Default New Ram Sport Owner

I recently picked up my first Dodge Ram 1500 Sport 4x4.

My only problem is I found out the previous owner put a GF lowering kit
on it. Naturally, I want my 4x4 taller not lower. I don't have any factory
components anymore so I'm considering putting Fox loaded front strut assemblies or Rancho loaded front assemblies to get a 2" lift in the front. But now I don't know what to do with the rear. I haven't found anyone that sells factory rear coils or aftermarket ones to match the front. Any suggestions would be great.
Thanks

Welcome to the forumz from Maine. Can't help you with leveling, but I will say, Rancho stuff is excellent. I had my dealer install Rancho 9000's when my Ram was new. At almost 200,000 miles, they are holding up great.

Welcome to the Z. Lots of great people and info here.

Congrats on your new ride!

We don't do lift/level kits, but BDS is another popular make.

If you haul or tow heavy loads, please check us out

We add 9" air springs that level the load.

We introduced TLC on the Z and have many happy customers.
