Designed to improve the look and performance of your new RAM, these new kits join existing 2"/3"/4"/6" lift kit options offering improved strength, capability and handling at a new taller lift height. Kits include everything necessary to correctly lift them for improved offroad capability with room for up to 40" tires while improving overall vehicle handling.
Up front these systems use a pair of 8" diesel specific progressive rate coil springs to provide the extra height and smooth controlled performance in the harshest of terrains. A forged drop pitman arm is supplied to correct steering angles along with an HD bar drop bracket to re-center the front axle. A pair of sway bar drop brackets reposition the OE sway bar for optimal performance along with extended polyurethane bump stops to limit up travel and brake line brackets to allow full droop. To correct the front suspension geometry at the new height, the factory stamped steel radius arms are converted over to 4-link using a pair of 1/4" steel brackets and high strength upper and lower control arms designed to limit caster control throughout suspension travel for more predictable handling characteristics. Also supplied are your choice of BDS NX2 gas shocks or FOX 2.0 Performance Series IFP gas shocks for improved ride and performance.
At 8" of lift it is critical to make front driveline adjustments to maintain use of 4WD due to the increased operating angle. To do this, BDS Suspension provides a heavy duty replacement transmission crossmember as well as a transfer case indexing ring to reposition the front driveline output which will need to be used in combination with an aftermarket front driveshaft (not included with kit). In the rear of the RAM 3500 kits a 5" block and add-a-leaf kit along with longer u-bolt for a level-to-slightly tail high while maintaing tow capacity. Finishing out the rear are a matching set of BDS NX2 gas shocks or FOX 2.0 Performance Series IFP gas shocks. Get the look and the ride you are after with these new 8" 4-link systems from BDS Suspension.
