Synergy MFG Suspension Systems use a synergistic approach, meaning the combined effect of the components is greater than the sum of the individual parts. The overall performance of the system is the most important factor when we are designing components to work together. Synergy MFG Suspension Systems are complete systems for your vehicle and include all necessary components for the lift height and performance advertised. 

This entry level starter kit is designed to maximize performance on your truck while keeping the cost to a minimum. Engineered and manufactured in the U.S.A, the Starter System is available for all (06-08) 1500 Mega Cab 4x4, (03-13) 2500, (03-13) 3500 trucks and will lift the truck 3.0". The Synergy Starter Suspension System accommodates up to 37" tall tires.

  • Progressive wound coil spring manufactured using the latest in CNC hot winding technology for optimized on and off road performance
  • Heavy duty sway-bar links for the correct sway bar geometry and maximized stability
  • Heavy duty rear shackles provide a minimal amount of lift while keeping the rear driveline angles correct
  • Each suspension component features an abrasion-resistant powder coat finish for maximum durability and corrosion resistance


  • (1) 8515-11 Front 3" Sway Bar Links
  • (1) 8555-30-HD Front 3" Coil Springs (sold in pairs)
  • (1) 8566 Rear 1" Lift Shackles


  • When using stock Dodge wheels, we recommend a 1.5" wheel spacer
  • Due to the additional weight of megacab truck configurations, we recommend all gas megacab trucks use Heavy Duty (HD) front coil springs instead of Light Duty (LD) front coil springs. LD front coil springs will give less lift than advertised
