Designed to improve the looks and performance of your new RAM, these new kits join existing radius arm variants to offer improved strength and handling on/off-road. Kits include everything necessary to correctly lift them for improved offroad capability with room for larger tires while improving overall vehicle handling.
Up front these systems use a pair of diesel specific progressive rate 6? 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 a 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 6" of lift it is critical to correct the front driveline angle to maintain use of the 4WD. 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 to allow use of the factory drivelines. BDS offers these indexing rings for both the 6-bolt and 8-bolt equipped trucks. In the rear of the RAM 3500 kits a 5" block and u-bolt kit 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.
