Well i decided it was time to lift my truck when i got the money. I bought a rancho 4" 2wd lift for only $400 from 4 wheel parts. It came with spindles, coils, 4 rancho 5000 shocks, longer front brake lines, lower a-arm drop bracket, rear block kit, and nuts and bolts. It is great, i just need to adjust the alignment tomorrow then it will be set. I also need to get 33" tires and 16" rims. Im glad because it doesnt effect my rear airbags at all. We did the front end last night from 3:00pm till 10:00pm then the rear end I did thursday from 2:00pm till 5:00pm. It was really simple and fun.

Oh and i have 4 stock shocks, the spindles, and coils all for sale.

did it out of my garage. Still holding up just fine, no problems yet. Well i did have on problem, the tires were rubbing up against the new spindles so i got some 1/4" wheel spacers and fixed that problem up fast.

Take a pic with the wheel spacers. Dang, at first I thought you had a 2500. This is exactly what I want to do to my truck and $400 is great!

I put on the same lift a couple of weeksago works great did my whole thing at work{was board} in under 4 hours my only complant is the rear blocks where too short had the rear saggin too much but 4wheel parts sent me a 3 1/2 block kit no charge right out now I just have to find the time to install my body lift that came in yesterday.. and I'm running 285/75/16 but have a set of 315/75/16 I'm putting on

I have been looking at this lift on 4wheelparts.com for my 2wd 96 Ram and can't seem to pull the trigger.Did you need any special tools for the install?? I'll be doing it by myself so I just want to know what I'm looking forward to.

I did not need any special tools. The one special tool that we used we already had and that was the bleeder for the brakes. The kit is awesome and very easy to install. Im 16 and did lots of the work, my dad did help me, but only at the stuff that was too heavy to hold and bolt up myself.

This kit levels out the truck, IMO i like my front end higher then the rear though. Oh and if you use your stock tires and rims you will need to get a wheel spacer. With the new spindles my stock wheels were rubbing up against the spindle so i had to get a 1/4" spacer from pep boys. Other wise no complaints at all.

Excellent, I ended up ordering the lift last night from 4wheelparts.com. I had to order shocks as well because the only kits left are 299.00 for the 4" lift but do not come with shocks. I order four of the Pro Comp ES3000's and also ordered four new Pro Comp 33" tires and Xtreme Alloy 1069's. UPS guy is gonna have a stroke delivering all this stuff to me,lol!!
