Even at 2.5 inches, I have the front end shudder in 4x4 high. I just ordered the KORE high angle cvs to fix the problem for good. I am waiting to get them in and once i get them and have a chance to install them, I will post about the results. I also intend to finish ordering the rest of the KORE Prerunner kit when I recover from the cvs.

How bad is it really? I have a little bit of shudder but it isn't bad enough for me to sink that much money in mine to get rid of it.

it seems 5100's aren't the exact answer either, some people still get the shake. they come in the Prerunner kit but they are bigger diameter and re-valved. Not to mention that if dodge trusts core to build and design the ram runner kit...anyway i ordered mine a little over 2 weeks ago, the c/v joints are on back-order cause they use them in the ram runner as well i should be getting my Prerunner kit in the next week or so...will try to take pictures for once of the install and post them with with results when i'm done.

Well i cant speak for him, but if mine is in 4wd with the wheel cocked and you hammer the gas it tries to rip the steering wheel out of your hand.

I have the 5100's set at 2.1" and have no vibrations or any issues at all, 2wd or 4wd. I am interested what you think of the KORE system though.

It looks like this kit is just the upper control arm with ball joint, 5100's adjustable for the front and 5100's for the rear with spacers and the CV assemblies w/boots. Does $2000 still seem a little hight for that or is it just me?
