Default More towing capacity with my 1/2 ton 99 ram?

What can i do to get more towing capacity with my 1/2 ton? The 3/4 ton and 1 ton shocks are not the same... Will they fit and give more capacity?


Yes i posted this in the chevy tech one but id like to know that one too....

No.


In fact, from the looks of your other thread, you really shouldn't tow at all.

shocks will do nothing for capacity. all they do is dampen the bumps. they do not support any load. that would be the springs. you best bet is to sell the chevy and ram and get a 1ton truck for what your wanting to do.
