If you're looking for a Ram 1500 DT 2" Lift Kit, then look no further. We've done the research, the design and the testing to bring you the lift kit that all the other dealers are now using.
This kit is for the Ram 1500 DT (2019+ model) and will suit all models that don't have air suspension.
Australia stands tall!
SCD American Vehicles worked with King Springs to designs Australia's first ever 2" lifted coils for the Ram 1500 DS back in 2015, and have sold thousands of sets since.
We have a few options for 2" lifted coils so you can have the most optimised set up for your Ram 1500.
When we were working with King Springs, we wanted to have options for the different Ram set ups that our customers have.
All installations include a Wheel Alignment which is paramount when you change front suspension on the Ram 1500's.
The Foundation - Coils
Once upon a time it was all about coil spacers to lift your vehicle, which is not exactly the best way to lift the vehicle. So we offer 2" lifted coils for the front & rear to pop it up and make the Ram look great.
All Ram vehicles are designed with a 1" rake in the rear for aero dynamics but also because they are a tow vehicle in the United States - as soon as you put a caravan or trailer on the back they would level out. By levelling out the front to match the rear, your vehicle will be back heavy as soon as you throw something on to the tow hitch unless you put in the Airbag Man airbags in the rear coils.
We offer a full Lifetime Warranty against sagging and breakage to give you peace of mind.
Front Coil Options
We provide a 2" lifted coil that has a 10% increase in the spring rate to the stock coils. This additional spring rate is perfect to help support the front of the vehicle when a bullbar is added. Currently we do not provide an option for a higher spring rate to the front.
Rear Coil Options
There are 3 options for the rear coils:
- 20% increase rate is the standard rate and accounts for 60% of our installations
- 40% increase rate is our Heavy Duty and suited for those vehicles which are generally under load. This is recommended for those who have a tray or canopy on the back of their Ram.
- 60% increase rate is our Extra Heavy Duty coil that is for those who want the SCD GVM Upgrade or who are constantly under load and towing.
Coils are what carries the weight, but the shocks are what controls the weight as your vehicle moves around. There are a few shock options to consider with your 2" lift.
You can utilise your stock shocks which are a fantastic shock for 90% of driving. It's worth noting that the stock shocks will be losing 50mm (2") of travel so you are more prone to 'topping out' or 'bottoming out' if doing some offroading and your suspension is pushed to its limits. If you're doing predominately highway / on road driving then this is a great option, but if you plan on doing more than the odd beach trip or hitting some dirt, then it's recommended you get some Bilstein or Radflo shocks.
Here at SCD American Vehicles we are huge fans of Bilstein's shocks. We use the Bilstein 5100's which are a slightly longer shock. These were developed by Bilstein for vehicles that have been lifted and will endure off-road applications without compromising ride quality for the highway. We have sold thousands of Bilstein shocks and all of our customers are stoked with them. The Bilstein front struts are height adjustable that allow us to alter the ride height on the front of the vehicle with an adjustable coil spring collar, allowing factory ride height, up to about 2.5” of lift (depending on application) using factory coil springs.
If you want the best possible ride quality, then look no further at the Radflo Remote Reservoir, Compression Adjustable suspension.
SCD decided to work with Radflo as they are still assembled by hand to ensure optimum quality and performance. They were also the only company willing to custom design & valve the shocks for Australian roads, unlike other major brands which are designed for the smooth concrete highways in the United States.
Our Radflo shocks have a remote (or external) reservoir that increases fluid capacity, which in turn helps lower fluid temperature to eliminate shock fade. This provides you with a longer lasting shock that will provide you the ability to punch through rough terrain in comfort.
These Radflo shocks also have compression adjusters, allowing you to make the shocks a bit softer when you're not loaded. On the flip side, when you have loaded your Ram up with some extra weight, you tighten the shocks to be able to control the weight. A simple twist of the nozzle will now see your fully loaded Ram have it's optimum control on the road.
The Radflo front struts come with a longer coil as well, so you only need the King Springs 2" rear coils as part of the kit.
