    Hey Folks,

    I have some general questions about front suspension modification for my ram 2500. I have heard a lot of pros and cons just wanted everyone thoughts on what they are using as in Timbren Kits, Leveling Kits, lift kits, airbags, etc. I was going to go with a leveling kit until I heard I would need an adjustable track bar because leveling kits shift the axle. So Im just wondering what is the option would be.

    I used a superlift level kit on my 17 2500 with a 6.4, and it has been fine. the only thing you need the track bar adjustable is for more than 3 inches of lift. I did mine when it was brand new and have 43k on it now

    Thanks for the info. Are you running larger tires as well, and did you notice and height issues with the plow mount after installing the leveling kit?

    I'm running leveling kit on my 16 with 35" tires. No track bar needed. Have a BOSS plow with mount in lowest holes.

    No rubbing with the 35's with the plow on or off. What width are they ?

    I'm not sure about Dodge. But the Timbren SES on my Chevy front suspension made a night and day difference. The 12 year old stock units were shot! plow susp.jpg
