His Service Order has the part numbers of the new drag link.
Please let me/us know if you are successful in obtaining the upgraded DL.

i tried to order those at my dealer. he said there is no way they could order those parts because those are recall specific part numbers.
he did say when the 2019 parts are available, i could order those. they would have a different number

Only reason I said alignment was because FCA was paying for it. Like you said, it isn't needed.

FCA actually sent one to a Cummins forum member. Itís back somewhere in this thread. The New FCA draglink is adjustable and built along more traditional lines.
- For now I have my draglink held with loctite and check it regularly. There has been no movement. I plan on replacing the DL with the 2019 model part Sometime in the future.
Hmmm interesting, I'll ask my buddy about it, thanks.

b5dart70 I posted this in another thread...this is what I was told talking to FCA for over an hour the other night.

"Just had my 18 delivered to my home town (I am currently deployed to Afghanistan till OCT), I had it sent to my buddys house as he is the lead service tech at a local dealership by me. He took it to work to go over everything, and look everything over. It has 3 recalls...one being the Drag Link.

I advised him that I did NOT want the welded drag link as this will make it NOT adjustable. I already have Thuren coil springs 2.75", adjustable track bar, sway bar, tires/wheels, and shocks heading to the house. So it makes NO sense to have this welded "now" prior to me installing these parts just to have to have the alignment redone when I get home in October.

He told me that his boss would NOT allow a vehicle to leave the dealership without the "FIX" being done, and I told him that this is unacceptable...he advised me to call FCA so I did...

FCA told me that they are no longer reimbursing any Synergy parts as they are not MOPAR, she advised me to find a OEM replacement "Mopar" part, I told her "if there was a MOPAR part available we wouldn't be having this discussion". After 1hr29 mins on the phone....She told me that anything prior to the recall coming out was able to be reimbursed and now since there is a recall they will no longer reimburse aftermarket parts. Furthermore, she stated that if I DECLINED the weld fix at the dealer, it would be noted in the system, and they would 100% not reimburse me for any parts to fix this. Basically they backed me into a corner and said you HAVE to get this done in order to get your truck out from the dealership.

Luckily my buddy said he would NOT weld it, and just Loctite the hell out of it for me and we can revisit the drag link once I add my new parts. I just think this is a crock of S*** as there is no replacement part and the only solution they have is to provide a NON adjustable drag link bush fix...this simply does NOT work for me. "

They paid me for labor and alignment.

This is true and I have changed plenty of clocksprings and air bags as a collision tech. But I wasn't considering that, just that the wheel itself does not care where it is. Airbag components are a different story.
