Hey guys I have an 04 that I am basically gutting the front end on and want to know where is the best deal on the newer steering upgrade..and is it greaseable?
2004 2500 4X4 Mag-Hytec Tranny Pan, Frantz TP Filter, Coolant Filter, MBRP 4" TBE with FTE Resonator, Raptor100 with WS and 2 Mic Filter also in box, XRF Ball Joints and All 4 Tie Rods
IAFF LOCAL 142
I would go to the dealer and get oem parts like the pump and gear box/hoses. When it comes to ball joints and tie rods look at moog brand, can be found at Napa and Advance Auto parts. Also Summit Racing carries them and has a great web site. Alot of guys say Carli cause they have the tough bullet proof uppers, but they are over 500.00. Really guys? If Carli would make em a little more affordable they would sell twice as many and prob make more money off of them anyways.

just beware that the new steering upgrade is not greaseable and on some trucks it cane have handling problums iam in this situation now put new balljoints and hubs and steering gear and the upgraded steering linkage in and the truck drives like crap all over the road put the old linkage in drives great so you tell me now i have a 300.00 linkage that dodge wont take back and dealer has many hours of phone time and shop time he will never get so beware''
The new upgraded steering is the way to go, just drill and tap them for zirks. Also, the Carli balljoints are the best and will last the life of the truck. If you plan on being hard on the truck at all or are planning on keeping it a long while, the Carli joints will be worth it. Made a huge difference on my truck.
