Have you tried your dealer? My dealer had SRT8 push rods and springs in stock when I did the sidewinder cam upgrade. OEM parts for the hemis are pretty cheap and pretty easy to come by, as a rule.

Default Cam Bearings for 2009 Dodge Ram 2500

Yes, my local dealer wants $1500 for cam bearings because the only way they can get it is to buy the block with cam bearings installed in it. That is not an option. So still looking for cam bearings. Thanks I appreciate the try.

I also checked rock auto as well they show the same part number for 2009 5.7L hemi cam bearings as the 2007 Ram 5.7L hemi engine I have torn apart in my garage, however the 2009 5.7L hemi block I looked at is different and I know it is a 5.7L hemi block also but the front (first) cam bearing is different than the 2007 5.7L hemi block. The diameter of the first cam bearing is considerably larger and wider than that of the 2007 5.7L block. Thanks for the help but still looking for these different cam bearings................

Default Cam Bearings for 2009 Dodge Ram 2500

Did you ever find a solution to the aftermarket #1 cam bearing for the 4th Gen 5.7L Hemi? I'm in the same boat as you were last year...dealer wants entire block replaced. Can't believe someone hasn't made this bearing yet....what's the issue....low demand?

If the 2009 block you looked at came from a Ram 1500 then it would be an eagle headed 5.7 390hp version, unlike your 2009 5.7 which is still the 345 hp version in the 2500, 3500 trucks.

Problem Solved - I wrote Mahle/Clevite on their website contact page and they immediately came back (apologetically I might add) and they are sending me a new set of cam bearings for the "VVT" engine at no charge!!! Yeah....they must have gotten these done recently because they didn't have them last year. The p/n is SH2191S for the set.

Default Cam Bearings for 2009 Dodge Ram 2500

I never did find any cam bearings for that block. It is cool that you did and I will file that information for future use. Great work finding these bearings!
