2010-2018 Ram 2500 & Ram 3500 Cummins Leveling Kits
Leveling Kits are an amazing alternative to lift kits. They’re more affordable, and they retain most of your factory components. This gives you factory ride characteristics and slightly better clearance to add some bigger tires and wheels. Leveling kits come in three different styles: coil spring spacers, replacement coil springs, and bigger torsion keys. When it comes to a four-wheel drive 6.7L Cummins, your two options are a coil spring spacer, or all new coil springs. While there are two styles of leveling kits for these trucks, there are literally hundreds of leveling kit systems available today. Confused yet? Don’t be. Here is everything you need to know about picking a 4th Generation 6.7L Cummins leveling kit.
4th Gen Cummins Replacement Coil Spring Leveling Kits
The best and most comfortable riding option, without a doubt, is replacement coil springs. Paired with larger shocks, this form of leveling kit will give you the smoothest ride, and even be an improvement on your stock steering. Carli suspension, Thuren fabrication, and Bilstein are three well known companies that specialize in Coil spring replacement leveling kits for 4th Gen Cummins trucks. While these leveling kits are ideal, they are more expensive than coil spring spacers, the next best option. You can expect to spend $500 or more on these Cummins leveling kits.
The Bilstein leveling kits pictured below are an affordable, high quality leveling kit for a 4th Generation Cummins. This kit comes with reservoir shocks and all the necessary hardware for a complete installation. It’s completely bolt-on and installation is very easy, even for people who aren’t mechanics. The only addition I would make is to purchase an adjustable track bar. After installation, make sure you have the truck aligned as soon as possible!
Coil Spring Spacers
Instead of replacement coil springs, coil spring spacers sit on top of the coils and add some extra height! This method is very cheap, however, it doesn’t offer the same ride quality as replacing your coil springs. There are hundreds of options out there for coil spring spacers. Make sure you replace your factory shocks or add shock extenders to help retain factory ride quality. An aftermarket adjustable track bar is also a good upgrade to improve ride quality. All necessary hardware should be included. Check out some popular 4th generation Cummins leveling kits available on Amazon below!
