**Please note: This lift is only applicable to the following trucks- 2013+ Dodge Ram 3500 4WD **

BDS Suspension continues to lead the industry with new and innovative products for late model RAM trucks. Their latest release, complete 6″ suspension lift kits for the 2013+ RAM 3500 4WD trucks is the first lift kit of its kind to hit the market.
This new 6″ lift system uses a pair of 1/4″ thick steel radius arm relocation brackets to reposition the factory radius arms and correct suspension geometry and caster at 6″ of lift. These brackets are designed for quick installation and create a stout mounting location for the radius arms by tying into both the factory radius arm frame mount and the side of the frame rails.
The additional height comes from a pair of specially designed progressive rate ProRide coil springs. The 6″ coils have been engineered and tested to improve the ride quality and performance across all terrains while holding up to the rigors that 1-ton truck owners demand. A heavy duty track bar relocation bracket is included to recenter the front axle once lifted as well as a forged drop pitman arm to correct steering angles. Sway bar relocation brackets are used to reposition the front sway bar assembly and the supplied brake line brackets allow for the easy adjustment for the stock lines to be reused with the lift kit.
With the redesigned front end of these trucks, the 6″ lift requires transmission/transfer case relocation components to allow the front driveshaft to function properly. BDS includes a new laser cut transmission crossmember and adjustable transmission mounting plate to increase clearance. The transfer case is repositioned by way of a supplied indexing ring kit to correct the operating angle of the front driveshaft. (*indexing ring fits 6-bolt transmissions only, will not fit optional 8-bolt RAM 4500 transmissions).
The rear of the truck is lifted via a 5″ block and u-bolt system which provides a level-to-slightly tail high stance. The kit includes your choice of BDS-5500 hydraulic or Fox 2.0 performance shocks to offer a great ride and improved dampening performance. This kit allows for 37″ tires to be installed.
