Much like the water pump recall, as soon as I heard about it I went to Geno's and (with their recommendations) got a Gates pump and slapped it on.$300 for a synergy drag link, once and done. I ordered mine 5/19 they were backordered back then, I installed it a while ago and submitted the receipt for reimbursement this week. Will see if I get a check or not, but they sounded like I would.
the truck can be aligned again, probably what they meant was the steering wheel could not be aligned again. They are only welding drag links that can be properly torqued, once they grind the nuts apart and the part between them where the weld penetrated technically those nuts would most likely ever be able to be properly be re torqued unless removed and the surface made uniform again. I think RAM has a real pickle on their hands they will have to resolve in the future. Like said many times in this thread, there is no official statement they will replace them all with adjustable links in the future. Some assume they will, but nothing official at all.
Same thing with the drag-link, grid heater bolt disaster, etc, and whatever's next. :rofl
