Looking for more ground clearance for your Promaster? Here is a list of all the Ram Promaster Lift Kit options currently on the market.
All of these kits will allow you to run larger tires which will give you an additional 0.5" of ground clearance (245/75R16) with some minor fender trimming.
These lift kits will fit any Dodge Ram Promaster 1500, 2500, 3500, or RV on a Dodge Ram Promaster chassis. These will not fit the Dodge Ram Promaster City, unfortunately.
We do offer installation of all of the following Ram Promaster lift kits at our shop in Denver, Colorado. Feel free to reach out to us for an estimate or with any questions!
Trends We See In Our Shop
We have lifted over 200 Ram Promasters in the last couple of years and this is what we have heard from our customers.
Between the 1.5", 2", and 3" Promaster lift kits, we install 90% of the 3" kits. Customers who choose the 1.5" kit are usually concerned about premature CV axle wear and failure due to the increased angle at both joints due to the higher lift.
None of our customers (that we know of) have had a CV axle failure due to the increased angle of either kit.
For the 3" kits, both the Journeys Offroad 3" Promaster Lift Kit and Off Highway Vans 3" Lift Kit are both excellent quality and approach the lift in the same fashion.
With all these lift kits, we recommend upgrading the factory OEM struts to Bilstein B6 for the front and either the Bilstein B6 or Agile Offroad Fox Shocks for the rear for improved ride smoothness and stability.
We also recommend adding Sumo Springs in the rear and removing any Sumo Springs in the front to help reduce the front CV axle.
Ram Promaster Lift Kit Options
Off Highway Vans 3" Promaster Lift Kit - $1,845
The original 3" lift kit for the Ram Promaster. Will give you more clearance than the 1.5" kits and raises the rear axle as well.
Instead of using blocks between the leaf springs and axle, it uses adapter plates that bolt between the wheel spindles and axle. It does push the CV axle higher than the 1.5" lift kit which can put more stress and lead to premature failures.
OHV has made an effort lately to improve its customer service and help with installation questions.
Journeys Offroad 3" Promaster Lift Kit - $1,190
Essentially identical to the Off Highway Vans 3" Promaster Lift Kit. The only difference is that their spring compressor (which helps with installation) uses beafier all threads which have fewer problems with seizing during use.
Journeys Offroad 2" Promaster Lift Kit - $1,190
(3" lift kit pictured)
The rear of this lift kit is identical to Journeys 3" Promaster lift kit but includes smaller lift strut spacers for the front. This is a good option for customers who want more clearance underneath their rear axle but less stress on their front CV axles.
This kit will give the van a slight rake (the rear of the van being higher than the front).
Van Compass Complete 1.5" Promaster Lift Kit - $624.75
(Van Compass 1.5" Leveling Kit Pictures. Complete will raise the rear an additional 1")
This kit will give the van a slight rake (front lower than the rear). Will give you 1.5" of lift from the chassis to the ground. The rear axle will stay at the same distance from the ground since to lift the rear blocks are put in between the axle and leaf springs.
Van Compass 1.5" Promaster Leveling Kit - $341.25
This kit will raise the front of the Promaster so it sits at the same level as the rear. You will get around 1.5" of clearance from the lowest point at the front of the van. The rear clearance will remain the same.
