Carli's new 2003-2013 Dodge Ram 2500/3500 4x4 adjustable track bar is a must for any Dodge 2500/3500 4x4 suffering from wandering steering or with an aftermarket lift. The track bar will center the axle side to side and ensure proper suspension geometry. The track bar will also give a tighter feel to the front end by eliminating the O.E.M rubber bushings. Included with each track bar are all required spacers, crush sleeves, and shims to fit each specific vehicle's stock hardware. On one end is a custom F.K. Heim Joint that offers articulation and rigidity with an improved service life over other styles of bushing. On the opposite end is an heavy duty captured uniball bearing for maximum strength and life-span. A laser-cut gusset surrounds the uniball welded cup to ensure that this track bar will be the last you ever buy.SPECIFICATIONS
-Constructed from 1.50" x .375" wall Chromoly tube
-CNC bent for perfect fitment
-Fixture-welded in house
-Pre-loaded captured bushing
-Captured 7/8" FK Uniball on frame side and heim joint on the axle side
-Includes misalignment spacers
-Includes sleeves for both 14MM and 16MM applications
Fits 1994-2013 Dodge Ram 2500 4x4 and 1994-2012 Dodge Ram 3500 4x4 trucks. Fitment on 1994-2002 trucks is possible with a 3rd Party conversion bracket, but we cannot guarantee fit or clearance.
Have a worn out factory 14mm frame side bracket or bolt for your third gen? This 16mm bolt allows you to drill out the factory frame side bracket and use this 16mm bolt instead with Carli Suspension, Thuren Suspension or other aftermarket track bars that include the hardware and frame side joint to do so.
This bolt WILL NOT work with a factory 03-07 14mm frame side joint track bar. It must be used with a track bar designed for a 16mm frame side bolt.
-4130 Adjustable Track Bar
-Stainless Steel Low Mount Stabilizer (Y-style includes a required Clamp to adapt the stabilizer to steering arms)
-Extreme Duty Ball Joints

Being fine-tuned over the last 5 years, Thuren Fabrication's track bar makes a huge difference in steering and suspension feel. Add a lift, bigger tires, or some performance suspension components, and it becomes one of the best handling improvements you can make. Feedback through the wheel becomes almost nonexistent, and overall suspension and steering performance and safety is improved.
Each bend is precisely placed and designed to reduce flex, which is one of the biggest factors contributing to bad performance from other units. Thuren uses DOM tubing for its resilient qualities(unlike Chromoly), being that some flex IS going to happen, with such a heavy vehicle weight. Contrary to what you may think, any defection in the trackbar bushings reduces ride quality and safety, along with ADDING to road feedback.
Being the first track bar to market for the 3rd gen Rams, specifically designed to combat Death Wobble and improve handling and safety, you know you will get the best possible product. While Death Wobble can be a tough situation to combat, as the trackbar alone is not the only source, it is usually the first place to start.
2003-2007.5 trucks will use a 14mm bolts, while 2008-2013 trucks will use a 16mm bolt.

BE SURE TO READ THE IMPORTANT UPGRADE NOTES BELOW IF YOU HAVE A 2005-2008 MODEL YEAR TRUCK!!!
2005 to approximately 2007.5 trucks used 14mm bolts(18mm socket head) on both ends. Around the middle of 2007 some trucks were coming with a 14mm bolt on one side, and a 16mm(21mm head) bolt on the other. If you have a 2007-2008 truck and you are unsure if you have mismatched hardware, you should purchase the above option with hardware(we send OEM nuts and bolts from the Ram dealer with this option) and plan to possibly drill out the mounting flange(s) to a 5/8"(16mm) hole. If you have a 2003-2007 truck, this is a good option also which will let you upgrade to the better hardware by drilling out the mounting flanges.
- First place to start if your vehicle has ANY strange handling traits.
- Made from 1.50"x3/8" wall 1026 DOM tube.
- Delrin machined frame side bushing.
- CNC machined form-threaded heim joint tube end.

- Grease fitting for frame bushing.
- Extreme duty FK Teflon lined rod end at axle side.
- DOES NOT FUNCTION WITH LARGER AFTERMARKET DIFF COVERS!!!!!
Our trackbar is designed to be VERY rigid, and often people will think that having a rigid track bar will give steering vibration and rattle. Regarding the track bar, this not true, being that the trackbar is the only steering support. If the support(trackbar) deflects, the truck will be allowed to basically steer itself as you encounter bumps/ruts/holes/etc. A rigid trackbar is the only way to be sure that inputs you make to the steering wheel, will actually get TO the wheels.
