I would like to level the truck. Not sure with the air suspension why they build in such rake (rear tire and fender gap) when the air suspension will self level. Not sure if I want to go up in the front 2" or down in the rear 2".


If I go up in the front I will lose the Entry/Exit Mode and will need to add boards to get in which I do not like the looks of so will need to add the AMP power boards so they are less noticeable and that is another $1500. But I would also be able to add 35" tires next time around.


Or do I just go down in the rear and keep the Entry/Exit Mode, no boards and 33" tires. Tires would be less expensive but would not look as cool. I just do the occasional off-roading which this would be plenty for.


I am thinking either way I can just by extra links and swap them out. If I want to lower the rear I will by OEM front links and put the on the rear. If I want to raise the front, buy OEM rear links and put the on the front.


Has anyone done this with the links and opinions on up in the front or down in the rear.


Thanks in advance!

Maybe posting a picture might help. There is no rake unless the truck is in aero mode. It is by definition a self leveling system.

I searched for ram pics and not a single one had any kind of rake.

yea thats what I thought as well, RAM went airbags in the first place to offer a leveled truck, it was supposed to be specific to towing...

That is why I put "(rear tire and fender gap)" with rake. I know the truck is actually level but if you look at the fender gaps there is 2" more in the rear. Most with normal coil suspension trucks either add a spacers in the front or shorter coils in the rear to level.


I know this actually makes the truck un-level (rear tilted back or reverse rake) but if the fender well gaps are the same it gives the illusion that it is level.
