ripram is on a distinguished road
Default Bilstein 2.1, Zone UCA, 34" Tire, Death Wobble

Hi Guys, First post and I need help

I just bought a 2014 Ram Sport, optioned to the max, read this forum for advice and ended up going with 2.1" front lift/level with the Bilstein 5100s, Bilsteins on the rear, Zone UCAs, and 34" Toyo AT2s with Fuel Wheels. Looks pretty, but has a bit of a "death wobble". Took her in to Les Schwab today and they are saying my angles are off and I need to get adjustable Ball Joints to properly adjust my camber (or was it caster?).

Hoping you guys can help.
1) Should this be a problem I have to spend more $$ on.
2) If I do need to do this, do the Zone UCAs accept the standard Ram ball joint?

Thanks in advance. (trying to attach pic)

The zone UCA has way more than enough adjustment. I would look for something else wrong with the install.

Thank you, just not sure what else to adjust. The mechanic let me under the truck, he was wondering if the UCA's were built poorly (poor angle anyway, they are definitely stout).

There was a thread on another forum where the zone UCA were installed on the wrong side of the vehicle. The zones are side specific and if installed correctly they should have the longer part of the arm facing the front of the vehicle with the ball joint to the rear. If installed backwards you will get a wobble. So check that.

Thank You Focal06! Just checked it out and you are absolutely right! I really appreciate the help. If you are ever in the Seattle area, the beers are on me.

So just to be 100% sure, the mechanic installed the zones on the wrong sides? I ask because you almost scared me away from the level. LOL! Your truck is perfect! Although I love a huge lifted truck I just can't fit it in my garage. Your truck has all the look and all the utility wrapped in one. Sometimes lifted trucks can be a pain in the ass for many reasons but your wheels/tires/level are perfect!

Thank you for the compliment NEVRL8. I can't say with 100% confidence that is the problem, but I think it is. I will be bringing the truck by to get the UCAs side swapped later this week. I went ahead and took a picture of the driver side UCA so you can see how they are currently, and I suspect incorrectly installed. Maybe Focal06 will know by looking at it for sure...

Ok. 100% confirmed they are installed on the wrong side. Getting that fixed now.
