I'm looking at a 2012 ccsb ram 2500 ctd. 4 inch lift. Running 37 13.5 20. Just asking how bad premature wear is on the front end. Ie wheelbearing. Balljoints. Tie rod ect..... Thanks for the help.

I understand that. Just looking for some input on how often the lifted 3/4 tons are replacing front end parts.

Well I have a 2012 with a 6inch Carli's kit with about 11k miles. I just replaced tie rods. I could have got more miles out of them but it was bugging me.

Ok. That makes me feel better about it. What size tire are you running? And what back spacing

I am on 37's Pro Comp a/t. I don't remember the backspacing to be honest but I will tell you I rub on the arms when I try to fully lock the wheel to the side. Aside from that love the kit itself but seems like tie rods might be a ongoing issue.

when going to bigger wheels then 35 just buy a aftermarket steering kit to ditch the weak tie rods.

wait for stock parts to wear then upgrade
