Recommended Rear Axle Suspension Kit for 2018 Ram 3500 DRW with 5000-lb Truck Bed Camper


I will be hauling a camper in bed of 18 Ram 3500 Dually loaded up about 5,000lbs over rear axle. I did this with my 16 Ram and got by with lower and upper stableloads but still had marginal sagging, and dont want airbags. Would the supersprings 4,000lb load support be best for my application despite it saying for commercial use?

If you want a rear-axle suspension support kit for your 2018 Ram 3500 dually to help with sag from your 5000-lb truck bed camper, but you do not want an adjustable air bag kit, then I suggest the Super Springs jounce spring kit # SSR-301-47-2 over the helper leaf spring kit # SSA245-2.

These jounce springs are rated for 4600-lbs, closer to the camper's weight, and like the leaf spring kit it installs without any drilling. These springs will both provide leveling under load and absorption of road shock. Progressive resistance means the spring will apply stiffness in proportion to the load and road conditions.

If you are willing to consider an air bag kit these will offer the advantage of on-the-fly adjustment as you drive if you install a compressor kit along with it.
