Customer Question

I have a 2005 ram 3500 4x4 diesel and cant seem to get the front end under control. have had stabilizer bushing replaced numerous times, ball joints, and tie rods replaced. even added frame to frame steering box stabilizer and as soon as I fix one thing something else needs replaced again. It gets a death wobble about every 2-3 months. any ideas?

235/80/r17 yes they have been replaced twice. sorry took so long to reply, had some things going on.

Are these tires the correct 10 ply tires?? The size should have an preceding "LT" and additional identification number after the tire size. Can you post the complete tire size along with the brand and model of the tires?

they are LT, and yes they are 10 ply. This is a farm truck that gets used in fairly rough conditions, plus we have rather nasty roads here that tend to beat up front ends anyway but, we have two other Dodge trucks, a 2002, and a 2010, both one ton diesel 4x4's that are subjected to the same abuse and don't have any trouble with them. I guess what I'm looking for is to find out if that particular year of truck has a design that inhibits its toughness, which is what I've been told but can't seem to verify. I've even been told there is an aftermarket kit that you can change steering linkages to Ford style but can't seem to find it. I am extremely busy and don't want to waste a lot of time and money chasing urban legends. But, I really like the truck and am willing to spend the money if there is a legit fix.

Chrysler has updated parts for the front steering linkage (Different design). If you can post the last 8 digits of the VIN, I can research this for you and get you the correct part numbers needed for this upgrade....

Keep me posted...

Thank you,
