laidback is on a distinguished road
Default 2004 1500 4wd-have to replace most of front end suspension

Ok,
So it is time to replace upper arms, lower ball joints, sway bar rubber and the other vertical linkage part that I cannot remember the name to right now. Have anyone found a kit that has all these parts in them, preferably better than OEM equipment or should I just try to find a full lift kit since the whole thing will have to be basically ripped out? Having these torsion bars is causing a bit of confusion as well since I am interested in replacing the shocks with the Bilstein 5100's to give me a few inches in the front as opposed to new torsion keys. I did the new keys before and one broke after being on the truck for 1 day as I went over a mild speed bump at 10 mph. I know I have to replace the ball joints and such, so I have been looking around for a kit to replace it all. Thinking of using Moog stuff since it seems to have a good reputation.
Any advice of links would be helpful.
Thanks,
jon

Hi and a warm Carolina welcome to the best RAM ForumZ on the web. How about jumping over to the Newbie Checkin and posting a few photos of your truck? I'm not sure where to point you but someone will.
