CST now offers two different 4" Lift Spindles for the 2013 and 2014 Ram 1500 2wd trucks. The only difference is the material type used to produce them. The CSS-D1-1 Spindles are Fabricated in the USA by CST using 1018 Sheet Steel and are considerably stronger than the OEM parts they replace. New from CST are the CSS-D1-5 Spindles that are also built in the USA but are Cast Iron and slightly less expensive than the Fabricated Steel Version. Both of the CST Ram 1500 2wd 4" Lift Spindles are built in the USA and are stronger than the OEM parts they replace. CST lift spindles also provide a ground clearance increase that gives the 2wd Ram more ground clearance than a same height lifted Ram 1500 4x4! If 7" inches of suspension lift is a little too high we also offer shorter lifts available elsewhere on our website. Please note, at this time CST only offers one rear lift option for use with their 7" Front Lift, the CST 4" Lift Rear Box Kit. The CST 4" Lift Rear Box Kit included with the 7" kit will level most Ram 1500 trucks front to rear.
CST does not include shock absorbers with this 7" suspension lift. Please note that extended length front and rear shock absorbers will be required when installing this CST 7" lift. Use of the correct length (slightly longer) front shock will dramatically improve the ride and handling. To help ensure the ride and handling matches the trucks great looks PerformanceLifts.com recommends the CST "CSR" Series shock absorbers. For that reason PerformanceLifts.com currently only offers the CST part number CSR-1200 front shock designed specifically for use with this CST 7" Lift. The CST Front shock is designed by CST for use with their CST 7" lift and fits better than any other option we have found. We do however offer Bilstein, Rancho and ProComp rear shocks for use with this lift. Shock absorbers can be purchased using the selection boxes located above this item description.
Tire & Wheel Info:
This kit will not work with factory 17" diameter wheels and larger than factory size tires. Aftermarket wheels with less back space than factory wheels are required. CST recommends using a 17" or larger diameter wheel that is 8" or 9" wide. Wheels 10" or wider are not recommended but can be used. Wheel back space must not exceed 5.00" inches when running 17" or 18" diameter wheels or tire sidewall to suspension component clearance issues may occur! PerformanceLifts.com has a number of 2013 Ram 1500 owners running the factory 20" wheels without a wheel spacer. When running the factory Dodge 20" wheel the tire width must not exceed 12" inches or a 305 mm. Most 20" or larger diameter wheels may be used as long as the back space does not exceed 5.50" inches.
This lift has been installed, tested, and successfully held an alignment on the 2013 and new 2014 model year Ram with no installation or alignment issues typically found in some other lesser quality kits now on the market. Customers are also pleasantly surprised when they learn the truck rides as nice as it looks! This kit does replace the coil springs but in most cases still provides a very smooth and comfortable highway and freeway ride. This kit will not fit US Spec 2500 or 3500 series Ram trucks. This kit will only fit Ram 1500 2wd trucks equipped with the 4.7L or 5.7L Hemi.
