Re: Rear Springs tuftruck ttc-1225

Those look like 1500 springs. I'd return those and get Airlift Airbags 5000 and Daystar Cradles. That way you keep your flex and can airup to tow.

Re: Rear Springs tuftruck ttc-1225

Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Ultimate airbags (88289) and Daystar airbag cradles that won’t negatively affect ride quality or suspension range of motion.

Or 1.5” spacers on heavy springs that will ride like a dump truck when unloaded.

I know which one I’d pick.

This caught my attention. Would you elaborate?
Low volume parts for 11 year old trucks get obsoleted and existing stock gets used up.

Re: Bouncing Problemos

I am installing my Thuren 2.5 setup this weekend, assuming weather cooperates. I ended up going keeping the OE PW rear springs, and going with the Thuren +1/2" springs up front... so CG shouldn't take much of a hit and didn't make spring rates worse in the rear. Hoping that between more aggressive ...

The thing about the rocks is that it's literally an aluminum can. It doesn't take much.

Yes, they do get destroyed. My local driveline shop told me that the shaft length on my 2015 was too long for steel, there would be balancing/vibration problems at high speed.

Re: Well...this sucks

Shock mounts are weak BUT if all the geometry is correct should never break because they should never see downward force. The shock should stop before that. The bumpstop stops the downward force before force is applied to the shock mount. In the up swing the shock mount would see some light extendi...

Re: Torq's Build - 2017 RAM Power Wagon (Nickname Undecided)

It's a tight fit between any 17" wheel and the brake calipers. Your shop should be using the thin stick on weight and being careful about where they put them. If those Nittos need a lot of weight to balance, you might have issues. My tape weights routinely get scrubbed off when offroading and mud/gr...

I don't think we have corn gas anywhere in the state. I believe we do import some fuel from the lower 48, but I guess we abstain from the corn stuff for compatibility with the real stuff we refine up here.
