Best Suspension Upgrades for the Ram 1500
The Dodge Ram
1500 is one of the most popular pickup trucks currently on the market, and many
people want to find a way to get more out of this popular truck when it comes
to payload capacity. This is why there are a lot of options for suspension
upgrades to improve the carrying capacity of the Ram 1500. Some very powerful
options to upgrade your suspension include heavy-duty coil springs and
SuperSprings, but which one is right for you?
Heavy-Duty Coil Springs: Powerful Suspension Upgrades
springs are a good choice for a truck that will see farm use, installation of a
heavy snowplow, or for work trucks that will be hauling heavy loads routinely.
If you are constantly hauling heavy loads, you want an easy way to increase
your load capacity, and adding heavy-duty coil springs can do just that.
For the Ram
1500, we have two main options for rear suspension heavy-duty springs: one to
increase the capacity by 25% with a rated load per spring of 2,250 lbs., and
one to increase the capacity by 50% with a rated load per spring of 2,700 lbs.
SuperSprings for Your Dodge Ram Truck
are a unique product that sits over your regular springs and will only engage
when the factory springs reach their load capacity. This innovative product ensures that you do
not have the stiffening seen with heavy-duty springs that can happen when you
are riding without a load. For the Dodge Ram 1500 there are two main options
depending on the model year.
For models from
1972 to 2001, regular load SuperSprings are rated for 950 lbs. and heavy
loading models are rated for 1,500 lbs. For models from the year 2002 to 2008,
the regular loading models have a capacity of 900 lbs. and the heavy loading
models have a capacity of 1,300 lbs.
