BDS Suspension 8" Long Arm Kit for the 2008 3/4 Ton & 1 Ton 4WD Pickup.
This 8" long arm kit includes progressive rate, frontPro-Ride Coil Springs and heavy duty, long upper and lower control arms. The lift kit includes solid upper long arms and tubular lowers to reduce caster change through wheel travel creating a more controlled feeling in the steering wheel both on and off road. This 4-Link long arm system retains the factory triangulation of the arms as well which adds to the stability of the suspension system. What does this mean? Basically it drives great both on and off road. All four control arms are greasable for long term performance.
A dropped forged pitman arm is included to maintain the factory steering angles. A track bar relocation bracket properly centers the axle under the vehicle. Extended bump stops and sway bar links maintain the OE characteristics.
The rear of the Dodge Ram is lifted via a 5" block kit or optional Glide-Ride Leaf Springs.
Not only is the kit designed to last, but so is the finish. Every bracket and control arm is powder coated black for long term performance.
