Its actually cheaper to buy the kit than it is to buy a singal mopar shock. It will take care of all your problems. Also if your steering linkage has not been updated to the newer heavy duty style you might want to check with your local dealer.
I have the same thing... DWdiesel.com sells a stabilizer for the gear box... but I am looking for a Heavy Duty steering linkage as you said. I carry a 8.5' western v-plow
