Default High speed movement??

I have a 2014 Ram RT and when I'm driving at a high speed my truck tends to move a lot, does anyone else have this problem?

No unusual movements here. Had it up against the 106 speed limiter a couple of times and was steady as any vehicle I've ever driven at that speed or higher.

Tony, are the roads you drive on heavily used by trucks and asphalt. Most of the roads have ruts in them due to the weight of the trucks that use those roads. I suspect that is what you are feeling more than anything else.

Do you have anything else besides the BT 2/4 kit? It's not uncommon for that kit to have rear end wagging issues and there are many ways to fix it: proper realigning of the panhard bar, adjustable control arms/panhard bar, bushing upgrade, shock upgrades, swaybar, and that's just for the rear end, the list goes on.

Now, I've built my suspension to handle high speed, and my truck is quite capable of doing 275km/h which is 170mph, so it's possible to do it properly.

I have had my truck on the track at the limit and it was easy to handle. No high speed issues at all, except the damn limiter

Sounds like it needs a "real" performance tire instead of the GY Fortera.............they will fit a 305-40-22 just like the Ram SRT10's........

Mine does it and it is horrible, it feels like it is rocking back and forth - side to side, it can get to the point of almost losing control if I don't slow down. One of my shocks is bad in the rear, (no rebound), so I am sure that is not helping. I am working on custom shocks now to see if that fixes / helps. I am going to address one thing at a time until I can eliminate it completely. I will post if / when I figure it out.
