Bilstein 2009 - 2018 Ram 1500 4x4 Adjustable Lift Front Shock Kit # 47-242548

OCTOBER 2018 Update: Bilstein is now months behind on production of this part number. Call or e-mail to reserve this item as it will sell out quickly once we receive our shipment!


This Bilstein adjustable spring seat shock absorber has an ingeniously simple coil spring seat system that allows you to adjust the front ride height of your 2009 - 2018 model year Ram 1500 4x4. Please note that this item only fits 4wd models and will NOT fit the updated 2019 Ram trucks. By moving a snap ring up or down the machined shock body you can increase or decrease the spring pre-load, thereby providing more or less lift height. The Bilstein 6112 Series Adjustable Lift Height shock # 47-242-548 can provide up to approximately 2.50" of lift using the tallest setting on a Gasoline engine equipped truck and approximately 2.25" on the EcoDiesel equipped models.

This Bilstein Ram 1500 4x4 front shock and spring kit # 47-242548 is a relatively new product from Bilstein. This shock and spring package is your absolute best bang-for-the-buck leveling kit option for the 2009 - 2018 Ram 1500 trucks. You can lift and level your truck without causing the hyper-extension problems common with spacer style kits. Even better, you can get rid of the crummy factory shock and spring and replace it with the all new Bilstein 6112 series shock package. The Bilstein 47-242548 will provide better on and off-road ride, an increase in suspension ride height that you can select, so no matter how you look at it this is a win-win situation. This is an excellent alternative to high priced replacement coilovers!
