Re: Sway and oscillation

i never wanted to assume tire pressures or alignment may be the issue

Re: Sway and oscillation

You know, my 18 with 36k miles has alot of sway...but i find it self induced, or needing to be induced by other roadwork/steering wheel response... I have posted this prior and best part is, you can have somewhat an idea that it may not be springs or shocks. or maybe even track bars... i have every ...

Re: Trackbar or other popping sound

Have someone start the truck and wiggle the steering wheel back and forth. While you are looking at all the suspension points. Pay attention to the trackbar mounting points. Also check your u-joints and ball joints. i have tried this, but this popping sound, like others, started after the thuren li...

this is what i was going to try next. i also have a rear end tactile contact noise over large bumps through the compression motion of the shock.
could be that shock/frame contact that was noticed a few weeks ago. was going to try and find that as well

Re: Trackbar or other popping sound

Have you looked at you upper intermediate steering shaft coupler? The rubber in the isolator fails and you will get slop and a click in the wheel that can also be felt in the brake/throttle as they are all part of the same sub-assembly attached to the firewall. EMF has a press in bushing fix that I...

Trackbar or other popping sound

Still think it’s your trackbar? Why I can’t locate the continued popping/thrusting sounds emanating from the undercarriage is beyond me. It comes, it’s goes. It has to be the trackbar and axle shifting, by why can I not discern any abnormal wear or movement in this bolt and thuren bar setup. Has any...

Re: King 2.5 Shock Body / Frame Contact

obviously many of us can look. GOOD FIND

My driver side has surface rub...clearly made contact as well, missing some blue but overall did not flatten my cap like your frame rail did.

should be easy to clear the opening somewhat, but that there looks like something may be out of alignment.

Re: Poll: Ram TRX vs Supercharged PW w/thuren king 37s

I wonder how much of a difference a supercharger would make on these 8klb pigs? Especially with heavy 37" tires. I feel like we would need at least 150+hp and 150+tq to make a noticeable difference. Does anyone want to volunteer as tribute for next year's PWIM? 😁 It wont increase our 0-60 time more...

Re: Sonnax Line Pressure Booster for 545rfe and 66rfe

Holy Crap. i think my shifts were so "off" that i can immediately tell that the shifts have less hesitation, hang time, and no lurching. cant promise that it wont grenade the trans eventually...but it does what it says it will do. And it did so for me nearly immediately?! Its more noticeable when th...

Re: Sonnax Line Pressure Booster for 545rfe and 66rfe

my plan is to build out the entire trans with billet and tune once it finally gives up. It can take power, its just tuned like trash and QC like trash. im currently experiencing TC lockup issues where it wont lock up from parked into D or R. Takes alot of revs to get moving when cold. already had va...

Re: Sonnax Line Pressure Booster for 545rfe and 66rfe

The quality of the Valve body is our real issue... low pressure shifts would be ok if the directed pressure didnt divert beyond the proper channels. i wonder if the higher pressures make the compromised valve body deteriorate further. If it wasnt for that spring, i was also going to do that upgrade....

Re: Hemi Towing coolant and transmission Temperatures?

since you modified your trans, you may as well throw additional cooling capacity in there. Another radiator would do alot for you.
