Please note, this lift does not fit MegaCab 1500 models! A complete CST 4" Suspension Lift will consist of a pair of CST 4" Lift Spindles, Rear Lift Blocks and U-Bolts. Extended Length Front Brake Hoses are optional. As an option we also offer additional upgrades such as extended length rear shock absorbers. Optional upgrades include a 1" or 2" Lift Coil Spring Spacer and front shock absorbers.
CST now offers two different 4" Lift Spindles for the 2009+ 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 using 1018 Sheet Steel and are stronger than the OEM parts they replace. The CSS-D1-5 Spindles are also built in the USA but are Cast Iron and slightly less expensive than the Fabricated Steel Version. Both of CST's 4" Lift spindles provide a major increase in ground clearance that gives the 2wd Ram 1500 more ground clearance than a same height lifted Ram 1500 4x4! The CST 4" lift spindles are designed to lift the vehicle an honest 4" inches in the front and retain a stock like ride. If 4" inches of lift is not enough you can easily add a 1" or 2" Urethane Coil Spring Spacer to achieve 5" or 6" of total front suspension lift height. This means you can build your own custom 4", 5", or 6" suspension lift for your Ram 1500 2wd to get it looking exactly how you want it!
This lift has been installed, tested, and 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! This kit does NOT replace the coil springs and for this reason retains a very smooth and comfortable ride.
To purchase a complete kit you must select from a number of options. The basic 4" kit includes ONLY the CST 4" Lift Spindles. A 1", 1.5" or 2" Rear Lift Block Kit will be necessary to level the truck front to rear. Installing the CST 4" Lift Spindles alone will cause the front to be higher than the back. When lifting the front 4" inches over stock you may need either a 1" or 1.5" rear lift block kit to help achieve a level stance front to rear. Rear shocks are not required when running a 1" or 1.5" rear block height. If you intend to increase the front lift height to 5" or 6" you will need to purchase the optional 1" or 2" urethane coil spring spacer and also a taller rear block lift. Extended length rear shock absorbers are recommended when the rear of the truck will be lifted 2" inches or higher. Selecting the correct front lift height and rear lift block kit is important if you want to level your vehicle front to back. PerformanceLifts.com suggests you measure the difference in height between the front and rear when the truck is parked on level ground. Using the difference in height you can select a rear block kit that best provides the stance you want. For example... if your stock Ram is 3.00 inches lower in the front than the rear, a 4" front lift would require a 1" rear block lift to achieve a level stance. In this case you would select the 1" Rear Block & U-Bolt Kit.
Tire & Wheel Info:
This kit will not work with factory 17" wheels and larger than factory size tires. Aftermarket wheels with less back space than factory wheels are required. CST recommends using an 17" or larger diameter wheel that is 8" or 9" wide wheel with this kit. Wheel back space must not exceed 5.50" inches when running 17" or 18" diameter wheels. Customers running 20" or larger diameter wheels may use a wheel with up to 5.50" inches of back space. We do have customers using the factory 20" Dodge wheel and up to 305 series tires without a wheel spacer. Please check for clearance before driving the vehicle.
Please read this!- Dodge engineers have designed the front suspension on this vehicle so that the front shock absorber prevents the front suspension from over-extending. For this reason if you decide to replace your factory shock it is important that the correct length front shock is used. The rear shock length we provide will be correct to work with the rear block lift height that you select. The Bilstein, CST, and Rancho RS5000 or RS9000XL shocks bolt right on with no additional modifications required to install. This kit will not fit Mega Cab or 2500 / 3500 series Ram trucks! Please note, this kit has been verified to fit all 2006, 2007 and 2008 Dodge Ram 1500 2wd trucks.
