Default 2001 with skyjacker lift...

Just bought this truck yesterday... and I am a newbie here!

Got a great deal on this truck and there is no way I can be hurt - no matter how much money I have to invest. Love Dodge Ram 1500's!!!!

Here is the first of many questions to come:

  1. This truck has a skyjacker lift kit on (have no idea the model or height) can someone help me with this?
  2. When driving down the road 20+ MPH, especially on roads that are in not so good condition, the truck is all over the place. Drifting mainly to the left is the best way to describe it. Overcompensating the steering is easy to do, especially at higher (50+mph) rates of speed.
  3. Don't hear any Klunking noise, but when going slow, (like through a parking lot) I do hear squeaking noises (loud at times).
  4. Is it easy to replace the shock absorber side of the SkyJacker lift kit? AND are there bushing assemblies on these things that can be replaced??
Thanks for any help! Again, this is the first of many questions. I am mechanically inclined, have a sh** ton of tools and I am not afraid to get dirty. Have worked on many vehicles - so I do have some knowledge of what is happening.
