Bk1911 Replaced my DDP +50hp injectors with new stock size. Ran them for about one year. Loved the performance of the +50s but just didn't like slight puff of smoke when taking off from a stop. They are up for sale if anyone may be interested. After driving with the stock injectors Im missing the performance.

lorenzo816 @verdesardog I may take you up on that steering shaft. I got some more noise in there. What made you think you had to replace yours?

In the past few weeks/months, i have put in new unit bearings, ball joints, rear shock bushings, control arm bushings, and finally replaced the entire T steering setup (again with OEM dodge).
I think there is still play somewhere causing wiggle vibrations when I hit certain bumps. At least the serious death wobble is gone when I did the control arm bushings. I'm still too damn high though on an Old lift that isn't even sold anymore by Fabtech. Was hoping I could re-use my current Arms but they are too long for even a 3" lift.

verdesardog Complete front end. Carli level kit including springs shocks and sway bar links. Thuren control arms. Synergy steering kit, tie rod and drag link with greaseble, replaceable end links. Borgeson steering shaft. I found after removing my OEM shaft that it was just fine so if someone needs one from my 06 CDT just pay shipping and it's yours.
And that was after over $2000 for new wheels and tires!

nopavement Finished up some front end work on my 04. It only had 73k on the odometer and bone stock when i bought it last year, started to have a small death wobble so pulled the plug on switching the Y steering out and ended up going over board, same story since the beginning of time

Red Art Nothing major but I changed the fluid in my differentials. Next week I’m changing transfer case and transmission fluids.

jmcmurray After my P0700 code I checked the codes with another reader and got P2509 and another one that indicated power issues. I decided it was time to redo the battery cable ends from this (and yes, that's a hose clamp holding a steel plate to replace the broken tab of the original clamp):

to the military style with lugs. The cables themselves were a bit green/corroded inside so next time there's a power issue it will have to be new cables all around.

I also pulled the transmission connectors per Broncowilly and after a short test drive successfully delivered the bales. I still need a different code reader to clear the P0700 (and or find out the deeper codes that may point to some other issue) but for now I'll just drive it.

s10010001 I put my lower overloads back in the 2500 today. Removing them made the ride a big softer but over time it started to feel sloppy. And I was surprised how often I was loading the bed, considering Iím not camping right now. It sags quiet a bit without them with even a ski boat, let alone a 5th wheel haha. I think Iím gonna save up for a full progressive leaf pack, no overloads, no spacers, and maybe some of those sulastic shackles.

For now, the overloads are back in. I did like the ride height without it (reversal leveled). It was a hair higher in the back still. So I left two spacers out. Gave the leaf pack some new grade 8 bolts too. I have air bags I can put in if needed.
