    hello I have a 2014 ram 2500 with 5.7 4×4 I have a different of about 3″ front to rear so I was looking for a 2.5″ leveling kit. Does ur kit lower the rear to make up for that .5″ do you have a 2.5″ kit ? What would you recommend for me to use. If I can I would like to soften up the ride also thanks

      Hey Mike,
      Based on the trucks we’ve measured/tested the trucks sit 1.5-2” tail high from the factory. Our leveling kit for the 2014 RAM 2500s is designed to lift the front 2” and 0” in the rear for a near level stance. Being that you’re truck sits 3” tall in the rear our leveling kit will still sit about 1” tail high.

      Hey Pete, we offer the 2” leveling kit with your choice of BDS-5500 or Fox 2.0 gas shocks to improve ride quality on road and off pavement.

    Is this kit compatible with the 2014 Ram 2500 Power Wagon models?

      Hey Preston, the PWs come from the factory with a taller ride height than the standard 2500s so we don’t recommend adding the 2” coil spacers without correcting the rest of the suspension geometry. Unfortunately we haven’t had the opportunity to bring in a 2014-2015 RAM 2500 Powerwagon into our R&D shop for test fit, but we have heard of several minor differences that would likely require some modification to adapt our standard kits to the PW. For more on the topic contact BDS tech support at (517) 279-2135

    I have a 2014 Ram 2500 and was looking to add this 2″ leveling kit. I see that it will fit 35″ tires. Will it only work with 17″ rims or could I add a 35×12.5-20? Wanting a better stance without doing a 4″ lift.

      Hey Bryan,
      larger wheels will fit with the leveling kit, you will want to follow our wheel width and backspacing measurements to ensure fitment without rubbing. To view other ’14-15 Ram 2500s head to our customer gallery at http://bds-suspension.com/bar and in the search tab type “695H” to view all the 2” leveling kit trucks.

    What would be the ideal wheel offset be for running 35×12.5×20 with this kit +20 or 0?

    1. Carter @ BDS Suspension
      Carter @ BDS Suspension at | | Reply

      @Matt, Offset measurement is dependent on the width of the wheel used. Running a 8”, 9”, 10” or 12” wide wheel will effect that offset measurement and what size tire we recommend running. Each wheel manufacturer measures offset a little differently which is why we typically go by the backspacing measurement. That said the 0 offset will stick the wheels/tires out farther than the +20 offset, which on the ’14-15 RAM 2500 with a 2” leveling kit we recommend a 35×12.50×20 on a 17×9 wheel with 5” backspacing (0 offset).

    I have a 2015 Ram 2500 4×4 with the Cummins. Will this application work for my model? If so, would 35×12.50 on 20×9 inch wheels need any modifications in order to run without rubbing at wheel lock on both ends? If so, what would be the proper wheel size to be able to run 35×12.50s without rubbing or trimming?

      Hey Brandon, this 2” leveling kit will fit your 2015 (press release was written before the 2015 models had been released). If you click the link to view the kit online we have more information on the wheel tire recommendations as well as MSRP and available options. The 2” leveling kit can fit up to 35×12.50 tires on 20×9 with 5” of backspacing. The tires are close and making contact and more aggressive tires (knobby sidewall) may require minor trimming to clear.

    Hey Carter,

    What is the tire and wheel size on the black Ram 2500 pictured on this blog? They look to be 37s? Is there more than a leveling kit installed on that vehicle? I have a 2014 Ram 2500 and I want to install this kit on it with 35×12.5x17s on Raceline Monster wheels, 17×9, +0 offset. Will that work?

      The truck on the announcement is running 35×12.50x17s. You can see other new RAM 2500s running the 2” leveling kit and 35s at http://bds-suspension.com/bar and under the search field type 695H or 694H (2” leveling kit IDs for new RAM 2500/3500 trucks). 17×9 w/ 0 offset is roughly a 5” backspacing so you should be able to install them with no issue.

    I have a 2014 ram 2500 diesel. I really don’t wanna level it out because I tow and frankly i like the ass high look. But I’m looking to raise the entire truck about 3 inch. Is there a kit available that will retain the same offsets front and back

      Hey Wesley, thanks for your interest in BDS Suspension and for reaching out to us about kit options. Our typical lift kits are designed to level the stance and eliminate the factory tail high stance. That said our kits are packaged into individual box kits so customizing the rear with a taller box kit is easy to do from your local BDS dealer, its just not something our website is set up to do. We offer a 3″ front radius arm kit that you could use in the front as well as a separate 2.5″ rear lift (from our 4″ kits) that will retain your rear tail high stance. We offer the rear 2.5″ lift with both rear coil spacers to retain the rear coils as well as progressive rate coil springs to improve on-road/off-road ride quality, suspension travel, and load capacity. Our sales team is available to give you a list of part numbers needed at (517) 279-2135 or you can head to your local BDS distributor so they can customize you the kit, http://bds-suspension.com/distributor-lookup

    I have 2013 ram 2500 I want to know if this will work 35×12.50×22 This wheels have a -44 offset And my tuck has a 2.5 leveling kit Will this work

    1. Carter @BDS Suspension
      Carter @BDS Suspension at | | Reply

      Hey Josh, difficult to say without knowing the width of the wheels. The -44 offset is relative to the wheel width, we spec our wheel specs based on the backspacing measurement. the pre-2014 RAM 2500 trucks sat a bit lower from the factory than the 2014-2016 trucks due to a different suspension design. Based on our 2″ leveling kit for the ’03-13 RAM 2500 we recommend 33×12.50 tires on 9″ wide (5″ BSing) wheels. While other sizes may be able to be used, trimming and additional modification may be necessary.

    Hey I have a 14 ram 3500 diesel with your 6″ lift with the fox 2.0 shocks but it still sits rear end high, im running 37×12.5×18 tire and they are still rubbing a bit in the front. Can I still throw a 2.5″ levelling spacer kit in there without replacing my shocks ?

      Hey Robert,
      while the front end can accept a leveling spacer with that kit installed, I’d recommend talking to BDS sales/tech support on other parts recommended to upgrade. I’d also recommend contacting them with measurements to figure out is the front end is sitting lower than it should or the rear end is sitting higher than it should. They’ll want measurements from the center of the hub up to the top of the wheelwell opening. You shouldn’t have trouble fitting 37″ tires with that kit, even on a 10-12″ wide wheel. You can reach tech support at (517) 279-2135 or tech-bds@sporttruckusainc.com
