I chose them cause I want to ensure a good ride.


Here is a pic of a truck with this lift and 35s with 20in wheels.

I had many of the same concerns Ill have mine installed late this week with 35/12.5/20 ill update my post with pics so you can have a better idea. I also have a 2012.

There really isnt much required to lift a 2wd so dont stress too much there.




CST makes a great product, and while they do lag, their stuff if usually worth it.
