Question 2004 Ram 1500 QC 4x4 Leveling Question

Hello all. I have a 2004 Dodge Ram 1500 Quad Cab 4x4 with the Hemi. It has around 80k original on the odometer. It is time for new tires so I am planning the following upgrades:

BF Goodrich All-Terrain KO2's on factory 20's
Bilstein BE5-6140-T5 front shocks
Bilstein BE5-6248-H5 rear shocks
ReadyLift 66-1000 torsion key front leveling kit

Of course I will be ordering the 98108G bushings and 423730 sleeves to go with the shocks.

My question is about the leveling kit and possible front end vibration as a result? I have read that it only occurs when in 4WD and at low speeds. Is this true with my truck as well? Mine has the AWD transfer case so the front shafts are always turning. I certainly don't want to install a leveling kit for appearance reasons at the cost of a vibration that might be existent all of the time. I would certainly appreciate the advice of members who have done this type of upgrade before spending a ton of money only to be disappointed.


Thanks in advance and Happy 4th!

you should be fine with the kit. I just installed a leveling kit in RAM4 truck and he has no issues with his.
