2015 Dodge RAM 2 inch Lift-Level using Bilstein 5100
Today I meet up with my buddy Chris to install Bilstein 5100 ride height adjustable shocks and TufTruck rear springs into his 2015 RAM 1500. He wants to increase payload capacity, level the truck by removing the rake present in the stock setup, as well as increase the aesthetic look of the truck overall. Because this is a daily driver, we wanted to use components that would retain as much of the stock mounting points, geometry, and reliability as possible. Overall, we are quite pleased with the outcome. After driving for a few days, an alignment was conducted to ensure everything is tracking correctly after installation of the new components. We suggest you do the same if you install a kit similar to what we did. Chris has tracked a few hundred miles since the install and is very pleased with the results.

Torque specs and socket sizes provided. Tires: Nitto Terra Grabbler in LT275/65/R20 (these fit the 2014 RAM 1500 Crew Cab even without level kit; at least the version without air suspension) Update after 7500 miles: Still no problems with this setup and I regularly go off-roading when hunting. Highly recommend. Update after 10k miles: Had my truck at the dealer for first maintenance today. Asked them to check out the front upper ball joints and they said they look very good. No cracks, no stress to be seen.
