Re: '16 Steering Intermediate Shaft advise

The PSC gearboxes retain the factory gear sets. The box is a new Mopar casting that is machined for larger main bearings. That is what wears out, the gears themselves tend to not wear unless a bearing or pump fails and you get metal fines in there or if your bearings go out and you adjust the box. N...

Re: '16 Steering Intermediate Shaft advise

How much play do you have in your wheel, and is your wheel dead on center when you’re driving straight? The factory gearbox must have play in it. When the steering wheel is dead center it will have the least play. There isn’t anything to really wear out in the intermediate shaft except for the vulca...

Re: Death Wobble 2011

A steering stabilizer does not cause, nor is it needed to prevent, death wobble. I haven’t run one in three years on my 2011. They do help but will never address the root cause. The first sketchy thing I see is that they replaced the drag link. Your drag link has zero affect on death wobble. The ONL...

Re: Thuren boogie bumps help

They’re amazing and work great on a stock truck. There’s no need to hesitate. The perk of the Boogies is that you basically feel nothing when you hit them.

antenna mounts for rambox?

I’d be happy to make a corner plate into an antenna mount. The geometry and mounting is all figured out as it’s part of my racks. One plate with antenna mounting and grounding would be a easy solution and leave your bed rails open for a tonneau.

Re: Thurens newer fox 2.0’s?

That is going to be an improvement but probably not a major one. If you were coming from stock shocks it would be worth it. Coming from Overland’s, I’d suggest going to a bigger shock if you’ve felt what a better shock does to the truck and you want more performance. The new aluminum bodied 2.0 is b...

Re: Brakes slow to release.

The slide pins on all year dodges are horrible for seizing. As soon as the protective boot gets cut that pin seizes. Can cause some funky issues, rapid brake wear, occasional squealing that comes and goes, changes in brake feel. Do what the other guys said first to check the fluid because the slide ...

It's not adjustable. Comes pre charged. The older fox version I have on my 99 is and anything over about 60 or so would cause it to push the wheel too much.

The Z36 pads are a nice modest improvement over stock brakes. I find they like a little bit of heat, once you get them a bit warm they grab well.
