Anybody know if a 09-11 leveling kit/spacer will fit on the 2012s? I was asking KORE if their CVs would work with the 2012s and they said dodge changed the front suspension on the 2012 from the pumpkin out. Thanks guys

I would say no... since the years say 2009-2011 different suspension .. lol. Give it some more time and theyll come out with more stuff for the 2012.Almost every website Ive looked at stops at 2011. they are still going through guinea pig stages i think. Why a spacer?

I actually just asked this same question yesterday in an email I sent to Rough Country about there 09-11 leveling kit.
I got a reply today which said yes it will fit the 2012 as long as its 4x4 1500.

My only thing now is to decide do we use the 2" or the 2.5". I'm kinda leaning toward the 2" since I will be hauling a trailer once in a while.

GreyChevy, the 09-11 spacers should work. Dodge has changed the drivetrain significantly for '12 and '13, and added airbag suspension for '13, but the '12 suspension should be the same. If you are looking for long travel CVs, give the guys at RCV a call.

Moparnutt340: go with the 2" leveling setup. I've heard of too many issues with the CVs on 2.5" lifts.
