    Hi everyone! Im new here and happy to be a part of such a great forum.

    I ordered a RC 3" suspension kit and was going to get it fixed just a few hrs ago, but when i took the tires of the car i noticed that there was 2" drop spindles fitted, previous owner told me that he had lowered it with other coils, but that was not the case! And because i live in Sweden spindles are more rare and expensive here. I have a 2005 Ram Slt 4.7 2wd. The 4.7 2wd is not very common her but we have alot of 5.7 and 4x4...

    So my question is, do spindles from 5.7 Hemi's fit or what is the difference? And/or is it possible to use 4x4 spindles? And what is the difference between those?

    My second question is, the previous owner did also flip the rear axle but im gonna flip it back, do i need any parts for that because ive seen on flipkits that there is a few parts you need, but what do i need to flip it back?

    Thanks

    I think to flip the back you don’t reuse the stock plates that u bolts go to on leaf spring( been over 6yrs since I did mine so I kinda forget) idk about 4wd spindals or if there’s a difference but any 2wd 02-08 ram 1500 minus mega should all interchange

    Well i did get hold of 2 front spindles from a 4x4 that they say should fit without any problems.

    The one thing i still dont get is the flip back the rear axle!? Do i need to move some brackets or change position nd weld them on again?

    You need to buy a flip kit. I’m sure something can be rigged out of stock parts but not sure
