I want to lower my ’99 Dodge Ram 1500 2″ in the front using Calmax Upper Control Arms CA2391U, and 4″ in the rear using DJM Hanger & Shackle Kit HS1139-4 and 2 Calmax Supershox #2100. What is the recommended shocks to be used with the Upper Control Arms CA2391U and are they a direct OEM replacement? Does the Calmax Upper Control Arm CA2391U include both left and right control arms and is there more needed to complete the 2″/4″ lowering?

It is pretty easy to give your 99 Ram a 2/4 drop, but rather than use upper control arms(CA2391U) you should use the coil springs (CS2391-2). The upper arms can only help you with alignment, they have no effect on ride height and are designed to be used in the 4″ front drop kit. Combine the CS2391-2 springs with a pair of 1315 Calmax SuperShox for your front 2″ drop and as you know the rear 4″ Hanger & Shackle Kit (HS1139-4) with a pair of 2100 Calmax SuperShox for the rear. That’s all you need! Good luck Darrell! By the way here is a link to the parts your interested in – djmfactorystore
