ReadyLift 2009 - 2017 Ram 1500 4x4 SST Suspension Lift Kit # 69-1040. ReadyLift offers one of the most complete and least expensive 4" suspension lift systems for your 2009-2017 Dodge Ram 1500 4wd truck. ReadyLIFT SST Lift Kits are the fastest, safest, and least expensive way to mildly lift your vehicle at both ends. ReadyLift SST Lift Kits go one step beyond our popular front leveling kits by providing the vehicle owner with the ability to lift the truck in the front and rear while maintaining a slight rake for towing or hauling. The unique design of the 2009 - 2017 Dodge Ram 1500 4WD suspension allows the innovative Smart Strut Technology mounts to fit right on top of the front struts. Then to limit droop ReadyLift includes a spring pre-load spacer which aids in achieving 4 inches of lift without increasing CV angles. Unlike urethane spacer kits that compress the springs and deteriorate over time, the ReadyLIFT SST Lift Kit for the '09-17 Dodge Ram 1500 4WD feature CNC machined aircraft grade billet aluminum construction designed to last the life of the vehicle.

The included ReadyLift Upper Control Arms resolve the common problem of the factory ball joint pulling out of the stock control arm when a lift or leveling kit has been installed. This ReadyLift kit allows you to safely lift your truck while insuring you will never have a ball joint pull-through problem. If you haven't heard about this problem and haven't experienced it YET, just do a search for it online and you will find out the factory ball joints chronically separate from the stock control arm. The 69-1040 Dodge Ram 1500 lift kit also features a pair billet aluminum construction rear suspension coil spacers with integrated polyurethane sound isolators.

This kit is designed specifically for the new Dodge Ram trucks. The strong strut extension/pre load spacer combo provides 4" of lift from stock in the front and 2" of lift in the rear. This creates a mild lifted stance slightly beyond level and includes a slight rake which is ideal for towing and hauling. This lift also allows the Dodge truck owner to install up to 35" tall tires. ReadyLIFT strut extensions are designed to help maintain a smooth OEM ride without adding pressure to stock suspension components, guaranteed! The 69-1040 kit also includes droop limiting bump stops and extensions designed to prevent damage caused from over-extending the suspension during aggressive driving.

Due to a design issue with Dodge Ram front differential and suspension, some owners may experience a vibration in the front end when in 4x4 mode. The 4-HI mode vibration is a vibration or shudder that occurs when accelerating in 4x4 high mode. This can affect any Dodge Ram 1500 non-MegaCab model from 2006 to 2011.  Dodge never did fully disclose why their stock trucks would do this for some customers. The solution for Dodge was to simply state that there is no problem and that all of the new Rams may shudder or shake when in 4x4 high. This symptom appears isolated to select 2006-2011 Ram 1500 trucks and only when operated in 4-hi mode.
