Looking for info from anyone who has installed Revel links to level your Rebel. Has your ride quality changed? Any issues with the install?

Getting my list in order for mods to my Rebel and the links are at the top. Thanks in advance for any help.

I tried searching around on the forum and I don't think anyone has installed Revel links on their rebels yet. Maybe there are reviews of it being used on other Ram trucks?

I'm not sure why anyone would buy them. You can make your own from plastic tubing for less than $5.

Or, you could make professional quality adjustable links with socket tips for less than $30.


Or you can buy the Revel links for $300 on sale. There's almost no difference between these and what you can make yourself. Plus the homemade ones like in the pic above look much better.

I'm mechanically challenged but those look very well done. Do you have a list of parts needed? Thanks for your response.

That's my picture! I built those. They are simple to build. If you can thread a nut on a bolt, you can build these.

Yes, it is your pic. And you did a nice job. Sorry, I thought I got a link to the forum page in there, too but must have clicked something wrong, or there would have been a link to your post with the pic in it.

Able to share where you found the components for this? up here in canada I have been unable to find suitable source that would ship here. :)
Those parts can be found in auto parts stores, or even farm equipment stores around here. Threaded rod and nuts in every big box store and most small hardware stores. Even in stainless steel, it's not tough to find. The ball sockets are only slightly harder to find. They're common sizes used in riding mowers, snow blowers, and all kinds of other equipment. Finding them in stainless is the only real challenge, and it's not insurmountable.

I actually bought all the components on eBay. It was much cheaper than buying them here in local hardware stores. If memory serves be correctly, I believe I only have around 45 bucks with everything and I even had extra threaded rod. Eventually I will make another set to lower my truck. Not that I like lowered trucks, but it would be cool to just have an extra set in my truck just in case the need/want arrises.

Are you able to list the parts needed with details like size etc or a link to the parts?

Wouldn't want to order the wrong parts. ;)

So where did you find the ball sockets? And was the size of the ball 5/16, 8mm ? I have a 2019 rebel with air ride and would like to build a set. Thanks for your time.

Grainger has them. Mine was 8mm and 10mm with 5mm bolt rod in-between. Think I spent $35 for the rod ends. I got the bolt rod from work but can't imagine it would be that much more

Any chance you could provide some part numbers and quantities of each size? Grainger has several options, and I'd like to make sure I get the right parts.

Sure can.......I want to say I started at the stock length and shortened them about a ¼ inch. I could be wrong. Just measure the rears and small adjustments till you get to where you want to be. I was putting the locks on there every time but finally got smart, took them off till I was done totally.

Did you end up putting these on your 19? Did they work? I am looking to do this to a 19 as well. Wanted to see how they turned out for you. This great to have the part numbers listed!
