Zone Offroad - 2.5" Adventure Series UCA Lift System - 06-11 Dodge Ram 1500 (ZOND48)
Zone Offroad 2.5" Adventure Series Upper Control Arm Lift System.
The issue with most leveling kits for the late model Ram 1500s is limited travel. With any more than 1" of lift on stock components, the upper ball joint is maxed out before the suspension reaches full droop. Zone Offroad's new upper control arms correct the issue by repositioning the ball joint to work properly at 2-3" of lift while still allowing for a full range of motion. These new control arms dwarf the factory units and are built from 1/8" steel, boxed and fully welded with CNC-machined bushing and ball joint cups. They use OE durometer rubber bushings and greaseable OE-style heavy duty ball joints for quiet, reliable operation and superior corrosion resistance to uniball style control arms. These new fully boxed and welded control arms dwarf the factory arms and are built to take a beating offroad.
Also included in this kit are a pair of pitched upper strut spacers and preload spacers to provide lift and reposition the factory strut for optimal performance. Finishing off this 2.5" Adventure Series kit is a complete 2" differential relocation kit to reposition the front axle to keep CV axle angles to a minimum. These components together offer impressive off-road performance out while maintaining highway drivability on the 2006-2011 Dodge Ram 1500 4WD trucks. The kit allows the clearance for 33-35" tires to be installed.
