Post Need help sourcing a leveling/lowering kit

Hey guys, I've been searching off and on for months and haven't had much luck. I am looking specifically for a 1" front /2" rear lowering kit, tuned for street perfornce type applications for my 2010 CC 1500 2x4. Springs and shocks are of-course mandatory, but what about sway bar choices or upper/lower control choices. I come from the jeep world where everything is mod-able and or adjustable with a very BIG aftermarket industry available. I have yet to find the "pleathera" of aftermarket parts for my RAM that I am seeking.

Any and all advice is welcome. Thanks.

Welcome to modding a Ram... very little aftermarket support.

As for dropping your truck, a 1" front drop will be hard to find an aftermarket spring for, your best bet is to trim your factory spring, half a coil IIRC. You can buy 2" rear drop springs from McGaughy's. Sway bars are available from Hellwig or Addco and both are good bars. If you're only doing a 2" rear drop then you won't need to change out the control arms on the 4-link. Nobody makes an aftermarket lower front control arm except for 4+" lift kits except for Michigan Metal Werks and theirs are set up for a bag kit from the 3rd gen that will transfer over to the 4th gen. There are more choices for front UCAs, I'm running the MMW uppers but there are Zone UCAs that are popular for the lifted/leveled crowd to replace the factory ball joint that likes to pop out of the UCA.

Thanks CD, I'm looking for a 2" rear drop and McGaughy's sounds like the ticket.
