going to level the rear of my wife’s 2017. No new shocks needed correct? Looks like a simple spring swap and done.

I bought these on Amazon, used-like new. There's a set for $100 right now. I cut 1" off my bump stops, original shocks.

I put the same springs on my 2017 laramie crew cab 2wd. With a full gas tank, looks like the driver's side is about 1/2 - 3/4 inch lower than passenger side. Has anyone else noticed this?

Any issues with tracking/imbalance at Mexico speeds with the factory panhard?

I have the Pro Suspension 2" drop springs and handling is great at I-95 speeds (80+ at times). I have not changed any other suspensions parts.

I have the MaxTrac Pro Suspension 2" drop also, purchased from MaxTracStore.com, looks like the 10% discount is still available, for a total of $148. and change, free shipping.
They are progressive springs, I installed AirLift 1000HD bags and a Hellwig rear sway bar at the same time, the 272920 springs gave me about a 1.5" drop on my QuadCab, 0 psi on the air bags.

I've put over 2000 miles on so and the drop appears to be the same from the initial install. I have a slight forward rake on the truck, but it still looks better than the stock 3-4" factory rake.

I do plan to get Billsteins 5100s still. One of my shocks appeared to have more rebound than the other. I was at about 64k miles when I installed the components.

Overall I am happy with the stance and the Hellwig sway bars (I did front and rear).
I have yet to haul a heavy (1600lb+) payload with the new setup.
I did have a 2440 lb payload before and was riding bumpstomps with the factory setup.

I had the pro suspension 2" drop springs on my 2014 Ram and I noticed when I hit bumps going around a corner there was some swaying/side to side motion on the rear, which I didn't like at all. I bought a Hellwig rear sway bar and problem gone, the truck handled VERY well with that bar on.

Update:

Recently, I hauled 2400 lb payload in the QC w/ 6'4" bed. 272920 springs from MaxTrac w/ factory shocks. Airlift 1000HD bags in springs. Goodyear Wrangler SR-A 275/60R20 @ 38 psi.

I added air to my Airlift 1000HD air bags to 48 psi, then added payload.
My truck was sitting level.
I measured from top of the rim to fender edge.
9 inches all around.

I unloaded the payload. 48 psi still in the air bags.
Rear measured at 12 inches.

I decompressed the air bags to under 5 psi.
Rear measured at 10.5 inches.

The Airlift 1000HD set I have is for RAM 1500, I didn't get the shorter ones for the Durango.

About 10 months ago, 2440 lb payload, factory springs, no air bags, I was riding on bump stops.

I'm happy with this setup, although I am considering a 1/3 drop in the future, probably keep the same air bags.
