My regular RT suspension is wasted. (I'm just too rough on the girl;0)
Anybody willing to part with low mile SRT or R/T with R/T perf. springs and shocks (ie, the whole swap out)...

I know some of the "got coilover" guys might have them or lots of the parts... In any event, please chime in or PM if you have stuff.

Thanks everyone.

I'm not sure I'm going to need replacement shocks/springs... (I'd LIKE them but right now I gotta fix for as little $$ as possible)

After the dealer replaced my steering rack for $1000 and told me a shock was leaking too... I took the car to some old car guys and in 5 minutes they found the Tension strut bushing on both sides where cracked and loose.

Part 3 in this pic...

Well, I did something I should have done to begin with... Unhook a sway bar link and tie it up for test drive...
NO CLUNKING!!!

So, my shocks are soft but I think the sway bar links(part #17 above) are what is making all the racket. I can find them for $84 a piece but I was hoping I could get replacement bushings for them instead of replacing the whole metal link.

Still looking.

Autozone carries the AWD version, the 2wd they dont, stupid ball joint design on them, like they did with the 2nd Gen Rams.


Rock Auto has Dana/Spicers for $48.79 each or Moogs for $46.79 each.

on a separate note, they have SRT rims for $389, just not sure if thats an OEM or aftermarket cast.

Called the local dealer and the sway links are $23. I don't know what is going on with the oneline OEM catalogs but ALL of them have retail at $111?!!?

Moog is a Federal Mogul brand, which is a good brand for suspension pieces.

i deal alot in 4wd suspension stuff, alot of guys (including my sell) would always choose a Spicer part over anything else. i dont remember if they were listed as "Professional Grade" or "Red Grade", but pick the Pro-Grade version.

Rock Auto is awesome, i need a hydraulic hose for the clutch on my K5 Blazer, Advanced Auto was the only store that carried it, but wanted like $75, i had gotten thru RA for $30, and it was the same Raybestos part.


Do you still need those pictures i promised you of my shocks earlier in the week?

and on the dealer wanting $23, maybe that was for the AWD links which has a bushing at bolt ends, you now they arent always the brightest.

Any chance the noise might have been from the sway bar bushings themselves? I have this annoying clunking sound from my front end that only seems to happen on small imperfections and not large ones. As I put on my snow tires this afternoon, I noticed how sloppy the bushings looked... doesn't look normal, unless it's designed to 'flare' this way if the brackets are on tight enough.
