Lift your 2009-2017 Dodge Ram 1500 4wd 4 inches to achieve that "Ram Tough" look. ReadyLIFT® SST Lift Kits are the fastest, safest, least expensive way to mildly lift your vehicle at both ends. ReadyLift® SST Lift Kits go one step beyond our popular front leveling kits by providing the vehicle owner with the ability to lift the truck in the front and rear while maintaining a slight rake for towing or hauling. The unique design of the '09-17 Dodge Ram 1500 4WD suspension allows our innovative Smart Strut Technology mounts to fit right on top of both the front and rear struts. Then to limit droop we include a spring pre-load spacer which aids in achieving 4 inches of lift without increasing CV angles. Unlike urethane spacer kits that compress the springs and deteriorate over time, the ReadyLIFT® SST Lift Kit for the '09-17 Dodge Ram 1500 4WD feature CNC machined aircraft grade billet aluminum construction designed to last the life of the vehicle.
The Solution: MADE IN U.S.A - ReadyLIFT® 69-1040 SST Lift Kit is offered with our new Tubular Upper Control Arms, which resolve the common problem of the factory ball joint falling out of the stock control arm. This can occur when leveling your Ram 1500 4WD truck. This great leveling kit/UCA combination allows you to safely level your truck while insuring you will never have a ball joint problem. If you haven't heard about this problem and haven't experienced it YET, just do a search for it online and you will find out the factory ball joints chronically separate from the stock control arm. If you want to safely level your Ram truck, this is the only kit you will want to install on your truck.
The 69-1040 Dodge Ram 1500 lift kit also features a pair billet aluminum construction rear suspension coil spacers with integrated polyurethane sound isolators. This kit is designed specifically for the new Dodge Ram trucks. The strong strut extension/pre load spacer combo provides 4" of lift from stock in the front and 2" of lift in the rear. This creates a mild lifted stance slightly beyond level and includes a slight rake which is ideal for towing and hauling. This lift also allows the Dodge truck owner to install up to 35" tall off road tires without concern for clearance issues. For information about tire and wheel sizes please visit the ReadyLift Tire Sizing and Calculator Page. ReadyLIFT® strut extensions will maintain a smooth OEM ride without adding pressure to stock suspension components, guaranteed!
The 69-1040 kit also includes droop limiting bump stops and extensions designed to prevent the operator from over-extending the droop cycle that can occur during aggressive driving.
Not to be used with airbag systems.

Due to a design issue with Dodge Ram front differential and suspension, some owners may experience a vibration in the front end when in 4x4 mode, or a violent shaking vibration of the front wheels when going over a bump at speed. These two symptoms are often called a "death wobble", but actually appear to be two different problems with the Ram truck.
The 4HI mode vibration is a vibration or shudder that occurs when accelerating in 4x4 high mode. This affects Dodge Ram 1500 non mega cabs; Dodge couldn't discover why their stock trucks would do this for some customers. The solution for Dodge was to state that there is no problem and that all of the new Rams will shudder or shake when in 4x4 high. This symptom appears isolated to 2006-2011 1500 non-Mega Cab model trucks and when in 4-hi mode.
