This CST 4" Lift Spindle is will fit all Dodge Ram 1500 Series 2wd trucks except the MegaCab models. The CST Fabricated Steel 4" Lift Spindles have been available to Ram 1500 2wd owners for quite a few years and they haven proven to be extremely reliable for on and off-road use. The only downside to the Fabricated spindle was its price. CST knows that price is important and they are proud to now offer this less expensive Cast Iron version. CST Performance Suspension engineers have been modifying and refining their spindles over the years and currently offer without a doubt the finest 4" through 7" Suspension Lift system currently available for the 2002-2014 2wd Dodge Ram 1500 pickup trucks. The CST CSS-D1-5 Cast Iron 4" Lift Spindles are made in the USA and are also Machined in the USA. The CSS-D1-5 spindles will lift the vehicle an honest 4 inches in the front and maintain the smooth stock ride! The CST 4" Lift spindles are stronger than the stock knuckles and also increase ground clearance under the front cross member by a full four inches. These CST Lift Spindles provide clearance for larger than stock tires and give your 2wd Ram more ground clearance than most lifted Ram 1500 4x4s! If 4" inches of lift is not enough, you can easily add a 1", 2" or 3" lift Daystar urethane coil spring spacer to achieve 5", 6" or 7" inches of total front suspension lift. All of these kit lift heights have been installed, tested, and have successfully held an alignment 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!
The CSS-D1-5 part number by itself includes one pair of CST 4" Cast Iron Lift Spindles and the necessary installation hardware. If your Dodge Ram 1500 2wd is a 2006 or newer model year CST recommends that you also purchase extended front brake hoses. Extended Front Brake Hoses are not included with the CSS-D1-5 part number. A Rear Suspension Lift is not included. Front or Rear Shock Absorbers are not included. This is the bare bones CST 4" Lift Spindle by themselves.

Tire & Wheel Info:
CST DOES NOT RECOMMEND THE USE OF STOCK DODGE WHEELS WHEN INSTALLING WIDER THAN STOCK TIRES. CST RECOMMENDS USE OF AN 8" TO 9" WIDE WHEEL WITH BACK SPACE NOT TO EXCEED 5.00 INCHES WHEN RUNNING LARGER THAN STOCK TIRES! CUSTOMERS WITH FACTORY 20" DODGE WHEELS CAN RUN UP TO A 12.00" WIDE (305 SERIES) TIRE BEFORE A WHEEL SPACER WILL BE REQUIRED. CUSTOMERS WANTING TO KEEP THEIR FACTORY 17" WHEELS WILL NEED A WHEEL SPACER TO PREVENT TIRE SIDEWALL TO CST LIFT SPINDLE CLEARANCE ISSUES.
Please read this!- Dodge engineers have designed the front suspension on this vehicle so that the front shock absorber is the only thing that limits the suspension travel. For this reason we recommend you either retain the OEM shocks or use a stock length front replacement shocks when installing this CST CSS-D1-5 Cast Iron 4" Lift Spindle. Using a significantly longer than stock front shock absorber can allow the front suspension to over-extend and this can allow the upper control arm to make contact with the frame rail. Allowing the front front suspension to over-extend can lead to upper ball-joint wear and eventually cause ball-joint failure. For these reasons the stock OEM shock or the CST CSR-1200 replacement shock is recommended by CST and PerformanceLifts.com. The CSS-D1-5 spindles will NOT fit Dodge Ram 1500 Mega Cab, Ram 2500 or Ram 3500 series trucks!
If you don't see a shock or lift combination that suits your needs please let PerformanceLifts.com put together a custom lift package for you!
