ok, so after the recent installation of the 37's i have met the unfortunate death wobble evil. i recently did 4" PP coils, 5100's, PP track bar drop, drop pitman, and PP comfort control arms, but ran it that way with NO alignment on the 35" Toyo's for about 3 weeks, and it just started with the 37's. had it aligned today at the dealership to the caster settings recommended to help, and same issues. dealership stated there was a good bit of play in the tie rod ends and steering box (i have a BD brace) and that the stabilizer is leaking (old Rancho). Found a good deal on the 08.5 steering upgrade, so ordered that to start. What about steering box? Im thinming redhead, as im not chanfing out my brand new drop pitman to use the mopar upgrade box. Any luck with parts store boxes? Now need to pick a stabilizer to go with it. Can i use a 5100? and all help is appreciated!

IIRC pitman arm to go to +08.5 is going to have to be different.
I got tired of Dodge's tie rod recall on recall. I just used moog problem solver greasables and raybestos greasable premium parts.

I highly recommend Carli stainless stabilizers, had a year now, in Northeast, still looks like new. Your going to have to see which way tires pull on which to buy, high or low mount. I switch back and forth at to mt tires , ended up with both, and Carli diff cover. truck steers exactly, where you put it, I use for Carli items, reach out for George he knows his dodge front ends good guy, quick ship.
I say bigger OEM box with drop pitman arm is safest bet if you cant adjust yours.
