The Base Ultimate 3rd Gen Steering Package Includes:
- MOPAR 2008.5 DODGE HD STEERING UPGRADE (MOPAR-52122362AL-01)
And your choice of the following:
These two ball joints get our pick for being the best, and longest lasting joints on the market for these trucks. Made in North America, both options are a huge upgrade over stock, or anything you'd get at a normal parts store. If you're wanting to do ball joints for the last time, these are the way go to. Carli's ball joints come with a lifetime warranty, and EMF joints are re-buildable in the truck. If you've had lot of knurled/splined joints pressed into your truck, the EMF oversized joints are the way to go.
This track bar is without a doubt the best option on the market for the Ram platform. It uses massive 3/8″ wall DOM construction foe the bar itself, a FK rod end heim on the axle side, and an industry leading reinforced, encapsulated 7/8″ Uniball joint on the frame side. This is the last track bar you'll ever need.
CARLI DODGE RAM 03-13 2500/3500 STAINLESS LOW MOUNT STEERING STABILIZER (CS-DLMSS-T)
CARLI SUSPENSION 03-12 CARLI DODGE 2500/3500 HIGH MOUNT STEERING STABILIZER (CS-DHMSS-03-T)
CARLI DUAL OPPOSING STABILIZER SYSTEM WITH DIFF GUARD (CS-DSSOSK-T)
Steering stabilizers play a key role in fighting feedback from the road. Does your wheel get ripped out of your hands when hitting a one sided pot hole? Changes are you need a better stabilizer. Unlike most options that use normal shocks that are the right length, Carli stabilizers are specifically designed and tuned for steering applications. They also feature a nitrogen pressure adjustment to dial in the driving feel of your truck and fight tire pull. The low mount is a bolt in, factory position replacement. The high mount is great as a high clearance option when used alone, and mounts off the drag link so it's tucked up out of harm's way. If you want the best of the best, use the dual opposing setup which combines both so that you have the most damping force possible to fight feedback, and the best possible adjustment range and handling. This option also includes Carli's diff guard that's shown in the photos.
Steering boxes are a common wear item on these trucks, so we offer two proven replacements. Redhead is the industry leader in steering boxes, and their bolt in factory replacement box** is a fantastic option to freshen up the front end. For those wanting the best of the best, we also offer the Mopar Big Box. This is an OEM box from the 4th gen 4500 and 5500 trucks with beefed up internals to handle the load and stress from larger aftermarket tires. We've had great success with these boxes on trucks with 37s or ultra wide wheels.
**The Redhead Steering Box option includes a $300 core charge. This will be refunded to you upon the return of your original core.
