Front shocks

2011 4500 C&C 2wd..replaced faxtory front shocks with Monroe Magnums, not impressed, of course it still rides horribly. Anyone ever find a front shock that actually improves the ride?


97 CCLB 4x4 5-speed, 97 CCLB Dually 5-speed. 2011 4500 C&C

I just installed some Bilstein 5100s, much better than the stockers.

Stock 2016 Ram 2500 Cummins
Changes coming soon

Ram 2500.
Just realized what vehicle you were referring to, 5100s probably wouldn’t do to good on that 4500...lol

You should be able to find a Rancho RS9000 that fits (they list all the dimensions, mounts and intended application).
Then it should only be a matter of setting them to the damping you prefer.

Maybe if we start telling people that the brain is an app, they will start using it?

'14 1500 V6, '17 3500 C&C, plus a '19 3500 6.4 in the household.

The above was about as useful a suggestion as your electric water pump garbage you force feed down everyone’s throat.....

Care to show me the link on King’s website for any RAM 4500 product?

Ooops I guess my PR valve popped again. You mean the electric water pump that comes with a 2 year unlimited miles guarantee? That one?

NO, he means no show us the king shock application for a 4500. As for your electric water pump? Teats on a boar hog.
