DOR's 3" Suspension kit for your 3rd gen truck gives you the high quality parts to lift your truck the right way the first time, at a very affordable cost. Too often, Ram truck owners will buy a cheap kit because of the price and then spend the next couple of years replacing all of those cheap parts with good parts. We try to skip that step by giving you something that you can install and enjoy until you sell your truck or go with a bigger lift. Our 3" kit includes:
3" progressive rate coil springs for a nice soft ride and plenty of travel.
DOR's fixed length short arms, using 2" OD .250" wall DOM tubing for the biggest, strongest short arms on the market (upgradeable to offset arms or adjustable arms) which allow your axle to be pushed forward 1/2" of the stock position for better tire clearance and a better ride.
DOR adjustable track bar, made from 1.5" OD DOM tube with an FK uniball at the frame and a chromoly heim joint at the axle end, both using our custom machined 303 stainless misalignment spacers.
DOR 1" lift shackle for your rear suspension to give you a little extra height without the use of blocks or stiff mini-packs.
You can also add our huge 1.25" OD end links with 3/4" chromoly heims. These are not necessary for a 3" lift height, but they are a great upgrade if your stock end links are worn out.
Compare our kit to other 3" kits and you'll notice that many don't include upper and lower short arms; we include these on all kits because the axle does get pulled back with a 3" lift and creates an unstable feeling in the steering, plus you have less tire clearance than you really should have. The whole point of lifting the truck is to fit larger tires, so we like to move the axle forward just 1/2" and give you that extra room to fit 35" or 37" tires (depending on your wheel setup). As of 2021, we no longer provide shocks with suspension kits. You'll need to source your own.
This setup will provide your 2003 - 2009 Ram 2500/3500 4x4 truck with 3" lift up front, 1" lift in the rear, a level stance, a much softer ride than stock, and room for 35" or 37" tires. We only use the highest quality parts, no coil spacers or drop brackets or blocks, so you can install this suspension and enjoy it.
Our 3" short arm suspension offers more articulation than most long arm setups that cost twice as much money. If you want a suspension that works well and feels very comfortable on the highway, this is a great setup that offers a lot of value. We make everything in-house so you aren't paying for outsourcing, and that is why we are able to keep our prices down so much lower than other high-end suspension kits.
If you want this kit with long arms, we have a separate listing for that suspension package. Check out part number 3001-LA.
