Default death wobble and new parts comin

im new to the site, just got the death wobble in my 2005 2500 heavy duty ram 4x4. just took it to the dealers for full inspection and wheel alignment, they had no idea and have never heard of the death wobble before.

i ordered a bd diesel adjustable track bar and the steering stabilizer, i ordered the dt profab +1/2" upper and lower control arms, i am putting a leveling kit on atthe same time and have seen no forums which give any good options for a 1 1/2" leveling kit, i have measured my truck(stock) i have measured in all different spots and it is definitley not 2" out of level and i dont want it to sit higher in the front. any ideas?

also id like some more input on the parts im installing, good and the bad. thanks guys.

I've got a 4" lift on my 2007 and have no wobble. But I think you are on the right track. I looked at the DT stuff when I had a '99 and I liked what I saw.

well i got most of my parts today, everything but my control arms which are on back order. i choose the daystar leveling kit as i liked the idea of the polyuerethane lifts as opposed to the steel ones,(like hammering metal)i finished one side of the leveling kit, took me about 2 hours. next side...tommorrow. do i need longer linkage to sway bar? my sway bar bushings look shot too.

id have to say the bd diesel adjustable track bar is very beefy looking compared to the stock one, i mean ive seen pictures comparing them but until it arrived i had no idea, very impressive. the steering stabilizer was not as beefy as i thought it would be but still looks good. the bearing looks of good quality too.

ill post pics as the project goes on...
