Looking for a good place online to buy 6" Suspension Kit
jesus, what do you want to put that on for? what model of ram do you have? i got a 13 sport and i am looking for a performance chip if you know of any.
I dont know of any online but these guys pretty much do all the lifts around red deer
I have a 6 inch lift on my 2012 and I love it. Have you thought about buying directly from the manufacturer? BDS and Rough Country make decent kits for a good price.
how much of a fuel difference when you lifted it?
can you post a pic?
Lifting a daily driver is probably one of the worst things you can do, plus it can void any driveline warranty.
which kit comes with the free white oakleys?
I thought those came free with an Alberta drivers license?
Every one in there dog has them not just people with lift kits
Why would I need them? Lame joke is lame
I didn't notice much of a difference at all.
Depends what you use your truck for. Warranty is not an issue if you get the work done at the dealership.
it doesnt look nearly as high as i was expecting. looks nice.
And if youre in a collision your insurance probably won't cover you.
I've never heard of that. So you mean to tell me if a person buys a brand new truck with a lift kit installed and gets into a wreck your insurance company won't cover you?
I should probably add that I drive a truck with a 4" lift, came with the truck, I hate it. It's slower, harder on gas, harder on brakes, axles, u-joints, diffs...just adds so much extra wear and tear on everything.
happy with my 2" level
Not if they can say that the lift altered the handling in any way.
Also that and bumpers are designed to meet a certain collision height standard in order to minimize damage and injury.
i've met alot of people with lifts and this is the first i am hearing of it.
I did hear that there was a limit to height! Because of collisions and high center of gravity. But was told that 4-6" lift kits were not a issue.
The important thing to do is report the modifications to the insurance company.
Just got off the phone with my insurance company and I'm all good, I think you guys are reaching when it comes to the kits being discussed here. A 4 inch lift should not place any drivetrain components under extra strain that would actually be noticeable to maintenance cost. With any modification it is important to weigh out the pro's and con's. For me it's the places I go for work and to fish that makes it worth while.
Maybe I don't understand, but doesn't your axle stay at the same height...? If so how does it provide any benefit for accessing work/fishing holes, you're still going to catch up on the same shit? I guess you can put on bigger tires due to the addtional gap between the tire and fender which would result in additional ground clearance...?
There are two types of lifts are there not?
Body and suspension...suspension will actually give you more ground clearance from my understanding. At least it will on my ATV lol.
Al's right, you need to do a lift to be able to get larger tires under it.
if you just do suspension or body, the axle still rides at the same height
It also improves clearance under belly and better approach/departure angles at bumpers. Its the tires that decreases fuel mileage mostly too, not the height.
Do you have a set of nuts hanging of the trailer hitch as well?
Came to post this + rep.
Did you ever decide on a kit? Now that my boy is getting bigger I avoid using my truck to haul the family around at any cost lol. Tough getting him in and out.
It would appear he posted a pic of the truck lifted back in 2013
Really? Where? Post your ride thread?
When you apply for insurance the policy asks if the vehicle is modified in any way. If you say no and it is, there is grounds for voiding the policy. If you say no and it isn't and a week later you do it, if you don't notify them, that is a material change in risk, and the policy is again voidable.
The insurance company however usually has to prove that if you had said yes, or that if you had notified them after, that it would have changed the outcome. Ie they would not have insured you/Cancelled your insurance, or they would have charged you more.
If you were driving down the road the body fell off the frame, they might inquire, and possibly deny your coverage, but would not pay for your upgrades.
If you were driving down the road and hit some ice and hit a telephone pole and wrote the truck off they would probably still cover you, but would not give you back the value of the upgrades.
If you were driving down the road, hit some ice and took out a group of kids playing street hockey, you'd probably be fine.
At the end of the day, you'd most likely be fine, but is saving a few bucks a month worth the chance of losing a whole lot of bucks?
Aw fuck, it was YOUR post I saw
Where is the cheapest place to buy a dodge 2 1/2 inch levelling kit ..? .. I see them on eBay for 40-60 dollars plus about 50 shipping ..
Jesus, how much cheaper do you want?
