Awesome!! You have the Bilsteins set at 2.5"?

it's been a couple of days and everything is still fine. No death wobble yet. My road isn't the smoothest and the front end feels nice and firm. I did notice after the install that the front axle was shifted a bit towards the driver side. So I've ordered a BD adjustable track bar and and looking for a reasonably price set of sway bar end links. Still searching and hoping to find a set of 2555/80/17's in an AT.

The 5100s dont raise the Heavy Duty trucks do they? I know a bunch of Diesel truck guys and they just have 5100s but they are just used as shocks. I was wondering if its the same thing for the Ram. The guys I know have Chevy's.

The truck looks really good by the way.

I doubt you will feel death wobble unless your steering components are wearing out.

yeah the 5100 are only shocks for the hd's.

ScatPak07 11-05-2010 07:47 PM

Ya thats what I thought. Cool man, they are some really good shocks thats for sure!

Make sure you have the front end realigned . Raising the front does effect the toe in . Let me know how you make out on the adjustable track bar . I'm looking for one for my truck also .
