    I have an 06 Dodge Ram 1500. Im not going to put a plow on it, casue aviously I would never put a plow on a half ton. Its my personal truck, and I was just wondering if there is anyway to bring the front end up a bit to level the truck out. I dont really want to have to put timbrens in it just to bring the front end up like 3 iches. I just dont like the way it looks, and would like to level it out a little bit. Thanks for your advice!

    I'll tell you what a GM Engineer told me.
    It was designed like that, for a reason,
    It cause's down preasure on the rear axle while traveling at highway speeds.

    back to your question: you can change springs but you may have shock issue's.
    to fix shock issue add an extention to it.

    Do the 06's still have T-bars or did they go to coils? I can't remember anymore.

    You can get a leveling kit for it. Just search the net for Dodge Ram leveling kit

    Does the 06 have coils in it?
    If it does it is an easy fix,
    The 2500 with plow prep uses a #38 & #39 combo.
    You can get the new springs fairly cheep from your dealer.

    You will not need new shocks the stock ones will have more than enough travel.

    Do a search on springs look for one that says something about sagging.:eek:

    What are you talking about?:dizzy:

    His springs are shot he needs new ones!
    A leveling kit or timbrens are not going to fix that.
    His stock springs were never intended to hold up a plow..

    The 2500 with the plow prep uses the 38&39 combo not the 46 &48 combo like I have on my 98 2500 and yes that truck rides like a truck should..
    My 01 2500 with the 38 & 39 still rides like a boulevard cruiser.:nod:
    The ride will be just fine

    What are you talking about????:dizzy:

    Go back and read the orginal post!!!! 06!!! 1500!!!! Daily driver!!!! Does'nt want a plow on it!!!!! Just wants it to look level and not like a hot rod. So a leveling would solve all his problems. You over thought the post since he put it on Plowsite. His post really should be on Dodge Talk.
