How hard is it to level a truck?
While it’s relatively simple, it’s still a highly mechanical process, so we suggest reading through all your instructions before you get started and checking to make sure you have all the tools necessary. The great thing about leveling kits is that you typically don’t have to replace numerous parts to install them.
How does the air ride suspension work on Ram 1500?
Equipped with the Active-Level™ Air Suspension, the Ram 1500 can automatically or manually adjust ride height to optimize performance – with a lower ride height at highway speeds to increase aerodynamics and a higher ride height to increase ground clearance on the trail.
How do I know what size leveling kit to get?
If you’re buying the front kit only, just purchase that height (we recommend rounding down if you’re in between heights). If you’re buying a full kit, you will have to do some more math to find out what you need. For example, if the rear minus the front was 2″, then you need a 2″ front kit to have your truck sit level.
What needs to be replaced when lifting a truck?
