Asked by Sep 21, 2010 at 11:03 PM about the 1996 Dodge Ram 1500

Question type: Car Customization

does any one know where to get a good lift kit for cheap? i have a 96 1/2 ton dodge with a 3 inch body lift, 3 inch leveling kit blocks, and i just bought some 36 inch IroKs and they rub when i turn the wheel all the way left, tey only rub just a little bit, but its enough to tear up the tread, and thats obviously no good, but im just wondering where i could get a great deal on some 5 inch coil springs, thats all i need, and i dont wanna buy a new lift kit since i dont need all of it.

go to junk yard and get 3/4 ton coils about $50+- they'll give you 3in and get 3in lift blocks from auto store bout $30 but because you already have spacers and adding this you will need a adjustable trac bar($200+-) for up front that will fix any rubbing and align your axel back evenly under the truck like it should be if you have already stacked blocks in the rear i would go to a machine shop and get one 3in taller than what you alredy have if you only have one block now you can stack them( not legally) if staking make sure you buy the blocks with the line up pin so it will lock together and that should do it or just weld them and cleanthem to make them look like one. very cheap and easy. if you get springs from a 2500 check to see if its a gas or diesel, diesel will be higher and more stiff and in order to keep it level you might have to do away with your coil spacers
