This new lift is designed specifically to work with the factory adjustable air ride system available for the 1500 Ram.
The lift system utilizes the base components from the popular 4" suspension system. This includes 1/4" thick steel laser cut front and rear crossmembers, differential skid plate, ductile cast iron steering knuckles, differential drop brackets and sway bar link extensions.
In order to accommodate for the full height range of the adjustable suspension, front replacement brake lines are also included.
In the rear, upper control arm relocation brackets, track bar relocation bracket and sway bar links are included. This new system uses front and rear air bag spacers to maintain the proper position and function of the factory air bags. All necessary air line fittings and hardware are included.
Important Kit Notes

2. Fits factory air ride equipped trucks only.
3. The factory air ride is a closed loop system. Opening the system more times than recommended in the lift instructions or factory service manual will require the system to be recharged. This can be done at any Ram dealer service department.
