Lift/leveling kit?

Hey, i wanted to know what suspension comes stock on a Daytona edition Dodge Ram, i want to get a lift kit to level out the front with the rear, but i am concerned about the suspension, is it okay? Leaf springs, Coil sprigs? Anything would help! Thanks!IMG_20140420_185324.jpg

If you are just going to level the front with the back just tighten the torsion bars up. im pretty Shure I only went 2 turns on mine to put it level.

If it's 4x4 that will work.

Otherwise, nah. That one doesn't look like a 4x4, so a 2" to 2 1/2" level should do.

You can drop the rear about an inch and a half cheap with shackles.

You have a 4X4 so you should have the torsion bars up front. I was able to raise mine at least 2" by just tightening the bars. Good luck.

I had a 2005 Ram 1500 4WD and I went the less expensive route of lifting my truck using the stock keys to get it leveled. It leveled out fine but after riding in it for a while the ride was complete crap. I ended up going with a set of ReadyLIFT torsion keys 66-1000 and it DRASTICALLY improved the ride. I hate spending money when I don't have too but this was definitely worth it considering I maintained my factory ride.
