Forum Members,
I love my 2020 Ram Limited. I love it more with the BDS 4" lift for air shocks, 35s and Fuel rims. As I investigated lifting, BDS expressed concerns with the 2020 RAM driveshafts and were not certifying as they had prior models. Anyone got information on driveshaft issues? Replacement builds?

Thoughts... Thanks!

This may not be applicable to your question, but I just installed a new front driveshaft from Adams on my 2018 ecodiesel. When I got my 6" lift installed there was no warning listed on the BDS website. While killing time a little while ago, I revisited the BDS website and saw a new warning about needing a front driveshaft on ecodiesel models.

This is what BDS had to say about why the front driveshaft needed to be changed out (note that this is for a 2018 ecodiesel, YMMV).

The CV portion of the drive shaft will lose grease and start to clunk and make a bunch of noise. This needs to be converted to a dual cardon joint. I have heard that Adams drive shaft and Drivelines plus in Indiana have been working on these to address this.
