Not what i wanted to hear. Mine is a daily driver, Starting to regret this mod! And my tires won't fit without lift either. Thanks for the info on the kore high angle cv's, your right they are pricey. But if they would solve this problem they might be worth it? Would hate to spend the cash on them and still have the problem.

Hey HemiRam, I have my 4x4 with the Bils 5100's set at 2.1 and experience no wobble in either 4WD Auto or Lock. I've had mine on for near 6000miles now and works great for me. And I've still got plenty of room to fit 35's. My OE front wheel well height was at 36.25" and now with my 5100's settled in, she sits at 38.25". Plenty of room bud.

But it wont be as bad as maxing for some.....
2.1 is probably the best setting IMO

If anyone gets wobbles at this setting, then all levels wont work on their truck.
anything over 2.5" tends to push it.
More than not, it wont be felt....but the odd ones will

I had them done at my dealer....they didnt know how to do it at first but I had to walk them through it and it was a piece of cake for them.
They didnt understand the concept of it

Now they are selling it

I work for Chrysler and this was a big concern for me since I was originally going to do bilsteins at 2.8 on 35s... now i am doing 6" RCX with Bilsteins at 1.6 (or whatever it is) or possible 2.1...

I talked to my Ram service tech whose been working on Ram trucks since 98. He said for me not to worry about it even at 2.8. Per him the wobble is caused by bad angles, 2.8" is a lot of pressure on these trucks. However, under normal driving I would experience zero issues.

The only concern or negative aspect was I had a "higher" chance of breaking a CV under hard usage such as offroading etc, this would be caused by the combination of oversized tires and the angles. You run the same amount of risk breaking something running 35s as you do with the angles.

So, the only concern is that under aggressive offroad 4x4 use you can run the risk of snapping something. Should this be a major concern? Not really since you'll be running the risk with heavier tires and you run the risk period with offroading stock or not.

The only solution right now is KORE high angle CV's but they run around $800 which IMO just justifies going with a full suspension lift. You still run the risk with Kore's products. Anytime you put large tires and any lift on a 1/2 ton and take it off road you are going to run the risk of breaking something. However, if you are intending to just run it in snow, on a ranch, etc you will be fine... If you plan on offroading on the beach or heavy mud then yes you run the risk... but you are already risking it being out there.

IMO, go for it..
