Thanks, just seems a little low every time I go camping or haul anything. Will have to look into upgrading.It’s normal. These trucks sag easy when a little weight is added in back. I’m sure this bugs you if you’re posting about it. The best fix for that is some aftermarket coil springs in the rear. TufTruck springs are what you want. They have several models to choose from depending on your needs. If you’re not sure which ones to get you can call the company and they will guide you to the ones that will best suite your needs. They are what should have come in the trucks.
I’ve had some on my truck for several years now and I highly recommend them. Here’s my truck with about 850 pounds of tools and equipment in the back. There’s no sag at allThanks, just seems a little low every time I go camping or haul anything. Will have to look into upgrading.
What set did you recommend specifically?Call airlift and get their compressor setup and a set of airbags if you load her often. They aren't very expensive and keep your headlights down on the road. The airbags are a really easy job to do yourself. You don't have to do the compressor if you install a valve to inflate deflate that comes with the kits.
Dont get any silly leaf springs. You'll ruin the ride and the truck is not meant for leaf springs. Just go get an Airlift set up with rear bags. I put some bags on my Power Wagon. Specifically, I got a Airlift Wireless One compressor with Airlift bags and Daystar cradles so I can still use the flex without tearing the bags (If you can, I would use this setup in the 1500 as well). They work like a charm and if anything, they improve the ride even more. I had the shop mount the compressor inside the cab, under the back seat to keep it out of the elements. Its nothing short of awesome. Do it! You wont be sorry.What set did you recommend specifically?
It is like putting that weight in the trunk of a car. A 1500 is a light weight and is more about the ride than the payload. I would consider air bags or air shocks over changing springs. When all is said and done and the weight is out, the ride stays the same. I have a DRW with air bags. Bags are at zero with no load, but it is there when I need it.Just checking if this is normal rear end sag. I have about 500-600lbs of camping equipment in the back of the truck. Is this an issue with, Springs, Leaf Springs, or shocks.
Sounds like you got the wrong model of springs. The 1223v’s or 1211’s might have been a better choice for you. As far as leveling the dealer can void your warranty as a result of the truck being leveled unless they can prove the level caused a failure. Then they can only void the repair of that failed part, not the entire truck. If you use new struts to level, like bilstein 5100’s, and you don’t use spacers you should not have any problems.I put the TT1223 on my 19 Ram 4x4. the rear is a couple inches higher than stock even with my Shell and 2-3 hundred in the bed. If I had it to do over. I would stay stock and use air bags for the occasional load. Just my .02
I still haven't raised the front. I would like to but wonder about warranty. My dealer said he would void if leveled. I dont want to hassle with him.
