Got a set of Bilstein 4600's installed. The fronts were fairly easy, but what a PITA the stock rears were to get off with the top nuts acting like they were on with red locktite. Had to cut one of the nuts off with my Dremel, the other I was able to deal with it with by cutting out the bushing with a razor knife and get large vise-grips on the shaft.
Why in the world are the rears like that, when the front nuts spun off by hand once cracked loose? Especially since my truck spent most of its life in California and has no rust. I have changed shocks in every Ram I have owned, at least six and never came across this. Thank gawd for beer, I needed a couple after that fiasco.
