Maybe find a modded truck at a dealership and take it for a test drive Haha.
They're alot of suspension upgrades out there. One is to put a T style tie rod/drag link assembly from an 08.5-12 Ram. Theres also aftermarket kits for the steering box that includes a brace and extra bearing. These are the 1st two upgrades I'm going for once my turbo is in order.

Well after not being able to get it sealed and then this happened... I checked my new FASS lift pump and I realized I wont even be able to use the banjo bolt adapter once my lift pump is on. Ordered a 1/2" pushlock tee adapter instead.

DOUBLEOCUMMINS Also any one know if I'm suppose to use a thread sealant on the fuel pressure sensor? I can't get it stop dripping.
But I am using a glowshift banjo adapter because I didn't know I needed one when I bought the sensor from quadzilla

Any plumbers putty or a specific brand? I was thinking of using muffler/tail pipe sealant but I'm afraid of taking it out and then not being able to seal it again. Because it's a very small exhaust leak right now.

Ok that's good to hear. Been kicking my self all day about it.
Do you think the small exhaust leak will do any harm?

the fitting out of the exhaust stream to prevent restricting exhaust flow.
Only the probe sticks out into the exhaust stream.
In place and holding fine for 5 years.





The fitting doesn't quite stick through, roof of left port...probe is not in the pic.

Yes I messed up. I ran mine all the way in. There isn't a noticable leak but with soapy water there is some bubbles around the probe.
