Anyone out there know anything about the KORE suspension for a new Ram 3500? We really want to lift our truck to run 35's. Seems like a quality system. I also like the looks of Fabtech lifts. Any advice or opinions apreciated.
THANKS,
Phil and Erin

If I had to do it over again I would do the KORE setup. It is VERY spendy tho. FYI you can fit 35's with NO lift. I had my 315 BFG's for like two weeks before I had my leveling kit. I will probably go back to 35's with no leveling kit just for towing reasons soon.

<BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-title">quote:</div><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-content">Originally posted by RidgeTop:

The Kore kit is nice, but definately pricey. It's not so much a lift kit as a suspension system designed to take some abuse.

I was running H2 takeoffs, 315/70-17 with no lift and as RMC/AMC mentioned, very little rubbing, and only at full lock, usually in an off-camber situation.

With my current 35's, I still get a little rubbing, but that's from the tires hitting the shock reseviors. I really need to rotate those back.

I have no complaints about my Fabtech lift. It works/looks good. I wish they did something more than just blocks for the rear. I added an extra block to level the truck better, the standard lift left it a little nose high.
