Default 1986 ram suspension components and parts.....HELP!!!!!

it seems they make very little aftermarket parts for this body style dodge and its very disappointing. there are alot of things i want to do to this truck, but for a start i'm choosing to mess with the suspension since its one of the area's that seems like will be 1 of the hardest to get parts on. my question? does anyone know where i can find suspension parts for my 1986 ram? drop shackles? hangers? spindles? steering stabalizers? coil over shocks? 4 links? traction bars? anything at all would help guys........been searching for days and days. tryin to lower 3front and 4rear with as tight a suspension as possible and able to cut corners like a hot knife through butter. any help at all is appreciated. as a matter of fact any aftermarket parts known of for interior, exterior, or whatever would be useful info. thanx in advance guys.

Well first, welcome to the forum from a fellow Louisianian! That's a really good question you have and I guess when I had my older Ram, I just never really got into looking for the same components you are, but lots of knowledgeable folks here, so I'm sure we'll be able to try and help you source some of these things. In the meantime, be sure to introduce yourself to everyone in the Newbie Checkin and get your official Ram Z welcome!

thank u cajun for the welcome. i see u live in morgan city.....i live a little lower down south in the livingston parish area.and the 2 main reason i picked this truck is 1. my father owned this model before passing away, and 2. u just don't really see these body style rams ridin around customized. well u see them jacked up and 4x4ed out......but not really lowered and hot rodded like talkin about. and thats why i decided to pick this year model dodge. to be the oddball i guess. but i don't want it draggin the ground, just a decently lower stance and tighter suspension.along with the other plans i have for it.
