2009 to 2018 Dodge Ram 1500 4WD Regular, Quad or Crew Cab Lowering Kit

The front suspension on the current series of Ram trucks had little change from the 2006 to 2008 models. The 4WD models stayed with a coil over strut system. In fact a lot of the parts carry over from the previous model years. Lower the 4WD models with spindles "At your own risk" due to drive axle issues once lowered.

The rear suspension on the other hand was converted to a trailing arm and coil system which provided a smoother ride while reducing the suspension weight. The rear suspension in the 4WD models is virtually the same and can be lowered with replacement coils in a variety of different heights. Keep in mind that some of these trucks feature air suspension that will prevent any except the most extreme lowering efforts.
