Default 09 Ram Lifted

Took me the better part of a day to install a Superlift 4" kit in my 09 Sport crew cab 4x4. I used the stock wheels with 1/4" spacers which gave just enough room to clear the 12.5" wide tire and aftermarket knuckle. The truck rode identical to stock with the stock tires on. The new tires (35x12.5r20 Procomp Xtreme A/T's) made the truck feel much more stable in corners due to the width, stiffer sidewall and the fact that they are E rated.
Here are the results:

Before:
After:

Front end apart:

Lift Installed, stock tires:

Done:




Truck sits perfectly level with no load in back, in the second picture it looks to be sitting slightly low in the rear due to a box full of tools, tires and suspension parts. The replacement rear springs are a slightly higher spring rate which is hardly noticeabe when driving but seem to handle weight a bit better than the factory springs.
