6” Lift Kit— 2012 Dodge Ram 1500 4WD
Coldwater, MI—December 8, 2011— 2012 Dodge Ram 1500 4WD truck owners can rejoice; BDS Suspension has a new 6″ suspension lift kit available. Based on the popular high clearance kit design, the lift is designed to fit the new front differential assembly in the 2012 models. The kit centers around a pair of one-piece, 1/4″ laser cut high clearance crossmembers, tied together by the differential skid plate, designed to improve ground clearance and off-road capabilities.
The replacement steering knuckles reduce installation time as well as maintain proper steering and ball joint angles. A differential skid plate is included for off road protection. The system also includes bump stop drops, anti-sway bar links, 3 point differential drop system, strut relocation brackets, and front stainless steel brake lines.
Due to the OE ride height variances, BDS allows you to customize your desired stance by offering both 3″ or 5″ rear Pro-Ride coils that are capable of being smashed totally flat and will come back to normal ride height. The rear for this Dodge Ram lift kit is completed with a track bar bracket, upper link relocation brackets, and sway bar links.
Rear 5500 series hydraulic shock absorbers are included with BDS by Fox 2.0 series gas shocks available as an upgrade.
Improved geometry is achieved with ductile iron, CNC machined steering knuckles which are supplied to ease installation as well as work perfectly with the new BDS crossmembers. There is no change in turning radius, and the system works with the factory stability control system.
The rear is lifted with BDS Pro-Ride coil springs that are capable of being smashed totally solid and still coming back to normal ride height. In addition, rear bump stop extensions and control arm relocation brackets are included to properly lift the rear of your Dodge.
