      What is the biggest size all terrain tire would you recommend on a 2015 4x4 Ram Express with a 2.5" leveling kit? (http://www.roughcountry.com/dodge-suspension-lift-kit-358.html) I would be using stock 20" wheels.
      Check out the Guide to Leveling linked in my signature. It will tell you exactly what you need to know.

      I bought a 2011 Dodge ram 1500 Crew Cab 4x4, with 20x9 ATX Artillery wheels, & 305/55r20 Pro Comp Extreme All Terrains. When going down the highway, starting around 40 mph plus, the tires feel like they are bouncing instead of rotating. The truck runs straight down the highway when you let go of the steering wheel. I had the tires rebalanced and the front end realigned. The air pressure is 60 psi in each tire. I thought that would cure the problem after I bought the truck, which it has, but now I feel like an idiot. Now I am considering buying new tires (285/60r20) for my truck. Has anyone had any issues with these tires.

      Thanks in advance.
      Sounds to me like you don't have hub rings installed with your new wheels. Wheels that are lug centric rather than hub centric will often have wobble/bounce issues at highway speeds. A simple set of hub rings should take care of your issue.

      So I read this entire thread and until the last page didn't see anyone mention the use of a pre-load spacer I have a 2019 classic 4x4 CC with 1100 miles on it and already cant stand the 3" factory rake so looking at options. I am leaning towards this kit https://www.roughcountry.com/dodge-suspension-lift-kit-358c.html but on such a new truck don't want any issues with ball joints. So in my thoughts because I am retaining the stock strut in front it would limit the travel to within oem specs for the ball joint, is this correct?

      Honestly, for the cost of that kit, I would recommend just getting the Bilstein 5100's. The labour is the same to install each as the strut has to be disassembled but with the Bilsteins you get the added benefit of a better performing shock that will last longer.

      You likely won't want the rear spacers anyway as that will leave you with too much rake. Steel rear spacers are also known to make a fair amount of noise going over bumps/chatter.

      I recently bought a 2016 ram 1500 bighorn and would like to put the leveling lift kit from rough country on it. Here's the link to it. http://www.roughcountry.com/dodge-suspension-lift-kit-358c.html my understanding is that it's 2.5inches lift up front and about 1.5inches in the rear. It should give me a pretty good stance and ride height. Any one use this kit, and howd it do as far as any drive line binding.What I'm worried about is the dealer warranty on the truck after this. From what I've been told if the dealer installs it I should have no worries, any one have experience with this? What were you charged for labor on this. I'd like to have an idea before I call them tomorrow. I'd prefer to install it myself but in worried about the warranty. Any one do this before and have any problems with powertrain or driveline warranties? I dont and wont take this truck offroad so those kinda stresses aren't an issue, I have an old ramcharger for those kinda things. This is purely a visual preference to take away the rake it has right now. Thanks

      Hey y'alls!!

      I'm hesitating between 2 level/lift kits for my 2015 1500.

      I can get for just about the same amount of bucks either one of two kits:

      Daystar/Performance Accesories at 2in front and 1.5in rear
      http://performanceaccessories.com/index.php?id_product=16&controller=product#more

      Or;
      RoughCountry at 2.5in front and 1.75in rear
      http://www.roughcountry.com/dodge-suspension-lift-kit-358c.html

      Has anyone installed either one of these two kits? Is one of the kits not recommended, or better than the other. As of now, I'm leaning towards the RCX due to the fact that I get a bit more lift, more space for the 33's

      Thanks in advance for any and all input!

      Thanks for the replies guys. Just though I would throw that question out there. Seemed like a really interesting way to lift the front without have to over extend the upper control arms. I agree the stock struts are junk and yes the bilsteins will give a much better ride.


      Here is a link to the kit I was referring to it is only for the 12-14 Ram 1500 4x4.
      http://www.roughcountry.com/dodge-suspension-lift-kit-358.html

      I will be going with the bilstein 5100's front and rear. With a 1.5 rear spacer and Zone upper control arms in the front. Will also be adding a Zone 1.5 body lift too. Tires will be BFG All-Terrain KO2 285/65/20.

      Ya'll have a Happy Thanksgiving !!!!!!
