Recommended Suspension Enhancement For 2016 Ram 5500


Hello, we are finishing our expedition truck built on the chassis 2016 RAM 5500 - VIN XXXXXXX But we have problem with the weight of the body, can you let us know: 1 what is the spcification of the rear suspension leaf spring according to our VIN number ?? 2 is there any additional leaf spring available for higher weights than we have?? Thank you and best regards

The Vin number doesn't help me find your current capacities, but I have the information needed to help with a solution. We have suspension enhancement systems that work with your current suspension to help with support and reduce sag. Your current payload is between 10,000 lbs and 12,300 lbs. So your current leaf springs are between 5,000 and 6,000 lbs minimum.

I recommend the Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System # TDR5500 for the rear of your 2016 Ram 5500. This is a confirmed fit for your chassis whether you have 2WD or 4WD. These Aeon Rubber Springs have a 12,000 lb capacity. They mount where your current bump stops are located to give support to your axle. They work independently side-to-side to compensate for off-center loads. They are not intended to increase the weight capacity of your truck, but rather to work with your suspension to keep it in working order by absorbing shock and increasing stability.

If you also need front suspension assistance, I recommend the Timbren Front Suspension Enhancement System # TUMDF70.
