I am looking to level my 01 Ram with the below kit.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/94-01...Q5fAccessories

Has anyone else used this kit and if so how is it?

Thank you

Im usually suspcious about ebay products...But they have their own independent website...I would go to it (http://www.topguncustomz.com/Store/products.php?S_ID=56) and get the kit from them if you want the top gun product...Never used the product but it looks legit on the top gun site...I would go for it

A boilermaker I know has a TGC kit on his and seems to be happy with it. At least he's never had any complaints anyways.

just installed the exact same thing today on mine, even bought it off ebay for same price. very well made. the only problem ive had is coming home after installing it, i got the infamous death wobble. so i've been looking around and some say it because of these spacers, but most say thats just a myth and it really caused due to other failing suspension components. i haven't solved it yet, but i think ive narrowed it down to the track bar or steering stabilizer. if any one else has got advise any help is appriciated...

Well, I just ordered the leveling kit and am planning on installing it Friday. I will take pictures of before and after for anyone to see. I will also let anyone know if I experience the death wobble. Wish me luck!

good luck man, they're pretty simple to put in though. if you do experience any death wobble, take a look at the track bar at the frame mount (drivers side), and have some one move the steering wheel back and fourth, if you see any play in the joint/bar you need to replace it. i figured out thats what is wrong with mine. so yeah, good luck man!

There are so many different repairs for the death wobble , where do you start ? One of them is to take off your pitman arm and install a support for the pitman shaft . I've seen another one where you change your tie rods around . Changing pitman arm drop . Theres so much to choose from . If any person does one of these and has success make sure you post your results . Maybe we can come up with our own fix . I have experienced it on mine . Haven't had the money to play with it right now .
