Default 02 2500 Diesel, Front end upgrade recomendations.

Hi, I am looking to freshen up the front end of a 02 2500 Diesel stock ride height, the truck is in very nice shape and has low mileage and have had it since new. I am looking to just freshen up the front end as it has some slop and clunks. I have heard of different kits and have heard about some bearing that goes on the steering box shaft or something. Any input and links would be great.

Rock solid ram steering shaft bushing. I don't have one yet, but it's on the list. I've done the Borgeson steering box and shaft. I've adjusted the Borgeson box way beyond recommended settings, and I'm very happy with that. The steering shaft at first I didn't think was that bad until I got it out. It had some issues. I also installed a steering box brace which is well worth the money. I also went with Energy Suspension bushings everywhere I could put them. Someday I want new front shocks as I believe mine are clunking a bit.

I started on E bay. Borgeson still has a site I think. Energy Suspension kits are on E bay also. Rock solid Ram has some good stuff on YouTube, just search a little bit. I think I'm going to get one real soon also. I'm never happy, happy with my frontend and am constantly doing something to it. I set my toe-in to 0, and wonder if I should toe it in just a tiny bit,,, I'm may be going bananas,,,

You wouldn't believe the difference. Not only did it take away any mystery looseness, but all, and I mean all the rattles and clunks that I didn't even think would go away are gone. This of course is after I upgraded my front end with about everything you can think of.
