Looks like it's a smidge higher in the front, no?
Yeah almost half an inch on one side.. might try adding and adjusting the revel links this week to hopefully correct it. Just not sure what length to set them at…

I went back and forth with Revel customer service a bunch of times and at one point they suggested getting the rear links specifically for this reason (to pull it up a bit). What's weird is I've seen at least a few people claim that they didn't need them and were perfectly level....?

Interested as well. 2019 Limited thats new to me. I don't want a full lift just a level for the front end so I can put 33's on 18 inch OEM wheels I picked up used for $200 for the set.

You can for sure put 33s on stock height

Just left Total Chaos Fabrication in California today. They took my vehicle in as a Research and Development partner and we installed Air Suspension Compatible Upper Control Arms. Full clearance at full droop with 2” spacer and adjustable air links installed. Accommodates 37” tires! See pics below and follow me on Instagram for updates. Lots of air suspension performance parts on the way!

Do you have their contact info? What city are they in?

Just came across this kit from ReadyLift for the Airride Rams I have a 2021 1500 Limited.


My questions are this:

Has anyone fitted this kit yet?
What are Readylift UCA's traditionally like? Good strong no issues?
I already have the Daystar Spacers and Revel Links although not installed would I be better off with them as can get more adjustment (closer to 2") then the Readylift ones or am I best just sticking with Readylifts and only doing 1.5"?
What do you think would be better, Daystars softer spacers or the Readylift Fabricated ones?

Any other info would be appreciated.
I just fitted this Daystar Spacers and Revel Links kit this weekend and it was a little more difficult than than the YouTube videos described. Not exactly just a plug and play, the stock threaded posts on the air canisters needed to be cut down about .65 inches from the tip of the post for the adaptors to thread all the way down and seat flush. So there is a little fabrication that needs to take place. Not sure why the post length would change over 2 years but apparently they have. YouTube shows they just threading on without any issues, not the case. With that being said they definitely help with the stance, looks very good and drivability hasn't changed at all. I did this set up with 2in spacers all around with 35in TOYO Outlander AT3s.

Absolutely, I just put 35s on and they barely rub the mud flaps at full turn. 33s would be the perfect fitment, I don't believe that you would have any issues. Somebody please correct me if I'm wrong.

How was it dealing the air suspension hook up? I've heard there's a risk of losing nitrogen out of the canisters. And did you put in entry/exit to detach?

Its definitely something to keep a close eye on, just need to remember that they are brass fittings with O-rings and that you cant be as rough with them. Surprisingly, this part of the install was rather easy, I did have the truck in Entry/Exit level along with the tire jack mode on prior to jacking and disconnecting everything. I didn't even adjust the revel links prior to install, I wanted to see for one if I could get that lucky and two how close it would be to the rear height. Luck would have it that it sits within a quarter inch. I didn't have any dash lights before or after testing height settings once installed. This was also one of my major concerns prior to the install. The biggest headache was the fabrication of the air bag posts, and even that wasn't too bad.

Thanks man, really appreciate the breakdown. I don't have the proper tools, nor am I mechanically savvy (or gusty lol) enough to try this myself, but my local shop guy is a good dude and this will definitely help him out. Did you put bigger tires on right away?

I'm happy to help, the stock tires in snow were less than desirable and I had the new set of TOYOs put on a week prior to the leveling kit. The 35s rubbed pretty much the same before and after the install of the leveling kit. Good luck with the install.

I just put Falken H/T02's on (285/45r22) and they've been awesome so far so I will probably run those out before I decide what to do but I wasn't looking to go 35's anyway, 34 would be max. Also thinking of just downsizing to 20's and going with 275/60's. Roughly the same sidewall percentage increase as going to 34's/35's on the 22's and tires are half the price.

Would just need to find someone to buy my 22's haha.

So I got the ready lift UCA and spacer, bracket etc installed and think it was a great option. Truck is sitting slightly higher in the front now so I’ll need to look at using the revel links to adjust I’m guessing.. any help with link sizing, or measurements from fender to rim would help as I didn’t get proper measurements before the install.

sway bar went on fine so it’s just fine tuning the links amd ride height now. Also correcting left to right height difference. Will post pics if you like,
Just verifying, this is the ReadyLift 1.5inch lift?

What size tires you running?

Just to be clear this is only the readylift 1.5 inch levelling kit installed? Or do you have revel links installed as well?

What year Ram? I have heard the 21s and 22s will fit this kit without fabrication, is this true?

I had my Readylift kit installed the other day and now the front is sitting higher than the rear. Might have to take their bracket off for the airbag sensor and use the original with some revel links to adjust the airbag height.
