Recommendation for Suspesion Enhancement Compatible with a Gooseneck Trailer Hitch, 2006 Dodge Ram


recently installed BandW G?N hitch in my 2006 Dodge quad cab 1/2 ton pick-up. Will your overload springsrubbermount with that installation? Modifications required? Alternatives? Put in hitch expecting to use your suspension assists. Thanks

In order to determine if the Timbren Vehicle Suspension, # TDR2500CA, and the B and W gooseneck hitch you have installed will interfere with each other, you will need to take a look at the installation details, linked below, and the video showing installation on a similar truck to see if any of the same attachment points are used.

Based on the video and instructions, to me it seems unlikely but possible that the two will interfere with each other. Also, these springs are designed for the Mega Cab model which has a larger rear door than the quad cab. For a quad cab, you would need # TDR1525H4. I have included a link to the installation details for these springs as well. They install in much the same way as the springs you have referenced.

A better option would be the SuperSprings Vehicle Suspension, # SSA6MTKT, for a quad cab, # SSA9MTKT, for a mega cab. These springs attach to the factory leaf springs and should not interfere with the underbed mounts of a gooseneck or 5th wheel trailer hitch. I have included a link to the installation details below.
