Suspension Enhancement for a 2004 Dodge Ram 2500 4x4 and In-Bed Camper


Would you recommend Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs, # F2299, and SuperSprings Vehicle Suspension, # SSA15MTKT. for carrying a camper weighing approx 1,950 a 2004 Dodge diesel RAM 2500 SLT 4x4. If not the above parts then what would you recommend?


Expert Reply:

You would benefit from some suspension enhancement on your 2004 Dodge Ram and in-bed camper. However, you would not need 2 separate systems. One would be sufficient. Since a camper is pretty much a static load (does not vary greatly in size or shape) going with rubber springs or leaf springs would be the way to go.

My top choice is a Timbren system, # TDR2500CA. These springs are going to help stabilize and level the truck, reduce road shock and side to side roll. They have a high 6,000 pound capacity.

Another option are the Super Springs like # SSA10MTKT or # SSA15MTKT which will fit if your truck does not have factory top overload springs. Or use # SSA23 if the truck does have factory overload springs.

The most economical choice is going to be the Timbrens. I have included a link to an FAQ article on them for you to view. I have also linked the instructions and a video showing a typical installation.
