  1. Rear Bilstein springs anybody?

    Custom Chassis - Drive Line, Suspension - Leveling
    Has anyone used the Bilstein coil springs that raise the rear by 1 inch? If so, are they better or worse than stock springs? Firmer or softer? Any input is appreciated.

    2018 Dodge Ram Forum
    Hey everyone, I'm new here, this is my first post. Just got my 18 Ram limited with Air suspension. I had a 14 Sport custom build before. I had a 2" leveling kit in my 14 and am wondering about the implications of installing any kind of lift/level kit on a truck that has a factory air...
  3. 08' RAM 4x2 - To level or not?

    Custom Chassis - Drive Line, Suspension - Leveling
    Like most who post, I'd like to go to the local 4 Wheel Parts store and take them up on installing a leveling kit to beef up the front and I would also like to buy some slightly taller & wider tires. From my research the word so far is no; don't do it. It ruins the vehicle in terms of driving...

    Custom Chassis - Drive Line, Suspension - Lifting
    So, I'm in a pickle. I bought 285/70/17's and a 2" leveling kit for my 2012 Ram 1500 4wd. Everything was going nice and smooth up until the last bolt. The lower strut bolt is sized to the bushing. I tried hammering, breaker bars, impact gun (even one impact on one end and another on the reverse...

    Suspension
    So, I just had a new bumper installed. AND I LOVE IT. Previously had the Sport trim bumper, estimated weight of what, 50 lbs at most? I now have a hefty 200-300 pounder, all steel bumper. One thing that was mentioned to me that I had shoved into the back of my mind is what will this do to the...

  12. Best way to acheive a 3'' Rear lift?

    Custom Chassis - Drive Line, Suspension - Leveling
    Ive got a 2015, Ram Sport 4x4. I did a leveling kit on it using Bilsteins 5100 on 2.8 on the front and 1.5 inch spacers on the rear. This gave me plenty of clearance for my 35s and looked great. Problem is that I have a cap on the rear of my truck now, which increases the weight on the...
  13. Installed Bilsteins, Tuftruck Springs, Mevotech UCA's

    Custom Chassis - Drive Line, Suspension - Leveling
    Installed Bilstein 5100, all four corners. Also replaced OEM rear springs with TUfTruck 1211. Ride is much firmer, without being harsh. Feels more "truck" like, if that makes sense. Before,the ride reminded of an old 1970's family wagon cruiser. Too much bounce, not planted on the roadway. OEM...

  17. Alignment needed with Bilstein adjustable?

    Custom Chassis - Drive Line, Suspension - Lifting
    I have the bilstein 5100 front adjustable shocks that I am going to have installed tomorrow. I was told that if they were struts I would have to have an alignment done, but since they are shocks it is not necessary.
