Rear Long Lower Link Replacement System for your 2014 to current 2500 4x4 Ram Truck
Improve geometry and increase travel and traction on your 14 to current 2500 4wd Ram rear suspension.
The original rear suspension was designed to suit OEM assembly needs, but it definitely leaves a lot to be desired for axle control and travel.
In this kit, you delete the lower oem control arms all together.
What you get is a heavy duty bolt on bracket for the lower part of your axle (where a bracket should have been), a bolt on bracket on your frame rails located by original holes, and a new super strong adjustable lower link, over 50” long, utilizing two bushing ends, and two of our 1-1/4” chromoly, heat treated, teflon/nylon lined rod ends. Optional boots available for the easiest of maintenance. (CLICK HERE)
Vehicle height depending, this can improve power planted to the ground, but definitely improve axle control, feel, and wheel hop.
Requires some drilling, and at least a small amount of trimming of the original frame lower link mount (does not effect ability to return to stock), with the option of removing it all together (the section you see sticking down when looking at the truck from the side) and adding our cover plate. (CLICK HERE)
We also have 5 adjustable replacement links to compliment this system in adjustability as well as relocation brackets for the track bar. (CLICK HERE)

INSTALL INSTRUCTIONS: 

   Original lower links will be removed and discarded, but they can be left in place during installation to help get your new lower adjustable link measurements.

   The original bolts are pretty tight so it would be best to have them loose and ready to remove before the rest of the install, at least before they links.

   Rear axle brackets install under original sway bar clamps on rear side of axle and can be done first.

   Install badges on brackets.

   Remove original bolts from sway bar, slide bracket under sway clamp, replace original bolts with new longer 10mm bolts.

   Brackets should be tight against axle tube below and flat against front lower axle gusset.

   When properly aligned, drill 4 holes for each bracket for supplied 7/16” bolts and secure.

   Rear frame brackets.

   The two frame link brackets will locate by original hex shaped holes in the outside edge of the frame. You can check approximate location with your lower links held in place.

   With brackets held in place mark and drill the 15/32 hole for the self threading bolt up from the bottom.

   Then, using a long tab blind nut, (twice) insert it into the frame in the leading larger hole and carefully extend it back (its a stretch, but with one finger on the tab against the frame its not bad) and thread a bolt/washer into the blind nut. (Grease on blind nut threads is recommended) Leave all a little loose until they are all in and tighten.

   Once snugged, drill the through bolt holes in the rear of the bracket. Finish tightening all.

   You need to grease ALL components that are involved in the links. Adjust to suit your needs, wheelbase, square, and pinion angle. Would largely depend on setup, lift height or air suspension travel goals, and whether you are using our adjustable upper links or not.

   It won’t matter which end goes where, but we usually keep the rod ends at the frame end where it’s easy to spray them with a penetrant/lubricant.
