  1. Lubing the front suspension joints and bushings

    Suspension
    Do I need to lift my truck to lube the grease nipples? I'm a little and skinny person and I can fit under my Longhorn very well. Can I just hard turn my wheels to access most of them?
  2. Pro Comp 2" Leveling Kit

    Suspension
    I recently started the install of a ProComp 2" Leveling Kit. Honestly it hasn't been bad with some patience, pb spray, and a some muscle to knock the rust off. However, I destroyed my upper ball joint with a pickle fork trying to separate the knuckle. Since i had to replace it i decided to go...

  7. Ball Joint Replacement

    Suspension
    Hi everyone! Obviously, I'm new here. I've had good luck with my Ram (did I say that out loud????) but now it's getting older and more miles (152,000) things are starting to wear.
