2022 RAM 2500 Lift Kits

2" Leveling Kits: These kits are designed to take advantage of the RAM HDs stout factory suspension. Designed to raise the front 2" to level out the stance, this kit uses a pair of heavy-duty steel fabricated coil spacers allowing clearance for 35" tires to be installed. The spacers are pitched and indexed to work with the unique coil mount design of the late model RAM HD trucks and are secured to the coil bucket to maintain proper indexing when the coil springs are unloaded. With the additional ride height, the front bump stops are replaced with taller polyurethane units to control suspension compression. Rounding out these leveling kits is your choice of BDS NX2 gas series or FOX 2.0 IFP performance gas shocks at all four corners to improve ride quality. Rear ride height sensor brackets will be included with AirRide equipped models.

3" Radius Arm Lift Kits: These 3" lift kits lift and level the stance with room for 35" tires. They use a pair of (diesel specific) progressive rate 3" coil springs to provide the extra height and offer controlled performance in the harshest of terrains. A high-strength adjustable track bar with a center pinch-bolt turnbuckle is supplied to re-center the front axle along with extended length sway bar links, and extended polyurethane bump stops. To correct the front suspension geometry at the new height a pair of heavy-duty replacement radius arms bolt directly into the factory location. These new radius arms are a massive upgrade to the factory stamped units, using tubular construction and a lower cam adjustment to dial in the front end caster. Also supplied are your choice of BDS NX2 gas shocks or FOX 2.0 performance series IFP gas shocks for improved ride and performance. In the rear of the 2500 kits are 1.25" steel fabricated coil spacers to level out the stance and maintain load capacity along with extended length sway bar links, rear bump stop extensions, a rear track bar, and your choice of gas shocks. AirRide equipped models will include rear ride height sensor brackets.

4-6" Radius Arm Lift Kits: These 4"/6" (diesel) and 4"/5.5" (gas) lift kits options are designed to lift and level the stance with clearance for up to 37" tires. They use a pair of full-length progressive rate coil springs to provide extra height and smooth controlled performance. A forged drop pitman arm is supplied to correct steering angles along with an HD bar drop bracket to re-center the front axle. A pair of sway bar drop brackets to reposition the OE sway bar for optimal performance along with extended polyurethane bump stops to limit up travel and brake line brackets to allow full droop. To correct the front suspension geometry at the new height a pair of heavy-duty replacement radius arms bolt directly into the factory location. These new radius arms are a massive upgrade to the factory stamped units, using tubular construction and a lower cam adjustment to dial in the front end caster. Also supplied are your choice of BDS NX2 gas shocks or FOX 2.0 performance series IFP gas shocks for improved ride and performance.

At 4"+ of lift it is critical to correct the front driveline angle to maintain the use of the 4WD. To do this BDS Suspension provides a heavy-duty replacement transmission crossmember to allow clearance for the front driveline once indexed using the supplied transfer case indexing ring. In the rear of the RAM 2500 kits replacement progressive rate coil springs are used along with extended length sway bar links, rear bump stop extensions, a rear track bar, and your choice of gas shocks. AirRide equipped models will use a rear air-bag spacer and rear ride height sensor brackets to retain the full functionality of the air suspension.

4-6" 4-Link Lift Kits - These systems use a pair of progressive rate coil springs (4"/5.5" gas) or (4"/6" diesel) to provide the extra height and smooth controlled performance in the harshest of terrains. A forged drop pitman arm is supplied to correct steering angles along with an HD bar drop bracket to re-center the front axle. A pair of sway bar drop brackets to reposition the OE sway bar for optimal performance along with extended polyurethane bump stops to limit up travel and brake line brackets to allow full droop. To correct the front suspension geometry at the new height the factory stamped steel radius arms are converted over to 4-link using a pair of 1/4" steel brackets and high strength upper and lower control arms designed to limit caster control throughout suspension travel for more predictable handling characteristics. Also supplied are your choice of BDS NX2 gas shocks or FOX 2.0 performance series IFP gas shocks for improved ride and performance.

At 4”+ of lift it is critical to correct the front driveline angle to maintain the use of the 4WD. To do this BDS Suspension provides a heavy-duty replacement transmission cross member as well as a transfer case indexing ring to reposition the front driveline output to allow the use of the factory drivelines. In the rear of the RAM 2500 kits, progressive rate coil springs are supplied to level out the stance and improve capability across all terrains without affecting load capacity. Extended rear sway bar end links and new bump stops are included to compensate for the lift along with a track bar bracket to re-center the rear axle. Finishing out the rear are a matching set of BDS NX2 gas shocks or FOX 2.0 performance series IFP gas shocks. AirRide equipped models use a rear air-bag spacer and rear ride height sensor brackets to retain the full functionality of air suspension.

8" 4-Link Lift System: Designed for clearance of 38-40" tires, these 8" 4-link systems offer the stance and performance customers demand. Up front, these systems use a pair of 8" diesel specific progressive rate coil springs to provide the extra height and smooth controlled performance in the harshest of terrains. A forged drop pitman arm is supplied to correct steering angles along with an HD bar drop bracket to re-center the front axle. A pair of sway bar drop brackets to reposition the OE sway bar for optimal performance along with extended polyurethane bump stops to limit up travel and brake line brackets to allow full droop. To correct the front suspension geometry at the new height, the factory stamped steel radius arms are converted over to 4-link using a pair of 1/4" steel brackets and high strength upper and lower control arms designed to limit caster control throughout suspension travel for more predictable handling characteristics. Also supplied are your choice of BDS NX2 gas shocks or FOX 2.0 Performance Series IFP gas shocks for improved ride and performance.

At 8” of lift it is critical to make front driveline adjustments to maintain the use of 4WD due to the increased operating angle. To do this, BDS Suspension provides a heavy-duty replacement transmission cross member as well as a transfer case indexing ring to reposition the front driveline output which will need to be used in combination with an aftermarket front driveshaft (not included with the kit). In the rear, careful consideration was taken to design the system for load carrying capacity, handling, and ride quality. The factory coil positioning inside the frame rails is sufficient at smaller heights, but at 8" of lift needed to be modified to increase stability. The rear springs have been outboarded by 8" per side (16" total) using a set of bolt-on mounts. The new upper and lower coil seats locate off of existing features on the frame and axle, requiring only minor drilling for mounting hardware. The new position allows for a much shorter and more stable coil spring design. This virtually eliminates any chance of coil bowing and ensures the coils react predictably throughout the full range of travel. In addition to the coil springs/mounts, a new track bar relocation system is included to properly set the rear roll-center height and center the axle under the vehicle. The rear track bar relocation includes a new heavy-duty adjustable track bar. The track bar uses high-durometer polyurethane bushings at the frame and an adjustable forged COM bearing joint at the axle. Extended rear sway bar links round out the rear suspension components. Rounding out the rear of this kit is your choice of NX2 series or Fox 2.0 Performance Series gas shocks.


As with all BDS Suspension kits, these include Factory Protection Plus for a limited lifetime warranty, ESC System compatibility, and a 5-year, 100,000-mile drivetrain warranty. Get the look and the ride you are after with these new BDS lift kits for 2022 RAM 2500 4WD trucks.
