The older stuff was readily availible and had a good rep...people have been installing it on trucks since the early 2000's when somebody on another forum discovered the systems interchanged. This was long before 4th gen trucks were around!
I didn't know about the 08.5 until recently. I'm told the newer pieces may require trimming on certain factory rims. I don't want to grind on any TREs. I'm told the 08 system is a bit larger but haven't researched it.

Otherwise the older parts are a bolt in on an '01. I run factory 16s on a 1500 with no issues.

I believe this is the correct parts list (Moog #s) for the 98.5 for an "01. On 1999 and earlier trucks the TRE at the pitman arm is different.

ES3527 TRE to pitman
ES 2012S adj sleeve
ES3498S """
ES 3496
DS 1456
DS 1459
