    I’ve been waiting for this product since 2014 when I got my 1500 Longhorn, but I have a question, is there any rubbing or something in the lowest height using 35×12.5 and the specified 20×9 (5 bs) wheels? Because I think when I’m in the highway the height goes down by itself to reduce fuel consumption, also to leave the car it goes down by itself.
    By the way, that’s for being the first company to design something for the air suspension Ram

    Hi I have the 2015 RAM 1500 eco-diesel with the factory air-suspension (I believe you call it air-ride) its the Longhorn Laramie with a short box 5’7″. If I understand correctly I have a payload of 1360 lbs, I am pretty sure its well under rated. What I want to do is add a camper that is made for the short box, but its wet-weight is 2300 lbs’. So without having to buy another truck is there something I can do to increase my payload or decrease the affects of the new load such as, over sized brakes, beefier tires, or the suspension kit you have out for the 2015’s with air ride.

    GVWR 6950 LB / 3153 KG

    GAWR FRONT 3900 lb with tires P 275/60R20
    REAR 3900 lb with tires P 275/60R20

    I should have though of this before I bought the truck, and the wife will kill me if I have to spend more money on a bigger truck. Please help….

    Thanks Carter (hope that’s your first name) can I ask what you mean “our suspension lift is designed to retain the stock air bags and uses top mounted steel spacers which won’t add or take away from the load capacity” I am not much of a mechanic.

    I was thinking keep the same air-bag, add your suspension kit (to prevent the truck from bottoming out due to increased load or a sudden excessive load say from hitting a pot-hole), heavier braking system say brakes from the 2500 or 3500 if they fit, plus heavier load rated tires.

    Your thoughts

    Hey I have a 2016 ram longhorn 1500 with air ride and I recently installed the bds 4″ kit and now the air ride doesn’t work properly. It works sometimes but takes along time to reach off-road 1 and won’t reach off road 2. The error messages show up and reads immediate repair required or it says max payload and won’t work. I have taken it to dodge and they looked into it after charging me almost 500 dollars because they won’t cover it because I modified it and they think there might be a air restriction problem. Don’t know what to do. I took it back to the shop I had it done and they couldn’t figure it out. They want to see it again but I am afraid they will screw it up more. Any suggestions

    I have a 2014 Ram 1500 Sport with the Air Ride Suspension. I also think a 2″ Lift would be a good option for the truck. It would give you 0″ – 4″ lift range when coupled with the Factory Air Suspension. Your normal ride height would be 2″ up over stock with the ability to go to 4″ when in “Off-Road” 2 mode. “Aero” Mode would be 1″ up which could still help with fuel economy.

    I’d Buy It!

    Hey, Carter, a question for you. You wrote in one of the replies above that the 4″ air ride lift kit retains the ride quality and allows the suspension to function as it does from the factory with ride height adjustment from between roughly 2 to 6” of lift. But am I right that a 2″ you would have to be in entry/exit mode, and that you can only stay in the mode at relatively low speeds? In other words, with your kit installed, is there any way to keep the truck at 2″ at driving speed? I would likely never want to be higher than that except in off-road driving.

    Hi – I am interested in getting this suspension lift kit for my 2016 RAM 1500 Limited with Air Leveling Suspension, but I have a few questions:

    1) The Rear lift is 2.5 inches – is it possible to ONLY lift the front 2.5 inches or max 3.0 inches with different spacers as I want to keep the truck rake the same as stock using your kit?
    2) I am waiting for AMP Research to release their PowerSteps for my truck as they advised, the 2016 RAMs are marginally different where the 2016s have a SRS fixed bracket that requires AMP to remold their PowerSteps for the 2016 RAMs – will this be a factor with the BDS Air-Ride suspension lift kit?
    3) I live in Coconut Creek Fl, 33073 – what truck shops do you recommend that resells your BDS systems – I need multiple shops to compare to

    1) Will the 4″ lift impact the turning radius of the truck? I have seen some guys mention this in the online forums.

    2) I want to use a 35″ or 34″ x 12.50″ tire. Most likely KO2’s. What backspacing and/or offset would I use if I want more of a ‘tucked under’ look vs a more aggressive stance? I don’t mind if they stick out…. just not 2 or 3 inches.

    3) Will this lift level the truck or will it have the same rake as from the factory?

    How does the Air Ride lift compare in terms of ride quality (primarily on the road) compared to a 4″ BDS coil spring lift in the same truck? I’m wondering if the coil spring setup with specifically tuned shocks front and rear for the much heavier 35 x 12.50 would ride better. I love the Air Ride, just making sure there is not a noticeable difference between air and coils.

    I recently was in an accident with my 2014 ram 1500 long horn 4 corner air suspension w/ 4″ BDS lift. Following the accident the repair shop was not able to get my trucks alignment within spec and the tech who tried to align mentioned that the front axles were spaced differently in relation to the front cross-member (this same tech had aligned my truck 4 months earlier and had it within spec and didnt mention anything about the spacing between the front axles and the front cross-member. Additionally I have been experiencing issues with the truck shifting into 4WD. The repair shop said they could not find any “apparent” damage to the differential mounting brackets and that there was no impact to the tires. They also said they thought it weird that one of the brackets attached to and engine mount allowing it to move with the engine…?

    my question is this:
    1. How fragile is the lift kit differential modification? What sort of force would be necessary to cause damage?
    2. What is the typical spacing/ tolerance between the front axles and the front cross-member with the lift installed? ( they said it could rub if i was to take the truck off road)

    While I really like the looks of the 4″ kit on the Rams, is there any plan to make maybe a 2″ kit, maybe with front and rear spacers, like on a leveling kit, used in conjunction with different length sensor links? Possibly to get it to ride at the “off road 2” height while on the normal setting. But maintaining stock ride quality. And have it under $500?

I imagine “Normal Ride Height” is 4″ above factory, but what is the speed limit before it goes down into Aero mode? And is aero mode 0.5″ below the new lifted ride height or does it take it down to original factory ride height?
