The Tuff Country 4.5" lift kit for your Dodge Ram 1500 includes upper coil spring tower brackets, upper & lower control arms, long arm mounting brackets, track bar bracket, pitman arm, sway bar relocating brackets, front & rear brake line brackets, and a set of rear add-a-leafs. Four SX8000 Nitro shocks are included. Shock boots sold separately. The spring tower brackets mount above the factory coil springs to lift the front. The advantage of this is you maintain a factory ride while being securely bolted in above your factory coil springs. By replacing the factory control arms with the longer arms, the ride is smoother, bump steer is significantly reduced and handling is dramatically improved. The control arms are greasable with re-buildable flex joints.
