Don't mention the fact it was on a lift for 4 hours and I could have done the drop swap then..... LOL!
Hey.....not sure what your thoughts are after you had your Torque Converter replaced, but I had mine done yesterday under warranty and it made absolutely NO difference.
I still have the drivetrain shudder when the MDS kicks in a low speeds (ECON mode). Apparently the service advisor told me the TC replacement was only to reduce the sound issue, nothing to do with vibration or shudder.
Man I can't believe Dodge would let a vehicle leave the design/test stage with it like this. At least they could have had the MDS only kick in above a certain speed.
Oh well, I may have to live with it. Too bad as it is spoiling a great truck to a degree :-(

I agree. I told my dealer the same thing. It reduced some of the noise but nothing to do with the vibration. The MDS should stay off or be reprogramed for use below 45-50 MPH. This is where GLOBAL has it nailed. It is seamless going in and out.

I don't know how my phone could read GM as "global".

Interesting. I was told that that Corsa part number wouldn't work on a Standard Cab or R/T RAM as it was built for the Quad Cab.

Did you have to have it modified for your R/T?

Can't go wrong with a red R/T.
